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

14060 ratings | 916428 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!

I appreciate the effort you put into your productions. On the psychological level I ask always what the point is going through all this chore if it does not lead to getting laid! Narcissism seems to flourish rampant. Just my observation :)

It’s well documented that your appearance influences your mood and sense of competence (as well as the way your perceived, of course).

Why the face? (1:26) It stopped me from watching (and subscribing) coz I know the video is manipulative NOT in a subtle way! Just very obvious.
The Modest Man (1 day ago)
You’d make that face too if your suit fit that poorly off the rack 😉

I'm unsubscribing those alpham and tmf channels. They don't give content like him anymore. Seriously, no kidding. This channel is for real. It cares for my time and doesn't make videos based on a sponsor. While the alpha and other bitches keep repeating the same shit.

They are all great in their own ways, and they all put effort into what they do. No point comparing one to another. I dig them all. The most congenial and natural personality among them comes out on top for me.

Although I understand your "break" concept in theory where you don't want to break the line between top and bottom as a shorter guy I am going to add that the biggest problem of shorter guys is simply if they have short legs so all you really have to do is elongate your legs by cutting your top short and have minimal crotch length on your pants and tailor everything to taper your body as closely as possible. It would not matter what colour combination you were if you did the above. Obviously be skinny or athletic build not fat coz short guys cannot hide or get away with any fat at all.
hermest99 (1 month ago)
lol the 5 o'clock bar of the watch at 0:33 is already broken off.. They may look clean, but a broken watch out of the box? Couldn't have been good quality.
jjsan27 (1 month ago)
The first suit is much better. You look like some high school kid in that second fit. There's a reason the other is a classic fit..it's more "straight" and masculine.

Wearing the perfect suit does not get you the job. Body language, voice and attitude do.
The Modest Man (2 months ago)
I never said it was the only thing that matters, but it absolutely helps.
Emanuel Hillmann (2 months ago)
I like the video. A little suggestion that will greatly improve your presentation: get a manicure. Looks like you are shewing your nails and need cuticles removed. Anyone may look nice in a nice suit but if your nails are dirty, shewed and abandoned you have less chance of being hired. The other thing even if you do not own an expensive pair of leather shoes, please clean and polish the ones you have. A clean, nice smelling, neat person with a firm but not overpowering grip that looks straight into the eyes of the interviewer will have way better chance to get hired even if you do not own the most expensive clothing. Most companies are aware that many applicants are recently graduated, you as human resources can recognize a diamond in the rough and educate the new hire in the type of presentation and culture that the company has.

Just shove a sock under the front of your pants and women will like you regardless of clothes looking good or not.
megaCombo (3 months 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 (4 months 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.

I think the poses and facial expressions in the photos make the suit comparison problematic

Tzazilas because it's all useful information not rambling...or unnatural adverts for sponsored content.
ZHANG TEOLIA (5 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 (5 months ago)
+The Modest Man Thank you for answering man. :)
The Modest Man (5 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...

They are not a sponsor, yet you devote that much time? Like television, content in between commercials.

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.

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?

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
