Jonah Hill, 5’7″, is an Academy Award nominated actor/writer/comedian who has been dominating Hollywood since 2007. He exploded onto the scene in the hit comedy Superbad before landing a string of funny-guy roles. Then he surprised everyone (maybe just me?) with his dramatic performance in Brad Pitt’s Moneyball.
Like any celebrity, Hill is photographed relentlessly, especially at awards shows like the Oscars and Golden Globes.
In terms of style, he doesn’t always get it right. But when he does, he looks darn sharp, which makes for a great case study, as there are plenty example of how small details can make or break your look.
For example, in these two photos Jonah show us how a little tailoring can go a long way.
Notice how something as simple and easy as getting your pants hemmed makes a huge difference in your overall appearance.
These simple alterations (which cost less than $50) change everything.
These two outfits below are basically the same – boots, jeans, button up shirt (tucked in) and a light jacket. Everything fits well. So why is the one on the right so much better?
We’ve seen how simple alterations can take a formal outfit to the next level, and how leaving a tux unaltered can be devastating for shorter gents. We’ve also seen that color choices, even just for simple accessories, make a huge difference in your overall appearance.
I thank Jonah Hill for allowing us to use him as a case study (not that he had a choice…). He’s a great actor and a very funny man. His height obviously hasn’t held him back from achieving great things, and I look forward to his future work.
