Where would a 175cm woman come up to on a 6ft 4 man. If both the man and woman are standing barefoot on level floor.

Depends on how long the guy's head is but usually the very top of her head should reach just above his bottom lip( near the end of the nose).

@Bobby: I can see where Druce is coming from, but he doesn't have to be a **** about it. As short as like 2 months ago you claimed you were around 5'10.4 in the morning and about 5ft9.75 at night? How are you now 180cm at the age of 23? This is the type of growth coming from a 16 year-old.

French guy, if being 190+ cm makes you happy, I can't argue with that.

About 2.5 inches (6 cm) below eye level.
Bobby said on 24/Jul/17
@DruceLee, you are jealous mate, also what you just suggested was a logical fallacy. You admitted it is possible for men to grow in their 20a, and I am in my 20s, therefore, it's possible for me to also grow at this stage. However, in complete contradictin of your admission, you foolishly state the opposite. You are jealous. How tall are you? 5'5? Do I need to mentiion to you that I am eye level with other 5'10ners, and am almost eye level with 5'11ners? Face it, you're jealous. You're probably half a foot shorter than Greg and I. I feel confident I'm a solid to strong 5'10 guy now.
Bobby said on 24/Jul/17
@French guy, didn't say I was six foot barefoot, I said, I could be six foot with shoes on. Do you have any listening skills beyond what your brain wishes for you to comprehend? I would say my morning height is 5'10.75 now (If I get adequate sleep, and am well hydrated), so because I'm wearing sandals a lot (Yeah they wear sandals indoors in Greece, what is it?) I am at least 182cm with them. Over 5'11 for the whole day while wearing them because I looked at the heel, and they look like they give near an inch but over half an inch. I also didn't say I grew 6cm, (It would be 5cm though) I said I grew at most 2cm, or at the least, 1 to 1.5cm. Which would put me 5'11 range.

I would like to know how many inches did you gain after 17. Thank you.

Rob if you had a new facebook page would you ever considering having photos of you from early teens to late 30's and also recent photos of yourself.
Editor Rob: I don't have anywhere near as many photos as I thought growing up, some years I don't think I had any pictures!

I actually don't like being photographed that much 😁 😱

I was trying to find an early example of having a goatee and found one photo Click Here, but can't tell exactly what age I am there...over 16 and before 20.

Hey Rob, I'm confused, I measure 5'11.25 at night but wake up at 6'0.25. I thought people only lose about 3/4 of an inch throughout the day, I lose the whole inch it seems.
Kaylee said on 23/Jul/17
Where would a 175cm woman come up to on a 6ft 4 man. If both the man and woman are standing barefoot on level floor.
Editor Rob: her hair will likely be above mouth and near end of nose area.

Bobby said on 23/Jul/17
@insomniak, actually, I experienced well over a quarter inch of growth at 20, and over an inch at 19. At 21, I grew again another quarter inch. Now at 22, I've been slowly gaining height, as of now, I've grown over a centimetre. Half an inch I would say. And optimistically, just under an inch. I would say my night time height is exactly 5'10 now, and I'm near 5'11 in the morning.
blazer said on 23/Jul/17
@Mark(5'9.5),. My guess for Chris Pratt is my own opinion, and I'm entitled to that. I think he's either a lift wearer or wears big heels at times. Just Google his name and look at all the pics of him with 6 footers. When he isn't wearing big boots he is around 6 foot, and I see people guessing him 6'2.
Also what is your fasonation with Johnny Depp? Is he your man crush? I'm exactly 5'10 at my lowest and Depp is probably 5'9 so we would be very similar in height.
french guy 183-185 cm said on 23/Jul/17
@slim 182 cm

no 190-195 are really the perfect height, you can have a great a great body at any height.
At 195 cm you dominate others, no one you will mess with you, with training you easily beat anyone. And you don't have any trouble with women. So where is the problem?
Let's end this myth, 190-195 cm are not too tall, you won't be lanky all your life as long as you workout. 195 cm is far more superior to 185 cm and below !
french guy 183-185 cm said on 23/Jul/17

I Don 't unserstand , you were 177 cm at night and now you are 183 cm ?
It s impossible to grow 6 cm in only 1 month when your growth is done.
Bobby said on 23/Jul/17
@DruceLee, yeah screw off. Just to piss you off even more, how about I don't do what you ask, how about that? 😜 Just to rile you up further, how about I insult you in my native tongue? Βλακος. Okay, I've heard of cases where people in their late 20s gain an inch of height. It's not as uncommon as people think. Good diet, exercise, and sleeping habits ensure maximum potential, At worst, I'm a strong 5'10 now, but I doubt it because I look minimum 182+ centimetres with shoes on. Idiot.

How much do these add,Rob?
I'm 5'11.25-5'11.5 range.

Editor Rob: not as thick as some other air max styles, close to an inch
DruceLee said on 23/Jul/17
@G 5'11 ofcourse im not jelaus and ofcourse people can grow in their 20s and ofcourse Bobby didnt grow mm... you are just obsessed with height, I watching comments and i van clearly see that he have some problem and you are not far from him
Bob said on 23/Jul/17
Rob, if I measure 182.5cm (on average) 5 hours after waking, what should I claim? Would I be a decent 6ft?
Editor Rob: if you went to the Doctor at that time, he'd say about 6ft.

I think there are many guys who fall a little under who just say 6ft.
Bobby said on 23/Jul/17
@G 5'11, based on that, I would have also be 6ft myself around him, or 6'1 as well.
G 5'11 said on 23/Jul/17
@DruceLee you're stupid people can grow in their 20's, though rare but some people can still gain a fraction. I think you are going to be salty if Bobby actually grows, are you jealous?
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 23/Jul/17
@G 5'11

If your friend has ever guessed your height did he guess you as 6'1"? People who inflate their own height overestimate others, though it's not always the case.
Brendan 179cm said on 23/Jul/17
How tall would I be in hiking boots ? If I'm 5,11 for the day
James Edward Crowley said on 23/Jul/17
Rob how many inches is considered towering 3 inches and 4 inches is not quite towering but on the borderline of towering,I consider 5 inches and 6 inches the start of a towering height difference like a 5ft 6in man and a 5ft 7in man are much shorter than a 6ft 0in man.a 5ft 8in man and a 5ft 9in man are still much shorter than a 6ft 0in man.
Editor Rob: once you see over the head of somebody, that becomes a very big visual difference, so it could be 6 inches.

@ Sandy Cowell

I hope your weekend is good too! I don't really have any favourites when it comes to music but I do like music in general and will listen to a lot of what there is to offer, good music certainly gives me an adrenalin rush and a lift, so yes it gives you more enthusiasm which was in your case taking in the heights of the pedestrians! Well I must say that there are a lot of interesting people about in the Bromley area if you regularly see the kind of people that you have described!

I still can't get over seeing the man who was about 7'0" at the rugby league match last weekend!

I hope you liked the health tips that I posted on Rob's page on the 20th July.

