Comment on the Height of John Mayer

J said on 23/Nov/15
Next to David Letterman the two looked the same height when standing next to each other. You can see that at the end of his "American Pie" cover peformance from a few months ago.

He always looks huge. Honestly minimum 189.5

John Mayer height: 6ft 2.75in (190 cm)
Darren510 said on 13/Mar/15
He could be a strong 6'2.
Jakob said on 6/Mar/15
Not convinced he's a strong 6'3" barefoot, I think maybe 6'2 1/2" but in shoes he'd be around that mark for sure.

I think 6ft 3 is fine for John. He is atleast the same height as Bob Saget, if not a bit taller ( go to 9:37 of the video)

I need a reply, Rob. His height goes up and down like crazy. I guess I'm not that good at judging someone's height.
[Editor Rob: anywhere in 6ft 2-3 is arguable, at times he really can look 6ft 2 other times I think this guy is near his claim. Maybe that photo is close up and reduced height?]
Joe said on 4/Jan/15
@Arch Stanton: Nope,I'm not that Joe, and I don't have any height issues.
Arch Stanton said on 1/Jan/15
A lot of women seem to think John's a sleazeball though, LOL I think him and Tiger Woods together might be too much for some ladies hehe!!
Arch Stanton said on 1/Jan/15
Joe says on 24/Dec/14
6'1.5" flat.

Is this the same Joe who says Clint Eastwood was max 6'2.5? Seems like he has big height issues with the taller guys LOL. 6'2.5 is arguable but he's clearly not only 6'2" or under.
Arch Stanton said on 1/Jan/15
Rob can you remove the ? from the end of Daughter? Great photo for height comparison. Keith's shoes looking a bit sus here has to be said. Amazed at the size of John's head compared to Tigers! If think it's pretty clear he's obviously around this.
Darren510 said on 31/Dec/14
Wow I'm a bit surprised to see his so tall. I figured him for maybe 5'11, but I never really took a good look at him until now.
Joe said on 30/Dec/14
This looks like a less confusing shot of the same pic you gave:

Click Here

But still manages to look 6'3".
Joe said on 30/Dec/14
Looks like he's pretty much what he claims. He can look 6'2" range with posture though.
Arch Stanton said on 26/Dec/14
Rob can you add a photo and songs like "Your Body is a Wonderland", "Gravity", "Why Georgia", "Slow Dancing In a Burning Room", "Heartbreak Warfare". "Something like Olivia", "Paper Doll", "Say" and "Daughters? I think he looks pretty near what he claims. This site's Brad who's genuinely very tall said Mayer was looking near 6'5 in boots.
Joe said on 26/Dec/14
Here is the site which you should check out, Rob.

Click Here

I think he's in the 6'2" range. He has a horrible posture.
[Editor Rob: his height can vary a bit there, I'm not sure if he'd be 6ft 2 flat, although 6ft 2.5 is possible]
Joe said on 24/Dec/14
6'1.5" flat.
juan said on 17/Dec/14
@joe he went to berklee for a short period of time
Joe said on 17/Dec/14
I'm tired judging his height.He has a horrible posture.
Joe said on 14/Dec/14
@Jim: The best thing about him is that he's self taught guitarist.
Joe said on 14/Dec/14
@juan: good observation.
juan said on 13/Dec/14
@joe justin timberlake just might wear lifts like many others Click Here Click Here Click Here you have to recognize something is up with maroon 5 singer (adam levine) height
Jim said on 12/Dec/14
John is a legit 6'3". I'm 6'4" and he walked right by me after his set at ACL in 2007 where I was working backstage. He was barely shorter than me. I was surprised at how tall he was as I usually tower people. He's a tall guy as well. Hell of a guitarist too.
Joe said on 12/Dec/14
@juan: Well, he does give me an impression of 6'2.5" but I don't expect him to be a flat 6'2". Since, your claims are true, I won't do any further negotiations. He can look 6'2 range. Here he is with Justin Timberlake(5'11.5")

