Ash and Anvil Clothing Update | Shark Tank Season 9

Detroit friends, Eric and Steven, found they had a big problem that other men have as well. They are of shorter stature and could never find clothes, especially dress shirts, that fit. The clothes were always too baggy and looked sloppy. To find a more tailored fit, they had to find shirts in the kids’ section. Talk about a confidence booster. With a few of the sharks themselves being men shorter men, will they invest in this Season 9 business? Let’s see if they make a great fit with the entrepreneurs in this Shark Tank Ash and Anvil update.

Ash and Anvil Update

Ash and Anvil Update

  • Entrepreneur: Steven Mazur and Eric Huang
  • Business: Dress shirts for shorter guys
  • Ask: $100,000 for 12.5% equity
  • Result: $100,000 for 25% equity
  • Shark: Mark Cuban

Eric and Steven began their business by inviting over other short men and having a makeshift fashion show. They discussed what they liked about the shirts and most of the men were surprised to find a shirt that actually fit right.

Robert Herjavec didn’t feel like he was the right partner and dropped out. Lori Greiner followed shortly after for the same reason. Daymond John couldn’t accept the fact that he was in the target market of short men and dropped out.

This left Kevin O’Leary and Mark Cuban swimming in the tank. Mark offered $150,000 for 25% equity. Steven and Eric asked if they could hear what Kevin had to say; Mark said no. Kevin then offered $100,000 for 15% equity. Mark dropped out.

Because of the events that took place, Steven swiftly responded saying if Mark was still in they’d make the deal. Mark came back in and they made a deal at his original offer of $150,000 for 25%, leaving Kevin empty-handed.

If you’re looking for a Shark Tank Ash and Anvil update, you’ll need to keep looking. They are still in business but under the name of Ash & Erie. On their website, they have several different clothing options in addition to their original dress shirt. Products include tees, polos, jeans, outerwear, flannels, and more.

They have an inspiring page on their website telling their story, that really shows how much they care about helping short men succeed. Since appearing on the show, Ash & Erie sold over $1 million in 6 months. At the time of this Ash and Anvil update, they have sold over $5 million. I would say that is a win for all the short men in the world!
