New Spiderman Andrew Garfield may not be a brawny superhero but the new Peter Parker does show why lanky, really is sexy.

We'll hate to be a "height-ist" but there is just something about their angular and statuesque silhouettes: it is hard to deny that these men truly wear the skinny suit best. Unsurprisingly, these men are fashion favourites too: most of them have modelled at one point or another.

So if all that muscle isn’t your idea of sexy, look to these toweringly tall and lean leading men; it doesn’t hurt that they’re some of the most stylish stars around too.
