All Sizes Are Created Equal

In recent years, there’s been something of a revolution in the women’s clothing industry, driven by a chorus of voices speaking up about the lack of representation for different types and sizes of bodies. As a result of the public voicing their opinion on this, more designers and retailers are now providing better clothing options for women of all shapes and sizes, rather than just for those whose bodies are in the narrow corridor of what is considered to be “average.”

What gets spoken about less frequently, however, is that there’s a similar issue in the world of men’s clothing. If you’re a man between 5’7″ and 6’3″, then you probably don’t have too many problems finding clothes that fit you reasonably well. Anyone under or over those heights, though, knows that the farther you get away from that magic range, the more difficult it is to find your perfect size. This is especially true when it comes to sport coats and suits.

For many men, the frustration of being excluded in shops drives them to go home and research online for the right size. However, the problem then is that there’s always a big risk with quality. When you order something online, there’s no telling what’s going to arrive in the mail – you just take your chances and hope for the best, which is not ideal if how you look is important to you. Also, if you’ve ever had to return or exchange something you bought online, you know how exasperating it is to have to play that back-and-forth game.

At Ken’s we want to honor the fact that no two bodies are exactly the same, and provide great options for every customer who comes in looking for quality. After some trial and error, we’ve come up with a solution to level the playing field for men of all sizes. We now have a special touch screen on the sales floor that gives the customer real-time updates on our warehoused inventory of basic suits – see below for more information on the wide range of available sizes.

The Ken’s suits and sport coats can arrive within three to four days, and can be tailored in the same amount of time.

We’re excited about having this special touch screen technology to help our customers find exactly what they need. Regardless of our individual body types and sizes, we all deserve to look our best, all the time. Having that ease of access for every man who walks into our shop is what Ken’s is all about.