Click Here

Plus, there's not even a single pic of him where he looks 6'3".
juan said on 11/Dec/14
@joe true story
Joe said on 11/Dec/14
@Juan: really??
juan said on 9/Dec/14
i met him once and ask him he said 6 2
MM said on 23/Nov/14
You have Bob Saget listed as 6'3.5, so John Mayer is at least 6'3. Click Here
bobby h said on 31/Oct/14
im from his home town(nh).(but now live in new London) and have seen him several times ,,, he is a legit 6'3 In shoes! he is prolly 6 2 barefoot.. but since your site says theses are barefoot estimates, your hight on mayer is incorrect.
Joe said on 20/Jul/14
@ MM: they don't have same eye level, if you look carefully, John is looking up to him.
Joe said on 1/Jul/14
@ MM: You can clearly see that John Mayer has a camera advantage, interviews are made in such a way that John looks taller, I read it somewhere.
MM said on 29/Jun/14
I think John's height is legit. Willie Geist is apparently 6'4 right? Never mind the hair, look at their eyes...they're almost at equal eye level Click Here
184.9 on a bad day said on 24/Jun/14
Just looks him with Jimmy Kimmel, Justin Timberlake and Adam Levine. Looks the same as Kutcher, therefore he is atleast 1.89. And why Rob listed him at 1.91(maybe john pay for), Rob know what he does , he's a specialist in height.
Joe said on 20/Jun/14
@ 184.9
" 6'3 is near of the truth", what are you saying is baseless, on what basis you think he's 6'3, there are a lot of people who work with him and claim is not taller than 6'2.
184.9 on a bad day said on 15/Jun/14
The dude looks huge, i think 6 ft 3 is near of the truth
Joe said on 14/Jun/14
Her is coming to my town on 20th September, if I get an opportunity, I will definitely see how tall he is, I'm 6'1.
strong said on 15/Apr/14
Agian I come back with another proof, I think John Mayer should be downgraded to 6'2.5(189 cm), here he is with 6'2.5 Ashton Kutcher, Ashton is closer to camera so he's looking taller but if they were at same distance from the camera, they could have been identical plus they have equal shoulders, assuming equal heads,
John Mayer shouldn't be more than 6'2.5

Click Here
James Richardson said on 5/Feb/14
I've met him, he is 189-190 cm, I'm 6'3.75 which is equivalent to 192.5 cm, but I think he gives me a look of being an inch shorter than me at maximum, its hair I which makes him come across as 191,hair can really fool people with their heights,thats why many sites also claim that he's 6'4,but I think he is 6'2.5-6'2.75 or 189-190.
He's not 191 cm, I can say that because I'm closer to his height and I make it out.Many 5'10 ers or 6 footers will easily believe he's 6'3 because of the angle which are eyes set to see a thing higher than us.
MM said on 31/Jan/14
I think John's height is legit. Maybe those boots were designed to look like lifts but are normal. Here he is wearing standard shoes with Gary Clark Jr. who's about the same height and he's wearing a hat. Throughout the performance to the end when they hug, they seem like the same height Click Here
Arch Stanton said on 24/Jan/14
Rob what's your opinion on the boots? I'm not sure they're lifts Bob, I think it's just the design of the boots which are high and make it look like he's wearing big lifts. For sure though that sort of design boot would be the type to have a 3 inch lift or something in them though.
[Editor Rob: you could fit lifts in them, but I don't know the actual make of them.]
Bob said on 23/Jan/14
Even at 6'3" John Mayer feels the need to wear shoe lifts when on TV. Here he is in a recent interview with his girl friend Katy Perry, who is also wearing heals. Look at how chunky his footwear is, you can see the lifts in his shoes by how elevated the laces are.
MD said on 1/Nov/13
For reference.

George said on 30/Oct/13
Met him in London a few days ago...191cm with ease...a very tall man...Looks 6ft3 in the evening...that sort of you can tell with the stratocaster next to his body hes a very tall guy..
Arch Stanton said on 22/Oct/13
He looks it. Intimidating, and I don't mean just his height. A good looking and multi-talented guy "who knows he is", such confidence and talent combined are a lethal mix.
Roger said on 7/May/13
I was cutting some particle board to use on my kitchen renovation last week and I needed a piece that was exactly 6'3" long. I didn't have a tape measure handy so I just grabbed John Mayer and
got him to lay down while I marked my next cut.
Turns out the piece fits perfectly, so I can confirm his height is 6'3" as shown on here.