Cheers, my friend!
blazer said on 23/Jul/17
@Bobby, I think you probably still just 5'10 at night or a little lower, I'm not sure what's up with all this..I feel 5'11 now. Just measure yourself if you think you've gained a bunch of height at this late age.
@G5'11, do you seriously want me to make a height video and show I'm 5'10 "average height" seriously? It's nothing special half of all guys are taller then me. I will make a video if I need to. Where is your video by the way?
Valhalla said on 23/Jul/17
Mums a little bit taller than my shoulder and she's 5 ft-5'1. I measured a few years ago at 1.80 cm tall I think and when I met some 6'1-6'2ers my eyes were way above their moustache area. So I can only assume that I'm 182 cm or taller..
insomniak said on 23/Jul/17
@Bobby I don't think you'll grow at 23 if you haven't seen any noticible growth since you were in your teens. It just seems highly unlikely.
Mark(5'9.5") said on 23/Jul/17
A solid 5'10" claiming 5'11" doesn't surprise me in the slightlest.

Also, the fact that @blazer gave a 5'11.5" guess for 'Chris Pratt' already indicates he's already lying. Sorry @blazer, but I'm starting to doubt you're not even 5'10" or maybe like closer to Johnny Depp's height.

Normally, I won't be this aggressive, but I'm having a sense @blazer is likely closer to Depp's height.
DruceLee said on 23/Jul/17
@Bobby yes you piss me off haha measure yourself you are 177cm guy with some trouble on your head..dont be sad 177 is average height
Canson said on 23/Jul/17
@G5'11: a lot of guys do that lol. I've met one that claimed 6'4 and couldn't have been more than 6'1.5 or 6'2. He didn't challenge me on my height someone else did but I offered to get tape and his time changed to he was told by someone else who also claims 6'4, but then had a guy who was 6'3.25-.5 tops tell me at a bar he was 6'5 then it became he's 6'5" with shoes which had to be a morning height because I had casual shoes and had him by half or so when he was in sneaks. Not to mention my 6'3" friend was at most half inch lower. It then became "well I walk around in shoes so I feel I can claim them" and "well you're probably 6'6" if you wear a sneaker and you could be this if you wore this type of shoe". That's when I had to walk away lol
Canson said on 23/Jul/17
@Blazer: I agree on most of what you said. If you are over 1/2@ at your evening it's fair to round up. Someone like matt tho claiming 5'11 or even 5'10.75 is a morning height tho and he'd be a solid 5'10". That's the problem with claiming Morning is you can't measure it later in the day so it will look like and inflation
Nb said on 22/Jul/17
Rob, would you say an honest to weak 5ft11 guy (180cm) ought to feel tallish in the west? Even in the 18-30 generation? I feel mostly upper average but can seem tall to others, especially when wearing dress shoes. As a side note, I've been visiting your site for almost 2 years and would like to thank you for maintaining it!
Editor Rob: at times he will feel tall, other times not so much...but I think there is still an association with spotting more taller people than short, hence you could find 5ft 11 guys thinking they were average at best. They remember a lot of the taller people who walk by, and not as many of the shorter people...
Bobby said on 22/Jul/17
@Brendan 179cm, nice, my dad actually squeezed out an inch in his mid 20s, and I inherited my height from him. They measured him 6ft in the army, and I'm 5'10/5'11 currently. I'm turning 23 next month, so I still have room to squeeze out that extra inch.
Bobby said on 22/Jul/17
@DruceLee, then I guess my taller look in photos and in reflection must be my imagination then. You know what, just to piss you off, how about I tell you to go screw yourself and that I'll be the decider of whether my growth plates have closed or not? 177cm guy my ass, you're an idiot.
Sandy Cowell said on 22/Jul/17
@ Nik - Let's just say that it's a thousand times easier to stare out of the car window when there is music playing that I am completely nuts about, and I am quite crazy about the Doors!
Good background music makes it SO much more absorbing to take in people's stats! Today, Pink Floyd's album, 'The Final Cut', heavily influenced by Roger Waters' much later stuff and his solo work, was playing, and I picked up on quite a few pony-tailed, tall and tallish guys! I have no doubt that the 'results' were heavily influenced by what I wanted to see, so I found it all quite funny!
I'll suggest putting on some Janis Joplin next time and see if I keep coming across 5ft5, long-haired women in biker jackets - which would be seriously freaky!

I hope your're enjoying your weekend, Nik! Cheers, my friend! 🍻👍🐰😊🐩☕🍱🍦🐈😌

Post a measurement video bob
G 5'11 said on 22/Jul/17
Also a funny thing happened the other night, so my strong 6'2 friend who claims to be 6'4. He even has a rapper name for himself in which he calls himself "Ram 6'4" idk why Ram but the '6'4"' is apparently his height.(He says "Ram 6'4 I am at your door) lol. Now he easily has two inches on my legit 6 foot friends, I noticed that from the beginning. I pegged him at a strong 6'2, and he just looked noticeably shorter then some of my 6'3 friends. Another thing is I'm 5'11 so according to his logic if he was 6'4 I would have been at least 6'0-6'1. One of these days I have to bring somebody who's 6 ft 3 or 4 and have him make his claim, and then just see how he tries to inflate them xD. I honestly think he got measured in shoes in the morning and rounded up because he defintely can look a 6'3 guy with nikes on.. without them he looks a decent 6 ft 2 guy. But we got the tape measure out, we didn't measure him against the wall with a can method ( we should have, but my friends aren't big height enthusiast's such as myself) so they kind of did the whole "Jake Gyllenhaal tape measure to the side" type of measurement. He was slightly above the 74inch mark, how much though I couldn't exactly tell because the way his hair was styled it was reaching around the 75 inch mark, I could tell the actual top of his head was a bit below 6'3. him and his brother tried to say 6ft 3 ( immediately shutting down his 6'4 claim anyways) however I could see he wasn't quite yet a 6'3 guy not even a weak 6'3 guy, at most strong 6'2. Will have to do a proper measurement for him one of these days. Then again the majority of my friend group gives themselves 1-2 inches. I don't remember the last time I heard an honest claim, except for my 5'11 math tutor, and two of my 6'3 friends. Also I remember my one friend who looked about 5'7 did make an honest claim too.
TLDR: Debunking my friends 6'4 claim, measuring him and only a few honest guys about their height, in my friend group
G 5'11 said on 22/Jul/17
@Matt179 Blazer claims to be 5'10" or something, but I think he probably is lying. Mind as well post a measuring video.. other wise I don't know don't think he is.

188cm at wake up is possible but at your low I don't think so.

