Us men of short stature are all 6’ 4” deep inside; unfortunately, our real stature isn’t visible to others at first glance. It would be wonderful though if people mistook us to be a few inches taller than we really are. Thankfully a little bit of heightening is possible wearing the right attire. We want to reveal a few secrets to men of smaller stature to aid them in creating the illusion of being taller.
1. Wear Footwear That Matches Your Trousers Color
This may seem nonsensical, but it’s effective in creating the illusion of greater height. When there is little contrast between the color of one’s trousers and our footwear, it creates a visual effect that makes the legs seem longer than they actually are. So when you wear black trousers, try pairing them with a pair of black or dark colored shoes.
Remember when your legs seem longer, it makes you appear taller, so don’t wear high top shoes that hide your ankle, instead wear shoes that are low top because they show more of your ankle making you look taller.
Also, round-headed or square headed shoes make the legs seem shorter whereas shoes that have a pointed front make your legs seem longer. So opt to wear shoes that have a pointed front or head if you want to appear taller.
2. Accessorize Smartly To Appear Taller
Every good personality development program will tell you that the color of your socks should closely match the color of your trousers. One of the best reasons to follow this advice is that if your socks match closely with your pair of men trousers it helps make you look taller.
A technique behind looking taller has to do with creating an appearance that is similar from top to bottom. This means that you should
Avoid wearing bright or patterned socks because they add attention to one particular region of your body and make you seem “split” into two halves.
Try to draw people’s attention towards your face by wearing attractive headgear such as caps.
If like many Indian men you love wearing a belt, you can wear one to your advantage. Try to wear a men’s belt that is thin because, as mentioned earlier, you don’t want to seem split in two which tends to happen when one wears wide belts.
If possible at times go without even wearing a belt or opt to wear suspenders instead.
3. How Trousers Can Help Look Taller
When you’re reaching for the stars, never wear low rise trousers. The simple reason for this is that when you tuck a shirt into a low rise trouser, your upper body looks longer and your legs appear shorter, making your overall appearance shorter. Try to wear only mid to high rise trousers and pants.
Also please make sure your trousers don’t bunch up together at your feet, this makes your feet look shorter. Only a minimal volume of your pants fabric should cover your shoe.
4. How to Wear Shirts to Appear Taller
Many men reading this should know that vertical stripes on your shirt give the appearance of additional height while horizontal stripes make one look shorter.
Also what you should know is that by correctly pairing your formal shirt with a blazer or suit you can make yourself seem taller. For instance, if you show ¼’ of the sleeve of your shirt under men’s coat & blazer it will make your arms (and as a result you) appear taller. If on the other hand, you were to show ½’ or ¾’ of your shirts sleeve your arms would appear shorter, as would you.
Another way to appear taller is by wearing a shirt that hugs the chest; this makes your torso appear thinner and you look taller.
5. Finally, a No Brainer
At all cost, avoid wearing baggy clothes if you want to create the appearance of extra height. Baggy clothes make your feet look short and as a result, you appear shorter than you actually are.
This concludes today’s fashion update fashion aficionados, stay tuned for our next article where we reveal more secrets to make you look more fab than you already do.

A man’s hair is one of his most attractive and most prized attributes. Though only those who have some money can dress well in a premium men’s formal suit, every young man can and does usually have well cared for hair. In an earlier blog, we had revealed the various hair care products and how best to use each. In this article, we want to discuss the various possible hairstyles for men and what each reveals about a person.
Long Loose Hair
It’s no coincidence that long loose hairstyle is favored by rock stars, artists, and men who are generally more creative than most. This style of hair signals to the world that a person is a free spirit, rebellious, and not easily controlled. If you work in an office this hairstyle is a definite no-no but if you aspire to work in a creative field then this hairstyle may be just right for you.
Hair Parted From The Side
This hairstyle has remained a part of the mainstream of hairstyles for nearly eighty years. If you want to create a professional aura for yourself, then this hairstyle may be just right for you. It’s appropriate to have this hairstyle in any professional office thanks to its clean-cut look that signals to others “I want to be taken seriously”. Yet hair parted from the side hairstyle is not stuffy and is actually very hip and stylish. Of course, it is entirely up to you which side you want to part your hair from.
A Buzz Cut
If you’re losing the hair on your head, there might be no better way to hide your hair loss than a buzz cut. Having a buzz cut means having your hair cut very close to your scalp (the top of your head). This hairstyle may not be well suited to those individuals who have large ears or an uneven skull because a buzz cut might actually attract peoples attention to such features. If you have none of the constraints described above, then a buzz cut might be right for you since it signals to the world that you are a no-nonsense individual who is also easy and uncluttered. Sportsmen love the buzz cut.
