How tall was Aleister Crowley? Hemingway described him as a "a tall, gray, lantern-jawed man". If he said so, maybe Crowley was taller than him. Crowley seemed a pretty tall fellow, like 1.90 m: Click Here

I'm unfortunately not so familiar with Crowley, though over 6ft seems possible.

In this photo he could certainly pass for 220lbs.

From middle age onwards he was clearly at least 200lbs. As a young man, perusing various photographs of him from that time, he looked well-below that figure.

As tall-looking a six-footer as you are going to get. He would put many supposed six-footers to shame. He could easily be 6'0⅛, using the new listing system, or perhaps even 6'0¼.

220lbs looks extreme

A very solid 6fter, wouldn't rule out a fraction over this.

Hemingway was good friends with Gary Cooper. There are many pics of both men together and Cooper looks around 7-8 cms taller. So, 1`83 for Hemingway seems accurate

I don't know here's Hemingway with 6'1" listed John Huston, who was only 6 years younger, but to be fair I think Huston was at least 6'1.5".
