Easily between 1.87m-1.89m 6'1 and a half to 6'2 and a half

Morning: 1.89m or 6'2.5
Late morning or midday:1.885m 6'2 and change
Early Afternoon:1.88m or 6'2 flat
Evening 1.875m or a tad under 6'2.
Night usually his extreme low would be 1.87 or 6'1 and 2/3. A full 1.88m 6'2 from me

The problem is Malcolm, how do you judge what is "crazy" and punishable in times such as this? One side could say "how dare you put out vaccine misinformation?", the other side can say "how dare this man with a tallywhacker claim to be a woman". Who decides what is crazy and what you can't say? Some things called "misinformation" could be partly true depending on what sources you look at, and the man who wants to change sex may genuinely be in a lot of pain and feel better living life as a woman, who are we to judge? Unless it's obscenely bad, racist and violent or death threats etc, who is the authority on deciding? It tends to come down to your own political viewpoint and beliefs and Twitter was based in San Francisco, one of the most far-left cities in the world. I think free speech is very important for society, and am of the opinion that if you don't like what somebody is saying, ignore it. Twitter is hardly a true free speech platform now anyway, David Icke and Ye wouldn't have been banned if it was. Personally I'm very centrist and see a lot of stuff which is crazy to me on both sides of the political spectrum but it wouldn't be my place to want to cancel either side for their views, as I know that other people have different perceptions of the world and may genuinely believe what they say.

It's difficult to see Musk as 6'1 flat or lower with Jordan Peterson, if anything he looks nearer 6'2 with him, though how much Jordan loses with posture at times is questionable.
Ian Momoshiki said on 27/Dec/22
@Arch Stanton MBS maybe 6'1 with the spain prince, he also look near 2 inches shorter than prince charles, which pretty much settles it

Musk got 6'1,5
Malcolm Oliver said on 4/Dec/22
@Arch Stanton
Freedom of speech don’t mean freedom from consequences. And from what I’m seeing, Twitter now isn’t holding people accountable enough for some crazy things they’ve said. It’s only worsened.
The funny thing is that’s not even the half of what’s wrong with it now that Musk is in charge.

Strong 6’1 guy with a need for a strong ego check.
Arch Stanton said on 29/Nov/22
My first thought was that Musk's brother looked near 6'4 with Prince Charles but then I realised Charles is little over 5 ft 8 today. Kimbal looks a solid 6'3 guy I think.

Whatever you think about free speech, Musk has recently nuked a huge number of peedo accounts on Twitter, which people should be be very grateful for. But interesting how many celebrities are still attacking him and institutions are cancelling him after having done that..
Arch Stanton said on 23/Nov/22
Nah from what I've seen 6'1.5 is a good listing. He was looking noticeably taller than Jordan Peterson.
Matt Thomas logan said on 19/Nov/22
Lol no musk is like 5'11.5 🤣 🤣 or maybe 6'0" flat
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Jul/22
Yeah Kimbal is probably around 6ft3. More than an inch on Elon in photos. He’s a successful entrepreneur in his own right but seems more laid back and doesn’t take himself too seriously...operates on a different wavelength to Elon...they also have a sister Tosca whose a filmmaker....they all have that distinct jaw
Arch Stanton said on 11/Jul/22
In some photos Maye does look tall range and about 5 ft 8. Odd that she looks that short there though. I think Elon's brother is close to 6 ft 3.
Arch Stanton said on 11/Jul/22
Click Here Scroll down on the left, the family photo there. 5 ft 8 for his mother?? She's 7 or 8 inches shorter than Elon when wearing big boots. His sister Tosca Musk might be 5 ft 8-9.
Editor Rob
His Mother could be giving her 5ft 8 peak height and shrunk a bit, though in some photos from years ago I can believe this mark for her against Elon.

Whether Musk is 5’10” or 6’3” tall or what anyone else thinks of his height, I doubt being the richest man in the world that he doesn’t give a crap.

You're welcome Elon! :)
Eric W Tam said on 27/May/22
Honestly, doubt he's under 6', could be anywhere between 184-186 throughout the day and inflated that up an inch or two to 6'2 like most would. I'd say at best he stands at 186 nearly 187 in the morning, and at his shortest, Elon will be just the slightest of hairs beneath 185 at night.
Arch Stanton said on 26/May/22
Mathias Döpfner could even be a Peter Crouch 6 ft 7 see here with Obama : Click Here
Arch Stanton said on 26/May/22
Yeah somewhere in 230s range I think. He was looking easily this with Bolsonaro who must have dropped to nearer 6 ft nowdays, I think he was 6 ft 1 in his prime. Looked small recently with Mathias Döpfner of Welt though, who is listed at 6 ft 7 and genuinely looks it.