The Fade Cut
Having a fade cut means that you have small hair on the side and back of your head that gradually merge or fade into the longer hair on top of your head. This hairstyle signals that you like to be in the spotlight and that you are also dependable and like to look neat and clean too. A Fade cut looks great on the majority of men making them look even better than they already do.
Do you have a size 34 waist? Are you only sure of this because a size 34 pair of pants fits comfortably around your tummy? We’re not looking for trouble but we know that thanks to “Vanity Sizing” there are good reasons to doubt the intentions of your favourite brand when it labels the size of its clothing. We’re sure you’ve experienced first hand that waist sizes differ from one brand to the next. Hence a garment with a size 34 waist made by one apparel maker may be too small for you while a size 34 of another label will fit you with ease. This is called “vanity sizing” within the fashion industry and is done deliberately by numerous brands to attract buyers to purchase only their apparel.
Stroking The Male Ego Using His Waist
Many if not most brands intentionally show pants with a larger waist size as being 2 or more inches smaller. This trick appeals to men’s “vanity” who show a preference for buying trousers from labels that sell pants of a larger than actually stated waist size. Men who think that the top brands are immune to such manipulation have a thing or two to learn. The best-known brands in the world are the same ones that most heavily employ “vanity sizing” in their garments. Men’s brands that are traditionally considered stalwarts of male masculinity are often the same ones that falsely label oversized garments as smaller ones and sell them to insecure men, fooling consumers into a false sense of comfort.
The Scale of The Deception
Some men reading these words may refuse to believe that vanity sizing actually exists or that it is done deliberately by the top clothing manufacturers in the world. But men make no mistake, “vanity sizing” exists and is done deliberately by apparel manufacturers. The difference in the waist sizes among different manufacturers is not a coincidence, it has been created on purpose. Even the most valued apparel brands in the world partake in this deception. To get an idea of the difference between the sartorial fiction created and the facts, consider that one leading apparel label sells 39.5-inch pants as 36-inch ones. Another even more premium brand markets pants with a 41-inch waist as 36-inch pants.
Men Fall For It
Anyone who still thinks only women are vain has a lot to learn. Men are equally as vain as the fairer sex is. Hence the success of vanity sizing which leads men to feel good about themselves without having to make any real physical effort to do so. Most insecure men probably make themselves believe that the larger sized pant shown as having a smaller waist size that fits them well is correct while a tight fitting pant that has the accurate waist measurement is wrong. One can’t hold it against men, as men are as conscious of their physical measurements as are women are about their age. But lying to themselves about the same may have unfavourable consequences.
Living in La La Land
When you’re a man, you measure your waist by the circumference of your pants, literally. Men are highly unlikely to pull out a measuring tape to check the size of their waist because they believe they know the size of they’re waist through the waist size displayed on the pants they wear. But what if many of them have been wrong for the past few years and their waist size, for instance, is not a relatively healthy 34 inches but a larger and unhealthy 36 or even 38 inches? Then rather than being able to enjoy a lavish gourmet filled lifestyle, they ought to go easy and cut down on the portions they consume. In such instances men’s trousers may be misleading them and, unbelievable as it seems, harming their health.
A Simple Solution
Vanity sizing is highly unlikely to go away anytime soon. Pants sold through vanity sizing are too comfortable to too many and make men feel good about themselves. The simplest way for men to not be fooled by the deception of vanity sizing is by pulling out a measuring tape and measuring the size of their waist. Then regardless of whether they wear falsely labelled 34-inch waist size trousers when the actual size of their waist is 36 inches, they won’t be partaking in an unnecessary deception and perhaps may even, if they’ve grown physically complacent, be motivated to lead a healthier lifestyle.
Ola trendsetters! To begin with, we want to state what’s obvious, that most of us have one, two, or even more pairs of men sneakers in our closet. They are great to play sports in or suitable to wear as dress shoes when they’re worn right. There are nearly unlimited ways to match your sneakers with the rest of your attire or to match your attire with your sneakers (when you’re a true sneaker-head that is). Most of us pay great consideration to the attire we want to wear and consider sneakers less important. However, the right sneakers when paired with the right outfit can make our persona and make us look significantly better than we would have without the right athletic footwear.
But First, Sneakers and How They Came to Be
Most shoes for men before the introduction of the sneaker had wooden soles. Sneakers, with their rubber soles, were named so because of the “ability” they bestowed on the person wearing them to “sneak” around without making a sound. Hence being able to walk stealthily led to this variety of shoe being called “Sneakers”.
