Look More Muscular INSTANTLY 7 Style Tips
To Make Yourself Look Bigger [0:00:00]
I get it. You don’t have the perfect body type. Maybe you’re a bit thin, maybe you’re
a bit heavy and you want to look more muscular. Well, as the trolls here on YouTube are going
to tell you, the best route to that is what you already know; eat right, lift weights
and that is going to pack on the mass. However, how can you improve your image right
now? Well, did you know that the right clothing
choices can make you look bigger and stronger? In today’s video, I’m going to share with
you seven tips on how to look more muscular using the right clothing. [Music]
Tip number one. Nail the fit. I’ve said it before, gents, fit is king
when it comes to clothing. If you’re thin, you don’t want to wear
skin-tight clothing. It’s only going to make you look thinner. On the flipside, you don’t want to wear
clothing that’s too baggy. You’re going to end up looking like a kid
wearing his older brother’s clothing. You want your clothing to drape cleanly on
the body. Take your clothing to a tailor to get it adjusted
even if it’s casual clothing like button-down shirts or jeans. Tip number two. Wear long sleeves. To look more muscular, you want to gravitate
towards long sleeve shirts. Wearing short sleeve shirts can actually over
emphasize how thin or flabby your arms actually are especially when the color of the shirt
contrasts sharply against the color of your skin. And because long sleeve shirts cut down on
the color contrast, this helps to create the illusion of more muscular arms. But, what if it’s hot outside? In that case, just roll up the shirt sleeves. Now, don’t roll up past the elbow, go with
two rolls. That’s going to take you to about the mid
of the forearm and overall this look is going to make your arms look more muscular. It’s a much stronger look than that same
man trying to pull off a short sleeve shirt. All right, gents, before we go to our next
point, I want to warn you there may be a mistake you’re making right now which is going to
sabotage your efforts to dress more muscular. That one mistake is wearing loud oversized
accessories. I get it. You want to receive compliments, you want
to standout from the crowd, but loud oversized accessories work against you. So, what do I suggest? Go with something simple, timeless, elegant. Maybe something unique though, something that’s
going to melt together different materials that is a conversation starter. This watch right here, notice proportionally
it works with my wrist. Also, it has wood and it melts steel together,
a very unique watch made by Original Grain, the paid sponsor of today’s video. Guys, for two years I’ve been working with
this company because you all love them. You’ve written me the letters the testimonials. I wear their watches and I like them because
they are unique, there’s just something cool about the mixing of wood and metal. You want to go check out the Barrel Collection. Beautiful! Look at those watches. The Classic Collection, the Minimalist Collection. That’s the watch that I’m wearing right
now in this video. The Championship Collection, pretty cool right
here. The Brewmaster Collection, The Whiskey Collection,
and one of my favorites the Alterra Chrono Collection. Gents, Original Grain has free shipping. I’m linking to them down in the description
of today’s video. There’s a special discount code, RMRS. You’re going to get a great deal. Use it or lose it. Again, great company, proud to support. Tip number three. Build up the shoulders and chest. Now, there are quite a few ways to do this
with your clothing. The first is to wear a casual button-down
that has pockets on the chest or epaulettes on the shoulders. The extra fabric here, it’s going to add
visible bulk to your frame. These types of shirts though are casual, so
what are your other options? Suit jackets, blazer jackets, sports jackets. All of these have padding that’s going to
bulk up your upper body. A well-tailored jacket will add mass to your
shoulders and chest while slimming up your torso creating a great looking masculine silhouette. Even casual jackets like a leather or denim
jacket will help your upper body look stronger by boosting your chest and shoulders. Tip number four to dress more muscular. Layer your clothing. This technique is highly effective because
it can bulk up and adds depth to the middle and upper torso area. So, start your layering by wearing a well-fitted
undershirt. Now, add your second layer perhaps a long
sleeve t-shirt like a Henley, a button-down, or a dress shirt. For the third layer weather permitting, you
can add a sleek lightweight sweater or a thicker one that can add bulk. A thick sweater with a cable knit pattern
is a perfect choice to add size to your frame. But, if you wanted to go with something more
lightweight, you can actually work this in with the sports jackets that we just talked
about. Make sure that you’ve nailed the fit with
every item. One odd fitting item that’s too large can
throw the whole thing off. An important note for the large man, yes,
you can use layering to look more muscular, but what’s key for you is to use lighter
weight thin fabrics. Tip number five to dress more muscular. Use heavier weight fabrics and weaves. Materials like tweed, flannel, corduroy, and
heavy denim are going to be thicker and have a textured look. This textured look increases their perceived
size and weight, while not increasing the size of the silhouette. The end product is a sleek, but heavier look
one that just feels deeper and more masculine. [0:05:02]
Tip number six to dress more muscular. The use of lines. Now, heavy men need to be careful of this,
but understand that you can use horizontal stripes and lines to boost your perceived
size. This works really well for thin men. Ideally, you want this near the chest and
the shoulders to help build up their overall appearance. Certain sweater styles with horizontal stripes
on the upper torso can really help with this look. Check patterns are also great for adding a
bit of bulk to an outfit especially in a casual shirt or a casual jacket. Tip number seven to look more muscular. Wear a collared shirt. Collars are an easy way to increase the perceived
size of your neck or to hide your double chin. Well, gents, there’s a range of different
menswear items out there that have collars. We’re talking polo shirts, dress shirts,
collared sweaters, turtle necks, and the list goes on. All right, gents, now it’s your turn. I want to hear from you down in the comments. What do you think of this video? What did you learn? What did I miss? What would you have added to this video to
make it better? Let me know down in the comments. I love interacting with you guys. And don’t forget go check out Original Grain,
an awesome company that I’ve worked with for two years because you all love their watches. I’m linking to them down in the description,
an awesome discount code down there, so make sure to use it or lose it. And, guys, my favorite collection it’s got
to be the Minimalist Collection. I like the other ones, this Alterra Chrono
is very nice, but for me it’s something that I can dress up dress down with that Minimalist
Collection. I would love to hear from you guys down in
the comments what is your favorite collection what specific watches from Original Grain
do you love. Again, go check them out, great company, proud
to support them. And, that’s it, guys. Take care. See you in the next video. [0:06:44] End of Audio

