Looked like a really big guy at first glance, like at least 6'2 if not 6'3.

Then I looked at his lower body. His knees sure look out of proportion with his upper legs and upper body.
3-4 inch total lift there possibly?

So maybe 6'1? Not even sure what to guess, but I advise everyone to take a close look at how raised his knees are.

Couldn't imagine him over 6ft 1 that moment.

Looked very similar in height in photos with Adman Januzi & Robin Van Persi - who even looked a little taller than Arthur

@Rampage: yea he likely would at some point whether it be out of bed or after maybe an hour. I can see 6’2 flat as his afternoon height or 6’1 3/4” worst

May have measured near 6ft2½ earlier in the day....around the 6ft2 mark is fair overall. His build can make him look taller. In that photo he could easily pass for 6ft4-5!

@6'2brit, though I think Robin Van Perise just SAYS he is 6 foot, frame wise and next to people who are say 6 foot 1 6 foot 1.5 is where I would say he ranges, which means he is about 6 foot if he looks one inch shorter than Robin Van Persie, however frame wise this guy looks about 186cm

Seems totally wrong listing this guy at 6ft2. Google him with 6 ft guys like Robin Van Persie and Christopher Maloney. Both of them are saying they’re 6ft.
Looks at least an inch shorter than Robin Van Persie, If not more. Imagine to claim you’re 6ft2 and a half and then you’re struggling to look 5’11 with Van Persie. I’m not saying he is as short as 5’11 but can a 189 cm guy ever look like that next to 6ft guys.. I don’t think so.. He is not just looking the same height as them, but a lot shorter. I think this guy needs to stop saying he is 6’2-6’3, because it’s a lie.

@ JAcomment

in the pic with Mendes Arthur is definitely shorter..
Rob you can’t have Arthur at 6ft2 and Shawn under 6’1!
There looks to be a solid inch difference between them. Google “James Arthur and Shawn Mendes”. It’s the one on twitter from December 2016. After seeing them together I suspect 6’ range for James.

Based on what I see on the internet, I think he is shorter. Even included his bad posture.

1) there is a picture with him and Shawn Mendes, who is about 185 cm. looks shorter

2) with Ed Sheeran, who is 5’7 to 5’8, he looks like he is lucky if he is 6 feet

3) there’s a clip on YouTube, from the X factor, called ‘Xtra factor’, where Olly Murs (174 cm) visits his home and then plays ‘heart skips a beat’ outside. I know that he is standing quite loose there, but still, I can’t imagine the difference between them would be as much as 14-16 cm if he stood tall. As they stand there, he looks at most 1.82 m

4) and with Rylan Clarke, he looks really short. And Rylan is about 6’4.

5) if you google him with Nicole during the X factor 2012, who’s about 5’5, I do not think it looks like a 25 cm difference, even if she is wearing heals.

He is wearing 1-2 inch boots or thick shoes all the time as well.

For me, he can look like 5’11 at times, but because of his bad posture, I would guess 1.83,5 - 1.85,5 m. I do think that 6’2 and 6’3 is a wrong listing

But I’m not sure how much the posture really affects his perceived height

Met him in February this year. I'm 5'10, was wearing four inch heels and he was a fair amount taller. looked over 6'2 but was in boots so 6'2 seems right to me.

My husband is 6'2" and I'm surprised James isn't at least 2 inches taller. He looks very tall, maybe because he has a small head compared to the rest of his body.
Alex said on 18/Oct/17
Always looked at least 3 inches shorter than Rylan Clark, so unless Rylan is 6'5, I think 6'2 is an unlikely listing. Easily over 6' and just under 6'2 is likely. I'd give him around 6'1 mark.
Slim 6' said on 16/Oct/17
187.5/6'1.75" would be a better listing.

Google James Arthur and Olly Murs. He looks no more than 3 inches taller than Olly which would make him just under 6 foot. I'd add a picture but I'm not sure how
Editor Rob
with a worse lean he can certainly look not much taller than Murs.
It's very possible he measured himself in shoes at 6ft 2.5

Didn't think he looked 6ft 2 on his recent x factor appearance.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Oct/16
Rob, are you sure he's a strong 6ft2?

You said earlier anywhere 6ft1-2 was arguable
Editor Rob
yeah he could look under 6ft 2, but he has a build of a solid 6ft 2 guy as well, his claim of being over isn't impossible.
Gordon said on 14/Aug/16
I met him in England he's a strong 6ft 2
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Feb/16
Standing alone in that picture his proportions could pass for 6ft3-4!
S.J.H said on 13/Nov/15
No offence. Arthur look like a face of girl with a men physics but a real 6 foot 2 to me
James B said on 25/Mar/15
In the PR photo looks 6ft4

His head lloks tiny compared to his height!
Arch Stanton said on 9/Aug/14
Rob do you think he looks a full 6'2" next to Rylan? I can't believe he'd measure the same height as Andy Murray put it that way. He does look near it though in a lot of pics. I think 6'1.5" looks more accurate and Rylan is more 6'4.5". He can certainly look 194 can't he?
Editor Rob
I had a look and Arthur and Rylan's postures at time are poor. It is a possibility Arthur is a bit under 6ft 2, but he really does stand quite loose at times. Anywhere in 6ft 1-2 range is arguable
Arch Stanton said on 8/Aug/14
@ Rhonda. How does he look taller than 6 ft 2 next to 6'4" range Rylan???
Rhonda (Snowy) said on 7/Aug/14
Looks taller than 6ft2.
Arch Stanton said on 7/Aug/14
He can look 187cm granted. I think 6'1.5" might be more accurate.
Arch Stanton said on 7/Aug/14
Rob you can't have him at 6 ft 2 and Rylan at 6 ft 4! Click Here I suspect 6'1" range and Rylan is 6'4.5"
max said on 7/Aug/14
Always wondered about his height- Looks Tall and I saw he gets listed as 6'3 but he has answered 6'2 to the question so go with that, I would have guessed around 6'2 for him or close to it
