I’m 5’8” in shoes but am mistaken a lot for 5’5”-6”. I have a pretty wide set of shoulders and am of muscular build. One of the biggest challenges is getting shirts that fit my shoulders but aren’t too long for me. Siiiigh guess I’ll need to spend money on tailoring :(:(
Your tailor is your best friend especially when you're pretty buff! Check out my "Style Tips For Athletic Men" video I made with my friend Nathan if you haven't watched it yet, it's a good one for people with a muscular physique 🙂
Starts @ 4:00. Go low contrast; avoid belts that cut you in half colourwise; trim the fat in your look, slim silhouette; small-scale patterns (but not too small);I would add: blow dry your hair up and back for height.
my brother is 5'2 and his lady game was fcking amazing, girls wanted to be near him because he was cute, was a smooth talker and took care of himself. Size doesn't matter, confidence does, don't let the social standards take it from you!
PD: Tim tbh, this is a rlly good video, specially for the people who struggle with this every day, I love ur channel!
*I'm 5'7 fyi
I'm 163 cm and asian, but i never really consider myself ad being short or at least feel insecure about my height, because if i compare myself to people here, i'm like the average, like most people here are 5'3 to 6
@Leo Keys I think you're absolutely right. I could've done a better job adding in some b-rolls during the conversation parts. I'll definitely keep this in mind for my next collab 🙂 Thanks for the feedback man!
@Tim Dessaint The segment where you guys were having a conversation in the living room couch would have been (imo) a nice place some b roll examples of what you guys were talking about. I mean I could imagine what you guys were talking about, and brock was a living example of what he preached, but I felt like was just waiting for some examples to pop up during the conversation.
The 7:30 clips was really nice, but I was expecting some during the convo since the production value is good.
@Tim Dessaint I can't thank you enough because u got 60k subscribers and get thousands of comments... But still managed to reply... Thank you so much Tim🥰🥰🥰
All the best for one million within this year i wish... Thank you 🥰🥰🥰
lol I'm 5'3 with shoes on. Literally, no guy is this height. I tend to just wear really slim fitted clothes to look taller and sharper. I also hate standing next to people because it makes me feel inferior. The only clothes that fit me are the XXS River Island fit.
I know it's easier said than done but focus on the things you can actually control. Dwelling about your height is just wasted energy and won't change anything. Find other things in your life that you can be grateful for that others may not have the chance to have.
I usually get my suits made-to-measure, or off-the-rack with the necessary alterations done in-store. For jackets find a brand that works for your size, some brands size smaller than others. If the sleeves are too long you can get them shortened at a tailor.
As a 5’5 man myself, I’ve found that fixing your posture and hitting the gym makes you feel and look taller which infinitely boost confidence. If you’re short, don’t make it worse by slouching when you stand and walk.
