Bobby at 177cm is barely above average.

@C-mo
I think of 168-169cm as being the start of short rather than 172cm.

Rob, just one last thing:I noticed that if I stand with my feet at my shoulder width I measure a hair more than with my feet together, feeling that this way I can stretch better my legs: since that, should I use to measure myself with my feet a bit apart?
Editor Rob
if you want another mm on your height, then stand with feet 6-8 inches apart!

@Jdbubbz

Nah, I don't consider myself above average because I want to make my height seem glorious or anything of that nature. I'm just going based off observation and experience as living in one of the most diverse cities in the world: Toronto. Also, considering I measure or am close to 178cm in the afternoon, I feel as though 5'10 is on the higher point of average in Toronto. Tall average, I'd think. I just disagreed with C-Mo saying that 5'9 and 5'11.25 belong in the same category. I mean, be honest, out of the two, which do you think is going to be called tall versus average? The guy who measures 5'11.25, right? My statement wasn't meant to attack C-Mo or his height, we just had a disagreement on height categories. And to be fair, I even consider a man of C-Mo's stature to be slightly above the average height too. I only say this because I see a lot of 5'7-5'8 guys here in Toronto. I'm taller than a good share of people at the supermarket and on campus I feel between average and above average, it's a little weird sometimes. I think 5'10 is average on my campus but sometimes it can be above average depending on the time of day.

In my opinion speaking for the younger generation in the UK. (90’s kids) 6”3 is the new tall. I’m 6”0.5 and im rarely referred to as tall, I don’t feel tall, I was never considered “tall” in school or at uni. im only slighly taller than most my friends who mostly sit in the 5”9-5”11 range with a few shorter ones and taller ones outside that bracket. Only elder relatives refer to me as “tall”. I don’t even view 6”1 as tall. I’d say 6”2 is quite tall. 6”3 is a solid tall.

When i was in Graz Austria i could never tell whats the avg i have seen both short and tall Austrians, older people were usually shorter and i saw one taller one. Half of people were immigrants i edged out and towered so idk what avg id give them. 180cm estimate for young and 177cm for all ages

@c-mo I think @Bobby meant to say that he feels more often above average than just average and for @Connor Simpson he feels more often tall than just above average, so at the end of the day that feeling is going to count really. @Jdubbz I agree it depends. You live in an area where your height feels very tall rather than freakish. If you moved to Bobby’s or Connor’s area you’d feel taller I say.

Tbh, I don’t really think any height should be grouped with each other. Because even an inch can make quite a big difference between a lot of heights.

Greg said on 14/Aug/19
@C-mo I think you’re misunderstanding what Bobby and Connor are trying to say or maybe it was miscommunicated, whatever the reason is I’ll break it down to you. So first of to what you said about Greeks averaging 5’10, that is not true I’m sure their are tall Greek men but their average is probably more 5’8-5’9 I’ll say 5’8.5 just for the sake of this argument. What part of Germany do you live in again ? I feel like you are basing this around your town and while to be fair I will agree with you some parts of Germany 5’10 can seem the average for Young men or at least 5’9.5 I’ve seen tall people in Switzerland and in Austria plus some parts of Germany even the elder generation. Now I’m about an inch and change taller then you, I would put your height in the average catagory. Maybe sometimes you would feel below average in certain places as sometimes I even feel about average or barely above it in Europe but sometimes I will feel above it just depends. 5’7 is short 5’8 isn’t really that short although I’ve had some 5’8 friends feel like they where short at a bar before I felt comfortably above average I mean this was in America but generally I will feel taller in my town than in Europe. Now here’s another thing I disagree with you about 6’0.5 being a minimum to be tall just lol at that? So how is Connor above average he’s perfectly tall at around 80 something percentile in the UK. You’ll be taller than most Men you meet not counting taller countries where the average is say 5’11 so he will be above average there. As for Bobby I think you thought he was attacking you and got super defensive relax. He was trying to act better than you he’s not taller than you by much. I noticed the taller posters here have more strict standards about what is tall so the taller they are the taller you would have to be to be categorized by them. I wouldn’t group 5’9-5’11 as average and nobody is saying 5’9 is a bad height it’s not bad. 5’10 and 5’11 are above average in most places with the exception of a few tall Countries. 5’8 isn’t short would you call a guy like Rob short? No he holds up well with most celebs I think you need to chill out bro forreal.

@K.A
You're not going to get an accurate measurement unless you use a aerosol can or a thick hard book. Those two methods are the best alternatives for a stadiometer. Using only a ruler isn't enough.
Redwing said on 14/Aug/19
K.A 188@

Hey man, yeah bro that’s quite the trip so you too grew like 7 cm since 2014; height system here in NZ is quite inaccurate too as I’ve measured 175 cm before and etc. Which is strange as I’m a fraction shorter than my stepdad who’s you’re 1.88 cm tall. This was this year as well it blew my mind, and doesn’t add up since I was nearly 7 cm shorter than a 194 cm man. Do you look younger than you’re age? I think that might help too with growing huh
Luca said on 14/Aug/19
Rob, if busting a gut and just standing tall I measure exactly the same, it means that I have an impeccable posture?
I remember you that I made posture exercises for different months, which made me gain about 7-8 mm of height
Editor Rob
It shows you have a very good posture.

Someone like Tom Cruise when he poses is probably near his measured height in many photos.
Jdubbz said on 13/Aug/19
@c-mo: I'd place you both in same category. I’d say 5’9-5’10 is average, with upper average beginning at 179cm/5’10.5 night height. That’s just my opinion, but yeah 5’7 and 5’9 definitely aren’t in the same group. I don’t think Bobby meant to offend you. We all like to view our heights in the best way possible. Bobby considers himself to be above average at 177cm (I don’t think he is, but that’s just based on my area and I don’t mean to insult him), and I think of my height as very tall but not freakish at all. Not everyone sees things that way, so there’s bound to be some disagreement when it comes to categorizing heights.

As for your height chart, I mostly agree though I’d call 186cm - 192cm tall (I think of 192-193cm as a buffer zone) and 194-200cm very tall. Also I’d insert a tallish or above average category between 181cm and 186cm.
Bobby 178cm said on 13/Aug/19
@C-Mo

Actually, given your low as being around a solid 175 and myself a solid 177 at a low, I am 2cm taller than you. Almost an inch taller. My height is in a different category to yours. Anyway, my comment wasn't meant to attack you, I just don't agree with categorizing 5'9 and 5'11 in the same category as each other. A 181cm man is going to be seen as tallish whereas a 175 man will feel average height. That's 6cm apart, not in the same category. If you had said something like 180 to 183 or something, it'd make more sense. A 6cm difference is almost 3 inches or about 2.5 inches.

I understand what you're saying, but by your logic, I am considerably closer to 180cm, I wake up at 179cm and in shoes I am 181+ and in boots, I am 182cm. Also, I consider myself a 177/178 guy. What I'm getting at is that 5'10 can be called tallish, especially if it's a big 5'10, like 5'10.5.

And I'm sorry to say, C-Mo, but I've been to Greece, and I can tell you for a fact, that the average height for young Greeks is not 5'10. I even asked Rob for his opinion and he doubts it too. From what I noticed, I'd say a strong 5'8 is average, maybe a legit 5'9.
Connor Simpson said on 13/Aug/19
@c-mo I know i said i wasnt going to message you again but first i need to get something else off my chest, you need to think before what you type, you keep forgetting that 5'10 is not the average height everywhere and besides thats only for the young generation and in some parts of the world the average for younger people is even lower than that, 5'10 may be the average in some parts of Germany but its not that for the most part and 5'10 looks more slightly above average than just bang on average, you need your eyes testing maybe you should have gone to Specsavers? 😂 just an idea.

Also WRONG Greeks dont average at 5'10 its 5'9.5, dont believe me? take a look at this link, Click Here do some research of the average heights for different countries and see for yourself im not telling you any more because im a lot smarter than you. 😀

Ive just looked up the global average height for men and women again and they said it is more like 159.5cm for women and 171cm for men so you're wrong again lol, i was wrong too but at least i can actually admit that im not always right.

So yeah a lot of men are under 5'9 and even 5'8 but obviously youre too thick to understand that, and the fact that you keep repeating the same s**t proves my point, even after seeing what ive posted you'll probably still argue the toss with me, because you dont like it when you're wrong and that someone else is right. ☺️

And if you can actually be bothered to read some of my messages you'd know that im not from Germany where you live, i live in the UK so the average here is 5'9 so 6'0 is quite tall in our country, 6'0 really is 3 inches above average here and i could even argue that the average might be less than that because of how little the amount of 5'9 guys is, it probably is more like 5'8 in the UK so therefore 6'0 is indeed a tall height, 5'11.5 could even be the start of tall because its 3.5 inches taller than that.

Oh yeah i hate to break it to you but you're no where near 180cm not even close to it. Youre 178.3cm out of bed and in the afternoon you're what like 5'9 3/8ths? thats 176.2cm and in the evening youre a little above 175cm so im assuming youre 175.1 or 175.2cm at your low, you're no where near 180cm.

Almost 180cm is more like 179-179.5cm you are just about 5cm shorter so youre more 175ish than nearly 180cm, sorry but you cant argue with facts.

Also you attack Bobby about his opinions of what he thinks of certain heights on whats tall, average and short yet you say 6'0 isnt tall but 6'0.5 is? lol 😂😂😂 its only a half an inch difference, they would look virtually the same in comparison, what you say is so inconsistent it's laughable. Im even laughing now as im writing this hahaha.

But whatever im done with you now its like talking to a brick wall, im going to do something proactive now and enjoy life, you keep on being a s**t human being and a loser, after all its all youre good at it, go and hang out with your good bald friend Arthur and have a sleepover at his cave and you can both go and look for a cure for your hair losses, see ya. 😀👋

Alright, that's a city not too far away and similar in size to mine, with 25% more inhabitants though. What do you think the global average height is there? What about younger generations 18-30 yo? Here I think it's at most 175-176 for global. Even though sometimes the younger average could seem near enough 5'10 (expecially in University), I still regularly see young guys in 168-173 range.

My father used to be 5ft 10.25, mother 5ft 1. Grandparents on fathers side 5ft 11 and 5ft 6 (uncles: 6ft and 5ft 10.75), whilst on mothers side 5ft 8.25 and 5ft 1.25 (uncle: 5ft 6). I measure 5ft 9.75, my brother 5ft 7.75.

Would you say I ended up taller than expected?

How tall are your parents/family members?
Editor Rob
I think you probably ended up a bit above the figure a Doctor may have predicted.

I know my Father was 5ft 10 peak (although he has always maintained his army measured height of 5ft 9.75), mother around 5ft 5 peak.

Sometimes you scratch your head at children heights.

For instance here is my Father beside a couple: Click Here. The lady beside my Father was 5ft 4 and her husband on far left was 5ft 5-5.5 range, yet they had 4 sons about 5ft 10 to 6ft range.

tallish 184cm
average 178cm
shortish 172cm
short 169cm
very short 166cm

Hi Rob, I’m 6”0.5 and a half and my uncle is 5”10.5 but he always looks taller than me in photos even though im clearly 2 inches taller than him. Why is this? I must admit I do slouch slightly but not a lot and he has a straight posture, he’s also bald so it helps him look taller because people see the top of his head instead of his forehead
Editor Rob
That seems bizarre, you must really have terrible stances in photos to be able to look shorter.

