7 Crucial Style Tips For Men Who’re 6 Feet (Or Above)

What do tall men like Aditya Roy Kapoor have in common with a Varun Dhawan (for example)—a whole set of sartorial precautions. So clearly, contrary to your assumptions, they’re not god-blessed humans in the literal sense. They too, can’t get away with wrongdoing as right-doings in life. That said, besides being a genetically-blessed species (or maybe even not), most of them know the art of dressing for their body type. If they’re tall, they keep a tailor by their bedside. And if short, don’t subject themselves to odd apparel proportions. But that’s them; they have a fleet of experts working on them. For men like us, saving for a latte everyday, we definitely need help. So, today, for men who’re 6 feet or above in height, here are 7 moves that’ll bring you menswear fortune everyday.

1. Break Your Body Up

As a lot of global, prolific tall dressers prove, there’s a big gain in splitting your top and bottom half of the body. It’s simple: by making someone look at your body as two different halves, you’re creating distinct lines for the viewer’s sight, eventually flattering your height by breaking it up. Masterful trick!

2. If You’re Wearing The Suit, Go Double-Breasted

As it is with God’s rule of creating living beings, tall men are blessed with comparatively longer torsos. Result? They’re unofficially, the luckiest mascots of the double-breasted suit. Besides adding bulk (in the right amount), they add a lot of definition to your body. And, all without making it appear wider and bigger—you don’t want that.

3. If You’re Tall But Thin Too, Layer Up.

For some, things can really go south with oodles of weight. By piling on extra layers of fabric, we mean. But whatever said, guys who’re tall needn’t worry here at all. The idea is simple: layering brings along a lot of dimension, depth and focal points to your body, which distracts your viewer away from your height. You’re tall, we geddit, no one needs to rub that in the face.

4. Footwear Experiments

Creating a point of interest with your choice in footwear is a great way of bringing someone’s eyes to your feet. But that’s a given. How does it help? Bro, c’mon: it’ll help in ensuring you don’t look abnormally tall, by keeping the attention on your body very grounded. Instead of a view from top to bottom, the viewer will look at your body from bottom to top—which is great. And on a side note, don’t go too clown-y with your shoes anyway.

5. Doesn’t Fit You Right? Grab A Tailor

Unless your trial room drill is a little too strong or you lean towards bespoke tailoring daily, you need a tailor on speed dial. But this doesn’t just apply to men who’re tall. Everyone, literally every man on earth, needs to tailor their apparel to fit them right. There’s nothing worse than clothes ruining your personality for you. Pay a few bucks, and get things altered!

6. Shoulder Pads, Suspenders, Skinny Ties—No No

If you’re bulky and tall, you won’t think of shoulder padding anyway. But if you’re tall and thin, you might end up adding big pads to your jackets/suits. But don’t—you don’t want get labelled as a try-hard bulker. If nothing, do it in minimal amounts. Plus, since accessories like suspenders add length to your body, keep them at least a mile away. The same goes for skinny ties.

7. Stripes Can Be Tricky. However, Just Look Into The Mirror For Decisions

One of the safest prints a man can try on himself, are checks or stripes. Talking of the latter, first off, tall guys should stay away from vertical stripes for sure (you know the reason). But we’re not saying horizontal stripes are any good either. That said, that’s something you can only ascertain in front of the mirror. So, simple: check yourself out, before you completely wreck yourself.
