He does have the proportions of a 5'10 guy. But when you place him beside others, he stands out
Importer said on 24/Jun/19
I thought he was like 5'10. Ooops
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Feb/19
I think he clears 6ft1. 186cm is the lowest I’d argue
Gracian said on 26/Nov/18
To be fair, I still think Sam deserves a 1/4 inch downgrade. Here are photos of Sam next to Daisy Lowe, on which their footwear looks similar:

The difference between them does not look like three and a half inches, more like three inches.
You can see him next to Jourdan Dunn, she is wearing high heels and looks taller than him, but Sam is wearing shoes with a heel and he has high hair too. Here are the pictures:

Please, look at him again, next to Rachel McAdams, she is wearing heels, but Sam is again wearing shoes with a heel and Rachel, despite the advantage of heels over him, she makes Sam does not look like 6'1.5". Here are the pictures:

Sam never wears flat shoes, and his hair often makes that Sam look taller than he really is and it can cheat us! However, I will not go as low as 6'1" flat for Sam. Please, Rob, give him a downgrade to 186 cm.
Editor Rob
Forest I think is still ok at 6ft 2, though at times he can seem strong 6ft 2 in 80's and 90's. Sam has looked as short as 6ft 1 at times, so 186 is possible. I haven't decided.
Gracian said on 8/Sep/18
Rob, I think Sam really deserves a quarter inch downgrade, even his average votes are right and that gives him 6'1.25". Here are his photos alongside Elvis Duran (the first of 2014 and the second and third of 2017):

Stephanie Sigman and Monica Bellucci with heels do not look much shorter than Sam:

Dave Bautista today may have only 6'2.5" but in 2015 I think he was still 6'2.75", between Sam and Bautista the difference looked about 1.5 inches and between Sam and Daniel Craig the difference looks maximum 3 inches:

I can believe Sam is measuring 6'2" out of bed early in the morning, but not in the afternoon or night. I wouldn't like to go with Sam as low as a flat 6'1" but I think 186 cm really looks better for him. Rob, will you give him a downgrade to 6'1.25" now?
Gracian said on 17/Aug/18

Rob, I think he deserves a downgrade to 186 cm, you said it looks more and more to him. Definitely 6'1.25" would be a better list for him.
MAD SAM said on 10/Jul/18
186 cm at 6’1.25”, he cant be more

The flat 6'1" looks a bit too low for Smith, but 6'1.25" is a real opportunity for him. Rob, will you give him a downgrade to 186 cm?
Editor Rob
Anywhere in 6ft 1-1.5 could be possible, 186 is something he can look more and more.

@Rampage

If he really did claim 6'5", then I wouldn't be surprised at all if he claimed 6'4" too.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Nov/17
Christian, they're ridiculous claims alright but I think it's most likely those didn't come directly from him.

As for his real height, I think 186-187cm range is fair. Sometimes can pull off 188cm
Canson said on 22/Sep/17
Christians listing fits better strong 6'1"
Slim said on 19/Sep/17
186(6'1.5") robs listing is spot on guys.
Canson said on 28/Dec/16
As listed.

"Sam Smith's Height is 6ft 1.25in (186.1 cm)"

Can't believe he had the audacity to claim 6ft5 (if the rumor's true, because I can't find his claim anywhere.) And almost as bad as his alleged claim, is this article which described him as 6ft4 Click Here
Aaron Zamora said on 12/Nov/16
I think he's a 6'1 guy rob. I've seen his wax figure we were shout the same height and I'm 6'0
BilboBaggins said on 20/Oct/16
@ RetroGoGo 🔽 - Yeah, you're right, Sam Smith could very well be 6' 2", seeing as he has been seen to tower over Taylor Swift (in her high heels) on several occasions. As you said, Smith is a typical case of the 'long torso, short legs' body type (as Irish comedian David O'Doherty hilariously described in that song of his, lol!). BTW, I met David O'Doherty and I can tell you that he is definitely taller than 6' 2"! He dwarfed EVERYONE in the lobby, including my legit. 6' 1" friend with me. David is closer to 6' 4" for sure.
MrTBlack said on 31/Jul/16
6'1.5" is still LOL to me but much better than 6'2".id say 6'1" flat. His 6'5" claim was really out there.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Jul/16
Good call
ly said on 6/Jun/16
He really cant be this tall.
Can you find a pic where he does look this tall cause i couldn`t.
And his posture is usually good and its not like he wears flat shoes so i can`t undertand what made you think 6ft2 Rob.
Editor Rob: I think the 6ft 1.5 mark is probably closer to what he can look.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/May/16
I'd rule out 6ft1 flat but 6ft1½ could very well be it for him maybe a weak 6ft2 at a push. Did he really claim 6ft4 though?