Maybe work a bit on posture or remember to stand taller if you want to look taller, though some people have a natural tendency to slouch in photos.

yes 5’11 is more desirable than 5‘9 but the average height is around 5’10 or so for europe and the western world (without elderly men ) so take 1 inch above and below and that makes 5‘9 – 5’11 the average range . also 5‘9 is not a bad height either ....5’11 is of course a lot better and one of the best heights imo but 5‘9 is still a decent height and both are equally far from the mean average height . you might argue that nowdays for certain places the average is closer to 5’11 than 5‘9 ...ok ....but still when we count all european countries and not only the taller ones then 5’10 seems about right

and you do know that I am closer to 180cm than to 170cm right ? I wake at 178.3cm and I am 177.5cm so (basically only a hair under 5’10) after being awake for 30 mins to 1 hour or so . and even in the evening I am a little above 175cm so how can you put me in the same category with 170cm ? even 174cm is not in the same category as 170cm ....why ? ....because 174cm is 3-4cm below average while 170cm is 7-8cm below average . it is not the same . a 175cm is pretty medium height and will look fairly average while 170cm is rather short and will not look average except sometimes .it is not THAT short but it is definitely on the shorter side . the difference between 170cm and 175cm is higher than between 175cm and 180cm because at 175cm you are only a bit below the mean but at 170cm you are strongly below the mean

it is actually very outrageous of you to put yourself in the above average category along with 181cm men but putting 175cm and even 176cm men in the same category with 170cm men despite you being only a bit taller than 175cm men let alone 176


@Connor Simpson

1. the average height for greeks is 5’10 not 5‘8-5‘9

2. 6‘0 is 2 inches above average not 3-4 inches

3. 6‘0 is not tall . it is above average but not solid tall . you need to be a t least 6‘0.5 at the bare minimum to be tall and even then you are on the very start of being solid tall because actuall tall is 185cm + . 182-183cm is above average but not tall . it is similar to 173-174cm ...173-174cm is below average and maybe slightly shortish (especially 173cm) but not „short“ just like how 182-183cm (especially 182cm) is above average and tallish but not „tall“ . if you cal 6‘0 tall then you have to call 5‘8 short . some of you guys are a bit deluded thinking 5‘8 is average.. no offense . average height is 177-178cm at night
ajax509 said on 12/Aug/19
Last year, I bumped into a man (around 25-30y/o) who stood well over 7 feet. I know for sure because he was walking with a 5ft 8 range guy who didn't come up to his shoulder level.
Literally, folk around wiped their eyes. 👀
Probably one of the tallest persons in Europe!

And yeah... when I observe the city I find 6ft 7+ men every day. Then again, I've never made it across the pond.

@Jddubz I beg to differ maybe that’s just your gym, I don’t know any 6’7 guys off of the top of my head. 6’7 is a very rare height. There used to be a guy at my gym who’s around your height maybe a bit taller and he hasn’t showed up in a while. I did see a 6’8-6’9 guy once at my gym it was a Young kid too but that was the first time I ever saw that. Otherwise it would be once a year at an airport or something I’ll see a 6’7-6’8 guy. While not impossible but a 6’7 guy can go almost years without seeing someone their height or taller at least in America when I say their height I mean 6’6ish-6’7 not like 6’4-5 those heights while rare are a bit more common than the latter. Maybe in Europe it’s different as the men there are taller than average certainty in a Dutch or Nordic Country. For instance, I’m visiting Switzerland and Austria and I’ve seen a couple 6’4-6’6 guys but only a handful this is more than i see back in the United States.

Ah ok. But I guess the afro also makes you look taller too.
I personally don't think I have really good tall/lanky proportions or anything, despite me being now at my all-time (adult life of course) low of 93 kg, but I still got guessed today for the third time above 2 meters (lol, at 192.5-8 cm, although I often am around 193.1 when i come back from a 1-1.5 hour walk 5 hours out of bed). Of course those weren't the most deeply thought guesses ever, nor they were given by the most "competent" guessers, but still, dam... (Btw I was also casually guessed at around 2 meters like 3 other times, but yeah, lol)

In which Italian city do you live? I am in Rimini.

Dear Rob, I ascertained that my extreme low height is basically a hair over 188,7 cm, which I reached twice or max 3 times in over a year.
Since that what height should I claim to be if someone asks to me?
Editor Rob
Still say 189cm. Even saying 190cm won't raise eyebrows.

188cm would be too low a claim I feel, you'd get far more people raising their eyebrows if you say that.
Prog King said on 11/Aug/19
@c-mo, i agree with this, but i would bump it up to 185 cm when taking into account young white men. At 6'0 i definetely feel in that transition zone a good number of times. With lifts i get up to 6'1 and definetly feel tall walking around, not the tallest in the room, but still tall enough for daily life

I think when measuring yes it does add a bit because the ruler does not rest on the scalp. But with a stadiometer that can compress the hair and touch the scalp then the measurement should be more precise.

@Pov I agree the Dutch are insanely tall every other guy i saw whilst in Amsterdam was over 6’0, in Austria/Bavaria guys are also really tall I felt barely average at 5’10.5 179cm, sometimes above other times very low if not average. There where many 6 footers I think you would have to be a minimum of 6’0 to feel above average and 6’1-6’2 to feel tall.

@C-Mo

I wouldn't class 175 and 181 in the same category honestly. A good solid 5'11 is going to be seen as much more desirable a height to be as opposed to 5'9 even if the difference is 2 inches. On that same note, I would classify 170-175 as medium, maybe 176 at a push. I would classify 177 to 181 as above average and 182 up to 186 as tall.

I remember very well my height in 2014 summer because it was during the fifa world cup.
I was 16 going to 17 years, I measured 181cm before school ended and 3 months after in september I measure 186cm barefoot and weighed 5 kg more.
Then from 17 to 19 I added full inch measuring 188.4 at noon.
I was always tallish in my early things but really grew more in my late teens. Between i am not American, i am an Italian citizen as i explained in my previous post.

I saw something very interesting today in an article. The seven countries with the tallest people

Czech Republic, Latvia, Estonia, Belgium, Serbia, Denmark, Netherlands (back to front). So I guess what someone said earlier about the Netherlands having that is the truth

---------------

Yes and thats what I have said many times here on General. I work in Belgium and out of the neighbouring countries they are the tallest compared to The Netherlands.

Although Flanders is taller than Wallonia. I guessed their height as 5'10.5" in Flanders and 5'9.5" in Wallonia. The women average 5'5.5"-5'6".
Canson said on 11/Aug/19
@Jdubbz: yea in my case 6’7” would be too tall. Doorways mainly but also tighter fits in vehicles and headroom. I think once you get over 6’2” it gets more expensive. Even a very long legged 6’2” guy may have to shop at a big and tall and have a hard time if he’s built like I am at 6’4”

@Importer 720’s look sick honestly, they won’t be hard to walk in and nah they give as much of the boost because most shoes with flexible heels don’t make you walk shorter, even after wear and tear they will probably give you about 1.5 inches which is more than Shox I might get a pair they look comfortable.

If you want a decent boost of height, they are comfortable sneakers.

@Jddubz you see what I mean though? 👀😂 now another thing that I find funny is Arthur wants to come at me for that yet let’s not forget he was the one who got banned before for calling a user a manlet. This isn’t the misc teen section of Bodybuilding.com like this is celeb heights for Christ sake. So why is it not okay for Arthur to use that term but not Ajax. Not that I care because it’s an ironic/moronic statement at that point but seriously #Double standards if I could locate Big G in the streets of New York i would let him loose here to sort anybody and everybody out.

Did hair have any affect on your measurement? It didn't with me. One point I had long hair, almost an afro but not quite, and at one point was almost bald, but no difference between the two measurements.

That is a tall height, And a cool mix of ethnic groups that you are tbh. How tall were you tho at the age of 18? I was sorta average standing at 180 cm. Now I’m 3 inches taller, Are you an US citizen?

@Cmillz - He does look very tall and is called very tall by most even in Sweden. He's currently shooting season 2 of a tv show and said he was guessed as 6'5" a few days ago by the crew. He has a v-shape body with very broad shoulders which might help him look very tall.

Here's a still from the show where he's in a crowd from season 1(he's on the far left): Click Here

Here's a video of him in that crowd: Click Here

And here's a picture which shows you he's a broad guy and pretty muscular: Click Here

As a bonus here's my friend who's an actual 6'4.5"-6'4.75" guy (that guy is heading into that extremely tall range with boots on). He might be just about a cm, or a few mm under a cm, taller than @Canson: Click Here

height chart for men . I am VERY sure that it is realistic give or take a bit

all heights are supposed to be evening heights and centimeters and it is meant to be for caucasian males between ages 20 - 50 or so :


the heights where I didnt write anything about are meant to be "borderline/transition heights" between the both categories that are above / below them


220 + : big giant . at this height there is a big chance that your height is known in your country or even worldwide . "even" at 218cm the dutch giant is known . needless to say that at such extreme heights there will be a handful of people on the whole world that will be around your height

218 - 219 :

211 - 217 : "small" (lol) giant

209 - 210 :

202 - 208 : huge or unusually tall

200 - 201 :

193 - 199 : very tall

191 - 192 :

184 - 190 : tall

182 - 183 :

175 - 181 : Medium

173 - 174 :

166 - 172 : short

164 - 165 :

158 - 163 : very short

156 - 157 :

149 - 155 : extremely short

147 - 148 : borderline dwarf

below 147 : dwarfism


----

the transition zones of each 2cm are good becuase they allow you make proper categories where you transition smoothly without the problem of jumping from one category into another without having a buffer zone .
Jdubbz said on 10/Aug/19
@Greg: 6’7 isn’t as rare as you think, and at that point each additional inch becomes exponentially rarer. At my gym alone I usually see a guy my height, a 6’7 range guy and a guy who has me by 2-3 inches. These are the only people of that size I regularly see, but a 6’7 guy wouldn’t have to go years to see someone his height or taller.
Connor Simpson said on 10/Aug/19
@Sakz Of course 6'0 is tall theres no doubt about it, it's like 3-4 inches above the average height, at least 3 inches.

@c-mo whilst I was at university, I did my work placement year in the Netherlands in a city called Breda (Near Rotterdam) I was there for 14 months. I am from the UK and I’m 184cm barefoot most of the day, I lived in a student accommodation with 3 dutch flatmates and 1 Bulgarian one, all of my dutch flatmates were taller than me, I asked how tall they were and they all gave heights ranging from 186cm-194. Even when attending meetings and walking in the street, I was slightly below average. If you have never been there it is hard to believe the average height of a country is so much more than the rest of the world , but I suggest you visit, Amsterdam won’t really give you a good idea as it’s full of tourists and multicultural. Try going Rotterdam, Breda, Eidenhoven, Utrecht, and you will understand they are a nation of giants!
Jdubbz said on 10/Aug/19
@Canson: We probably disagree on this point, but I’d rather be too tall (within reason) than not tall enough and try to compensate via artificial means. I’d choose 6’7 over anything under 6’2 and 6’8 over
Lell said on 10/Aug/19
In my opinion I'd call 6'2" tall.

6'0" is definitely above average and you will be one of the taller ones most of the time, but it's not tall enough to be considered "The tall guy" really.

My opinion of tall is when you kind of stand out more, get more comments and usually is the tallest in the room, which I guess happens at 6'2" more often. 6'/6'1" is more tallish.

