Brock’s hair makes me think he has some video tapes to return...
Nzan Ngully (11 days ago)
Is it only me ? Or ? I always see that short guys 5'6 below, have big Heads. The proportion of head to body is always on the bigger side
Farhat Bamadhaj (8 days ago)
It's because they have small narrow shoulders.
Tim Dessaint (10 days ago)
I'm pretty sure we all have similar sized heads, which then indeed might make it look like shorter people have bigger heads.
Yoseph Samuel (12 days ago)
awesome videos from both of you. thank you :)
Tim Dessaint (11 days ago)
Thank you Yoseph! 🙂
Alan Huynh (12 days ago)
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 :(:(
Alan Huynh (10 days ago)
Tim Dessaint just checked it out and really loving the info that your bringing! You got yourself a sub! Dayum I need to get me a pair of those striped vertical pants...
Tim Dessaint (11 days ago)
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 🙂

6’2 gang, anybody?
F T (13 days ago)
i'm 180cm, still watching nice vid
Thats short. Everything under 6’2 is short
Tim Dessaint (13 days ago)
Thank you! Glad you still enjoyed it 🙂
Owlelephant 129 (13 days ago)
Short people don’t have much to worry about. I feel like retailers always carry their sizes. Shoes, pant, shirts, everythang!
Tim Dessaint (13 days ago)
For sure! I'll give you that 🙂
Owlelephant 129 (13 days ago)
Tim Dessaint thanks for the reply! Still I think it’s easier for you to alter clothes that are too big. If something is too small, it’s not like tall people can magically add more material.
Tim Dessaint (13 days ago)
We have it harder than you think haha! It's not uncommon to have even the smallest size be too big for us.
Mr. Guru (14 days ago)
6'4" gang wya... I'm sorry i didn't wish for this I wish I was 6'1" like the rest of yall after a certain point it's too much
Tim Dessaint (14 days ago)
6'1"? I think most of the people watching this video are 5'7" and under 😅
P M (15 days ago)
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
Maryland Guy0326 (4 days ago)
It matters online on dating apps though take it from me I’m 5’7.

Hope it was at least mildly entertaining for you then 😅
hadi257 (26 days ago)
I'm a buff 5 7 dude. Its a struggle for me to get a top that doesn't cover my dick cause of my huge bust measurement. Not a fan of tight clothing anyway
Tim Dessaint (25 days ago)
Try Asket! They have different lengths for each size 🙂 So for example you can go for a short L 🙂
Arvee (26 days ago)
The broll sequence was dope, didn't expect the from a fashion channel 👏

Short guys are great, but they need attitude.
LECKMICH (2 months ago)
since TMM is 5'5 i find it hard to believe that you are 5'7 when comparing you both
Tim Dessaint (2 months ago)
I think it's because he's wearing boots.
Simeone Hambrick (2 months ago)
love style videos for us short brothers. what were the shoes you're wearing at the beginning with the striped trousers?

Tim Dessaint (2 months ago)
Then don't label yourself 🙂
Leo Keys (2 months ago)
yoooo this video needs some good b roll to be more visually pleasing.
Tim Dessaint (2 months ago)
@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!
Leo Keys (2 months ago)
@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 (2 months ago)
Did the 7:30 - 8:13 b-roll sequence not satiate you? (which would be fine, just wondering if you got to that part)
Travis Exodus (2 months ago)
Song name, please? I'm 5'7

The one in the lookbook? Teenage Lullaby - Ooyy

The Ace (2 months ago)
Not a problem my brother Jack ma is 5'3 and so are you he is among the richest in world
nabidc61 (2 months ago)
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.
Tim Dessaint (2 months ago)
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.
Dean Winchester (2 months ago)
He said he wants a few inches taller. Bro, cut that man bun and rock a hairstyle that would give you 2-3 inches of height instantly. LOL
Tim Dessaint (2 months ago)
Haha that would do it! I used to spike my hair up when I was a kid, probably unconsciously because I was insecure about my height. I couldn't care less today though 🙂

Any tips about suits and jackets for shorter men??
Tim Dessaint (2 months ago)
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.
Victor Lindvall (2 months ago)
I'm 5'11 and the insecurity is real
Tim Dessaint (2 months ago)
There will always be people taller than you, and shorter than you. Put yourself in the shoes of someone who's 5'2". Be grateful for what you have!

Anything for heavy set men?
Tim Dessaint (2 months ago)
I'll make a video on that topic in the future! 🙂
Michael Breceda (3 months ago)
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.
Tim Dessaint (3 months ago)
100% agreed!
Polash Adhikari (3 months ago)
Wow, what an awesome video, thank you for the content, the curated editing, and the collaboration, please do more.
