MANY BELIEVE THE DANISH ARE THE TALLEST PEOPLE IN THE WORLD. MAYBE THIS WAS ONCE THE CASE, BUT SINCE THEN THEY HAVE BEEN OVERPASSED BY THE DUTCH. INDEED THIS SMALL, TRADITIONALLY SEAFARING NATION BREEDS EXTRAORDINARY TALL PEOPLE, WITH AN AVERAGE LENGTH OF 185 CM / 6'. CONTRARY TO POPULAR BELIEVE, IT IS NOT TO KEEP THEIR HEADS ABOVE WATER. NO THERE IS A VERY DIFFERENT REASON FOR IT.
The human race evolves. That by itself is hardly a surprise. But what is a surprise is the the Dutch have evolved in a very rapid way over the past 150-200 years. Were they the shortest people in Europe for the first half of the 19th century with an average of 165cm / 5'5", since the 1980's they have become the tallest Europeans. The reason why is quite simple. It is well-known that we are much taller than our ancestors some 100 years ago because of improved nutrition. And better food often comes as a result of more wealth. In other words, if one has more money to buy healthy food, we would expect their children to grow taller and stronger. The average income for the Dutch has been static until the mid-late 19th century. With increased income after that time, people were able to buy healthier food. If you add to that the fact the Netherlands is one of the richest nations in the world, you can understand why it isn't only the tulips that grow tall in this country.
Apparently food is not the only reason to grow tall. There seems to be something in the Dutch genes that makes scientists believe that even the Dutch pre-civilized ancestors once were taller than the average. I don't think they were following a same nutritional program but at the same time it is also no secret that the Dutch diet is a very simple one. They eat lots of breads, meats and cheese and drink a lot of milk. A healthy, steady diet that helps you through the day. Hennie is a beautiful example of this.
We have known Gert Kist for years as the expert when it comes to Dutch male models. In the time we have worked with Gert he has presented us many stunning example of what the Netherlands have to offer in the area of male beauty. Indeed, the Dutch do not only stand with head and shoulders above all others, it's rich colonial history and current liberal social democracy have resulted in a population that is very mixed. And though Gert has since long ventured into other territories than the Netherlands, we can still always count on him to awe us with new Dutch talent. Hennie is a perfect example of this. This 19 year old Dutchie studies to become a personal trainer and can be found in the gym at least 3 times by week. And when he does it he does it in underwear from L4M.
L4M carries ranges for all kind of men. Athletic, sensual, erotic, classic. You name it, L4M has it. L4M's vision is to create a better looking man with the underwear he's wearing. Underwear that fits your posture and your personality. And when you stand out from the rest, such as the Dutch do, looking good is of course an inevitable. Add to that that with length all body parts are proportional, which leads directly to the need to have underwear that – well – carries well and comfortable. Hennie obviously shows that he has nothing to complain. Not in length, not in proportion and not in comfort. Enough so to make one yearn for more. So, I'd say, pass the Dutchie please. –BM-