Although today we take for granted that the shoe we put on our right foot is crafted so as to best fit our right foot and not the left, and of course vice versa. It may surprise you to learn that in the late 1800’s in western countries the underclass wore rubber-soled shoes called plimsolls that did not differentiate one foot from the other. Because these shoes did not differentiate wearers left or right foot, one piece could be worn on either foot. Obviously, they were not crafted with the precision that we take for granted today, a precision that differentiates the piece to be worn on the right foot from the one to be worn on the left foot and once again, vice versa.
Naturally, the absence of this precision did not make for a comfortable shoe and subsequently led to the introduction of new type of shoe known as Keds that was created by the U.S. Rubber Company. Keds differentiated between wearers right and left foot and are today acknowledged as the very first mass-produced shoe worthy of being called a sneaker. From here on we may say that there was no looking back and sneakers gradually evolved and grow into what we know today to be tennis shoes, cross trainers, and basketball shoes, and also low top sneakers that look great when one’s strutting down a city street wearing skinny charcoal jeans.
Pairing the Black Sneaker
Read on to better understand how to attractively pair your black sneakers with the other high-quality apparel in your closet.
No doubt you know that black sneakers are a most versatile fashion essential that looks great with almost anything. Try and pair yours with a pair of “nude chinos” i.e. chinos that are the same color as human skin and wear on your torso a black colored crew neck sweater. A pair of black low top sneakers with this combination of chinos and sweater will create a bold and stylish look at the close of this winter. The contrast between the black sneaker and your black sweater and nude chinos will demand that a white collared shirt is worn over your torso, underneath the sweater, creating the right mix stylish of colors, shades, and shapes.
Sadly winter is coming to an end, and seemingly with not a bang but a whimper. The temperature never fell as low or stayed as low as many of us would have liked and some of us never got the chance to wear some of the most attractive attires we had hoped to wear this winter. Lucky for you we’re here to help. Because winter may be coming to a close, but it leaves many fashion opportunities with respect to your pair of black sneakers wide open. To get the most out of your black colour sneakers this winter, pair them with a navy blue colored jacket and blue jeans and a black tee. A brown belt around your waist and the black sneakers on your feet will create the perfect combination of colors to match what you’re wearing on your torso and on your legs.
How To Look Great in a White Sneaker
When we think of the name sneakers or sports and athletic shoes the first thing that comes to our mind is a pair of white colored footwear. Naturally, when was the last time you saw the Indian National Cricket Team, even when wearing their blue jersey’s, pair them with anything but white sneakers? Even you, when growing up, probably never stepped onto the sports field for an important match without first putting on sneakers that were, you guessed it, white. So no one will blame you if sneakers to you mean a pair of white colour athletic shoes.
Thankfully, white sneakers are not just meant to be worn when there are a ball and sports field involved. They are increasingly being accepted as ideal office wear on casual work days and at an acceptable time of day are visible on the feet of wealthy patrons at swanky clubs and restaurants as well.
Its winter time, enough said, yes, we already know what season it is. But it’s important to keep in mind before dressing because winter means that you likely venture out of your house dressed in heavier than usual clothing. Such clothing may also be devoid of the bright colors you often wear during spring and summer. A pair of bright white sneakers will add color to your outfit at this time in January. Pair your white low top sneakers with a slim fitting chino and a warm jacket. Finish off this classic look with a simple white tee. Its cool enough to not feel too hot in this outfit and its warm enough to not feel too cold in it either. As the early morning sun travels higher into the sky, the temperature may (depending on where you are) become warm enough to remove the jacket and emerge dressed in a stylish semi-retro look that is just “made” by your clean white sneakers.
To attain a slightly edgier look with your white sneakers pair them with tight-fitting blue denim jeans and a full-sleeved shirt and once again, a white tee underneath. A light colored sweater on top will complete a preppy yet casual look that can carry you from the office to a semi-formal gathering with friends at a club in the evening. In most parts of India, barring those places with the most extreme climate, the temperature is warm enough to look great in this type of apparel, and because it’s a mild January winter, it means we can look great dressed in less bulky winter wear.
In closing young hipsters and trendsetters, we want to emphasize that like time, fashion also doesn’t stand still for anyone. Rather fashion is an exhilarating journey with no final destination and there’s no one right look that’s appropriate for everyone on their fashion odyssey. On our travels, we expect to keep you looking your best whatever may come across your path while we journey together. So until next time, ciao.