@6’4 Leprechaun:

More like a 4” difference in the picture, plus she is wearing high heels.

6'1.5" sounds honest though why is his 5'7" wife only 2.5 inches shorter? Musk could be under 6'.
Arch Stanton said on 13/Apr/22
He has a taller brother, saw the pic with his family recently at the Tesla factory launch.His brother Kimbal might be close to 6 ft 3.
vY said on 13/Apr/22
His head size definitely affects him to make him appear shorter I always thought he was 6 feet flat or something. Do you think his head height is 9 and 3 quarters?
Wehrmacht180 said on 5/Apr/22
184.2 cm
Arch Stanton said on 4/Apr/22
His height does vary a bit sometimes 187 seems a bit high, but others like in that Rogan and Peterson pic looks fair. Elon did a poll on Twitter asking if Twitter respected free speech enough, 70% out of 2 million off said no. A week later he forks out 2,888,000,000 odd on a 9.2% share of Twitter, three times as big as Jack's share. Hard to comprehend it's worth $30 billion odd!
IceCold said on 29/Mar/22
Physically he looks at most 6'1

Hi Rob

I think he has not lost any height yet, possibly he has even gained some height since he went into space :)

Yeah if he spent a couple of weeks on the ISS he'd be nudging 6ft 3.
Crypto139 said on 14/Mar/22
Some guy on Twitter replied to him showing Elon's height as 184cm and Elon didn't correct him....... I feel he is taller than 184 though myself. Probably bang on 6 foot 1?
Editor Rob
I believe Musk when he said the 6ft 1.5 mark, I can't see him ever as short as 184cm.
Autop5y said on 7/Mar/22
My friend just posted a pic of him with Elon Musk on Instagram, I know my friend is 6’0 flat and Elon looks about 1 cm shorter than him

Daniel said on 22/Sep/16
Rob curious question, how many inches would a 6'2" person eyesight level stare at on a measuring tape?
Editor Rob
5ft 9-9.5 range, anywhere amongst that would cover 95% of 6ft 2 men.

-speaking as someone who, in the morning, is knocking right on the 6'2" door,, 5'9" is definitely below eye level if I break out a tape measurer. I'd say 5'10"-5'10.5" depending on posture and head position because I have a shelf in my place that I have measured at exactly 5'10.5" high, and when I stand square on with it in the morning I am able to actually see the top surface of the shelf without any trickery or craning my neck -almost exactly flush with the surface In other words, I can look clear over the head of a 5'10" guy if I'm standing behind him in a crowd. At 5'11" I'd have to go up on my toes a little bit to see over the top of his head if we're both in equal footwear. I'd say upper eye level / lower brow to top of head distance is about 3.5" most times. But even late at night with a compressed spine I'd say looking over 5'9" if you're over 6'1" is no issue.

That said...Elon DOES wear a lot of pretty substantially heeled dress shoes so I might be hesitant to put him over 6'1" - he may be an example of the barely 6'0" man who wants that extra edge for the visuals of it when he does photo ops. Then again, if Richard Branson is 5'11" for real and Elon's coming in easily a good deal taller than him despite Branson having shoes on and Musk not...he might get close to 6'1" barefoot. I'd say 6'0.5" most likely if you caught him with his pants down and demanded that he stand for measurement right away at 3 PM, maybe 6'1" in the morning.

He doesn't have a short man's body but I can see why many would be surprised he was near 6'2, I would have thought of him as a 5'11-6 ft sort of guy if I didn't know.
Arch Stanton said on 12/Jun/21
Short man's body?? Doesn't look like it to me, he just looks like a heavy set guy to me. He's got to weigh a good 230 lbs I'd have thought, 16 stone range. I don't know where he gets his energy and mental focus from, he doesn't seem like a guy who spends much time exercising.