As listed. 6 feet 5 in boots with ease.
thomas said on 23/Mar/13
I am a desk clerk a the front desk , I saw him yestarday he played at the local amphiheater and when he checked in he was taller than me (185) cm and what people seing is 190 cm is true no more no less (6,03) true height.
rene said on 23/Aug/12
No matter how tall he is, he is super hot! I'd be in love with him even if he was 5'0
qwerty said on 6/Oct/07
Looks 6'2" to me. Without the slouch, maybe 6'2.5".
OutBenchThis said on 23/Aug/07
Cheers Glenn.
Viper said on 22/Aug/07
Mayer seems to be all over the place height wise. Though he does seem to wear some flimsy shoes a lot of the time. Kutcher could have a big footwear advantange in that picture.
glenn said on 22/Aug/07
he is so nice,ill have him do that.otherwise,thats not a sensible request.thanks for respecting my opinion.i respect yours.ill give you an update one day.
OutBenchThis said on 22/Aug/07
Glenn, next time you bump into him with a camera handy in Manhattan, get him to stand up straight so we can not only go on your word but have photo proof that he's 192cm (6'3.5") :P
..I'm sticking with 189cm (6'2.5")for this guy based on several photos and video.
glenn said on 21/Aug/07
you guys a funny.those are pics,and pics can be decieving.and i interperet the ashton pic differently.when you actually bump into mayer on the streets of manhattan as i do,and ask him his height,he is the 6-3.5 he claims.
Anonymous said on 21/Aug/07
No way he is 6'3". Ashton Kutcher is taller than him.
Based on this pic he is no more than 6'1"

OutBenchThis said on 5/Aug/07
The photos with Braff are further indication that Mayer ain't a full 6'3"..I'd believe 189cm but not 191cm..
bommel said on 27/Jul/07
dunno if it's the angle, but doesn't look 6'3" standing just behind Zach Braff, who is an even 6' footer

Anthony said on 23/Jul/07
Glenn, out of sheer cuiroisty, is Mayer's head as big in reality as it looks photo. In some photos is looks gargantuan.
PJ said on 17/Jul/07
Absolutely inaccurate. I've seen him working out in an NYC gym multiple times. In barefeet in the lockerroom, he MIGHT be 6'1. He is celebrity-stretching his height big time.
OutBenchThis said on 14/May/07
There's a photo with Mayer and Gylenhaal and lance Armstrong..mayer looks closer to a 6'2.5" than a 'big 6'3" ' as some on here continue to suggest.
Aaron said on 13/May/07
Jay jay, out of curiousity, how tall are you? I think it's important because if you're on the shorter side, it would be difficult for you to distinguish between 6'2, 6'3, 6'4. All of which are possibilities for John Mayer.
jay jay said on 7/Mar/07
i am getting repetitive, sorry. but i saw mayer again and this third time verified it for me at least that he is at the very least 6 foot 3. it was like 60 degrees here in manhattan, and he was just wearing chucks and a tee. no big boots. he's a tall kind of stocky dude.
Viper said on 21/Feb/07
Hes not 6-4, that is for sure. I could see how his frame could pull it off though.
jay jay said on 21/Feb/07
yesterday, through a friend, i found out that i live in the same neighborhood as mayer. anyways, the other day i saw him in a pharmacy line and this evening i saw him on 6th ave near houston. he was wearing a pair of converse and is over 6 foot 3.
Snapper G said on 20/Feb/07
Definitely not looking close to 6-3 in those pics. I thought he looked very close to Letterman in heighth, putting more like 6-1.5 which is what he appears in those pics. He looks to be about Jack Whites height which is about 6-1 and change, maybe touching 6-2.
Jake W. said on 12/Feb/07
I do not believe he is 6'4". 6'3" may be pretty accurate though.
jay jay said on 12/Feb/07
i saw him in a pharmacy in soho last week. he is over 6 foot 3. i will say though, he has big hair, so that could make him look larger. but he looks like a legit 6 foot 4, and kind of big.
OutBenchThis said on 1/Feb/07
I think Mayer's large head makes him look taller than he is. I'd say 6'2" - 6'2.5" (189cm) but not a true 191cm.
Glenn said on 6/Jan/07
I know the exact block where he lives.its in Greenwich Village NYC.
Glenn said on 6/Jan/07
I know exactly where he lives.
candylips said on 5/Jan/07
hmm...where do you live, Glenn? i'd like to 'bump' into him too ;) ;) ;)
Pigeon said on 31/Dec/06
You guys rule...
Glenn said on 12/Dec/06
I said he looks 6-4,not that he is.about 4 inches smaller than Krist.
Natalie said on 12/Dec/06
He can't possibly be as tall as all of the jealousy surrounding his height... but I saw his show in Montreal a few years ago and he did make all of the french people look kind of tiny. But french people are tiny.
Glenn said on 8/Dec/06
I bump into him in the street alot.he lives here.he looks an insane 6-4 actually.and stocky.he is at least 6-3.I cant imagine he wears lifts.
Viper652 said on 7/Dec/06
Letterman is 6-1 now.
Glenn said on 7/Dec/06
Again.he is 6-3 or 6-3.5.I think he told me the latter.
Amadeus said on 7/Dec/06
This guy looks more like 6'1" and change. He was on Letterman two weeks ago and Dave (6'2") went over after the song and he was clearly slightly taller than Jon. Anybody got a shot of him and Jack white in a police lineup.
Anthony said on 23/Nov/06
Exactly. If he straightens up, he looks he'd be 6'3 or more.
Glenn said on 23/Nov/06
He is hunching in my pics.
Anthony said on 23/Nov/06
I'll admit that in Glenn's pictures he looks 6'2-ish at best. But if you look at most other pics, he's definitely at least 6'3. I noticed his posture isn't exactly great (a factor in why he looks shorter next to Glenn), but when you see him next to small to average sized people he's 6'3 with ease.
Viper652 said on 20/Nov/06
Yeah, he doesnt look anywhere close to 6-3 in the pictures.
Anthony said on 19/Nov/06
Looks 6'3.5 to me.
Glenn said on 3/Nov/06
He told me 6-3.5.
Leung said on 2/Nov/06
Mayer was on Sunrise this morning and he was similar in height to Kochie so 63 sounds about right.
Jordan said on 2/Nov/06
John looks 6'2-6'3.5 to me, but since he is slouching he could be taller. I would think 6'2 1/2 in the first pic since he is slouching so much.
J. said on 2/Nov/06
All the press for Mayer during his first album emphasized his height, which was usually described as 6'3", sometimes 6'4". In fact, he actually filled out a fact sheet for some teenybopper magazine during that time and he listed his height as 6'3" so he is consistent with that figure. He has that stringy, lanky build.
Glenn said on 1/Nov/06
Hes slouching in the pics.
Viper652 said on 1/Nov/06
"It's not like 6-3 is freakishly tall, not sure what you're talking about."

