Thanks again for another amazing and informative video. I'm an Indian so most of the companies and sponsors you promote do not exist here. Could you please make a video about the sponsors of your videos cause I trust you and the companies you promote.

I assume men watching this video are interested in attracting females which have gone loose and greedy. Why not just get rid of feminism and limit females rights? In old times women respected all men because women are so incapable that even life with poor man is a lot better than homelessness. Now due to feminist politics if you are not rich, tall and famous women can treat you as trash. BTW it is stupid and outdated thinking that leather is luxurious and makes you attractive. Think about poor animals and dying planet due evil meat industry.

Adriel Rowley (3 months ago)
Thank you Antonio for giving the name for the difference between chest and natural waist: drop. Now can say drop makes it difficult to find off the rack clothing that is a good fit. So I tailored my own suit, pants first and just finished the jacket, can't wait until lining tacked back and can wear the whole suit, know will feel amazing.

Recommendations for narrow shoulders? Any shirt that buttons is massively long for my shoulders.
Samir Jasarat (5 months ago)
Hey Antonio. As a guy who is 5'6", I've definitely got some style principles I swear by. Pants always have no break and are a slimmer fit, and shirts whether it's T-shirts, polo's, or dress shirts, always fit perfectly on my athletic frame. Jean jackets and biker styled leather jackets complement most outfits. To top it off, a solid pair of casual or dress boots put the finishing touches on an outfit that leaves me feeling great.

I've learned to find specific brands of clothing cater to my body type better than others. Finding t shirts that look decent worn on their own are difficult, but usually the more $ the shirt, the better it looks. Gildan t shirts are o.k. but spending a bit more really makes a difference for me. Pants are a hard find since i wear a 29 to 30 inch waste but 30 inches long... most are 32 inches long. Longer pants always make someone look shorter I feel.
Kellen Quigley (5 months ago)
I think as far as pants and shorts go, the length of your legs and/or inseam is a bigger factor. I'm 5'8" but my legs are much shorter than my torso. I have the back of a 5'10" man and the legs of a 5'6" man, so going by full height doesn't usually help.

Nicholas Jaymes (5 months ago)
Hey Antonio, thanks for this video. As for the shorts section, I feel like some guys are 5'3" but have longer legs and a short torso and vise versa. You suggested lengths for shorts according to total height. It may have been better for you to discuss how far the shorts should go according to the knee. I am 5'7" and I like my shorts to go just above the knee. Am I wrong in thinking that different guys have different leg lengths and that would make it different for everyone?
Mark Botello (5 months ago)
Well, one thing as someone who’s 5’8”, I have a very thick chest (47”) with a small waist (32”) and I have a short torso. So, I wearing small shirts is too tight in the shoulders, but hits my hips just right. Sigh.
Vikrant Rai (5 months ago)
Here are some other tips Wear darker shoes and trousers, people's eyes will be drawn up Wear shirts that are slightly lighter/brighter than your trousers but avoid too much contrast Wear collared shirts, wear polos with contrast collors if you can Above all be be confident

JP Davis (5 months ago)
Man, you are doing a public service. Yep, it all starts at shoulder points. If one is buying a suit or sport coat at a better department store, the tailors there do one no favors and just the quickie basics, lol, leave with ill fitting pants (no taper) and jackets with too much air in them. If in LA, go to garmet district and get a real tailor.

Maxwell Smart (5 months ago)
Great video! I’m a tall guy at 6’1”. Not all men share the same proportions. I have a long torso with short legs, the rest: broad shoulders, regular waist and strong calves. I find it difficult to find the right fit, when it comes to clothes that don’t highlight the disproportion(s). I try to layer and stay in the same colour range with tops and bottoms. One of the biggest difficulties is finding a sweater that is long enough and still fits through the shoulders. It would be great, if you could address the issues of proportions and highlighting or camouflaging in choosing a wardrobe. Thanks Antonio!

ammar ali (5 months ago)
A lots of useful information in this video. I'm 5.8 and I have a muscular build, not too much but I do carry little more muscle than the average and it is difficult to find clothes that fits perfect of the rack. I wish the 30" pants fits but I need 29" and that is my biggest issue when shopping for clothes. Thank you Antonio.
Adriel Rowley (3 months ago)
Buy pants that can be taken in and learn to do it yourself, really isn't that hard. My first time and doing by hand took about 20 minutes. Another option is to have a deeper rise so the pants sit on the natural waist and the hips hold the pants up. Hope this helps.

Avoid big patterns/shapes on clothing (Go for smaller patterns). Avoid contrasting your tops and your bottoms (IE) White Shirt dark jeans. Go with a Black shirt with dark jeans or white shirt with light colored denim). If you want contrast, get products with contrasting Details*. For example, dark shirt with light colored buttons and vice versa.

