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

11295 ratings | 759422 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!

You really have the talent to make a 9 mins video seem like 3 mins. That was smooth and helpful, thanks a lot :)
ZHANG TEOLIA (13 days 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 (11 days ago)
+The Modest Man Thank you for answering man. :)
The Modest Man (13 days 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.
The Modest Man (1 month 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 (1 month 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 appreciate the brand for getting me into watches, but I’ve sold all of my fashion watches in favor of brands like Seiko, Hamilton and Rolex.

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 (5 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 (5 months ago)
Wear a jacket or sweater over your shirt.

rhythmandacoustics (6 months ago)
skeptic about this colour matching. White shirt white blue jeans or black jeans works well, but according to you is not. Actually matching dark colours such as navy and black sucks. The real answer is to work out build muscle in order to be in good shape and do cardio to shed water weight. Long legs is only attractive in women, women prefer shorter legs in men. There are studies conducted on this. Now you are really bulshitting your way man.

How about shorter guys wearing shoes with a bit higher heels? Like Steve Madden boots with orthotics inside etc? (Not like cowboy boots or elevators! Lol)
Thomas Donnelly (7 months ago)
High rise pants make you look dorky, and they don't look all that great in women either, it makes their butts look way to long!!! And who wants that?
Benjamin Bradshaw (7 months ago)
usually you wear a Swiss made Hamilton watch, this episode youre wearing the fifth... this is definitely a sponsorship nobody who owns a Hamilton would get a fifth by choice

Is grey and black too high contrast? And is navy and khaki also too high contrast as well?
The Modest Man (8 months ago)
Grey and black is perfect, especially dark grey. Navy and khaki is very high contrast.

HERES A GREAT VIDEO IDEA! make a video where you break all the style rules at once. Then compare to following the rules. Example bad casual Vs good casual

High rise on men doesn’t look very good. I have high rise dress pants and it looks weird and old fashion even tho its new. Rather, low rise looks more modern and better. I have a pretty long torso and I’m a 5’9 ish.
The Modest Man (8 months ago)
Low rise is definitely modern, in that it’s been trendy for the past few years. But that’s changing now. Higher rises are making a huge comeback (they already did for women).

So glad that this channel exists! I'm a young adult and am only about 5' 4". Finding well-fitting clothing is a nightmare.