In other countries I would definitely say that 180 cm+ is tall. I traveled recently and I was legit one of the tallest around tourists (I'm between 179-80 cm) which was a huge difference compared to where I come from where most are my height.

So if you're short: Move to another country, simple XD

Jug said on 9/Aug/19
Rob,

If my elevator boots make me 6'5, how tall would I appear to most people--6'4? Do we generally take into consideration that everyone around us is already wearing about an inch over their barefoot height? I guess typical footwear makes most men three quarters of an inch to an inch taller.
Editor Rob
Yes, you definitely would look that kind of 6ft 4 range to most people, even taller at times from people who aren't aware of a genuine 6ft 4.

Jdubbz said on 9/Aug/19
@cmillzz: yeah I find it hard to believe as well. Perhaps Ben is underestimating others and the “6’2” guys he’s seeing are really like 6’4 or 6’5. Otherwise it makes no sense, since 6’2 is just tall in the US and probably the equivalent of 6’0-6’1 in Sweden. That’s a far cry from very tall.

I've never imagined that Czech Republic and Belgium are in the top 7 tallest countries. I thought it would've been the Scandinavian countries like Norway, Sweden or Finland. Surprised that none of the three are on the list.
LDS said on 9/Aug/19
@Nik. That's probably about right to be fair as I think it works out at just over 5 foot 5 for 10% percentile. That height and below always comes across as very small for a guy.

It really is all semantics though to be honest. I don't personally but you could technically argue that 5 foot 10 for a guy is "tall". 5 foot 10 is more than the average height which is literally the definition of "tall" (heights based on the UK). However nobody is going to look at a guy who's 5 foot 10 and say "wow he's tall".
Ellis said on 9/Aug/19
@Canson: I meant wouldn't it, I was trying to imply that 6'7 is the height that would be taller than every single girl with heels, not 5'9 lmao, just in case you didn't get it, my bad.
@Christian 6'5 3/8: Yeah I'm starting to agree with you, I would definitely take 6'7 over 5'9, for 6'8 that is kinda a toss up, but I would still probably go with 6'8. Idk, maybe if 5'9 was higher to like 6'2, because I would probably take 6'10 over 5'9 tbch.
mrfunnyguy said on 9/Aug/19
@cmillzz I agree with you that 6'2 isn't "very tall", but merely "tall". Since most people wouldn't even call 6'2 "very tall" in the US, 6'4 can't be called "very tall" in Sweden, because the difference in average height between the US and Sweden is about two inches I think. I assume "very tall" in the US starts at 6'3, which means that "very tall" in Sweden must be 6'5 and taller.

@MYSELF
My measurements are all before i grew my hair. When i kept my hair short and trim . But is been over a almost a year ever since i measured myself.
Straightout out of bed i am 190.1 and my absolute lowest i have ever measured after 8 hours of work is usually 187.6 .I have a wardrobe that measures exactly 192.5 so i often marked my height on it ,so am few milimeters over 6ft2 during the day at 188.4 .
I did atletica(track and field sports) while growing up as teenager so maybe that helped in growing, i am in my early twenties now though.

I am actually a Mulatto (half Italian and Nigerian) so i got the nice afro. ...but i just happen to look like an afro Brazilian or Dominican lol..anyways as I have said before i don't even consider myself very tall but at times i can really stand out i just feel like 6ft2 is the begining of "standing out " is like
a "bridge height " if you have a nice proportion like in my case broad shoulders and long wingspan (My wingspan is 201cm which is equivalent to Michael Phelps's wingspan)
So in my opinion proportion play a big role in what we perceive as tall.

Csimpson6ft said on 4/Aug/19
What grade do you guys think my height is? Id give it a B+ i feel 6'0 is a fairly good height but it's nothing special, an A+ for me would be 6'1 or 6'2, definitely 6'2.

--------------

I agree with 6' being B+ but I would make a range say :

6'-6'1 B+
6'1'-6'2" A
6'2"-6'3" A+

And then going back so

6'3-6'4" A
6'4-6'5" B+

So maybe 6'5-6'6" would be a B and also 5'11"-6'.

6'6-6'7" and 5'10-5'11" being C+ and the last heights I personally wouldn't mind being.

@LDS

I agree - the 90% percentile in Denmark is 190 cm for men (which is probably 189 at normal low since most people are measured earlier in the day), and I really don't think you stand out in terms of height until you hit that mark.
I myself measured 184 cm last time I went to the doctor, but I claim 183 since that's my normal low, and that corresponds to the 68-69 % percentile here in Denmark.
Greg said on 9/Aug/19
@Christian aren’t you still a towering giant at 6’7? You could walk around for years and not find anyone taller than you. I think the jump from 6’7-6’8 isn’t much both are very tall heights.

@Bobby 178cm:

And that makes perfect sense since you’re accustomed to being 5’10. 6’6 would be a totally different experience. For me I’d rather stay my current height than drop down to 5’10, cause it would obviously be very weird for me to drop 8 inches. For a 6’2 guy (right in between those heights), I imagine it’s a much harder choice.

Canson said on 8/Aug/19
@CSimpson: he sorta towered me Connor. But not extremely. I think a best case is 204 range. Not sure about a full 205. He easily had 4” on me and I had on sneaks and so did he. I would say even footwear. It could’ve been maybe a bit over 4” which would put him at 6’8.5-.75 perhaps or maybe just 6’8.25 but he was relatively honest either way because even at the lower, he would still measure 6’9” in the AM and I could easily see someone that size lose an inch. He at least said 6’8/6’9 and not 6’9”
Ellis said on 8/Aug/19
@Jdubbz: Lol, and yeah I completely agree, I think that tall starts at 6'1-6'2, 6'2-3 is already solidly tall. I did a height chart down below, although it might be biased because I'm extremely tall, I thought it to be correct. I remember being each height, and frankly it was not too long ago that I was those heights, I remember being 14 at 5'9 and most of my friends were taller than me by an inch or two, and now I'm taller than every childhood friend I know except for one that had a monster growth spurt like me, and is an inch taller than me. But he was always like 4 inches taller than me until about 15-16 when I started catching up, and now it is an inch difference.
@Canson: Altered footwear would suck big time lmao, and wouldn't be cool to be taller than every single girl wearing high heels lol, even the 'very tall' ones that are like 5'9 at most and claim 5'11.
Canson said on 8/Aug/19
@Ellis: yea that’s about right. I’d probably be roughly 7cm shorter than you are. That’s probably just a little more than an inch between you too. The guy that was in the store probably has you by 3-4 cm. He may have been at least a very strong 6’8” or best weak 6’9”. Youre about 200.66 at a flat 6’7”

Lol you're one to talk Arthur, what about you? Remember when you used to keep picking on Bobby and winding him up, you did this with other posters too and you enjoyed doing it because you love making them angry and get a reaction out of them, you get a kick out that don't you?

What you say is inconsistent, seriously you're such a hypocrite you don't mean any of it, you're also a sad insecure person, that's why you do that, it's not their fault that you're a s*** human being, aww what's wrong? you're still worried about everyone calling you out on your height? What happened to your 5'10.5 claim?

I heard you are saying you are barely that height now so that just proves my point, that's why you're not posting any proof of your height on here because deep down you know you're not as tall as you say you are, I wouldn't be surprised if you're only in the 5'9 range, why don't you do us all a favor and do something proactive that will benefit you like finding that cure for your hair loss and do some research on the Greek average height because it's not 6'0, that's incorrect 6'0 is not average anywhere except for in the Netherlands. You must not have any brain cells, thats one of the reasons that explains why you're so dumb.

Oh yeah next time think before you speak ok? Otherwise don't bother posting comments again, besides it's not like you have any fans on here is it?

Your opinion isn’t needed here.
Greg said on 8/Aug/19
@Canson yeah I mean that’s why I say tallish, anything at least an inch more than average I think can fit so 5’10.5 is 1.5 inches above the 5’9 average. 5’11 of course is tallish as it’s around 2 inches over average if not a bit more. I mean some people would consider 5’11.5+ as tall but also from 6’4 it would be a little different but yeah I usually look 5’11 to others most people guess me at 5’11/6’0 my proportions help and yeah lifts are usually too much for me I could wear a thick pair of boots and be 6’0 in them so I could appear a legit 5’11 there and yeah you could probably pull off 6’5-6’6 with lifts and right footwear.

Bobby 178cm said on 7/Aug/19
@Canson

Honestly, I'd remain 5'10 if I had a choice of 6'6 as that's over the ideal height, in my preferences, but if you gave me a choice of 6'4 over 5'10, it'd be a bit of a toss up but I'd select to be 6'4, and if you brought the choice down to 6'3, the choice gets easier. Generally though, I think a solid 6'0 is an all-around good height to be.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 7/Aug/19
@Canson
Choosing between 5'9" and 6'7" is difficult for me too, but I'd choose 6'7". If it was between 6'8" and 5'9" though, I'll go with 5'9". I'd rather be average than a towering giant.

LDS said on 7/Aug/19
What counts as tall for me I would say is probably heights of round about 90% percentile and up. In the UK 90% percentile would give you roughly 5'7 1/2 for women and just under 6 foot 1 for men apparently. There's a whole variety of things that can change your perception on this though with your own height being a major one as pointed out by Christian.

I also believe a lot of people think they're taller than they actually are too which doesn't help with perception of height and what's tall etc.

@Christian: I disagree only because I don’t consider someone under my eye level to be tall. I realize that’s very biased, and I understand that most people don’t feel the same way. I wouldn’t set the threshold as high as 6’2 or 6’3 though, more like 6’1-6’2.

@Christian Yes, also the taller people get, the taller their perceived 'ideal' height tends to be.
Ellis said on 7/Aug/19
@Canson: That's pretty cool, to have someone ask that person his height. Like I said before, I don't really get asked my height that much, maybe once or twice a day not in confrontations. However, if someone starts talking to me then they will almost always ask the question. You would probably stand a bit above my eyebrows, and I'm probably about an inch shorter than that guy.

Also, I'm pretty bad at height inferences in person, but I'm really good when I see pictures. I met two guys that claimed 6'8, very big guys, I felt quite a bit shorter, then we took a picture, and the difference was about 3 quarters of an inch. I was the same height as one of em, but 3 quarters shorter than the other one. It's funny how they could barely dunk and I was doing windmills in slow motion. The difference between the taller one was really small, definitely less than an inch.

@Christian it’s all subjective for me based on American standards. 5’8-5’9 low average 5’10.5-5’11.5 tallish, 6’0-6’1 legit tall, 6’1-6’2 pretty tall, 6’3-6’4 very tall anything over 6’4 you’re standout tall, 6’6+ extremely tall. Most would agree with me.

@Canson Maybe i’ve Not looked much into bolt but I think he could have lost some height.

@Importer Bruh you’re taller than me, if you really don’t like your height trade with me 😏 but you’d probably hate that. 6’0 would be nice and 6’2 is the tallest I wouldn’t mind being.
Myself said on 7/Aug/19
@K.A
Yeah my parents are similar in height to yours too. My father had 185 as his official height until like maybe his mid to late 50s; now he has 183 cm. I don't know if he ever was even 183 or how tall exactly he is now in reality (his posture is terrible and I rarely see him). My mother on the other hand has always claimed 168-169 cm, and recently at almost 60 yo i measured her at 167-167.5 at night. I'm kinda lucky to be 192.5-8 cm.