He looks like Boy George...
TJE said on 23/Apr/16
6'1.5 would be perfect. Looked 2 cm taller than weak 6'1 David Letterman.
Kareem said on 21/Apr/16
6'1.25 is perfect for him. Maybe 6'1
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Mar/16
Rob, could 187cm be closer?


He can look less than 6ft2 a lot. Not sure he's only 185cm though
Editor Rob: 6ft 1.5 is entirely possible, I won't rule that mark out.

In this recent picture he looks the same or a bit shorter than 6 ft tall Adam Lambert Click Here

Legit 6'2 guy. I met him once and was supprised at his height. I'm 1'85 and we seemed around the same, But I had Nike airs on and he was in dress shoes so 187/188 can be believed for him.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Feb/16
Not sure I'd argue 6ft1 flat. He can look 6ft2 at times. Just never 6ft3-4.

"Sam Smith's height is 6ft 1½in (186.67cm)"
miko said on 7/Jan/16
6'1 is pushing it.
Andrea said on 6/Jan/16
Rob, he was in an italian radio show and he looked somewhere in 6' range when they took the photo but maybe he wasn't standing at his tallest? A full 6'2 is probably too high, though!
Editor Rob: 6ft 1 could be argued for him
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Jan/16
I'd love to this guy to claim 6ft4 to my face
MrTBlack said on 11/Dec/15
Got it thanks. Still believe anything more than 6'2" is not true for him.
MrTBlack said on 10/Dec/15
So Rob, now that Letterman is Just under 6'1" and he appeared shorter than him (allthough could be due to footwear) shouldn't he be downgraded to 6'1" like you originally thought?
Editor Rob: I watched a clip of them and didn't think he looked shorter, I believe his sneaker was a little thinner than dave's shoe.
Rudopp said on 16/Nov/15
More like 6'0' next to these guys, Dave Bautista is 6'2' Click Here

He claimed 6ft3.

@G

He's 6'2" max if lucky, my bets on 6'1" maybe 6'1.5" with him.
FlameBoy said on 5/Jul/15
Classic 6 ft 1.75 IMO
G said on 2/May/15
Hello. I saw him being listed as 6'4 recently, which I do not agree. I believe he is 6'2
MrTBlack said on 30/Apr/15
6'5"? I guess he felt that winning best new artist of the year made him deserve an extra 3". Lol.
Green said on 24/Apr/15
Saw that he claimed 6ft 4 on 60minutes, but I reckon he is only 6ft 2 at most, possibly even as low as 5ft 11/6ft, definitely not 6ft 4 though unless he's had a recent growth spurt which is impossible

6'1"-ish, with a terrible haircut.

@Amaze Maybe it's his widows peak, I dunno. Just looks a bit off to me.
Amaze said on 19/Mar/15
@lelman what's wrong with his hairstyle? I personally think it looks stylish


6'2 sam smith is
Bishop said on 4/Mar/15
Rob, where exactly did he claim 6'2"?
[Editor Rob: from an early promotional page, before X-factor days anyway]
Chuckie Cheese 2 said on 9/Feb/15
Great singer, and talented. He looks a full 6 feet 1 to 6 ft 2. He does wear tall shoes, but regardless, is quite tall fellow.
lelman said on 21/Dec/14
This guy desperately needs a new haircut. 6'2ish, 6'3 with that thing on his head.
Jay said on 14/Dec/14
His legs do look short in the photo but his head is rather large no taller than 6 foot
cece said on 12/Dec/14
when you see Sam smith on your phone he looks kind of short but in never seen him in person. But if you see him in person he might be a foot taller than you
MrTBlack said on 10/Dec/14
@RetroGoGo

