  • Which Famous Men Could Do With A Boost?

    Which Famous Men Could Do With A Boost?

    The typical Hollywood A-lister is 6ft and over with a dazzling white smile and a finely honed body that has come at the cost of daily workouts. But what about those unconventional Hollywood heartthrobs who have found success and fame while looking up to many of their peers? We take a look at some of the most famous men on the planet who have made a success of themselves with or without a few extra inches…

    Tom Cruise

    Without a doubt the most famous A-lister who has never graced six foot, Tom Cruise is a major Hollywood star and has featured in some of the most successful films of the generation. He has dated (and married) some of the most beautiful women in the world, and has never let his height (or lack thereof) stand in the way of a movie role, a marriage or some other form of ambassadorial work. He has been seen looking shorter than Katie Holmes one minute and taller the next, we suspect he was wearing height increasing shoes although this remains to be confirmed!

    Daniel Radcliffe
    When first cast as the boy wizard Harry Potter, many people predicted Daniel Radcliffe would go on to feature in Hollywood hits and become the quintessential ‘leading man’. But at 5ft 5, his path has gone a very different way, and no one could deny that his talent has led him down a fruitful and exhilarating path. Jumping from horror films to the Broadway musical with a few naked roles in between, Daniel Radcliffe is an example of how height needn’t be a barrier to any kind of success. He is now a leading man in his own right, and will most likely go on to have a much more sustained career than any of the six-foot flavour-of-the-month eye-candy that grace many Hollywood films.

    Robert Downey Jnr

    With roles as superheroes and famous detectives under his belt in recent years, you may be forgiven for thinking that Robert Downey Jnr was a quintessential Hollywood hunk. But at 5ft 7inches tall, the man behind Sherlock Holmes and the recent Iron Man series is much shorter than many would at first believe. Despite this, his sheer presence on-screen and some of the gargantuan performances he has put in during many of his hit movies make him seem like a veritable giant of the silver screen, and despite being a way off 6ft, the supposed ideal height for a man, he has made a huge success of himself thanks to his huge talent.

    Of course, most Hollywood taste makers have stylists and camera trickery up their sleeve which can give them towering proportions on the big screen. In real life, more than a few have been rumoured to wear elevator shoes to give a healthy dose of self confidence…

    Winter Fashion Essentials For Every Man’s Wardrobe

    Being a trend setter and taste maker is in no way reserved just for the girls. If you pride yourself on your sharp sense of style, winter is the season for you but before you pack your wardrobe with bundles of hot off the catwalk looks, try our rundown of white hot essentials. Perfect for city slickers and country mansions, no man’s wardrobe should be without these winter essentials this year…

    1. 1.   A Sharp Suit

    Classic tailoring never really goes out of style but this winter a sharp suit is your go-to, especially for the festive soirees sure to dot your Christmas getaway. A suit is a wardrobe classic so it’s worth paying as much as you can afford to pick up an investment piece that will serve you well year after year. Textures are also big news this season so look for interesting touches such as the use of cashmere and leather. Be careful not to go too OTT on the detail as you won’t something classic that you can get wear out of and still look totally on trend in five year’s time, rather than something that’s going to look dated in a few months. Check out some of our formal and stylish elevator shoes for men which go perfectly with a sharp tailored suit.

    1. 2.   Tartan

    If you hit up Instagram you’ll have seen tartan packed all over your feed – from tees to hats, trousers to jackets, the Scottish staple is where its at style wise this season. The girls are going made for a classic red and black combo so it’s a safe bet if you want to look totally on trend and still impress the ladies in your life with your on-the-nose fashion savvy. If you’re a bit unsure, try an accent piece like a scarf –another winter staple- which can bring a casual tee and jeans combo right up to date.

    1. 3.   A Trilby

    Another steal from the girls who’re embracing hats and the whole masculine-feminine vibe for AW13, hats have been big news for the last couple of seasons are look set to be around for a while yet. Dapper, cool or footballer-off duty, there’s a trilby to suit your style. Classic black is a good investment but try a quirkier maroon or cream if you really want to stand out and make a statement.

    1. 4.   A Winter Knit

    There’s nothing cool about goose bumps and purple skin and if it’s good enough for the world’s highest paid male model, it’s good enough for us. A winter knit will probably be your most hardworking wardrobe buy this year. Look for chunky wool and textural detail such as cable knit as well as interesting design features like a shawl neckline in any colour that tickles your fancy. If you’re stuck finding something that doesn’t look like it was knitted by your granny circa Christmas 1990, H&M’s latest menswear campaign with super Sean O’Pry is all about the knitted jumper so head to the high street and rifle through their selection.

  • Is there a correlation between height and IQ?

    It is well-known both anecdotally and statistically that taller people generally have it better in life. They have higher levels of self-esteem, they get paid more and they are more likely to have successful relationships. But incredibly, there is also evidence to suggest that taller people also have an intelligence advantage. Continue reading