Btw recently I met a guy that was probably your height or 1-2 cm max taller and he claimed 196 cm, lol.


And hmm...10 cm means he is above your eye level...I don't feel like I really tower in that situation (I would call it partial towering).
Canson said on 7/Aug/19
@Greg: I would say for me and I’m not as conservative as others in that aspect that I see that height as getting tall, that it is a slightly above average height. Other taller guys don’t see it but I have a friend who is a solid 6’0” at a low and he actually looks tall in person. But with the right footwear and proportions you could pull off a taller look. 5’11 is easy to look at your size if you threw in maybe an orthotic and some very thick footwear. If you’re at a low 5’10 1/4-3/8 that’s similar to how I could pull off 6‘6 in shoes and look a legit 6’5” to some if I’m in a pair of thick boots in an orthotic. I would consider tall more like 5’11.5 and above. Some day 6’0” but a well proportioned 5’11.5 with good posture especially in a good pair of sneaks like Jordan’s can look 6’0” without trying.

Rob, are you even reading the comments you approve? Greg has been getting really out of hand lately. These aren't comments, they are delusional rants. He is talking about measuring d*cks for God's sake!
Editor Rob
Yeah, it is stretching the bounds of respect (from a few folk).

I would hope they can reign in some of their comments and remember to try to keep things pg.

Think it’s all in your head. Most people in the real world aren’t very height aware at all.

Csimpson6ft said on 7/Aug/19
@Canson So he was like 6'8.5 or something? How did you feel next to someone that tall? It's pretty rare to see guys of that height, if someone was 4.5-5 inches taller than me i feel they somewhat tower over me but when someone is 6 or 8 inches taller than me thats when i really start to feel short, a few months ago in the bus station there was this one time when i saw this burly bald guy with a beard he was definitely the tallest guy that ive stood next to so far he had to be 6'10.5 at least 6'10, the top of his shoulder was right at the middle of my forehead, it seemed like he was somewhere in the 6'10 range thats what i estimate him at, the guy was huge and i felt like a shrimp stood next to him lol.
Canson said on 7/Aug/19
@Greg: I think for Bolt that it may be due to his scoliosis. He may actually be as low as 192 now though based on how he looks with both Kobe and Barkley, as well as Peyton Manning and Michael Jordan
Greg said on 7/Aug/19
@cmillzz higher chance of Clooney being a flat 5’10 than Pitt 5’10.25 or Gosling 5’11.5.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 7/Aug/19
@Ellis
I've noticed that most tall guys here (except for Canson and I) set a higher standard when considering someone tall. Jdubbz I think doesn't consider anyone under 6'2" or 6'3" as tall, and a former poster named Jason 193cm had a similar opinion as well. My definition of tall is anything above 6'0", but most tall guys here seem to disagree.
Canson said on 6/Aug/19
@Mark Warren: I agree! And very difficult. I’d take 5’9 over 6’7” honestly. And 6’6 vs 5’10 major tossup. It’s only 2” taller than I am now but that’s a major inconvenience to be that tall as I see friends that are and deal with it. Lol if I were 5’10” I could at least look taller if I altered footwear. Hell guys do it all the time
Canson said on 6/Aug/19
@Ellis: I would take 5’9” over 6’7”. I throw some lifts on and I can look taller. Or wear thick footwear all the time. At 6’7” I would have to try to wear very very flat shoes just to avoid doorways
Sakz said on 6/Aug/19
@Csimpson6ft I think people usually base their 'perfect height' on what looks good aesthetically and ideal for day to day life (so not too tall or short). I also don't believe in a perfect height but rather an ideal range, which for me is anything from 5'11-6'2 if you want to be tall without standing out.

@c-mo I understand what you mean. As for lankiness yeah it will be more obvious the taller you are, and bad posture associated with very tall heights also makes it very apparent.
Canson said on 6/Aug/19
@Jdubbz: The wife and I went to the grocery store yesterday and I ran into a guy that from a distance I figured to be at least 6’11 maybe 7’. Turns out getting closer to him that he’s only probably 6’8-6’9 tops when I walked right past him. He had very long hair and very good posture matching mine which is impressive for someone that tall. Normally it takes a person that type of height to have to adjust their posture stand straight for me to believe them. I’d hear someone say they are 6’7” and they look max 6’5-6’6” but then stand straight and it’s different. And then heard someone ask and he said “about 6’8/6’9”. Not a bad estimate just eyeballing pretty much. I just figured I was right around his eyebrows or maybe a bit under so gave him the extra little bit. Either way an honest claim

@Guest66 I wasn’t whining relax pin head, I stand my ground just like other posters do when someone comes at them so easy there sally. Ain’t nobody being a doctor or anything you’re just speaking out of line sounds like you’re the toxic one it’s funny how everyone wants to gang up on me just because you dislike me, it doesn’t give you the right but then again I don’t take you or any other losers attempting to attack me seriously get lost.
K.A 188 ! said on 6/Aug/19
I begin to notice that more and more people are becoming height awared this days just the other day when I was in a line waiting to pay for what I bought, I noticed that a lot of people were staring at me maybe it is my curly afro hair that makes me look taller. But the thing is despite being solid tall I see myself as normal and it's because I probably subconsciously compare myself to people who are noticeably taller than me usually the 193+ which I see once or twice a week depending where I go.

But nevertheless I can not complain considering my parents height 181 peak for my dad and 170 for my mum, I am even lucky to be over 6foot. I know someone whose parents have the exact same height with my dad and mum yet he is 5ft11 max.
Greg said on 6/Aug/19
@Canson I would say my height and up is tallish, definetly not legit tall which I think starts after 6’0 but I’ve been referred to as “tall or kind of tall” although I don’t consider myself as so 5’10-5’11 is tallish or above average range both mean the same thing. C-mo is average in Germany maybe on the lower end because Germans tend to be tall at times if he was in America he’d be bang on average.

@Jddubz shame if it was a dick measuring contest Ajax and I both know he’d lose ;) so luckily for him it’s not 😂🤷🏻‍♂️ and he’s the one trying to be a smart ass and call me a manlet I wasn’t trying to one up him joke was on him I’m taller thats what makes the statement even more ironic.
ajax509 said on 6/Aug/19
Holder is for me the abbreviation of world record holder. I've never heard "he's the world title holder" 😂
by the way, Powell never had the honor of becoming world champion.

In any case, Yohan Blake is a joke. Claiming 185cm when he's clearly shorter than Serena Williams Click Here

Antonio55 said on 3/Aug/19
The average Olympic 100m sprinter is around 183cm (Bolt (195cm) is the exception, but former holders are Gay (180cm), Blake (177cm), Powell (190cm), Gatlin (185cm)
Antonio55 said on 5/Aug/19
@Ajax509 I didn't say that Blake or Gay set the world record in the 100m (my opening was on Olympic sprinters) but if we want to get into details Gay, Blake, Powell and Gatlin hold the 4 best times in 100m history after Bolt's WR of 9.58s

185cmJeff said on 6/Aug/19
Hello Rob, I’ve found when I went to the hospital on my 17 birthday (now just turned 22) and I was measured then at 180.5cm now I am 185cm roughly at a low and getting very close to 187cm in the morning. My question is I’ve grown roughly 4cm-4.5cm is that common after 17? my physio said I need to strengthen my core back muscles which will help my over exaggerated posture in my lumbar region.
Editor Rob
It's more than average
Greg said on 6/Aug/19
@Ajax509 that must not be the only thing you can’t comprehend for the life of yours probably because you don’t have any life. What are you 12? Grow up oh wait you can’t pun intended. So let me try to dumb it down for you. Again I’m 5’11 out of bed and 5’10.25 and other days I’ll end up 5’10 3/8ths on more relaxed days the average person loses 3/4th of an inch. An inch is on the bigger side of what somebody might lose, you’re acting like I’m the only one. Unfortunately being an idiot does not make most of your insecurities go away lol. I wish you luck, if anyone needs a psychiatrist it’s you but they wouldn’t want to deal with you, I’ll hug my trees with my massive arm span and that’s not the only thing I’m going to hug little lad 😉.
Greg said on 6/Aug/19
@Christian It’s just an estimate lol he might be more 193 or 194 he’ll he could be 192 we wouldn’t know because we never measured him.

@Bobby I agree, the kids going through a rough time period and is mad about his stature so he has to whine and cry about it by making stupid assessments about old Gregg. His mangina is showing ;)
Canson said on 5/Aug/19
@C-Mo and Greg: I would define C-Mo as around that mark because it’s a very average height or slightly over so I think C+. As far as Greg, it’s tougher to say because it’s above average but still not into tall category but getting there. In reality it’s not much more than C-Mo but just like Greg said, with the right build and proportions, you can start to look tall
Jdubbz said on 5/Aug/19
@Cmillz I was working out today and I noticed that I was a head taller than half the guys in the gym and taller than all of them (big gym, at least 100 guys). I’m more 6’6 than 6’5, but a 6’5 guy would probably see the same thing. So I’d say 6’5 isn’t freakish, but very noticeably tall even in places with a lot of tall men (like a large gym). I think there is a threshold where you go from tall to noticeably tall in public, and I’d place that threshold around 6’4-6’5.
Jdubbz said on 5/Aug/19
@Myself: I feel like I’m getting towered when a guy is 2-3 inches taller than me (though that’s super rare these days) and I feel like I tower anyone under 6’1
Jdubbz said on 5/Aug/19
I know it’s not right to call people manlets, but getting into a d*ck measuring contest over a fraction of an inch and trying to one up @ajax509 is frankly a bit pathetic 😂😂
Greg said on 5/Aug/19
@Lell have you ever been to Switzerland? If so how do you think their average compares with Sweden over there I thought it was higher than what Ben describes but it’s all on perspective. They say average here is 5’9 sometimes I’ll walk around and be taller than most guys but then I’ll see those big 6 footers like today I was a 6’5-6’6 guy at a bar and then a few 6’2+ guys while walking around the city. Even saw a girl around my height. I know what C-mo means by sometimes you can walk around Germany and think 6’1 is average when it’s not because you see so many tall guys there’s a lot of German, French and Italians even Portuguese people here some of them look like ethnic Swedes but they might be mixed anyways I’m seeing a fair amount taller than me but I’m also taller than a lot so I can’t decide on the average.
Greg said on 5/Aug/19
@C-mo yeah only thing I will say is Jake is not 5’11.25” maybe out of bed but not in the afternoon he was measured under 5’11 on the Conan show even with the camera angle he seemed more 5’10 range and I feel like that’s how he looked with Kimmel on his show. But he still has a good height 5’10/5’11 range is definitely an aesthetic range I seen a guy today who looked my height maybe a little taller he did have thicker boots so it was a bit difficult to estimate from a distance but he had good proportions could even fool you for being taller and there’s this guy in my tour group has a good height but bad proportions and posture. He might be 5’11 range or a weak 6’0 he’s also a little difficult to estimate I seen his license briefly while he was taking it out for something but I’m not sure if I saw 5’11 or 6’0 but he def looked over 5’11 flat could have been like 5’11.5 maybe he had a thick shoe that brings him over 6’0.
Greg said on 5/Aug/19
@Ajax when you try to be funny but you’re not 😭. It all depends on what you think is ideal so someone like Jddubz would grade 6’1 a C and 6’6 an A. I think my heights not bad a guy between 5’10 and 5’11 can most certainly look tallish with the right proportions and you would be taller than both females plus it wouldn’t be hard to fill out your frame despite having long arms I manage. C-mo feels that average isn’t that good so he’s giving it a mediocre grade, for him 5’11/6’0 would be an A. More examples for Ellis 6’5 would be a C or B but 6’9-7’0 probably an A or so forth. 6’1 and 6’2 are definitely ideal for a lot of people but not everybody. Depends on how you feel about standing out or towering people.