  2. Do you guys have trouble locating tailors? When I lived in Austin, there were a few tailors and or shops that do alterations near where I lived but now I live in Houston and I can't find any tailors. They pretty much disappeared. And clothing alteration shops are far in between.

  3. Hi Antonio,
    In the past, I've read and I've been told that if I am to roll up sleeves, I should roll them above the elbows.
    Here you are telling us to roll it below. I trust your style thus now I'm confused. What is your take on this?

  4. I thought all I needed to do was bathe in AXE deodorant each day!
    Seriously though, I find that dark colors make me look skinnier, as does wearing long hair. Short hair (especially military style buzz cuts) make you look tough.

  5. i feel very good about my size with a collered casual shirt but wearing polo shirt makes me look very thin. give some tips about polo shirts as well

  6. I feel like i alreasy know everything all these style channels talk about and have been doing them for years well most things

  7. Loving my 42mm Original Grain Brewmaster. Fits my wrist size (7.25 inches) perfectly, always gets compliments, matches my wardrobe as well as my lifestyle, yet remains understated and slides under a shirt sleeve easily!

  8. the video felt a little more tailored towards thin and normal sized men. Maybe you could include some extra tips aimed towards short legged fat guys 🙂

  9. I've got a bit of a question, I'm 6'5 right now I'm 220 lbs muscle mass, but I'm getting ready to drop down to 206lbs lean muscle in time for summer, my shoe size is a 16.5 wide. As most of my clothing doesn't fit in the arms I usually wear tops rolled back to my forearms. I've always worn easter colors (pink, pastel purple, and green, perrywinkle blue, canary yellow, etc) because when I was old enough to start buying my own clothing it just felt right, but I've never had any real fashion guru give me tips. I'm a full-time University student so my clothing is 70% American Eagle and 30% items from Value Villiage. Soon I'm going to be going for job interviews where I hope to go from the blue-collar professions people told me I'm destined for to a white-collar, or business casual desk job. What should I be wearing, what should I buy to make this leap.

  10. I can't believe these guys named their company "original grain" xD Sounds so generic, like a name of a $5 watch you'd buy from alliexpress, they might as well have called their company "wooden watches".

  11. New subscriber… I've been dressing up daily for a while now, but WOW. Your content is unbelievably useful. All of your sponsors, especially Original Grain, KK&Jay and Anson Belt & Buckle, are all amazing. Speaking of, my unrivalled favourite of the watches is the Classic 43mm Rosewood Black. The contrast between the red face and silver hands, the dome face. I hope you keep it up!

  12. this video is a masterpiece… the way you used a model to illustrate your point and how to wear the clothes was fabulous keep it up

  13. Excellent point on the accessory front. I know friends who love the wrist presence of a big Panerai or Breitling, but just can't pull it off. A datejust would be perfect, but some men find it too effeminate. In the end, they wind up looking like a kid dressed in his dad's clothes, just on an accessory front. Rings (college and high school rings in particular) and chains/necklaces can also prove to be a problem for some men. Great tips as always!

  14. Man… awesome video, great topic! The quality of your videos keeps getting better and better! Thank You for all you do, Antonio! Appreciate it!

  15. Ok….tell me this. I am TRYING to get more of a upper build, I do have a 'gut'….I'm working on it, to get rid of it.
    BUT till then…I MUST wear XXL tee shirts. I live in them,and shorts. I HATE HATE HATE tight clothes. Always have. But now, to not feel like I am being strangled all day, I wear a XXL colored tees, to work in, and frankly to go out in, and fish in, I wear decorated ones. I am in south Fla. it is HOT. My work is HOT, and the look I get is like I am wearing a night shirt all the time.
    So..until i get the bigger shoulders and less gut, what do i do, what do i wear?