I thought French guy was trolling all time , now I see it's the truth , recently I joined a university where 6' seems just average or sometimes below avg( in crowded places), hate it. I used to be one of the tallest in high school days,

Let me get it clear here 6'1,6'2,6'3,also 6'4 Seems common as ****
Every other guy surpassing me is taller than me, before I thought 6'2 was a good enough tall height now it sounds same as 5'10, any height below 6'3 isn't even a solid height here
DruceLee said on 22/Jul/17
@Bobby haha wtf you are 177cm guy and you have some isuess with your are obsesed with will always be 177-178..your grow plates are closed forever
blazer said on 22/Jul/17
@Matt177, I'm not the one claiming my morning height and wearing lifts throughout the day to enforce it.
I feel that if you are over .5 inches at your lowest then you can round up. Say you were 5'10.5 at night at your lowest then you can claim 5'11..for this site I would still say 5'10 1/2. If you wake up at 5'10.7 and you are claiming 5'11, that is just weird because your going to be a little under 5'10 at your lowest.
I know I seem picky because some people like claiming their morning height, but on this site at least they should claim it as morning height to end confusion.
Big Rob could say he's 5'9 morning and we would understand. Or Matt179morning would be better.
Bobby said on 22/Jul/17
@Mark 5'9.5, Yeah, I think my morning height is at 181cm because I used to wake up at 179cm, I feel pm average, 2cm taller. I'm pretty much a 5'11 guy now. I might be 184cm with shoes on because I look like a six footer in pictures.
Bryan said on 22/Jul/17
Hey guys, do you think it's possible to gain 1-2 cms if my posture was bad. my currently night height is 184.2cm and morning height is 186cm.
i have bad posture and also mild scoliosis (about 10 degree) if i got it all fixed would it be hard for me to reach 188cm?
Nik said on 22/Jul/17
@ Sandy Cowell

I often look out of car windows to take in people's heights! It's what comes with being a "height nut extraordinaire"!
It's nice to hear your story of the pigeons who looked to be dancing to the music in your boyfriend's car, I bet you didn't lose interest in people's heights for long though!

I couldn't believe it last night when Michael Shanks popped up as a random celeb! Coincidence, or what?

Have a great weekend Sandy!

@Redwing, that person might be 180cm, if the 177cm guy is 3cm below the hairline.
Bobby said on 22/Jul/17
@Matt179, aesthetically speaking, I think 6'0 is a perfect height. If you get ripped, and have a strong Mesomorphic build, you'll look great at that height. When it comes to looking ripped, I think 5'10 to 6'1 are good heights to pull it off.
Nik said on 22/Jul/17

Sandy Cowell said on 22/Jul/17
@ Nik - I was staring out of my boyfriend's car window a couple of days ago now taking in the people's heights and listening to 'The Doors' track 'America'.
I saw a fabulous sight: a couple of pigeons looking for all the world as though they were dancing in time to the music!
It was wonderful, and for a moment, I lost all interest in the heights of anyone and everyone out there!

Have a great weekend too Nik! 👍

I have seen a 6'5 woman in flats my brother is 184 cms and she towered him and me a midget 177-8cms by a lot was easily 6'4.5 because she was same height as his boss a 6'4.75 guy who looked normal next to the woman who was older and still 6'5

Lol blazer you crack me up, Im never Under 5foot10 Anytime of the day, Even after been squatting 315 pounds for reps.

I wake up at 5foot10.75 and Lowest is 5foot10 on the dot at 11pm after Work day and Gym squatting compress spine like hell.

You probably 5foot6 man? Manlet angry?

I still think 6foot1(185cm) Barefeet is the Best height for a man. Above that your Lanky and under that you kinda short.
Redwing said on 21/Jul/17
If 177 cm is 3 cm shorter than a guys hairline how tall is he?
Redwing said on 21/Jul/17
What height comes up to the hairline of a 183 cm guy rob?
Editor Rob: on average a 5ft 10.5 guy, but also 5ft 10 or 11...there's a bit of variation with hairlevel heights, just like shoulder heights or chin/eyes.

@ Sandy Cowell

Nowt wrong with being cat-owning and sudoku-playing, or being a visitor to! Nothing wrong with the other things either! - You are not mouthy by the way!

To be honest the majority of women are not tall and women are very diverse in height, there are s hell if a lot of smaller women about and I would say more women are small than tall. Nevertheless I will give you one example of what I am on about, when my Mum and I get on the bus ion the way to the shops every week I take notice of the heights of the regular passengers and I can't think iof a single tall man but there are 2 elderly women who I see regularly who are both about my heights! However most of the women I see are ion the small side.

Have a fab weekend!

spaniard said on 21/Jul/17
Bertin Osborne has always been considered in height as 6'5" (1m96) and I think it's accurate, even this days... though its possible too that he is now around 6'4.5-6'4.75. Still a really good looking tall man, and I think it could be interesting to having him added to the site, despite the fact that he's only a celebrity in Spain and Latinoamerica!
Bobby said on 21/Jul/17
@Brendan 179cm, I've been vacationing in my home country, Greece, for a week now and I've noticed a change in my stature. I look taller and feel taller, I am certain that with shoes on, I am 6ft and 5'11 flat barefoot, and 182cm in sandals, which give 2cm. I haven't measured myself in a whole but I expect to see a difference of 2cm for me height, or at worst 1-1.5cm.

@6'1.5, quarter inch you'll grow. Solid height.

@french guy, imo 6'1.5 is the highest you can be to look good, without having to go the gym everyday, maybe.

Overall 6'0 to 6'3 is good height.
Brendan 179cm said on 21/Jul/17
Bobby you might have grown I've grown to a bit over 181 morning and 180.5 in the afternoon with a 179.6/7 low
I guess I'm 5,11 now not 5,10.5
I'm 20 and I did do alot of Tennis this year so I've probably exceeded my growth

Rob what is the tallest woman you have seen in heels when out in public the tallest woman I have seen in heels when out in public was like 6ft 9in she was at least 6ft 6in barefoot.
Editor Rob: there used to be a cosplayer who wore goth boots and she looked 6ft 8 range, but was more 6ft 4-5 barefoot. I've rarely see any women over 6ft 3 in public for a while.
Bobby said on 21/Jul/17
178cm to 188cm are the ideal ranges for a male, not night time heights, jet heights in general. I'm positive also that I grew another 1cm as I feel taller than usual. Whether you believe that or not Michael, is your progative. I make this category blazer, I've been feeling a solid 179 to 180cm these days.
Nik said on 21/Jul/17
I have started to come to the conclusion that there are more tall women than tall men but more very tall men than very tall women!
G 5'11 said on 21/Jul/17
@Michael R you do realize the "ideal height" is all opinion based so what's the perfect height (183cm 6 feet) for you isn't going to be the same as (178cm 5'10 for Bobby) personally for me not even either of those heights are perfect. I would say 6'1-6'2 would be the start of ideal but anything between 5'11-6'2 is the sweet spot. Just like how some guys prefer petite girls and others prefer chubby girls. Everyone has a different idea for what their ideal height is.
@6'1.5 said on 21/Jul/17
187 cm is the perfect height.
You are 4 cm above the legal guy 6 feet (183 cm) and 4 cm below the strong 6'3 "guy (191 cm).
This is more than enough in the real world, you do not need to be taller.
Now my evening growth is 6'1.25 "(186 cm), and I pray to God that I will grow up to 187-187.5 (6'1,5-6'1,75") until 20-21 years (I'm 18 y.o).
Although already now I'm just happy to be legal 6'1" (I'm an excellent and perfect height).

blazer said on 21/Jul/17
I would say perfect height is between 5'10 and 6'. And that's night time height..not I'm that lunch time!_. If you between 5'10 and 6' at night you have the perfect height. Not too lanky, you can pull off the perfect height! Bobby and matt178 don't make this category, but they wish they did. They are just a little too short.
Sarah said on 21/Jul/17
Hi Rob,

What height would you say is noticeably short for adult females in America or Canada? I am 1.56 or 1.57 m and I feel somewhat short even though the average is 5'4.5".
Editor Rob: I've heard women on twitter say they are short and give a height like 5ft 3...I would still class that as average. Once into 5ft 1-2 range, that is more short
179cm said on 21/Jul/17

Tall enough to just go with 170cm or 5'7".