Until now I've never seen him stand straight and assumed he was average height since I never
Got to seem him next to people. He's in the tell category for sure but did look shorter than David Letterman so Id say Sam Smith is 6'1" or 6'2" but I don't think he's under 6'1".
RetroGoGo said on 9/Dec/14
Some people have mentioned that he can't possibly be 6'2"/6'3" because his legs look "short". Well, did anyone even consider that his torso might be longer than his legs?? That's surprisingly common, believe it or not. Irish comedian David O'Doherty (who's approx. 6'2") has this, er, 'problem' and he even wrote a hilarious song about it, lol (it's on YouTube). :) Sam Smith is definitely 6'2" - we all saw how he still towered over the leggy Taylor Swift (who was wearing heels) - regardless of footwear, a guy would have to be standing at over 6' at least to be noticeably taller than her, of all people!
MrTBlack said on 6/Dec/14
I've read some 6'3" listings but agree with Rob. 6'2" is the most I can buy.
Bishop said on 1/Dec/14
A lot taller than Ellen: Click Here
MrTBlack said on 12/Sep/14
Rob, are you trying to tell me you think he isn't 6'2"?
[Editor Rob: he can look 6ft 2 and 6ft 1 at times]
ShelbyRae said on 5/Sep/14
Wow I thought he was shorter.
Voiceless Dental Fricative said on 3/Sep/14
Am I watching the same video as everyone else? He looks the same height as Letterman.

He's 6'1-2 range. (maybe not a full 6'2)
Lol said on 29/Aug/14
He stood next to taylor swift for a performance and taylor swift is 5'11 and he stood clearly taller than her
jam james said on 10/Aug/14
wow I never thought he was that tall
TJE said on 6/Aug/14
Maybe 186 is a better fit.
MrTBlack said on 28/Jul/14
He did appear 1-2" shorter than Letterman but wouldn't go ahead and say he's a solid 6' unless there's more evidence.
[Editor Rob: for reference, here is Greg James and JCB who in person is a typical 6ft.

And James with Smith here and Here.]

With Divad Letterman at the end of the video. Hope this helps.
TJE said on 21/Jul/14
Saw him on David Letterman the other night. Looked 2 inches shorter than Letterman with similar footwear when they shook hands, but Letterman has a huge camera advantage. Looked 182 range to me then, but he could be taller, like 185.
Small dude :( said on 16/Jul/14
He always looks tall and is usually the tallest guy in photos I've seen of him standing with others. 6'2 seems about right.
Chris said on 14/Jul/14
His singing voice is 7ft tall
Jay said on 11/Jul/14
I want to see who's taller between him and Adam Lambert.
176,2Tunman said on 11/Jul/14
Indeed,his legs look short here.I guess many people would look shorter than they are from this angle
Arch Stanton said on 10/Jul/14
176,2Tunman says on 9/Jul/14
It's impossible to judge someone's height just looking a pic and comparing your legs to his,there should be someone to compare with to say whether he's close to his claim or not.

Duh, stating the obvious. I said IN THE ABOVE PHOTO his legs look shorter than a typical guy near that height. Looking at that photo alone you'd think nearer 5 ft 11 than 6 ft 2, but I HAVEN'T COMPARED HIM with anybody so can't make an accurate judgement.
Chris said on 9/Jul/14
His short legs was what i noticed too. There's pics of him next to 5'9 Florence Welch (she has longer legs than him) at Glastonbury, but he does look 6'2 next to her, i think
MrTBlack said on 9/Jul/14
I haven't seen enough of him next to celebs but judging from his proportions, I'd say he's 6'1" max. I did picture him shorter but I doubt he'd exaggerate by more than 2".

Anyways he seems a good 6'2 for me,he towered Taylor Swift.
Arch Stanton said on 9/Jul/14
Honestly, I've never heard of him, although the face looks familiar. That's how much I watch TV nowadays! I have no idea how he compares to others but looking at his legs in the above photo he doesn't really look anywhere near it there, they look far shorter than mine. He's got a pretty big torso though.