Speaking of the super rich, Rob any chance of adding Saudi Prince Mohammed bin Salman, he's a pretty prominent figure in Asia. Looks quite a big heavyset guy, with the 6'5 Spanish prince Click Here With some of the Asian prime ministers he can give the illusion of a 6'3 250 pound type guy but is probably around 6 ft seeing him with Trump Click Here , Obama and Prince Charles.
Arch Stanton said on 30/Jan/21
186 is possible I think. The world GDP as of 2019 was around $87 trillion, yet only about $37 trillion is actually in circulation. Elon is personally worth about 200 billion dollars which is one fifth of a trillion. So he's worth about 0.23% of the total world's GDP lol, Tesla is worth around $835 billion so about 0.96% of the total GDP. Insane figures, and the amazing thing is that he doesn't seem interested in wealth, it's just a means to an end, put life on Mars!
johnnysidgursson said on 18/Jan/21
Musk's height it's very confusing, like Donald Trump's height, both use "gain height" shoes, with big lifts,

I will say between 6 and 6'1 for Elon.

The Kanye picture can be explained by a low angle and Kanye being nearer to the camera.

Elon is probably 6'1" - 6'1.5" range.

Looked only 4 to 5 inches taller than Kayne West in recent photo. Maybe Kayne West had on big sneakers. But musk looked 6'0" next to 5'8" Kayne West in that picture.
Big T said on 1/Jul/20
Pictured with Kanye West today on Kanye’s twitter, both wearing Yeezys...why does he barely look 5’11? Kanye’s eyes are easily above his mouth and Kanye almost has more relaxed posture....Elon is standing further from the camera but that also creates the illusion of him being on higher ground. Almost impossible to see him within 2” of the estimate in that photo?

Kitbit said on 28/May/20
Rob, I’m just curious have you seen his footwear? I think he looks 6’2” because he wears bulky black and thick sneakers. Also the red carpet dress shoes he wears look extra thick and custom built. Don’t you think he needs a downgrade? Say 6’1” or 6’1.25” at most

Garrett188 said on 9/Feb/18
I've looked into this guy's height quite a bit and it has become increasingly clear to me that he is probably closer to 6'0.5''/ 184cm and wears 1 inch lifts to appear about 6'1.5'' / 187cm compared to others in more average footwear. Evidence of this is quite abundant. I've actually had quite a hard time finding photos where he looks like he's wearing shoes that do not appear to have lifts or odd bulges in the lace area. This is no coincidence. It is also not too atypical as I know several people 6 foot+ who wear lifts to get an extra inch or so in.

You can see here a very bulgy appearance to his shoe, making the top of his foot look very steeply angled and oddly voluminous:
Click Here

Then in this photo he has his foot angled upwards in a way that certainly would be uncomfortable without a wedge inside his shoe:
Click Here

His knees appear very high off the ground while his proportions of his femur and upper body look like a guy much closer to 6 foot.

And in images like this next to Erdogan of Turkey, he appears to have similar proportions but somehow he is lifted above the ground in a way that looks more like a 6 foot guy standing on a step then a 6'2 range guy:
Click Here

Another photo where he is of similar proportions to someone who looks to me somewhere around the 5'11-6'0 range yet looks like he's standing on top of a platform:
Click Here
This is also a guy who got hair plugs and denies it. As some mention on here, a very appearance-aware guy. I struggled to find any photos where he's wearing anything but a bulgy dress shoe/boot with pants long enough to cover the top. Anecdotally, my best friend is about 6 feet and has told me on multiple occasions that he wishes he was 6'2''. Remember, all a 6'0.5'' guy needs to look 6'1.5'' is an inch extra in his shoe. What do you guys think?

Assuming Talulah Riley is like 5'11-6'0 here, he still holds his own well... He does have a decent heel lift... but still, he'd have to be at least 6'0-6'1 barefoot. He looks like he has big feet.
Editor Rob
6ft 1.5 for Musk is probably a good fit, he certainly was no shorter than someone like Obama and taller than Trump.

Quite frankly, I don't think this guy is taller than 6ft... he probably wears lifts. He made a hair transplant and lied about it so it wouldn't be surprising he lies about his height as well. He's very smart and he's a businessman, he's very aware of the importance of appearance in the industry.