@James Edward Crowley

172cm is below average, but 'short' is more like under 170cm.

@Michael R

You have to conduct a survey to find out the average height in your area, you can't just base the average off of your gut feeling. No way the average US is 179-180 even for young guys. It's been proven that the measured average for a white male and female aged between 20-39 is about 5'10" and 5'5", but I would shave a fraction inch off because of early measurements.
Mark(5'9.5") said on 21/Jul/17
I remember one person (Ben) in Kung Fu Class that sparred with me. He looked exactly like me except he had a near 11 inch head. (I was 13 and I was nearly 5'8" at that time. In height, he was a sub colossus and had to duck for many doors.) Of course, people told me he was 6'6", but seeing him again in person for a few more times, I realized that the he was downplaying himself and easily was over 6'7" like 6'7.25" or 6'7.5".

Edit* Rob, my question is, if the look a like me is 6'7.25"-6'7.5" in person (I did spar with him at 13 years old), how would he compare to the dutch people? (He and I are also half chinese people)
Michael R said on 20/Jul/17
@bobby 178 cm is not in the perfect height range. Not even 180. 183 is the minimum perfect height range starting point. 183-195 is the range. With 190 being the ideal. How can a height that's below average be even considered perfect?
c-mo said on 20/Jul/17
190cm is absolutely awesome if you have the right body for it and can carry the height well . Ashton Kutscher is a good example of such a guy even though I guess he is a bit below 190cm but you get the point

however many guys that height are not like that

I measured a friend of mine at 183.5 on the stadiometer today . I would guess his low would be about 183cm because it was midday but I dont know how long he has been up . I will measure him tomorrow again lol. I am 176cm and as crazy as it sounds he doesnt look much taller than me and I barely have to look up when I talk to him ...we are fairly similar despite that many centimeters of difference . I guess he just has a built that makes him look a bit smaller for a 183-184cm

his height looks very good . but if I had to take him as an example of an 183-184cm guy then I would say the perfect height would be more like 185cm at night or something but as I said he just seems shorter than he is for a 184cm guy . if I wouldnt know him and saw him for the first time I would probably guess him 181cm or so

however the perfect height imo is not much above my friends height nonetheless and to get back to the point a height like 190cm given the right body/build etc. is great but it is too tall to be considered perfect in my opinion . I dont think anything above 185cm at night can even be considered perfection because it is just going into the overkill zone and the glass is already full at 185cm for sure
HonestSlovene said on 20/Jul/17
187 cm is ideal male height IMHO.

Hi rob if my low/ night height is 181cm or almost 181 am I 5'11 and a half or just 5'11 ? Can I claim any of the 2? Of course I'd prefer 5'11 and a half also what would my morning height be ?
Editor Rob: you should hit 6ft early in the morning.
Saying something like 'just over 5ft 11' covers your height....some guys in your position certainly would say 5ft 11 and a half.
Bobby said on 20/Jul/17
Perfect height ranges are from 178cm to 188cm, especially if you want to build muscle. The most cosmetically pleasing height for a man though is 183cm but with a Mesomorph build, like Chris Evans basically.
Matt179 said on 20/Jul/17
@french guy 183-185 cm

190cm is too tall. You will Not look good proportional wise. Taller isnt always better.

And if your skinny your going to look lanky. Most guy that i know that are above 6foot1 Look Lanky.

In my opinion the perfect height is a True 6foot1(185cm) Barefeet. At this height your taller than Average guys and you look more build than 6foot2 guys.

Arnold swarzaneger was 6foot1.5 inches barefeet. And when he bodybuild he was looking like a God because of his height and build(Low bodyfat and muscle)
Slim 182 cm said on 20/Jul/17

Editor Rob: quite rare in my home town, there are only a few I remember seeing who were 6ft 7-8 range in the last few years.
Slim 182 cm said on 20/Jul/17
french guy, for once, we agree. I do think though being 195 can have problems Such as lower life expectancy, Harder to maintain an aesthetic body weight. And back problems. And 99% of the time we'd just slouch and never fill out the height.
Michael R said on 20/Jul/17
I was in downtown Columbus today around a lot of young males, 18-35 old. The average was very much 179-180. I saw probably about a thousand people total checking out the different bars/grills. Tallest guy I saw was 6ft 8 and in sandals so possibly 6ft 9. Shortest guy I saw was 5 ft 2. 6 foot seemed to only be in the 70 percentile, I felt solid tall, very tallish at solid 6 foot 2. In my lebrons was 6'3.

@Bobby: in regards to what C Mo said evening is actually closest to your actual height. Your height loss pattern is very odd. I lose 1/2" after 2-3 hours max depending on whether I am out and about and am only 1/4" above my evening height after. Rob says your height after 5 hours but I've also seen 7-8 too on sites. Most people lose 1/2" in no more than 3 or so hours and only maybe 1/4" after unless very active like hitting the gym

Slim 181 cm said on 16/Jul/17
190 cm = ideal male height imo. but to look good at 190, you must be low body fat and have a large torso. Along with perfect proportions(etc not having t-Rex arms, or long torso/short legs.) Otherwise y1ou'll look like a cheese string. But if perfect weight/proportions/body fat, you'll look like a god. While the top pro is shorter and thinner men will respect you out of fear of being bashed, another pro is a lot of hot women these days are 5'9 and 5'10, so you may have a chance with them. 😀🤝✌🏻Add to the list if you must.

190-195 cm are perfect heights

@Sammy Derrick, there isn't much to compare your height in the picture to. Your fairly skinny which makes you appear taller, but I'd guess you somewhere between 5'7-5'9.
Michael R said on 18/Jul/17
Sammy derrick I would say about 5'9 based on the photos
Canson said on 18/Jul/17
@G5'11: I wholeheartedly agree with you bro! That's how I see it as well in some scenarios. Then others I see a guy who may hit 6'4" out of bed and be 6'3.25 or 6'3 evening if they lose an inch and then I edge them by over an inch because they were told they were 6'3 5/8 or 3/4 an hour after waking. That right there is noticeable but other cases where it's like you have it minimal difference like string vs weak I'll usually just say I'm 6'4 1/2 and 7/10 times the other one will call himself 6'3.5 or something. I'm ok with that as long as they aren't inflating me or someone else to arrive at it since technically I can claim 6'4" if I wanted since I'm closer to it or 6'5 since I'm a touch over some mornings and still bang 195.6 others if I don't get as much sleep (tested Sunday AM and was only solid 6'5" when I woke but also didn't get as much sleep or maybe I've lost a fraction now😂
Greg said on 18/Jul/17
Rob. Are men over 6'6 still uncommon nowadays. Many who claim 6'6 are probably 6'4-5. And When does one become a giant in your opinion.
Editor Rob: at 6ft 6-7 you certainly become a standout in a big crowd.