    I HAVE to wear tees, and shorts, even jeans are to much to wear ,but i dont have much problem in the pants dept.
    Then when I go out, and that is RARE,…I want to be comfortable, so it is XXL decorated tees, BUT the shoulders sag, but to 'cover my gut' I have to wear the XXL. I go down to a XL, and the shoulders are great, but my gut looks like I am 8 months along!!! And its to tight!!!

    So…whats the solution to this problem.? It is going to take time to get trim up the gut, and get the shoulders I USE to have in my 20's. I am 54 now. So…whats the solution to this?

  16. I see that you're ramping up the production by shooting custom footage with a model! A nice touch indeed but putting a thin guy and an overweight guy instead of a well-built guy would have demonstrated the points in a more realistic fashion. 🙂

  17. Not clothing, but good posture is key to holding your body correctly and presenting in a way that positively emphasizes the body

  18. Mr. Antonio really this video is the video that i was about to ask you, but you did it man, keep going forward and also you always inspire me thanks man

  19. One thing I would add is skip long shirts. You're wearing a shirt, not a skirt.
    Plus the extra length makes a guy look thinner and stretched out more than making them look muscular.

  20. I like it only thing is have changed is more info for bigger men maybe some demonstration on a big guy as most of the population is bit bigger now

  21. Thank you for the great tips on looking more muscular. For a skinny guy 5’10/150lb these are much appreciated. As far as the original grain watches go the only series I would consider would be the minimalist because of the 40mm size.

  22. Good tips, wish there was also a larger man as a model, because the points you were making on smaller men were emphasized by the model.

  23. Style tips: what to wear to carry concealed

    Pattern shirt – works on similar principal as camouflage by breaking outlines. I carried a full sized glock17.
    Extra tip on pattern shirts – have the most bottom button unbuttoned for easier access to the weapon.
    Get fit – v shape helps better with concealment than being overweight. Combine that with this video to make you look even bigger, and you send a message, "don't mess with me".
    Proper holster – depends on the weather and occasion. A good IWB or IWB/OWB.
    Good belt
    Pants – if you're going to carry IWB, waist size should a bit bigger

  24. why is it considered incorrect to button the bottom button on a suit jacket? in my opinion it actually makes a guy look fatter if he leaves it undone.

  25. Great video, Antonio!
    I'd especially emphasize recommending rolling those long shirt sleeves up strategically (including long sleeved T-shirts and sweaters) because they can add bulk toward the upper forearms and biceps, helping to achieve that V-shape through the arms!

  26. With nailing the fit of clothing I've found that with short sleeved shirts a high and tight sleeve is key to making a skinnier arm look bigger. If it's flapping I ain't happy

  27. pretty good tips. concerning lines, I prefer vertical ones because I think horizontal lines and stripes make me look a bit fatter. salutes from brazil!

  28. Great video Antonio. Just a question, how do you see vests? As a big dude, do they serve a similar function as a sweater in terms of layering?

  29. Thank you so much Antonio, Great video! however, I do workout and I watch what I eat and it works for me. Sorry I was buy so I didn't comment earlier.

  30. when go for suit trailer, does name brand or more expensiver definitely better? or u think average price also can look sharp as long as wear with confident!

  31. Hey Antonio! I'm all for the growth of your awesome channel because it's helped me a TON not only in my style aspect but also in life overall and so I would like to give you some insights with regards to the way this video because I can tell that this is definitely a different style (which I'm all in for, btw). However, the upbeat music doesn't really fit in with the serious vibe of the classic RMRS intro or maybe it's just me haha. Anyways, cheers Antonio and here's to another milliom subs this year!

  32. I understand all your points, Antonio, but I think it's also important to realize these tips work either in reverse or in other applications to make you look thinner. Don't be afraid to experiment to find the perceived build that you want to go for. RMRS is a great tool for finding it, but remember that the advertised look is only one of many, and you can adjust the tips to adjust your style.

  33. Is it me or did some of his suggestions seem to be the complete opposite based on his model? For example, wearing a long sleeve shirt vs short sleeve. The model clearly looked more muscular in the former

  34. Great video, Antonio!
    I would like your videos even more, if you explain how and why this optical ilusions work, maybe adding some analogies. When we understand the principle (the "why"), we don't have to memorize what to use when. Some examples:
    – how colors work regarding size: would I recognize a white object as beeing bigger then a black one? If yes, then this should apply to clothing, so if I want to emphasize the size of the upper body, then I use shirts with a lighter color.
    – effect of patterns: the eye tend to follow lines, thus vertical lines give you the impression, that someone is taller).
    Those are suggestions, not really a critic. Thank you for your great work! It helped me a lot.

  35. I always try to wear t-shirts that have sleeves that end at the middle of my bicep. It makes all the difference. Too loose and it's the scrawny look, too tight and it's just awkward feeling. Right in the middle.