@Guest66 Lol you again, sounds like somebody is also insecure and jealous and is attempting to project their insecurities well keep your boyfriend company over there hope you’re keep his coffee warm. I’m not flaunting my 6’2 wing span if anything it’s more of an annoyance, I just talk about it when it gets brought up. But Rob isn’t going to ban me because he likes me and I’m not doing anything to harass posters kind of like you and Ajax are doing well he’s just being stupid so obviously I’m going to use terms like that don’t like it don’t post anything. It’s funny because last I remembered you where submitting troll guesses and arguing that you think celebs are way shorter then listed.
Greg said on 5/Aug/19
@Importer how tall are you? You can’t be that short I don’t think I thought you where at least average. Many people aren’t obsessed with height, some people might think it’s weird but I would say own it there’s definitely weirder obsessions out there 6’2/6’3 would be alright but I would be fine with being 6’0 or 6’1 I don’t see it as an importance to be really tall unless you want to standout.
Guest66 said on 5/Aug/19
Yo Greg, who was whining recently about some folks on here being “doctors” and giving other people mental diagnoses ?? Well guess what, you do the exactly same thing you pathetic little hypocrite. You’re the most toxic person on this forum and many would agree.
Greg said on 5/Aug/19
@Ajax509 it seems to me you just look for any reason to argue, learning from my mistakes of dealing with foolish posters and engaging in dumb arguments with the likes of Andrea on the Misha Collins page plus a few outbursts here on General is why I’m attempting to steer clear but for the sake of shutting you down I’ll finish this. Okay posters who here saw me ever say that I measured Barely 5’10? If so speak up 🤔... Yes I over measured before and I also under measured it depends on many factors but now what I am saying is correct. I won’t even go below 5’10 at an absolute low I would be exactly 178cm at an extreme low which if we do basic math you can see it’s over 177.8 or 177.9 besides I usually don’t hit an extreme low I will measure at least 178.5cm or 5’10.25-3/8ths by the end of the day. That would be your height lol 177.9 or 177.8 you probably dip below 5’10 if you’re 178.5 30 mins out of bed you would drop to 177-177.5 territory now to mention at en extreme low you would probs hit 176.8-177ish. And never said I would tower you just find it funny that an insecure dude such as yourself is trying to make a funny by calling me a manlet, Reminds me of the time Arthur was attempting to hype up the fact he was supposedly 1/8th of an inch taller than me turns out that wasn’t the case infact it was the opposite. So will that help you sleep better at night? 😂 if so okay I’m a manlet, probably as tall as they come right? Seems to me you’re presenting false information. The only thing I said was I used to claim 5’10 “back when I was like 5’9ish more or so 5’9.5 or over. And most of the time I would say I’m around 5’9/5’10 because I wasn’t sure and at the time I was most likely 5’10 range in the morning. I was measured at 5’9 a few hours out of bed before my 17th birthday the school nurse called out 5’9 idk if I was over or what but I didn’t bother to check it was a measurement done like 3-4 hours out of bed so maybe I was like 5’9.75 then besides I didn’t start to become height aware and care that much until like my senior year. However when I was getting my height measured for a physical for my permit the nurse goofed and didn’t tell me to take off my shoes and as a result I got 5’10 whilst wearing dress shoes. I was probably 5’8.5-5’9 then and she said “you grew” but I knew that wasn’t right. Turns out by my 18th birthday I reached a weakish 5’11/strong 5’10 however you want to look at it. Sometimes I’ll say almost/around 5’11 just to not be so technical Rob said it’s fine for me to claim “Almost 5’11 in the morning” but that’s a mouthful especially considering in real life people don’t account for height loss majority outside of celeb heights will think you don’t shrink. It shouldn’t matter how tall someone is, the whole purpose of this forum is to discuss height as a general topic. Not to argue, especially over something so dumb because in the real world it doesn’t matter how tall you are unless you’re like 4’0 or 7’0 no one will care. But obviously I’m going to respond back if someone is going to say some nonsense that isn’t true I’m not taking it as an attack more like laughing about this whole thing really it’s actually quite entertaining keeping me occupied 😂

Rob please could you consider adding some of the following popular fitness youtubers: David Laid, Connor Murphy, Bradley Martyn, Mike Tornabene, Merijn. My guesses:

David Laid: 6ft2.25 (claims 6ft2)
Connor Murphy: 6ft2 (claims 6ft3)
Bradley Martyn: 6ft1.75 (6ft3 when search online)
Mike Tornabene: 6ft0.5 (6ft1 when search online)
Merijn: 6ft1 (6ft1 when search online)
Ellis said on 5/Aug/19
@Jdubbz: I was 5'9 at 14, so I'm guessing you had a big growth spurt as-well. I was measured in the morning though, I remember so I was more like 5'8.25-5'8.5 at that time. And they take it with shoes, I just remembered, damn, so I grew a foot since that time. I could barely touch the bottom of the net. Currently, I can easily touch the net standing.
Ellis said on 5/Aug/19
@Canson: You would take 5'9 over 6'7, really? that is pretty crazy, but I respect that. Like I said before, I wouldn't downgrade my height for anything, so maybe it would be a different bias towards me and since I'm a legitimate 6'7. I have a good friend of mine that is 5'9 and I colossally dwarf him, like it is unhealthy, we look like two different species. My giant shoulders loom over him, my head is a little over his, not sure of my head size though.
I also have a friend that is 5'10 that claims 5'11, and he hates to take pictures with me because I make him feel small, I joke about it a lot and I know it bothers him but it is like an inside joke.
My height scale:
5'9-5'10: Average, A lot of these 5'10 guys claim 5'11, so it makes it seem like a legit 5'11 is average but it really isn't
5'11-6'0: Above Average
6'1-6'2: Tall
6'3-6'4: Solid Tall, Kinda Very Tall
6'5 flat: Very Tall
6'5+-6'6: Starting to look Extremely Tall
6'6+: Extremely Tall.
Mark Warren said on 5/Aug/19
@c-mo These guys are attractive because of their good looks and fame, not their height. I think their height is having a neutral effect on their attractiveness. So if they were taller, they would be even more attractive - a tall height can make a more average looking guy (facially) much more attractive. The height range of 5ft9-5ft11 tends to be just 'fine', and it doesn't really add or take away from a man's attractiveness. Also, a large reason so many of these guys are around that height, is simply because it's the most common height range.

Canson said on 5/Aug/19
@Greg: I actually have Usain Bolt at 192 as well. 192.5 more specifically. He isn’t as tall as Jordan or Barkley and both of them are like 194-195 peak. Maybe Bolt was taller and lost the height due to Scoliosis though. I’ve seen people lose 2” easily to that so no guarantee he didn’t lose an inch maybe
Chris brady said on 5/Aug/19
Since my walls and floors are so dodgy and I am trying to get a measurement since my injury I am laying down on a bed. I am letting the top of my head touch the headboard and am placing a hardcover book on the bed at around the 6-1 mark and trying to touch it with my heel. Is this method reasonably accurate?

@Chris Brady you might be 6ft 1/2 atleast, possibly 6ft 3/4, judging by your current eye-level.
Bobby 178cm said on 5/Aug/19
@ajax509

I honestly cannot for the life of me understand where your comprehension is coming from. I've been on CelebHeights for a couple of years now and I've never once ever heard Greg establish he was barely 5'10 let alone what you've been prattling on about for a while now. He's always maintained a figure of 5'11 in the morning and 5'10.25 at night. That places him as being an entire inch taller than C-Mo.
ajax509 said on 5/Aug/19
The ultimate CelebHeights.com logic test:

We have a dude who claims to have measured 5ft 11.25 first thing and 5ft 10.25 last thing.
Then it turns out he over measured himself - for whatever reason - by 0.25in. He admits to 5ft 11 out of bed.

How tall is he in the evening? 🤣
ajax509 said on 5/Aug/19
Yes, on valentines day he hugs trees with his impressive arm span. I hope there's an experienced psychiatrist near his gym.

@Ajax, ignore Greg, he’s just an attention whore who has history of arguments with many posters here. If he’s not arguing with somebody, he’s complimenting himself on having good proportions and 6’2” wingspan, it’s not even funny how many times he stated that.

And you Greg are lucky Rob didn’t ban you yet for calling people morons and retards left and right.

@Ajax you have a tendency to downgrade why are you saying bolt is 192cm? See at this point you’re subtracting 2 cm’s from peoples heights, I noticed your troll pattern let me guess you think Brad Pitt is 5’9 and Gosling is 5’10 too
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 5/Aug/19
@Greg
In Ajax's defense, Bolt's likely more 192 than 195. Look at him next to people like Kobe and others. He's also not wrong about other Olympic athletes having their heights exaggerated.
ajax509 said on 5/Aug/19
The comment ("barely 5ft 10") is not older than 12 months I'm sure many posters can confirm that.

You are absolutely towering me, let's do the math 180.34 - 178.95cm = 1.39cm or 0.54in. Classic case of A+ vs F 🥂

Greg said on 4/Aug/19
@Ajax LOL i can’t argue with mentally retarded people sorry bruv, I don’t think this is an attack but merely a display of your poor intelligence. Best be careful throwing around the term manlet. You’re shorter than me so if I am King of Manlets that must make you my servant then 😉. Yes “at one point” I measured under it not now what are you bad at math and logic? Must have some sort of disability or something. Let me educate you class is in session so it’s called “ a growth spurt” jeez I feel sorry for the people reading this because you’re legit mentally not there 😂 like hollow I’m talking hamsters running through cobwebs and all. I was 5’8.5 at 16 5’9-5’9.5 at 17 and 5’10.5-5’11 at 18 up until now. No it does not seem to me that you know the imperial system because if you did you would realize. Obviously you could care less about comprehending and understanding about 5’11 or 180.3cm in the morning and 178.3 or so at a low 5’10.25 isn’t 177.8cm or below go back to school numb nuts.
Myself said on 5/Aug/19
@K.A
Well...9-10 cm advantage I wouldn't exactly call it legit "towering"...more like being "much taller".
I feel like I kinda "tower" somebody when they are at least 1 cm below my (about) 181.5 cm eyelevel.
mrfunnyguy said on 5/Aug/19
@Lell I am almost exactly 6'1 (about 185.5cm in the evening). I was estimated by a girl to be "around 175cm", which is about four inches shorter.

@cmillz 6ft5 isn't quite freakish, although it is very, noticeably tall. Looking massive is more about build/ physique than height.

@Csimpson6ft i wouldn't of given height much thought if I was comfortably tall tbh, say 6'2"-6'3". But currently sometimes feel tall and short it disturbs me.
ajax509 said on 5/Aug/19
To be honest you are not much different from c-mo. First thing in the morning he measures 178.3cm, you're basically 2.04cm taller. How can 2cm make up a whole grade?

Then again, it makes little sense to claim ideal height is between 6ft 1 and 2.