Over 6ft 6 is still quite rare, but go to any big city and walk around a lot and you will see people over it.
jamie said on 18/Jul/17
Hi Rob, I am bang on 175cm at night barefoot, should i claim 5 foot 8.75 or 5 foot 9?
Editor Rob: I think most, if very close to a mark will say it...others might go with 'about/almost'.

In your case I'd be claiming 5ft 9.
JohanS said on 18/Jul/17

@Sammy Derrick, your posture is not completely upright but from seeing you, you seem 5'9 to 5'10 range. I'd be surprised if you were 5'11 or taller. And surprised if you were shorter than 5'9.

I saw a conversation about lifts down there, I have a couple of sneakers that makes me 6'1.5" during the night at 5'11.38" barefoot, and I would say with that height in shoes I look like a legit 6'0.75" barefoot guy, that would also hit 6'1.5" when in regular shoes
Greg said on 18/Jul/17
Rob. How often do you see legit 6'4+ men.
Editor Rob: Greg, if I am at my local town centre at times like lunch, I will certainly see a number of 6ft 4-5 men, especially if I go near lunchtime and the local high school kids are about and all the workers are out at lunch. But I'm walking by 500-1000 men so the vast majority still look 6ft and under to me.

G 5'11 said on 18/Jul/17
Posters here saying a half inch is noticeable, no not really unless you are going to measure it.. right off the bat even guys who are a bit shy off the mark wouldn't get called out. Only in an instance where a strong x height mark guy rounds down, and a guy next to him is a flat or weak x of that mark only then people might say " oh well he's saying he is this and he is a bit taller" but outside of celeb heights these scenarios are unlikely.

like I said most guys just add an inch or two to their height. Or claim an in shoe rounded up height. That's just what society has become..
G 5'11 said on 18/Jul/17
@Blaze well since everybody likes to be so precise on this forum, figured I would correct you to those standards. And obviously not everybody is going to wear lifts, that's just the way it is some will, others will not.
James Edward Crowley said on 18/Jul/17
Rob once men reach 5ft 7.75in a weak 5ft 8in are they heading towards average height men who are in the 5ft 8in range almost never look short even if they standing next to people who are shorter than them and taller than them it doesn't matter if they are barefoot or wearing converse sneakers with insoles and shoe lifts.
Editor Rob: having lived at 5ft 8 for 26 years, there are definitely times you can feel short in a crowd, but other times very average (in the UK at least).

I still feel overall a weak 5ft 8 range is going to feel at the bottom end of average and at the top end of short.

When I'm 182.7 morning, 181.7-184.4 during the day, and as I have seen 181.3 at ultimate low, could I say 5'11 1/3? Everybody says either 5'11 1/2 or 5'11 1/4, but I like the 1/3 better lol.

182cm is a solid height, I measure around that with my shoes on. I want to measure myself though because I feel taller recently and might have grown to 5'11. Haven't had the chance to measure my height though.
c-mo said on 18/Jul/17
Bobby said on 17/Jul/17
@c-mo, that's false. Evening heights aren't accurate, I think of height as being what you measure most of the day, not at night. Principally, your true height is your morning height, it's the height you naturally are without the effect of gravity.


@Bobby whats false ? I didnt say that evening height is our true height I just used it for my height chart since morning height varies and people lose different amounts of height during the day . so I wanted to take an evening height (but not absolute/extreme lowest either) to give a more neutral grounding . 175cm to 181cm in the evening is medium/average range . if we would talk about morning heights then it would be 177cm - 183cm or so

Slim 182 cm said on 17/Jul/17
c-mo, I've supplied a link to a good(probably the only) a Wikipedia page with links to reliable sources, 5'9 and 5'10 are arguably the most common heights for white men. Remember most people claim their morning height and that's why we think 6' isn't tall but in reality we're looking at 5'11.5 guys. I measure 5'11.75 midday, it's not that bad, but I fail to tower average men, but am considerably taller with good posture.
Click Here


@Slim 182 cm

first of all : lol as if 5'11.5 is such a big difference to 6'0 .

either way average height for a male living in europe is around 177-178cm in the evening . a little above and below of this value is the average range hence my listing of 175-181 . after that it starts to get short/tall more and more . you at 182-183cm midday are a little above average and you have a great height also
Matt179 said on 17/Jul/17

If you are 5foot9.25

Wear Nike air Max 90(1.35) and buy 1 inch foam shoe lift for 2.35 of Real height increase over your barefeet height.

You will be 5foot11.50.

Personally i think the max height someone can wear for confort and to be totally unitocieable is 2.25 too 2.5 inches including the shoe and the lift.

Over that its not confortable and its noticeable.
Matt179 said on 17/Jul/17

Im not 177cm,177cm is 5foot9.7 I never reach 5foot9.7 the lowest i am barefeet is 5foot10 on the dot at 11pm after a day of work and sports.

Again blazer, I measure myself imidietly when i wake up and im 5foot10.75.

over the course of the day i lose 0.75 inches of height. So at around 11pm at night i measure 5foot10 on the dot.

But when im out in society during the day People that dont know my height by tape measure dont know about my height, They see me at 5foot10.5 During the whole day.

If someone ask my height during the day do you really think im going to say 5foot10.5 inches? I round up 0.5 inches of height for 5foot11.

Im not like 90% of the guy that say they are 1 to 2 inches over their barefeet height, Like a 5foot11 claiming 6foot1. This is ridiculous claiming 2 inches over your real height, But 0.5 inches is not ridiculous, its not even noticeable.

I just round up 0.5 inches of height too 5foot11. No ones ever called me on that claim. And during the day im really 5foot10.5.

When i wear my nike sneakers + 1 inch shoe lift The top of my head reach 6foot0.5 , But i claim im 6foot on the dot.

I just say Im 6 feet.
Matt179 said on 17/Jul/17
@Michael R

Nike shoes give the most height. Adidas give less height.

Rob measure Nike Airmax 90 and it really give 1.35 inches of height.

No nike shoes reach 1.5 inches of height, Think about it thats too much, someone running with them would have problem if they were 1.5. Too steep.

One other nike shoes give 1.4 inches of height, but im not telling which one lol im keeping this for myself!

Airforce one give 1.25 inches of height.

Again ive been wearing Nike sneakers for 10 years with 1.4 inches of real height and i buy those cheap 1 inch foam shoe lift, it really give 2.4 inches of height.

I measure myself with them afterwork(4pm) and the top of my head i reach 6foot.05 inches.

At this height i really feel taller than most people. It make me look leaner looking from distance. I look more slender and leaner than if i was wearing 0.5 inches of height shoes.

Most people wear 0.75 to 1 inch of height shoes. so i got an 1.4 inches of height advantage over my normal height if i was in 1 inch shoes.

At 6foot0.5 inches I feel really tall. Sometime you got 6foot2 guys that look taller than me. But i read if your like 6foot barefeet your taller than 90% of the guys.

