Long Torso, Short Torso...

Men with long torsos and short legs should never put on weight. If they do, the develop the porportions of gigantic babies.

torso to leg ratio is what makes a man look "humpy". I prefer longer torso-ed guys myself.

Long Torso, Short Legs - sounds like a Little People reality show.

Most men under six feet tall have longer torsos and therefore look somewhat squatty. Even if they manage to hit the six foot mark they always look shorter than the guy with longer legs and shorter torso. It's a simian thing and solely controlled through ones genetic makeup. Shorter torsos yield men with more acceptable proportions. I have the problem of being six feet tall and only wearing a 31" pant leg. Now that I've grown older, a 30' works just as well:(

Didn't Brad Davis have the Long Torso, Short Legs Syndrome? I think that's why he looked so simian (but oh-so delectable).

It's the Golden Ratio again. Long Torso/Short Torso are violations of the golden ratio and look... "off".

I have a long torso so I prefer men with short torsos.
This dovetails nicely with my scientific theory that men with high belly buttons have wondrous rocket-shaped dicks.
Unfortunately, they're the ones who age with that high paunch.

Long torso men are real men not leggy scrany guys, long torso men mean upper body strenth yea it would be bad for a longer torso person to gain wheight but i would want a long torso over a short one any day. women its ok to have a long one but not too long and not too short either.

I unfortunately suffer from this. My legs are very strong from supporting my disproportionately long torso.

In the "heartthrobs" who are ugly thread, somebody came to Tom Cruise's defense and said he had a great body. Great for what? A misshapen dwarf? Cruise has a short torso and even shorter legs. Not to mention a wide load flabby ass that he has to continuously get lipoed. Did you ever get a look at his fat desk jockey backside in Rainman? I'm pretty sure Dustin Hoffman was in better shape in that movie.%0D %0D Speaking of torsos, Matthew McCauneghey. Great torso, great legs, tiny little tyrannasaurus rex arms. Notice how many publicity stills of his cut off his arms.

Totally agree about Matt Mc's arms. Christina Ricci and Dolly Parton have the same problem.

Such a turn off is the long torso with short legs. Low crotch area. It's like two different types melded into one. I know someone like this who was cursed with his Italian grandfather's legs with a tall WASP torso. Unfortunately his son inherited this trait. It's a really hard trait to breed out of the bloodline.

I have a long torso and thick thighs and round phat ass. I am an even 6 foot. My legs are a bit proportionally short but I have broad shoulders, a small waist and narrow hips.
No one seems to complain.
I am not a fan of high asses on stilts, give me a shorter guy anyday.

My partner has that Long Torso/Short Legs syndrome, and it's impossible for him to find a well-fitting pair of pants off the rack. He has everything tailored, even his jeans. I have no trouble finding well-fitting pants, but I hate my stilt-legged spider-legs body.

6' and 31" inseam I too have very muscular legs and a bubble butt that has been declared the best fuck by more than one of my FWB's (including a so called straight bud who say no pussy compares to fucking me). it is true long torso you tend to carry weight in your stomach, I have to fight every day for my 6 pack..and it is 99% diet..

I would prefer the extra inch in my legs than in my torso.
Hard to find pants with legs short enough. My extra inch is in my neck and makes me look like a goon.

I'm 5'10" and I have a hard time finding pants off the rack that fit me. Even 29 inseams are too long. Sometimes I can find 28 inseams on line, but often I have to have things shortened or order them with my inseam. And I can never wear activewear (sweats, etc.) without elastic on the ends of the pantlegs.

I much prefer short torsos with long arms. I don't go for short guys, a guy I am FWB is 5'5, but his torso is much shorter than his legs...I just get turned on by it...I can't explain it, .

So how does this break down? Who has short torsos/long legs and long torsos/short legs? In my experience it seems black guys tend more to the former and white guys to the latter, but it's not a hard rule. Latino guys seem to go either way, but what about Asian guys? I don't have enough experience there. How are they generally proportioned?

I'm 5'10" and I have trouble finding pants short enough for me. 30" inseam is always too long, and it's not always easy finding 29" (or shorter.) And even though I'm far from tall, I have to buy tall sizes in shirts if I want them to stay tucked in.