A+ 187cm Ideal height
A-/B+ 178cm Greg's height
B-/C+ 176cm c-mo's height

When you check your own exams 😂

@C-mo yeah I knew what you meant tbh I feel like a lot of those could be debated Rob has Clooney at almost 5’11, Clooney himself claims a modest 5’11.5 however with other celebs like Brad Pitt or Matt Mcon. He struggles with 5’10, Dornan I think manages to Look close to Garfield and a bit below Redmayne, personally Garfield seems taller than 5’10.5, especially if Redmayne is 5’11-5’11.25”. Also we could through in Owen Wilson and Peak Cranston in there both men look tallish on screen, being connected to what Canson was saying about 5’10 range+ looking tallish with the right proportions. Also I would grade your height between C+/B- and mine would be between B+/A- borderlining.

@ajax509 - if Greg's a manlet then you're a humonculus. We both edge you out.

@Canson
Based on what you said, I’m guessing you’d also have a tough time choosing between 5’8 and 6’8?
Greg said on 5/Aug/19
Rob how tall would you guess my dad to be if he straightened out?My mom was like 5’3-5’4 range. My grand father was like a decent 5’7 peak so might be 5’6ish by the time of the photo. What do you think his estimated Peak was? he was maybe in his 50’s there along with some medical issues which made him lose height in addition to aging. Click Here
Editor Rob
he can look over 5ft 9 maybe possible 5ft 10, but he is losing more height and in 50's might have lost a bit.

I want to continue with what I have to say because there was not much space anymore after my last comment I was just submiting 1 minute ago and hope that it will be displayed because I refreshed the site and I hope it didnt get lost

@Nik

there are many men who also look good and are around 5'8 like Zac Efron , Milo Ventimiglia (5'8.5 though) , Tom Cruise etc. . but at a height of bruno mars you have a problem ....

but the very best looking men are around 5'11 - 6'0 or a bit more or less and they also have a better height than 5'8 men

as I said :

Leo - 5'11.25

Clooney - 5'10.5

Theo James - 6'0

Jamie Dornan - 5'10.25 / 5'10.5

Tyson Beckford - 6'0 / 6'0.5

Colin Farrell - 5'10 (even though imo he is 5'9.25 - 5'9.5 but ok)

David Beckham - 5'11

Jake Gyllenhaal - 5'11.25

Joe Lando - 5'11

Henry Cavill - 6'0.5

Ryan Guzman - 5'11

Daniel Craig - 5'10.25

Michael Fassbender - 5'11 (or slightly less)

Jensen Ackles - 6'0

Adan Canto - 6'0

not only are these men facially good looking ...I mean you can also be facially good looking at any height (even though a lot of the good looking men will be around these heights from what I can tell) but look at their body proportions and how their heights look next to people . very aesthetic . and not too short and not too tall in any way


5'11 - 6'0 are really the best heights to be and a solid 5'10 is also good and a well proportioned 6'1 is awesome and arguably perfection too but any other height will never be as good as these imo ....at 5'9 you have a decent height but your height is not nearly as good as 5'11 - 6'0 ....at 6'5 you are really tall and have certain specific advantages which can be cool for example but your height will never be as good as 5'11 - 6'0 imo even if you have good proportions at 6'5

provided you have good body proportions and a healthy weight then 180cm to 184cm (maybe 179cm and 185cm too . especially 185cm ) at night without shoes is the most aeshtetically pleasing and comfortable height range you can fall in

my views and opinion is based on observations and analysing since many years in all kind of places (bars/nightclubs , gyms , school and university , grocery stores , downtown area , movies/celebrities etc. etc.)
c-mo said on 4/Aug/19
@Canson and @Greg . thank you both :)

--

@Sakz and @6footTom

you CAN have lanky proportions when you are below 6'1 ...as I said I have a friend who is around 181cm and he is a bit lanky

BUT ....

1. it is less common than at above 185cm

2. it still looks less lanky overall when you are lanky and below 6'0-6'1 than when you are taller and lanky because when you are lanky AND tall ...it is way more noticable and the height adds extra lankiness .

you will basically be more like a "stick" or street lamp no offense .

I also noticed some tall men have crooked legs/knees ...as if they are broken

go to the height challenge page and click on the photo of Challenger 5 . I noticed it on his legs for the first time . I guess it is what we call "x legs" and it seems way more common among tall men...I dont want to offends Robs friends but compare Rob and him or Rob with the other tall challengers . Robs proportions look WAY better than all of them imo even though challenger 8 also has decent proportions . Rob has a nice shoulder width and his legs dont look too long but the legs of the tall men do imo (again ...no offense) . and Robs overall body proportions are more aestheitc because they look more harmonic and also more compact . even though 5'8 is not exactly a bad height... if Rob had the same proportions but was 5'11 - 6'0 it would look totally awesome and he would also "hold his own" better next to taller men and would high average - above average height and the glass would be full

as I said when you are tall you have specific advantages for being tall and it will always be perceived better than short . however as I said when you get taller than like 6'1 or so you start to be "too long" and tall men also often have less aesthetically proportionate bodies than even 5'8 men like Rob

you can disagree if you want . and of course there are also tall or even very tall men with great proportions like Joe Manganiello for example . he is around 195cm and looks very good . there is no way that his height is bad . it is great to be as tall as him and have such a good build and good proportions for that height . however it is still too much height to be ideal imo . it is just unneccesary to be above 183cm especially above 187 and imo the best range as I already said is something around 180 - 184 at night with great body proportions and build . as I said I have a friend who is 189cm and he doesnt have bad proportions either but it is just a bit of an overkill ....he is "unnecessarily tall" ....when we are in clubs he has to duck too much to talk to women , he has to eat more food and train more to build muscle mass , he is often one of the tallest guys around and in some gatherings even the tallest . if he was 5cm shorter it would be better . but his height is still good of course and he has the advantage that women who are 175-185cm will prefer his height (he often had women around 5'10 be attracted to him)


---

the ideal body proportions in my view is basically prime Mike Tyson . but he was a bit too muscular at times

also this boxer named Obie Walker had almost the ideal proportions imo . he was just a little too bulky otherwise it is basically close to perfection

Click Here

Click Here

Click Here

he was 5'8 or 5'9

if you took his build and proportions but a little less bulky and a little less stocky and combined it with the height of 6'0 - 183cm then you would have the ideal height and body

but he (and mike tyson too) was a black gentleman and there are differences between their build and structure from ours

but some examples of caucasian men with good proportions would be David Beckham , Channing Tatum , Ryan Gosling , George Clooney , Brad Pitt , Stephen Amell , and there are probably many more who I can not remember right now . will post them later when I remember

@ c-mo - Tom Cruise ain't 5'11" though!


------------------

I dont find Bruno Mars that good looking but ok lets say he is a good looking man too ....his height is a big problem from an aesthetic point of view . he looks plain short and sometimes even very short . sure you can still attract women and also be sucessful at Bruno Mars height ....but it is way less aesthetic and will also be a disatvantage . I dont want to say more because I dont want to make short men feel bad


Tom Cruise is around 5'8 or a bit less and that is not a bad height but he is often getting talked abotu as if he is short ....would that be the case if he was 5'11 ? lol no way . I mean I have seen some women talk about brad pitt and george clooney as if they are short ...it can happen even at 5'10-5'11 sometimes but I dont take such people serious anyway and since these men are superstars they will get to hear such things more because people expect superstars to be tall lol . but yeah if Tom Cruise was 5'11 then his height would be almost a non topic and he would also look better if he was 5'11 you can not deny that because 5'11 is a way better height than 5'7.5 - 5'8

Milo Ventimiglia is a very good looking man and he is 5'8.5 which is an okay height and his height is not talked about but he seems a bit height concious . if he was 5'11 he also w
Canson said on 4/Aug/19
@Christian: I poorly worded that my bad. I meant to say for very tall guys because you aren’t the only one. I’ve heard that from several people our size or taller.

@Greg: I didn’t mean it that way. What I meant is that the only way someone can spot the difference if someone is 1/4” under the Mark is if they’re like 1/8 or 1/4” over themselves. Even then that person may not believe that they’re over the mark if theyre not made aware of it. Some nurses or doctors may measure in the afternoon at say 5’10.25 and just tell someone that they’re 5’10” which by deduction makes a person 1/2” shorter 5’9 1/2”. I didn’t mean that they would necessarily tell them that. I was just saying it to Connor as an example that it could work that way
Chris brady said on 4/Aug/19
@ Ajax I have been measured under a staduometer at 6--1 before though I hurt my back. I don't feel I lost a full t inches. My chin height still seems to be about 5-3 and I can see two inches over my 5-6 fridge.
cmillzz said on 4/Aug/19
For me personally maybe 6’6 is getting too tall, or perhaps 6’7+ would be too tall.
cmillzz said on 4/Aug/19
a family friend of mine is 6’5. Just saw him today actually. Honestly, he doesn’t give off an impression of being too tall, nor does he look freakish. He actually looks pretty normal height-wise and doesn’t seem “massive”.
Greg said on 4/Aug/19
@Ajax you have a tendency to downgrade why are you saying bolt is 192cm? See at this point you’re subtracting 2 cm’s from peoples heights, I noticed your troll pattern let me guess you think Brad Pitt is 5’9 and Gosling is 5’10 too
Greg said on 4/Aug/19
@Ajax LOL i can’t argue with mentally retarded people sorry bruv, I don’t think this is an attack but merely a display of your poor intelligence. Best be careful throwing around the term manlet. You’re shorter than me so if I am King of Manlets that must make you my servant then 😉. Yes “at one point” I measured under it not now what are you bad at math and logic? Must have some sort of disability or something. Let me educate you class is in session so it’s called “ a growth spurt” jeez I feel sorry for the people reading this because you’re legit mentally not there 😂 like hollow I’m talking hamsters running through cobwebs and all. I was 5’8.5 at 16 5’9-5’9.5 at 17 and 5’10.5-5’11 at 18 up until now. No it does not seem to me that you know the imperial system because if you did you would realize. Obviously you could care less about comprehending and understanding about 5’11 or 180.3cm in the morning and 178.3 or so at a low 5’10.25 isn’t 177.8cm or below go back to school numb nuts.

@Ajax, ignore Greg, he’s just an attention whore who has history of arguments with many posters here. If he’s not arguing with somebody, he’s complimenting himself on having good proportions and 6’2” wingspan, it’s not even funny how many times he stated that.

And you Greg are lucky Rob didn’t ban you yet for calling people morons and retards left and right.

@Mrfunnyguy

That is strange, four inches is quite a lot but many people are bad at estimating height so no surprise really. How tall are you then? Young Swedish guys are starting to get really tall where I live, 6 foot is not uncommon to see so I understand if you feel short sometimes.

@Bego
Ethnic Swedes I feel are around my height give or take two inches, but that is in my experience. Ben is the same height but he says that many are shorter than him, it depends on your surroundings basically so take it with a grain of salt.

@K.A 188 !