To me he looks 6'1'' when standing with Obama, Trump

Also looks 6'1'' when standing with 6'5'' Kevin Systrom (tall dude next to musk) Click Here

That being said I know someone that studied with him and they described him as bigger than me, I am 6'1'' but with a very slender frame (long legs and small torso)
Matthew Robinson said on 4/Jun/17
He can look about 185 cm to me, perhaps he can stretch just over it on measuring. I'll guess him at 186.
Dan said on 5/May/17
I don't think Musk is over 6 feet, frankly. He looks tall, but he also wears very thick shoes, probably with lifts in them.
Kaneff 6'0.25" said on 5/May/17
6'1.25"/186cm is what he looks, no more no less. Probably got measured 6'1.5" early in the day and rounded up.
Alex said on 24/Apr/17
Does somebody know his shoe size?
Peter said on 2/Mar/17
I think he's around 6 feet. 1 inch shorter than Obama and wears lifs so he could be even shorter like 5'11. That would still make him a tall guy.
Slothee said on 4/Feb/17
6'1.5" tops in my opinion.
Animus said on 30/Dec/16
He looks 6ft2 (or close to it) next to Leonardo DicCaprio in the following video: Click Here

There is a caveat, though, since DiCaprio sometimes wears thin footwear and Musk has taken a liking to boots and other thick shoes. He still has to be at least 6ft1½.

Rob, how likely is 6ft1 flat?

That's the current average guess...
Editor Rob
I think he can look over 6ft 1, but he may fall a bit under 6ft 2.
Rubio said on 3/Oct/16
Wow I never thought he was 6 ft 2. He looks pretty 6'.25 6'.75 to me.. maybe 6'1 in the morning if lucky
Tom said on 29/Sep/16
A time ago Elon was listed 5'11 everywhere and I always thought he was taller. But 6'2 seems too much for him, I usually thought he looked around 6'0.5. I think he is 184 cm. That's what a looks next to Obama. And by the way, he wears lifts, lots of people have already noticed this. He could be 6'2 in shoes, but definitely nit barefoot in my opinion. He's a 184 guy who wears some small lifts in his dress shoes which puts him at 6'2.

A friend of mine works at Space X and has met him personally. One of the first things he said is people don't realize how big he is. Steve put him at 6'3, which would mean a likely height of 6'1-6'2. He said his persona in combination with his size creates and intimidating presence
Jon said on 27/Sep/16
6ft if he's lucky, shorter than Barack Obama
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Sep/16
Really 230lbs range? I'd have thought more 210lbs
Daniel said on 22/Sep/16
Rob curious question, how many inches would a 6'2" person eyesight level stare at on a measuring tape?
Editor Rob
5ft 9-9.5 range, anywhere amongst that would cover 95% of 6ft 2 men.
HonestSlovene said on 22/Sep/16
6'2 sounds about right, looks 6'1.5"-6'1.75" next to John Oliver though. Oliver is at the mid 5'11 range at least.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Sep/16
Rob, might have been measured at 6ft2 mid-morning?
Editor Rob
yeah it's not impossible he drops a bit under 6ft 2.

At least he's no Richard Branson though, claiming 6ft 2 with a serious face.
Daniel said on 21/Sep/16
Rob this is very confusing but does 6'2 tower over 5'11, where would 5'11 see from a 6'2 person?
Editor Rob
usually the 5ft 11 guy would be looking into the mouth of a 6ft 2 fella.
Animus said on 21/Sep/16
What do you reckon he weighs, Rob?
Editor Rob
230's maybe
Thomas6ft1 said on 21/Sep/16
HEY Rob, Are you sure he's really 6'2" barefoot and not 6'1" flat? The 6'2" claim could be in shoes.
Editor Rob
I wouldn't have guessed a flat 6ft 1, but I can see a 6ft 1.5 argument for him...the fact he says 'definitely' 6ft 2 means he must have measured near it, of course he might have been in a shoe.
A2Z said on 20/Sep/16
Funny enough this guy use to get listed 181cm on every site and now he's 6'2" all of a sudden? maybe wearing lifts, surgery or a sudden growth spurt lol.
Editor Rob
maybe just somebody guessed him wrong and other sites used the dodgy height?

Has happened a lot over the last 15 years.
MD said on 19/Sep/16
With 5'11.5" John Oliver:

ly said on 19/Sep/16
Maybe hes 6ft2 with his transplanted hair but no way over 6ft1.5 without it,he barely edges Obama.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Sep/16
Does look close to this
James said on 19/Sep/16
Yes, looked to have a solid inch on Obama.
Editor Rob
I think it is arguable Musk can look 6ft 1.5 as well, but he seems not to be a ramrod postured guy.