True, though people think you are 6-4 or even 6-5 half the time!!
Glenn said on 1/Nov/06
I wouldve agree with 6-4.
Ryan said on 31/Oct/06
I met John after one of his shows in Connecticut, and without a shadow of a doubt, he's 6'3.5 my friends. so before you leave a comment, meet the guy first!
Anonymous said on 31/Oct/06
It's not like 6-3 is freakishly tall, not sure what you're talking about... My brother is 6-6, thats boardering on freakishly tall and he doesn't seem to cop any jokes. Stand tall- girls love it, its hot
Glenn said on 20/Sep/06
At least 6-3.
Viper652 said on 19/Sep/06
The odd thing is he doesnt look 6-3 with Glenn.

I'm surprised he's that tall! He looks much shorter on his albums..... Wow how much weight did this poor guy gain? He was so thin before! He blew up!
Glenn said on 23/Jan/06
he's tall!
CoolJ said on 23/Jan/06
Not sure he's a full 6'3... but he's got a massive head, thats for sure.

Mayer and glenn pic. Don't know how much john is leaning there.
peter pappas said on 13/Jul/05
yah i met hi last year he is 6-2
Mr. R said on 23/Apr/05
When Mayer burst on the scene a couple years ago, he was listed at 6-4. Now that he is not as hot, he is admitting 6-3. I saw him on Oscar night a few years ago, and I guessed him to be 6-3. It just goes to prove - the hotter your act is, the taller you will become!

Mr. R says on 28/Apr/05
This is right on the money. I saw him as he left Elton Johns' party on Oscar night, and he walked right past me. He is 6-3 on the nose. When he first hit it big with the Wonderland ditty, they said he was 6-4. Now that he has cooled off, he is back to 6-3 where he belongs.

Anonymous says on 26/Apr/05
i would say he is more than 6'3. i saw him on Conan once and they were pretty much eye to eye. hey may even be a tad bit taller than 6'4.