But the interesting thing is this. I got the build of a 5foot11 guy. But when i wear shoes + lift, I look slimmer and slender than a 6foot2 guy standing beside him. Since a 6foot2 body will take up more space than a 5foot11 body.He look bigger than me body wise but were kinda the same height.
anon said on 17/Jul/17
Most People claim their Out of bed height? really I doubt most folks are going to get measured upon waking more like mid morning or afternoon its more likely they give their height in shoes or round up i would guess bt no Idea,

Slim your basically a solid 5'11.5- 5'11.75 range weak 6'0 good height, you measure your height midday at home or had it checked at doctors
blazer said on 17/Jul/17
@Greg, I was just making a point that no matter how tall you are with lifts and what people see you as with them, you are still only your true barefoot height at night. Change my prior post to a 3-4 inch lift that way I can be 6'2-6'3. Lol. I am not a lift wearer and never would feel the need to want to be.

G 5'11 said on 17/Jul/17
@Scott, I guess many people don't see legit 5'11ers around. So 5'9 being already comfortably tall for a woman, most try to sneak in a 5'10-5'11 claim, especially if they are decent 5'9 range. As for you, I would probably say you're decent 6 footer, I can't believe they call you out on the half inch. I wouldn't if I was with you, shiet I have friends who are barely 5'10 claiming 6 feet..
Blake said on 17/Jul/17
Rob, have you ever seen kids not have big spurts like 6 inches in a couple of years during puberty?

Hey big rob just a quick question. I havnt seen anyone ask you this before. What height do you wish you were? your 'ideal height'? Also which height do you think looks the most aestheticaly pleasing for a man?
Editor Rob: I think for my head size I would look more proportional being 4-5 inches taller. I've said before I think the 6ft mark is the best height for taking photos with celebrities. 6ft 4-5 would be harder to get photos, as over the years I've seen many celebrities go on tip toes with guys that range...

Many people think 6ft 1-2 range is aesthetically an ideal height.

no I cant agree . it doesnt make sense to me because first of all you cant put 172cm and 182cm in one and the same category and 2. short at 171cm but then suddenly medium at 172cm and in the same bracket all the way to 182cm ?
Greg said on 17/Jul/17
@Blazer, I doubt it lol you aren't a strong 5'11, even I wouldn't reach 6'2 in the morning with lifts, unless you get them in boots or something but you would need massive lifts. Wouldn't be able to walk comfortably, I would say about 6'1 range in the morning can be achieved as a weak 5'11 guy.

I am 5'11 too (5'11.5 in the morning & 5'10.75 at night) and I've read Matt's description, and if he's being completely honest about his height, then I don't blame him for the 5'11 claim as he will be a guaranteed 5'11 in shoes most of the day, and to an average person, no one would turn a blind eye, let's be honest. Whilst Matt is a complete 5'10 guy, no doubt, I don't think his claim will really affect anyone, but I can see where you're coming from. Just like we could easily claim 6'.

172 cm and below: short
173 - 181 cm medium
182 cm and above: tall


you are both not quite right . this is how it is :

evening heights :

very short : below 166cm

short : 166cm - 171cm

below medium / grey area : 172-174cm

Medium : 175cm - 181cm with 177-178cm being bang on medium height

above medium / grey area : 182-184cm

tall : 185cm and over

very tall : 191 or 192cm and over

I am not quite sure if I should put 172cm as already short OR 174cm as medium . or if I should put 184cm in the tall category instead of above average . but in general my listing is how it is in real life according to my experiences
blazer said on 17/Jul/17
@Matt177, some people claim their morning height and I guess that's ok, but you don't even reach 5'11 when you wake up. I'm over 5'11 when I wake up but my low is closer to 5'10 so I claim 5'10. You definitely shouldn't round up on your morning height!. Lol. With your lifts you can claim whatever in daily life because people don't know the difference, but on this site be honest. There is nothing to gain by inflating your height. I could wear 2 inch lifts and be 6'2 in the morning, but in reality I'm still just 5'10.

How do most you guys knows exact heights etc, You measured at Doctors or at home with a tape measure not sure can you just go to your doctors and ask if they can measure your height on the Stadiometer, I only measured in house normally have someone else take the measurement, It just seems too hard trying to measure yourself.

No I'm 6ft 8 in dress shoes, about 6ft 7 barefoot.
Scott said on 16/Jul/17
I am 6' 0" in the morning and 5' 11.5" at night. I tell everyone that I'm about six feet. What pisses me off is my younger sister is barely above five foot nine, and she claims 5' 11". My brother is maybe half an inch taller than me, probably not even, but he claims 6' 1". When we stand side by side, there is basically no discernible difference in height between us, and we are both obviously taller than my sister, but she never bats an eye claiming 5' 11". But people call my less than half an inch bluff. What the heck?
jamie said on 16/Jul/17

Jordan said on 16/Jul/17
@TheReelYeah I was surprised to find out I gained significant height at an age where you don't expect it anymore it definitely makes you feel unique because it doesn't seem to be that common, if you got measured at 197-198 a couple of hours after bed you sound very close in height to me and yeah my low is in the 198-198.3 range depending on what I've been doing on the day we both are near enough around 6'6" to claim it for sure especially if you never really fall below 197 cm no one would probably be able to tell a difference between me and your height as there may be only a 1 cm in it at the most.

@ Slim 181 cm

I think 5'8" is very common for younger men.
Slim 181 cm said on 16/Jul/17
190 cm = ideal male height imo. but to look good at 190, you must be low body fat and have a large torso. Along with perfect proportions(etc not having t-Rex arms, or long torso/short legs.) Otherwise you'll look like a cheese string. But if perfect weight/proportions/body fat, you'll look like a god. While the top pro is shorter and thinner men will respect you out of fear of being bashed, another pro is a lot of hot women these days are 5'9 and 5'10, so you may have a chance with them. 😀🤝✌🏻Add to the list if you must.
Matt179 said on 16/Jul/17

Nike airmax 90 Give 1.35 Inches of REAL height.

Buy 1 inch foam shoe lift and jam it inside. it will give 2.35 Inches of height over your barefeet.

I Wouldnt go over 2.5 Inches of Height for total height of the shoes.

2.5 inch = Totally confortable and not noticeable.

@Jordan we are blessed its a real nice surprise when you find out you've managed to grow after at a age where pretty much everyone has stopped especially after you haven't grown in an while and thought you were done it makes you feel unique, don't get me wrong I was tall enough already just turned 25 a month ago and got measured two weeks after my 25th birthday on stadiometer at a easy 6'5" and the year before I also got the same 197-198cm measurements measured at my PDA and two months later and also at selection in the army, 197-198cm again a couple hours of being up, Jordan so are you really 198cm "low height" aka nightime your tall Its cliche but its not hard to see the argument "that kids nowerdays are so tall" when they see people like out about the prbolem those types seem to not notice the tall people and ignore the non-tall people, in clussion I forgot what I was going to.say .... haters gona hate

5'11 and 5'8 are in limbo,
Respectively 5'8 was very common for the old men but not the middle aged and young.(no offence big rob.)
And 5'11 was really tall for the old men but not the middle aged and young.
Fun fact: in the 18th century being 5'11 was the equivalent of being 6'2-3 today. very honest. perhaps more honest than honestslovene. Slovene, if you're reading this, how tall are you?

