Two Detroiters will be featured on Sunday night's episode of "Shark Tank" on Channel 7. Their company makes clothes to fit shorter men.

Steven Mazur said he and his partner started "Ash and Erie" after walking into a store and realizing nothing fits. Now, the clothing line is designed for men 5-feet-8 and under.

They have shirts, jeans, dress shirts, flannels, casual button-downs and more.

"We've been in Detroit since the very beginning. We both started our careers here and decided that Detroit was an important part of building this company," Mazur said.

After realizing "Ash and Erie" could go far, they decided to pitch their idea to "Shark Tank."

The company was originally named "Ash and Anvil" but had to change because of a larger company.

We tried to squeeze a few secrets out of what happened, but Mazur said we'll just have to watch.

"The whole process was a lot of fun," he added. "It's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be able to pitch to these billionaires that everybody knows and the whole thing was a great time."
