How to Look Taller and Leaner | 5 Style Principles You Should Follow

12686 ratings | 837060 views
Follow TMM on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/modestmanstyle/ There are certain techniques you can use to make sure your clothing and accessories are making you look as tall and lean as possible. Obviously, your clothes can't actually MAKE you taller, but they can have a visible impact on your perceived stature. In this video, I teach you five style principles you can use to make sure your clothes and accessories are working FOR you, not against you. Here are the five tips: 00:54 #1: Make sure your clothes fit 02:36 #2: Make sure your accessories are proportionate 03:53 #3: Don't cut yourself in half with contrast 05:03 #4: Wear small scale patterns 06:00 #5: Avoid low-rise pants If you follow these five principles, you will look like the lean, handsome devil you really are. And if you want more "dress tall" tips, check out my free guide (link below). And remember: there's NOTHING wrong with being short. If anyone tell you differently, they're just insecure about their own body and personality. Don't worry about your height. Instead, focus on things you can actually control, like trying to dress well every single day! — SPONSOR: http://www.the5th.co/ — SHOP THE VIDEO ▪ Shirt: https://www.tailorstore.com/ ▪ Watch: http://www.the5th.co/products/aki/ — MY GEAR ▪ Canon T6i → http://geni.us/4kSX ▪ Laptop → http://fave.co/2hgKaDF ▪ Laptop stand → http://fave.co/2vQwBj3 ▪ Lens #1 (50mm) → http://geni.us/OiE9 ▪ Lens #2 (10-18mm) → http://geni.us/qgGQckE ▪ Lens #3 (24mm) → http://geni.us/x61A ▪ Lav mic → http://geni.us/ZBlvGh ▪ Desk mic → http://geni.us/wCdS7t2 — YOUTUBE MUSIC → https://goo.gl/UhwtMb — STYLE GUIDES ▪ Free E-Books → http://mdst.mn/guide-pack ▪ Premium Guide → http://mdst.mn/tmmsg — FOLLOW ME ▪ Podcast → http://fave.co/2vej94M ▪ Instagram → https://www.instagram.com/modestmanstyle/ ▪ Twitter → https://twitter.com/modestmanstyle ▪ Facebook → https://www.facebook.com/modestmanblog/ ▪ Private Group → https://www.facebook.com/groups/modestmen — Contains affiliate links // Stay stylish!

Just shove a sock under the front of your pants and women will like you regardless of clothes looking good or not.
megaCombo (4 days ago)
This guide is good. But mostly if you are insecure about your height. Just get paid, find a girl who likes you for who you are, and dress however you want cause in the end, we are just dust in the wind.

Long legs or disproportionately long legs to torso, is an attractive feature in women, but this isn't the same for men, in men it';s actually slightly the opposite. Although if you are a man trying to look taller, making legs look longer may help.

I know they are your sponsors, but as a supposedly fashion advisor, at the very least you could do is to find a better watch sponsor.
The Modest Man (1 month ago)
Check out my more recent videos. The 5th was the first watch I really loved and wore regularly. I don't wear "fashion watches" anymore, but I still credit the brand for getting me into watches. I wouldn't own a Seiko, Hamilton or Rolex today if I hadn't worked with The 5th back then.

I’m 6 foot 8 and am jealous of short guys at times. Being the size I am has some distinct disadvantages The advice at the end of this vid is really good. If you are a shorter guy you are fine....and your knees, hips, and ankles will outlast the knees and ankles on big guys.
Mister Tee (1 month ago)
I think the poses and facial expressions in the photos make the suit comparison problematic

You really have the talent to make a 9 mins video seem like 3 mins. That was smooth and helpful, thanks a lot :)
MimAesthetic (1 month ago)
Tzazilas because it's all useful information not rambling...or unnatural adverts for sponsored content.
ZHANG TEOLIA (2 months ago)
Hey, quick question. A pair of slim fit or skinny fit jeans will make you look leaner and taller but those two fits are usually low rise. straight fit jeans are usually mid rise yet they don't give you the lean look. How to choose the best jeans for myself though?
ZHANG TEOLIA (2 months ago)
+The Modest Man Thank you for answering man. :)
The Modest Man (2 months ago)
There are lots of slim/skinny jeans that aren’t low rise out there these days. My favorites are from Peter Manning NYC.

I saw a short guy wearing high rise pants, although his torso was big but he looked noticeably shorter than he usually looked. I think short guys should stick to medium rise...
Thomas Margolis (3 months ago)
They are not a sponsor, yet you devote that much time? Like television, content in between commercials.
The Modest Man (3 months ago)
They are the sponsor of this video (as mentioned at the beginning and in the description).

According to the thumbnail, you can look leaner and taller by changing the colour of your t-shirt and shoes.

Sorry for the wrong grammar. Correct phrase should be “...they work well for me.”

I am 5'8 with a fitting leg length of 31 to 32 in. My upper body is already small in relation to my legs. Should I still use high rise pants?
The Modest Man (4 months ago)
Low rise pants will be better for you 👍🏻

Great video. What would you recommend for guys who are short and bigger. I'm 5'6 and 230, but used to be 300 so working on losing the rest. And I agree, fit makes the difference, but how do you get the right fit without showing off all the love handles and everything else, but still looking good. Love the channel

i enjoy watching these style videos but one thing that annoys me is their nail. Get a manicure...they’re only $15 to $20. Nails are one of the first thing I check out in a guy to see how well they take care of themselves.

Was wondering what you think about this leg breaking, leg lengthening $100,000 surgery, I could do it but it seems insane. Im 5' 7''. Im very successful, older than you. Its low confidence around womens. Part of this is my mom commenting while growing up and our culture of anti-short.

Seikowski V (7 months ago)
Low rise men's pants have been "in" for decades now, to the point where I have looked pretty hard and cannot even find high rise pants. Low rise pants look bad on tall people too, so I am not sure why designers are keeping the trend "in style."

How do you minimise the effect if you have to wear white shirt/dark trousers such as in an office job?
The Modest Man (8 months ago)
Wear a jacket or sweater over your shirt.