Hey Rob,

Quick Question about a measuring method I've been using since i was a kid. I Get a tape measure out and mark on the wall where certain heights are (Usually 5'9 to 5'11 for me) then stand next to and flatten my hair and hold a mirror up to see where i come up. Is this accurate at all? Obviously perception and placement of the mirror factors quite big but surely when its right in front of you it doesn't matter.

@Sally that happened legit 40 minutes from my town, I will stand by my opinion that the court system is corrupt because first of all he didn't even give them a truthful confession, so somebody allegedly wants to buy 4 pounds of marijuana for 8000$... guy has $800 and immediately changes his mind to buy a shut gun. Not to mention this guy has history of harassing many women on Facebook and stuff, also possiability of an additional 5th victim who's been missing for almost 2 months.. I know what they did and for what reason but I think they should sentence both his cousin and the dude to death freaking nut jobs.. this court broken. Idc what anyone says.

Hi Rob, always regarded myself as a decent 6ft guy and have recently taken measurements of my height over the day.

Absolute high/Morning: 183.8cm
Afternoon: 182.6cm
Evening: 182.4cm
Absolute low/Night: 182.0cm

Average height between absolute high and low is 182.9cm, which is exactly 6ft. What should I claim as my actual height? 6ft?

@Kouraosh, no, France has an average height of 5'8 to 5'9. Younger generations average 5'10-5'11 though.
G 5'11 said on 16/Jul/17
@Mark(5'9.5") There's always an ongoing debate on what height people should claim, some are against slight roundups even a half of inch. Truth is there will always be people close to your height who edge you by a little bit, or people you edge that claim the same. Usually in real life it's not a big deal a guy who's 5'11 in the mornings isn't going to be told by a guy who measured 5'11 in the noon, that "he is lying about his height" since at that time there will only be a small fraction between them. It's when someone adds 2 inches to their actual barefoot height, only then it will become a big deal imo. Like 5'10 saying 6 feet or 5'11 saying 6'1..

@ G 5'11: Over the last several days I have been watching as the horrific details of the tragic murders of four young men from Bucks County Pennsylvania unfolded on the national news. When I initially heard that the FBI was investigating their disappearances, I immediately prayed that they would be found in good condition. Sadly, that was not the case. My condolences go out to the victims' families, friends, and all of Bucks County Pennsylvania. I do feel the need to address your statement that "our system is corrupt they made him confess so he would avoid the death penalty." As a court reporter/stenographer, I have seen how the US judicial system functions first hand. What you describe as "corrupt" was actually a "plea bargain" or "plea agreement." A plea agreement is any agreement in a criminal case between the prosecutor and defendant whereby the defendant agrees to plead guilty to a particular charge in return for some concession from the prosecutor. In the Bucks County case that you are referring to, the prosecutor and the defendant, with the guidance of his defense attorney, agreed that the defendant would tell the authorities where he buried the four missing men in order to avoid the death penalty. Plea agreements are not corrupt. They serve a purpose. They happen on a daily basis in every circuit court in the United States of America. Thankfully, most plea agreements do not involve high-profile murder cases. Citizens of Bucks County benefited from this plea agreement because their tax dollars were not wasted paying sheriff's deputies and heavy-equipment operators overtime pay while they searched for the four men. The families of the missing men benefited because they were able to locate the remains of their loves ones. Obviously the defendant benefited because the prosecutor will not recommend the death penalty at the time of sentencing. I hope this was informative. Please remember that the vast majority of prosecutors and law-enforcement officers are honest and caring individuals who are trying to preserve the peace, keep us safe, and get home alive to their families.

@JackTheSmackHead really where did you read that? I read that the average inseam for a 5ft 11 guy is 32, and the average shoe size for a 5'11/6 footer is like between 10 or 11. It's weird because I'm 5'11 and my inseam is 32, my arm span however is 6'2.

5'11 is a weird height, it's not what you'd call tall like 6'0+, but it's not a very common height like 5'9 and 5'10.
So there's short, tall, average and then there's 5'11.

Thats because it is in Limbo. 5'8" is exactly the same, a true 5'8"does look short but its not average either. Anything close to average will be a bit of a lottery how you feel on a given day.

170-173= Below average
174-178= Average
178-180= Strong average
180-183 Cm = tall
183-185 = Strong Tall
188-195 = very tall

0.5 inch actually is noticable, maybe not so much to the average person, but for height-conscious people like us it is.

@Matt179, you say your morning height is 5'10.75 and your low 5'10, but you claim 5'11. Sure with your lifts you could be close to 6'1 when you first wake up, but unless you plan on gluing them to your feet you are still only 5'10. It's fine if you want to claim "almost 5'11 morning height".

Hey Rob, I got a question, and I want your opinion on it. This guy told me he wakes up at 6'0" and goes to sleep at 5'11.90". That's barely any loss for an entire day. Don't most people lose half an inch to a full inch throughout a day. I wake up at 6'0", maintain 5'11.5"/5'11.6" for most the day and go to sleep at 5'11.25"/5'11.3". Is this guy's case even remotely possible Rob?

@TheReel:I was 6'3.5" - 6'4" for two and a half years from 17 to 19.5 and gained an inch and a half out the blue now I'm 20 soon to be 21 and my low height is 6'6" most of the time or a tiny fraction below that at worst i think by the time I'm 25 i could be a wee bit taller again but not sure will have to let you know when I'm 25 haha, i think I definitely could be the man to grow a little more in his 20s potentially as my arm span is just shy of 6'9" and my inside leg is pretty long 37", guess we will see i think its pretty unusual how much and how late I've grown since i was only 6'1" at 16 years old and most blokes have less than an inch to grow by the time there 16 or so.
John said on 14/Jul/17
I am taller than you and I think that is an advantage we have, despite some minor uncomfortable situations. Of course most people get by our shoulder or under, but that may be their problem, not ours.
Recently a twelve year old boy was caught driving here in Australia for a long distance without having been noticed before because he was 6ft tall, just like me at same age. That reminded me that I used to be taken for an adult man from 10 on, and my same age friends used to comment about how they would like to be treated like adults.
I was happy then, but there was a time when I became much taller than my family and friends and that was embarrassing.
I am 20 now. Perhaps you are still very young, but I'm sure you are going to come to terms with your height and you are going to appreciate it eventually.
BTW I'm 6ft 8, I'm a military officer, I am a firefighter and lifesaver, and my height, size and muscular strength have been very useful in many different situations.

Do you really think people can measure 0.25 or 0.5 inches of height with their bare eyes? LOL They cant!

When people ask my height im not going to say 5foot10.5 This look tryhard. Since by 3 to 4pm im 5foot10.5 I Just say 5foot11.

I just loose 0.75 inches of height in a full day. Never more than that.

No people ever question this. Since im lean AND Muscular. Being lean is key to looking taller.

When i wear my black nike sneakers with a 1 inch foam lift, the top of my head reach 6foot0.90. Totally confortable and totally unoticeable.
Matt179 said on 14/Jul/17
Lol you people are funny.

