Ash & Anvil is a clothing company that makes casual button-down shirts and jeans specifically for shorter guys — those who are 5’8″ and under. The founders of Ash & Anvil, Steven Mazur (5’6″) and Eric Huang (5’8″) are pitching their retail company on Shark Tank on October 22. With the dapper 5’7″ retail guru millionaire Daymond John as one of the potential investors, Ash & Anvil have a good shot of winning John over. If not as an investor, than as a customer! Since taping the episode, over the summer, Ash & Anvil has changed its name to Ash & Erie.
While the name has changed, the high quality of Ash & Erie’s shirts has not. Thee Classic Collection of shirts sell for $79 online, and their slim fit jeans with inseams starting at 25″ sell for $159. We haven’t yet seen Daymond John dressed in casual shirt and jeans on Shark Tank — but for the right kind of partnership, maybe he would! Ash & Erie figure to work the other end of a booming market in tall guy apparel, with retailers like Big & Tall and specific tall guy categories at chic online brands like ASOS. Makes sense that for every tall guy, there’s a guy who’s not so tall. Ash & Erie have a message for those guys: they have your back covered, literally. Shark Tank airs Sundays at 9pm on ABC, right after America’s Funniest Home Videos.
