Poor Seth Green! He's running out of places to shop!

The LA Times is reporting that the market for stores specializing in short clothes for men is quickly disappearing.

Apparently, there's two things to blame it on: the recession and men come taller nowadays.

Over the course of 50 years, the average height of men has increased by 2", to 5'10" when in 1960 it was 5'8".

Retailers are also pointing the finger at the 1990s, specifically the day that was once known as "Casual Friday". They believe that since businesses started allowing a more lax work attire, men just don't have the need to buy a good suit.

Sad.

Now that word is out about there being a gap in the market, maybe someone will jump at the opportunity to start catering to the little guys!