Im exactly 179cm(5foot10.5) Miday around 3-4 pm afterwork.

Do you really think when people ask my height im going to go and say IM 5foot10.5 LOL this look tryhard, Just round up 0.5 inch too 5foot11.

No ones in their right mind will be able to tell a difference for 0.5 inch, but 1 inch is noticeable! Not 0.5 inch. And i wake up at 5foot10.75. Thats almost 5foot11. 0.25 inch no ones is able to measure with their eyes 0.25 inch.

I wouldnt round up for a full 1 inch, But for 0.5 inch its not noticeable.

Also with with my black sneakers and shoe lift the top of my head reach 6foot0.90 Inches, measure on the wall.

Guys I'm asking for your prayers for the families and friends of those effected, because recently there was a murder in my town 4 kids went missing and now they connected it to this lad Cosmo Dinardo. Turns out he lured them while they where buying marijuana and killed them one by one. Then burned and hurried their remains it's so messed up.. it's major headlines in news if you guys want to look it up. It's been an ongoing investigation and he just confessed. It's messed up, our system is corrupt they made him confess so he would avoid death penalty. He really needs to die the scum!

@Blazer: I agree with you on Matt179. His morning height isn't even 5'11. He's a textbook 5'10. I think for rounding purposes typically .5 or more at your lowest but some my size 1/3 may get away with it

Editor Rob: it could be the case, but also your discs may be better able to retain fluid.

There are some who really do lose 1.25 inches....their discs may not be able to retain fluids as well as others.

@JacktheSmackHead ah you from the UK what's your inseam? Yeah that shoe size is a bit small for your height, but it doesn't matter as people have all sorts of shoe sizes to height ratios. I wear a 32x34 in the states.

@G5'11 "yeah solid I wear a lift once in a blue moon only at parties when I wanna game extremely tall girls",

how do they react at your true height when you take off your lifts? 😂😈

@G 5'11
I didn't say he has a bad height, but he wears lifts to make other insecure.
He is 178 cm barefeet and 185 cm in shoes, did you read that?

@Brendan 179cm I know this questions are meant for G 5'11" but to answer your question yes, that is how I see it as well as most people I know. This claim that you're only 5'8" for example when you are even comfortably 0.25" over it is funny, this is an example of a legit 5'8.5", not a 5'8" person, that would be at around 5'7.75" at your low like Jenny for example.

Let Matt claim 5'11". He says he's 5'10.5" in the afternoon, which can be rounded up. There's no rule that says your true height is your night height. Your true height should be the height that you are for the majority of the day (afternoon for most people) and I'm sure Matt's 5'10.5" majority of the time.

If I am 6foot in the morning which is 183cm and my low Is 181 and I'm 19 and I grew from 181.8cm morning height to 183cm what height am I? In centimetres

Also my father and his brothers all grew to there full heights in there 20s do I have a chance for more height gains? They are all 6'1 and above

rob whenever i measure my height i always get between the values of 5 foot 8.3 to 5 foot 9. how can i get an accurate value. i use the facing the wall technique with an aerosol can and the back against the wall technique with a long cylinder shape tube/aerosol can but i still cant seem to get one fixed value. its always between 5 foot 8.3 and 5 foot 9.
Editor Rob: time of day and hydration levels might be one reason.

I'd pick one way of measuring and maybe do it on different walls or even a friends house, but a flat wall/floor are a must.

Carpets are not a great surface as you are likely to undermeasure...unless the carpet was very thin.
G 5'11 said on 12/Jul/17
@Canson yeah haha, and aye thanks man you too! Oh and yeah with my air maxes I can in the mornings, my legit 6 foot friend initially thought I was 6 feet until we stood back to back.
@Blazer he's an almost 5'11, guy he could technically claim 5'10.5 or " about 5'11" I mean yeah he isn't a legit 5'11 but neither am I, proportions can sometimes make you think sometimes taller or shorter depending.
@Brendan179cm to answer your question a legit 5'8 would be either someone who drops a bit under the mark or falls 5'8 flat at their lowest. A strong 5'8 would most likely be a little above the mark at their lowest ex:Rob. A guy who measures 5'8.5-.75"in the noon will probably be 5'8.25" or even 5'8 at their very low depending on circumstances. That would be a text book 5'8 guy.
If a guy wakes up at 5'8.75-5'9 on average they might end the day around 5'8.25ish" more or less. Of course some lose a little bit more height through the day then others.

Hi rob, no what I meant was if a 177 cm person was 3 cm below your hairline would that make you 6 ft? Because 179 cm starts at the hairline for a 185 cm guy?

169-181cm is the most common white male heights. Above is tall, under is short. In my opinion of course.
If anyone agrees, please copy and paste. 😂 ✌🏻 👍🏻
HonestSlovene said on 12/Jul/17
@blazer For a guy thats 178 cm at night and 180 cm in the morning, 179 cm is a decent enough claim. I agree that claiming 180 cm is too much, but so is 178 cm.
HonestSlovene said on 12/Jul/17
@179 cm Average height in France is about 5'9.5". Half an inch shorter than in the UK and half an inch taller than in Spain/Italy.

Hi Rob,how tall are your mum and dad?
Also how tall were both sets of Ur grandparent?
Editor Rob: my parents peaks were 5ft 10 and 5ft 5 (I don't know grandparents exact peaks).

This is them both at age 75 and 65, my Dad was just about 5ft 9 in 2010 Click Here.

I believe my Mother had about half inch more footwear than Jenny that day, not much different from Father's.

This is my Mother on 72nd birthday With me. For last few years her hip/knees are much worse, but she's not lost much in last 7 years.

Needs a stick and my arm when out and about.
Bobby said on 12/Jul/17
@Brendan 179cm, yeah, pretty much. I fall into a legit 5'10 category because I fall a quarter inch under at my low. Someone like Ben would fall into a strong 5'10 category because his low is exactly 5'10. In my personal opinion, a textbook of any height is when that person falls a quarter inch under at their low but they're still considered legit because they would measure that height most of the day.
Slim 181 cm said on 12/Jul/17
Matt179, I think you may only be a strong 5'10 in the evenings.
5'10.25(178.5) just normal.
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 12/Jul/17

Your "midday" height is probably only like an hour out of bed. I can see you being 5'10.5" an hour out of bed if 5'10" is your lowest. But someone who is 5'10" at their lowest shouldn't be 5'10.5" at afternoon. Most people already hit their lowest by afternoon.
Jack The Smackhead said on 12/Jul/17
@G 5'11: No i'm from the UK so it would be a US 9, but my feet are still small either way. My body proportions are very weird, as obviously I have size 8(9) feet, and I wear 30 length in jeans :/ I'm still happy with my height considering I could of stayed at 5'9.
Tallisto said on 12/Jul/17

G 5'11 said on 12/Jul/17
@Matt 179 nice im a weak 5'11, my proportions are that of a 6'2 guy, yeah solid I wear a lift once in a blue moon only at parties when I wanna game extremely tall girls haha. And yeah I'm pretty muscular too, I agree. I claim 5'11 people always guess me that or 6 feet.