Actually, 178cm is a smidge above a flat 5'10, and is closer to 5'10 1/8th, whereas 5'10.5 is 179.1cm.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 4/Aug/19
@ Connor - Of course height is all subjective. 👍
Canson said on 4/Aug/19
@Jdubbz: I only would because I can get the same comfort I have at 6’4” at 6’2”. 6’2” is still well above average. 6’5 wouldn’t be much worse than what I am now but everything over 6’4” would cause issues imo. For me I’d go at lows:

1. Flat 6’4 or no less than 6’3 7/8 then my current 6’4.25-1/3
2. 6’3
3. 6’2
4. 6’5
5. 6’1
6. 6’0
7. 5’11
8. Either 6’6 or 5’10
9. Vice versa for 8
10. Tossup with 5’9 and 6’7”

Chances are I’d take 6’6” over 5’10” but 5’9 I may take over 6’7”. In reality 5’10 is not a bad height either and it is easier to add height through enhanced footwear than it is to lose it so that’s a tough call for either 6’6/5’10 and 6’7/5’9”. I could almost make myself 6’0” in appearance 6’1” in shoes at 5’10” if I wore orthotics or lifts. 6’7” just seems too tall to me watching a friend who is 6’7” when he’s in regular sneaks/shoes or boots he ducks under all doorways
ajax509 said on 4/Aug/19
@Greg
I'm well aware of the imperial system. At one point you did claim you were "barely 5ft 10" that implies a measurement below 177.8cm.

Funny how you take a height related question as a personal attack. I couldn't care less about your size. But sure for a manlet every single mm counts.

Greg said on 2/Aug/19
@Ajax if you weren’t a moron you’d realize that I overmeasured by 1/4th of an inch we don’t use cm here in America first of all. second of all I never said I fall to 177.9cm, are you brain dead? I wake up at exactly 5’11 and drop to 5’10.25” lolol. That’s not 177.9cm that’s 178.5cm, but you probably are retarded I’m 5’10.5” in the afternoon and that is what I will go by last time I checked you’re a troll so you won’t be able to dictate my claim try again though.

Guys I have a basement bathroom doorway that is only 5-11.82 range from the threshold to archway (the bathroom ceiling is 6-2 range). I am over 6 feet yet when I stand under the doorway my head isn't that close to hitting it. There is about one inch of space still. How can this be possible?
Canson said on 4/Aug/19
@Jdubbz: I’ve probably been 6’4” for 21 years. I think I hit 6’4” at 16 or 17. I probably gained a small fraction for 6’4 1/4- 6’4 3/8 maybe afterward though. I likely stopped growing at 18 if I had to guess.
Canson said on 4/Aug/19
@C-Mo: for you I would say C+. You wake up to 5’10 and don’t come all the way to 5’9”. In addition, I would have to say the average is more weak 5’9” than 5’9” flat or strong 5’9”.
Canson said on 4/Aug/19
@Ajax509 and Johan: unfortunately that is the truth when it shouldn’t be. I don’t see why a guy who is say 6’3” or 6’5 should get anymore attention than a 5’7” guy. And I also say that because what Johan said is completely true. 100%. And you also notice people when they say “oh you’re taller than that! When they ask how tall someone is. It’s like making someone taller than they actually are is complimenting them? I see it as more disrespectful because most guys in society are going to lie in the other direction. They won’t lie up
Sakz said on 4/Aug/19
@c-mo Yeah height isn't everything and any woman who only wants you because of it or to show you off as an accessory as you said isn't worth it. As for being lanky you can appear it at under 6'0 if you're thin which I was, so your build plays a big factor there. I understand where you're coming from when you say 6'0 is ideal for you. For me I go by a range and 5'11-6'2 is ideal for me since it's regular tall and doesn't provide any problems. Any taller than that doesn't provide any added benefits and is likely to pose more problems, but yes that's not to say those heights would be bad far from it.
mrfunnyguy said on 4/Aug/19
@Lell @avi I think it maybe happens when many people assume that the average height of a group of people is shorter than it really is. A guy can for example appear to be of average height and really be average, but people may underestimate his height because they think that the average is shorter than it really is. Hope that made any sense. As a matter of fact a girl once guessed me to be four inches shorter than I really am, something that made me furious lol.
cmillzz said on 4/Aug/19
I’ve never been guessed lower than my actual height, so I can’t relate.
Csimpson6ft said on 4/Aug/19
@avi I respectfully disagree with you, I think 6'0 is at least moderately tall. I wouldn't go as far as saying it's only slightly above average, it's 3 inches above the average height that's actually quite a big difference, not massive but in comparison it's definitely a noticeable difference and at 6'0 you're still taller than the majority of people, we're talking like at least 83% taller than most people.

However I do agree that 6'0 is an overrated height though, dont get me wrong guys it's quite good but in some situations you wont always feel tall and you can only feel above average or tallish if theres enough 5'10 guys in the area, it's really not as great or magical as people say it is so yeah i do agree with you on that point, overall 6'0 is just a weak tall height or moderately tall, solid tall is 6'1 and 6'2.
Csimpson6ft said on 4/Aug/19
What grade do you guys think my height is? Id give it a B+ i feel 6'0 is a fairly good height but it's nothing special, an A+ for me would be 6'1 or 6'2, definitely 6'2.
Greg said on 4/Aug/19
@Avi most people don’t understand height and height differences. I had a friend claim 5’11 to me as he was noticeably short than I was when I said “oh really?” He said “ I mean you tell me” so I told him you’re not much over 5’9, he said I had no clue what I was talking about 😂😂 the irony, can’t wait to measure him one day and prove I’m taller. My other friend thinks we are the same height even though I edge him by at least an inch. He wouldn’t even hit 5’11 in boots. But he guessed me at 6’0 before so it goes to show how people don’t actually understand height differences I have another friend who’s between 6’2 and 6’3 he claims 6’5, and there’s no way he has 6.5 inches on me, by his admission I would then have to be like 6’0-6’1. My mom is the opposite of yours she thinks I’m 6’0 lol but my mom is also 5’2 range so it’s hard for to tell how tall someone else if they are a lot taller than her. Our family physical therapist claims to be 6’5 but he’s no more than 6’3, probably 6’2.5-6’2.75” while he does look a tall guy 6’5 is just impossible but to be fair I think he isn’t exactly sure of his height.
Greg said on 4/Aug/19
@Avi Yep Jddubz tends to do that we never tried to make it seem as if 6’4 was a bad height, it’s just not our cup of tea. I don’t see any point of being that much over 6’0, so like 6’2 is plenty for me no need to be taller even 6’1 or a weak 6’1 would be more than plenty for myself.

@C-mo yeah I knew what you meant tbh I feel like a lot of those could be debated Rob has Clooney at almost 5’11, Clooney himself claims a modest 5’11.5 however with other celebs like Brad Pitt or Matt Mcon. He struggles with 5’10, Dornan I think manages to Look close to Garfield and a bit below Redmayne, personally Garfield seems taller than 5’10.5, especially if Redmayne is 5’11-5’11.25”. Also we could through in Owen Wilson and Peak Cranston in there both men look tallish on screen, being connected to what Canson was saying about 5’10 range+ looking tallish with the right proportions. Also I would grade your height between C+/B- and mine would be between B+/A- borderlining.
Greg said on 4/Aug/19
@Prop King @C-mo Yep 6’0 is ideal I sound like a broken record at this point because I repeat myself numerous times when I say this but if I was 6’0 I wouldn’t complain at all. 5’10 is ok, nothing special I feel like most people do say those sort of things when they would like to be taller. Lifts are annoying to walk in and are temporary so I mean if you’d like to feel slightly tall but it would be short lived than go for it. Personally 6’1-6’2 is the golden zone but if I was 6’0 I wouldn’t complain even if I reached a solid 5’11 that would be nice.

@Sandy Well to be fair it wasn’t that accident that caused my IBS and it might not even be that the GI’s can’t figure it out they said they aren’t sure I’ve been too many specialists and such. The injuries with my disc and back where before my accident but I think it made it a lot worse. Oh well you can’t have your cake and eat it too 😂. I’m sorry to hear about your mother though. The itching is most likely allergies I have that a lot and sometimes people in my family do too it’s definitely from medications. I’m allergic to almost everything so I feel that thanks Sandy hope you enjoy your weekend as well.

@Canson Lol lets be real nobody 1/4th of an inch over is going to call out someone claiming 1/4th of an inch under even if you’re good at spotting fractions who cares? No need to be so technical you can round up nobody really wants to say all that in a claim anyways maybe on here but in person most people don’t realize notice I know some people who can’t even notice a half of an inch which goes to show how small that really is.

ajax509 said on 1/Aug/19
When you go with 5ft 11 as male ideal (UK vote) you have to put 6'4" at the same unbalanced rank as 5'6" (+/-5").

-----------

In a perfect society that doesn't favour taller individuals that would be correct but it just isn't.
A man who is 5'6" will have in no way the same kind of initial draw ( i say initial attraction) that a 6'4" guy will have. Society still praises taller people while making the short butts of jokes.

There is also the issue that women want a guy taller and by this many mean with their heels. So even in the UK a 5'4" woman will be 5'6-5'7" easily in many types and getting up to 5'8" range in the bigger ones. So to be above that you would need to be a guy who is at least 5'7" barefoot but to have some noticeable height a 5'9" barefoot man.

I have friends who are short and have watched them struggle purely because of their height but again this is with certain types of young women. Older women seem to care far less for such trivial things.

I have alot of respect for shorter guys as they need to work hard to get past that initial hurdle that tall guys take for granted.
Canson said on 3/Aug/19
@Cmillz: my bad. I didn’t phrase it right. Meant to say to taller guys. 6’3” is. A lot of very tall guys would probably take 6’3” over 6’4 or 6’5”. Universally tho probably 6’2” or 6’0-6’2” which is just tall not very tall. I start tall at 5’11.5 to 6’2.5 maybe and very tall 6’3 to 6’6. I think once you’ve hit 6’6.5 at a low maybe 200cm it becomes extremely tall
Canson said on 3/Aug/19
@Rob: I’m sure at least prior to 2009 that some NBA players measured at a low. However even before that some were measuring close to morning heights if they laid around or after 09 it’s prrty much all morning heights. I almost always knock off minimum 3/8” from morning to evening. Some NBA players listed here who I can believe their draft listings are Carmelo Lebron both of which would be maybe max 1/4” lower Westbrook to name a few. Durant I would believe but he seems to have grown or maybe it’s true that he was over 6’9” and told them to round down or something. A flat 6’9” seems too low but over 6’9.5 seems too high

@Jdubbz: one person here “accused me of downgrading” because I was jealous or some dumb sh*t. yet he upgrades people on occasion if his estimates don’t add up with other celebs and also makes the same identical backhanded comments to people when they disagree with Rob (lowering his estimate for the celebs). It’s never to anyone who guesses celebs above Rob’s listing though. But I can go and cite several comments consistent with that. And He also put words in my mouth and “accused” me of “shouting” at Rob to downgrade people. I’ve never “shouted” at Rob to downgrade nor have I even said “Rob please downgrade him”. But I have seen others say that. And I have heard others say “Rob upgrade him”. But he would ignore the latter. That’s called embellishing and putting words in someones mouth and also yes a straw man argument. He even went as far as to say that the measurement doesn’t matter what time of the day but For this site the basis is afternoon heights as we all know. I think now that I specify that in my estimates I don’t hear it as often. But back to that same poster, he has accused me of the same thing when I didn’t agree with Rob on an estimate for a celeb when I simply just commented. It was in no way disrespectful but he likes to play that card probably to curry favor with Rob or because he doesn’t like people who he perceives as downgraders. Typically people like that aren’t very honest about their own height or are insecure with it one of the two. Anyhoo He made it sound as if I was slighting and accused me of disrespecting him just like he did Sotiris. He’s made those types of backhanded comments to more than just me and coincidentally it’s always to people who estimate below Rob. The guy is a yes man to rob except when he feels the need to inflate on occasion. Ironically this person recycled the same words and used them on Sotiris and something similar with Viper previously

@Arthur
178 or 5ft10.5 it's a nice height. My father who was 181 peak, today is the 178 range and even though I tower him he does not look short although he is slim and still looks tallish.
Maybe your posture is not really good that's why you probably feel shortish at times but even with that I still wonder how come you feel short...I mean 178 it's on the Upper-average side so you should fell tallish sometimes.