Watch Reviews (5 months ago)
I'm 6'2.5 -6'3 but I wanna be 6'4-6'5 I'm still 17 so maybe I'll get there, but ya always gotta wear boots, have hair with lots of volume, lose weight gain muscle, tighter fitting clothing and tucking in your shirt makes you look a little bit taller, good posture, and avoid any baggy clothing. Even I look shorter wearing baggy sweatshirts and sloppy clothing. The more refined your clothing is the taller you'll look

That's funny Ripped Tosser... the comprehensive average height figures by country on wikipedia suggest otherwise. Looks like I'm Mr. Average at 5'10. Better luck with your next comment. ;)
MrRemixV3 (5 months ago)
The Ripped Reaper shut up man. There is a different average height country to country. Say for example If you're 5'9 in India then you would probably be considered a giant, but if you're 5'9 in UK then considered fairly average. You get what I'm saying? You can't just generalise with these things.

blacktop_hemi (5 months ago)
I'm 5'1" my height has been a big issue for me when it comes to finding clothes. All thru high school i had to shop in the kids department... it messed with my self esteem and still to this day it still messes with me. I'm 26 now and i'm not confident because of my height. Its embarrassing when you have 15 year olds looking older than i am. I look very young, i haven't aged at all i still look like i'm around 17-19. I tried looking older by letting my facial hair grow out and playing around with a beard but that didn't work out. Oh and i'm single.. no girl wants to date a 5 foot tall guy that still looks like a child. Its embarrassing and it affects me every single day of my life.

Thanks for the awesome video Antonio. I'm 5'3 and I really appreciate this video. I wish more style youtubers would do style videos for the shorter man. Antonio I am 52 years old and wear shoe size 5.5 in boys. I find it very hard if not impossible to find stylish shoes size 5.5. Most of the shoes I find in size 5.5 make me look childish. Antonio will you please make a video for men who wear a shoe size 6.0 or smaller explaining what types of shoes are available for men in size 6.0 or smaller and where to buy them?
Robert Allen (5 months ago)
Thank you Antonio. I'm sure there are other men who wear shoe size 5.5 and would appreciate a video on mens shoe size 6.0 or smaller

plumprince (5 months ago)
I’m 5’3 and I have a very small frame, small shoulders and such. NOTHING fits off the rack. Sometimes I have to seriously buy XL clothes from the boys section because nothing from the men’s section. I always looks at Peter Manning’s brand but as a college student it’s quite expensive, and so is tailoring. Ouch.

drlatham22 (5 months ago)
At 5'9, I can't figure out if I'm at the upper end of short or the lower end of average... But, I suppose it is easier for me to find clothes that fit than a man who is 5'2 or 5'3 or 5'4.
drlatham22 (5 months ago)
For the last several years, I have online ordered most of my office and casual clothing from LL Bean and Eddie Bauer and purchased a few things locally in stores like Nordstrom and Orvis and Brooks Brothers. My challenges in purchasing clothing are not finding a neck size, sleeve length, waist or inseam, they are (1) most department store buyers of menswear do not share my fairly conservative/traditional taste in clothing and (2) the selection of clothing colors that go well with my skin and hair colors.
Real Men Real Style (5 months ago)

Adnan Bosnjak (5 months ago)
In many parts of Europe even 5'11 (180 cm) is considered short or at least below average for an adult man these days e.g. the Balkans, Scandinavia, the Netherlands and parts of Germany plus some other places...I see often 12-13 year old kids around 5'11 these days but it's also a socio-economic issue because in poor areas people are usually a lot shorter. Just stick to darker colors and nail the fit and it will be fine.
MrRemixV3 (5 months ago)
Adnan Bosnjak its genetics bro, stop hating on the shorter dudes, they have money just not height. Not the end of the world is it? Plus don't let your height give you a false sense of security, I've seen many short dudes take out giants who thought their height would protect them.
Partha Pratim Gogoi (5 months ago)
I am 5ft 6inch and as you said if a clothing dosen't fit you at your shoulders then definitely avoid it. This is very true I have been doing this every time I buy any top wear, and it's really difficult to get things of the rack that ll fit you. Thanks Antonio for this great video it was a much needed one and the jacket tip was very helpful..

Hello, nice video ! This is a large topic and the video is already 11 minutes long This video focuses on fit, you did not talk about colours, contrast, right choice of clothes but you did on previous videos I think you should make a playlist grouping all your videos about short man style to have a complete guide And maybe do the same for bigger than average men, older men, younger men,...
