Well, I'm here to help you find the clothes that fit right and make you look taller in the process.
Before we start with the fashion advice, the following are some simple yet often overlooked tips that can help you appear taller:

Heavier and extremely muscular men tend to look broader and stubbier, but staying lean and having some muscle (such as built, defined shoulders) can help add some height to your overall frame.