@Greg
I was born and still live in Italy. I have lived only 2 entire years in Russia (when I was small), but I used to go to St Petersburg and Omsk for about 2 months every year in the summer, until a couple years ago.
My father is Italian, my mother is Russian; she was born near Omsk.
Yeah of course there are many tall Russians, but exceptions are everywhere, and being big & tall is usually an advantage of you want to pursue a physical professional career... that's why a lot of athletes are much taller than average. One could look at the NBA and think that Americans are huge, you know...
So I'm not sure what is the real Russian average, but I know the Russian YouTuber prankster Edward Bil has claimed to be 180 cm (I think he can't be below 179 cm for sure and might be honest. Btw He was guessed roughly 185 cm in the comment section of one of his videos), and you can see in his videos that he's taller than many Russians.

Yeah I didn't turn around or anything...didn't want to make it awkward for them, as she probably thought I didn't hear her.
Another funny thing is that when I walk in the dark, at night, it has happened multiple times that people seem to be a little scared, just because I was passing by, or walking behind (lol. Expecially in smaller streets, without other people around). Once a guy got really scared, stopped and said "What's up?", just because I changed direction towards the door of the house I live in and he was right in between (we both laughed when I told him that he just stopped in front of my door).

But yeah I see why you think that tall guys may vibe well with each other; I wouldn't mind walking with some guys near my height too (aswell as I don't mind being with short guys; my best friend is like 5'4).

"and it is rare for a man below 185cm to look lanky"

I don't think that's true at all. I've seen plenty of people below 6'0" who look lanky, it's pretty common among younger folk.

Of course, there is an ideal height. Statistically it is simply the mean of all votes.

@Canson
Disagree that 6’3 is seen as the most ideal height universally. It’s way too subjective tbh. Some will say that 6’3 is too tall to be seen as ideal, while others may even say that 6’3 isn’t tall enough. There will never be a universal agreement on what the perfect height is, because quite frankly it doesn’t exist.
Antonio55 said on 3/Aug/19
Interesting the latest discussion on ideal height for men. From a health perspective, the latest research shows inverse correlation of height with longevity (although I believe the factor has more to do with weight than height per se, but as height and weight are positively correlated...). Longevity is basically absence of life-threatening ailments, so in old age, height is correlated with poor health. Summary of one meta study Click Here


From a sports perspective, the most well rounded athletes (to have a mix of strength, explosiveness and endurance) are considered to be decathletes, and anecdotal evidence from coaches and researchers suggest that around 183 to 185cm is ideal. Current world record holder Mayer and former holder Eaton are both about 185cm. Sports article Click Here. Research article Click Here


The average Olympic 100m sprinter is around 183cm (Bolt (195cm) is the exception, but former holders are Gay (180cm), Blake (177cm), Powell (190cm), Gatlin (185cm)


Socially (to attract mates and get prestige from other males) and from a business perspective (income and wealth studies), the research is more mixed, but 188cm seems to be often quoted, although there are studies that show 180cm as ideal to attract mates ((Click Here)


Cheers!

@Rob
Yet there are those who inflate NBA players and other measured athletes and their excuse is that they've grown. Yet I don't see anyone call them "upgraders". It's a clear double standard when it comes to downgrading and upgrading.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 3/Aug/19
@Cmillzz
I think when he said "universally", he meant average. If you do a survey around the world of the ideal height of men, you'll get something like 6'0" IMO.
Greg said on 3/Aug/19
@Viper Yep some guys think they can get away with that it’s like me saying I’m 6’2 and somebody walking up to me shutting me down and then me being “confused” why that could have possibly happened.
Greg said on 3/Aug/19
Also for the record just in case anyone else was wondering about what Ajax was talking about yes I thought I measured 5’11.25 previously I was using a smaller sized can and wasn’t doing it properly I think my wall was not level, I remeasured and got 5’11 exactly, no big deal. So morning 5’11, and evening 5’10.25” I never fall below 178 at an absolute low, which is not something I reach every day only under extreme conditions. Since Ajax doesn’t to understand feet and inches let me put it to him in cm lol. 180.3 Morning and 178.3-.5 evening. I even recently measured just under 179cm at night time after an intense workout so I have no idea where you are coming up with this 177.9cm nonsense I never go down to that. Maybe that was my morning height years ago but I’ve grown since then. I claim 5’10.5 179cm here because I’m that in the noon and almost/around 5’11 in person. Most people guess me to be taller but I don’t inflate myself or others. To be fair I can claim anything between 5’10 and 5’11 since I measure those heights at some point of the day or to be technical 5’10.25-5’10 3/8ths at a low since that is what we use in America here not metric. I don’t actually care that much. I used to claim 5’10 back when I was measured 5’10 and shoes and didn’t think much of it plus at that point I grew so I thought I was like 5’9.5 and was basically rounding to 5’10, however upon check again I managed to get 5’11 in the morning,I have undermeasured and overmeasured before it happens wall slopes, can size, posture etc plays a role. Plus my postures really bad I have a herniated disc so I am working on fixing it so I could potentially measure taller that’s what my chiro told me.

@Canson:

I agree with everything you said, though I am quite surprised that you’d be willing to go as low as 6’2 before choosing 6’5. Maybe I can’t really comment since I was only 6’4ish for about a year and weak to strong 6’5 range for under 6 months but the shift really wasn’t all that drastic for me. 6’3.75 - 6’5.75 over 2 years is definitely a big difference, but 6’4.25 - 6’5.25 not so much. You’ve been 6’4 for what, 18 years now?

@Big King
I've never accused you of lying, I just wanted to make sure that you were measuring correctly because a 1/2" loss at your age is strange.
Ellis said on 2/Aug/19
I was measured at 6'7 at my absolute low, well a fraction over but it was a paltry amount, less than an eighth so it doesn't matter. I took my height yesterday using Robs technique, I was then measured and got the same result. Wingspan is still 6'11.5, and my standing reach is 8'8.
@Canson: I do feel extremely tall. I'm definitely a presence everywhere I go, I'm built up a bit more now so I see it more than I used too. Nobody really asks my height, but if I'm ever in a social situation 95% of the time GUARANTEED they will ask how tall am I. Not many people are taller than me, it feels like I gotta go through a couple of thousand of people to find one. Ethnic Dutches are 6'4 I reckon, so they are roughly your height. Being a huge amount latino myself blood-wise, me being this tall is pretty amazing, I'm over a foot taller than my ethnic nationality, I am American though to clarify. If I went back to my homeland, I would be a giant, literally. Last time I went I was 14 and still comfortably taller than everyone there, I can't imagine how it would be if I went now. I'm also a good amount Dutch, so that is definitely where I get my height from. My grandfather is 100 percent Dutch, but the rest of it is all Latino(grandmother for that set, and for my maternal grandparents are 100 percent latino). Although I am part Dutch, and I look way more Dutch than Latino, height-wise, skin wise, I consider myself as Latino. I actually met my grandmas oldest brother recently he speaks only Spanish and he is 5'3-4, and I colossally dwarfed him, but it was a beautiful thing getting to know him.

@Honestslovene . I know why you thought that I said that germans are 185cm because I said that sometimes it FEELS as if the average height for young german man is 183 - 187cm lol . there are indeed some days where you feel as if you are in giantville in germany . but in general even here I dont feel short at my height of 176-177

Clooney and Dornan aren’t 5’11 tho

well they are not lower than 5'10.25 or at the very least 5'10 ....close enough I guess . but this proves my point even more imo . 5'11 is a very good looking height and is definitely enough


@Nik and @Canson

what school mark would you give my height ? I am 176cm in the afternoon and 177cm after being awake 1-2 hours so I am a little bit taller than 5'9

my height feels like a C+ to me personally

"Avi I've actually noticed the opposite in many tall countries..."

That's interesting indeed. I have seen that too so it's not so uncommon I guess. Mostly males do this to other males. Probably ego thing.

My friend who is maybe a bit over 5'9 claims 5'10ish, said to me "what are you 5'10.5?" So I think he is understating the margin between us as pics indicate a good 2.5 inches can look 3 at times.

My mom thinks I'm just 5'11 because liek many is brainwashed that the magic 6'0 is all of a sudden tall when it's really just a slightly above average height...

My ex gf years ago when I was in the 5'10 range guessed me as a little over 5'8...
If I was she would have been 5'0ish and she was a good 5'3 lol. Clueless.

Well Jdubbz had put words in my mouth and Greg's. Like i never said 6'4 was a crappy height. I was stating that really tall heights are not ideal...even really short heights aren't.

In general it I will state that 6'0 is a better height than 6'7 due to the numerous aforementioned to points I have made along with other posters.


@Johan 185 cm said on 30/Jul/19

Yes I am familiar with that study.

Click Here

That one seems more plausible
But 5'11 is a bit different than 6'4.

I think 5'10 to 6'2 is most ideal range.


6'3/6'4 is out of that area.

There aren't that many tall women (I mean 5'10+ women)

Though I do agree a 5'10-5'11 women wearing heels would be 6'2ish. And a 6'4-6'5 man suddenly isn't so tall compared to them but we are talking about normal sized people.

Women between 5'1-5'8 I'd imagine prefer men 5'10-6'2 in most cases.
Occasionally 6'3 and 6'4 may pop up. Never really heard many women say they want a 6'6 guy or something unless they were really large themselves.

Remember a lot of these women think 6'2-6'3 is 6'4.

Like is said a co worker described me as tall. Probably thinks I'm over 6'1.

Lot of people skew heights.

@Mark Williams said on 25/Jul/19

You say you'd rather be 6'5 than 6'0 until you are that height.

I do agree that 6'2 is one of most ideal heights as that is mostly true. Actually 6'2 is maybe a but too tall to fill out perfectly. Could be 6'0-6'1 tops.

I would rather be 6'5 than 5'9 but 6'5 instead of my height now I would have to pass on that.

As many have said the benefits decline drastically past 6'2/6'3.
Canson said on 2/Aug/19
@Cmillz: 6’2” seems to be the most popular. 6’3 for a very tall person
Canson said on 2/Aug/19
@Ajax509: thanks! I don’t know any other way because I’ve got taller friends that all claim their lows too. 6’6 (peak 6’6 1/8 probably) a 6’7” flat (peak may have been 1/8” over too) and 6’5.25 guy who only claims 6’5” never any change and also wakes up 6’6” himself. But also because I am happy with 6’4” as well. I don’t feel the need to want to be taller
Canson said on 2/Aug/19
@Csimpson: I only advocate the about because if you get a guy a hair over 6’0” claiming 6’0” and someone else is 5’11.75 that won’t add up and they would call them out. Maybe even call them 5’11 1/2” possibly. That’s why I advocate about. You could say almost but about may sound better to most since people won’t discredit you being the height you claim. Almost probably not either

Guys I have a basement bathroom doorway that is only 5-11.82 range from the threshold to archway (the bathroom ceiling is 6-2 range). I am over 6 feet yet when I stand under the doorway my head isn't that close to hitting it. There is about one inch of space still. How can this be possible?
