For fashion modeling, the man should be between 6’ and 6’2” and well built. The sample size for male model is 40R and there is generally no variation here. The male’s sample shoe size is usually 10. In commercial advertising, there are no specific criteria for height and size, unless it is clothing ads. The market is different, in that a male model’s career usually takes off in his early 20’s, as opposed to the female’s career in her teens; and it can last, in many cases, into his fifties.
