Hey Rob, could you please help me out on the height of the basket player here with the big black ring around his head Click Here ?
I know the guy just beside him on the right (his left) was 1,84 two years ago but might have grown since then. Also the black guy in the middle I know is 1,88. I would be glad to know your take on this

No is it heck!
Robin said on 27/Jun/17
Guys, One of best friends 5'7 1/4 at night. Is 5'7.25, barefoot at night, too short for a man.
Greg said on 27/Jun/17
@lak be happy you are a legit 6 footer, most guys would kill to be that height! your little brother is slouching and losing posture but manages to look a decent 6'2 range with you. Was this at night time? your brother could possiably wake 6'2.5-.75'
@Sandy haha nice you randomly just approached her and ask? Usually I wouldn't do that unless I hear somebody talking about their heights then I chime in. Like I was at this cookout with my friends and this one guy who was probably a weak 6 footer claimed 6'1, and I was like no way if I'm 5'11 theres no way there would be 2 inches between us unless I was taller then I thought, which unfortunately I am not.
Greg said on 27/Jun/17
@Tim personally I am not 6'1 or close to it, but yeah you would still feel tall walking around. From what I observed, say you are a weak 6'1 guy, you would feel tall like 80% of the time in most places. And Idk canadas average is about the same in the states, though each region varies depending on the social class I think or nourishment conditions.
Greg said on 27/Jun/17
@Nacho, Hey man I noticed Rob's not replied yet, so let me give you my opinion on my estimate. So the pictures you used are very poor for judging height, especially since you blocked out the eyes and made all these indicators lol. I understand you want to respect the guy's privacy, but pictures like that make it much harder to estimate height. I'm going to say he is not a legit 5'11. I myself am a weak 5'11, but that's because I measure the mark in the mornings, am down to 5'10.5-75' by noon and drop even more down at my low/ultimate low depending on how the day goes. The other guy who you said was "180cm" looked a bit taller then 180cm, he might be a strong 5'11/weak 6 foot. But again due to your pictures being the way they where I am not able to estimate it as accurately as possible. how do you know those guy's he edged out where weak 5'10's? Another way to see if someone is bsing a claim or not is to look at their eye level. a 5'11 guy's eye level in most cases might be 5'6ish-5'7 depending on if they have a high or low eye level. That's how I estimate people's heights. Also not every 5'11 guy is going to be exactly 5'11, you can have two guys who claim 5'11 and one might be a good chunk taller simply because one drops below 5'11 at some point the other might go to bed at a fraction above 5'11, that goes for any claim by the way. I think generally you can tell who is lying and who is honest about their height. On average most guys will inflate themselves by an inch or even 2, some even more then that! can you imagine? Generally 5'11 guys usually say 6 feet and some even 6'1, because they think people are not height aware.
Nik said on 27/Jun/17
@ Sandy Cowell

Does the height of someone's shoulders compared to someone else always give you an indicator of who is the tallest?

I often Incorrectly judge people to be smaller or taller than myself so I wouldn't worry about it, it's so confusing sometimes!

There is nothing wrong with laughing and seeing the funny side of things!

Cheers!
Tim said on 27/Jun/17
Are there any 6'0.5-1 guys who feel tall out in public? I think in Canada people are a bit taller than the U.S, which is why I see a bunch of taller guys out in public, and I only feel tallish. However I think that range is the beginning of tall. I am 6'0.75.

@Bobby
With increasing height the differences between genders will be bigger - for instance:
5ft 9 = 5ft 4
6ft 0 = 5ft 6.5
6ft 3 = 5ft 9
6ft 6 = 5ft 11.5
Deathstroke said on 27/Jun/17
Canson, where do you live if I my ask, I'm fairly new here so I don't really know the community just yet :) But I live in Finland, Europe where basically no one knows how much and inch is :D I have said my height as 6'4" to like 20 people here who reply "what?" :D People seem to claim their afternoon height here and I have challenged 2 friends who said they were 193cm and I was taller than them 8) We were all about 8 hours out of bed and I was 193,1cm and my friends were 192,0cm and the other one was 191cm 8) But yeah Canson I would probably say 194cm if I was your height and 6'4.5" elsewhere if I was feeling confident :) I have told people I'm 193cm pretty much always (Well since 4 months ago when I reached my current height) but once someone asked in the morning time and I said: "At this moment I'm 194cm" And once, a month ago I said 192,5cm because I had been up for 20 hours and was at my lowest :)

@ Bobby, Nik and anyone else who fancies reading this!

I was behind a woman in a queue yesterday and thought she might be shorter than me! I asked her how tall she was, adding that I'm interested in that sort of thing, and she was very nice and replied, "I'm only 5ft2! You're not very tall either! How tall are you? 5ft?"
Then I noticed her shoulders were heigher than mine!
I replied "I'm 5ft1!"
I think I might have been having an off-day! πŸ˜”

@Deathstroke lol your comment is funny wouldn't your neck strain with being such a short girl. And to answer your comment I'd say over 5'7 at least so height wouldnt be such an imposition in the relationship.

@Blazer how can you go from saying 6'1-6'2 tallish and then 6'5 is freakish it just seems counterintuitive.

@christian Well that's interesting have you ever dated a girl That tall cause if you have I salute you man.lol. But seriously I only ever end up with short girls like 5'2-5'6.
179cm said on 26/Jun/17
I'm not saying that I think height discrimination doesn't exist, not by any means. But people are taking it way too far complaining about their height at 5'10"+ much more so at 6'0"+ When you see women on the internet demanding guys who are '6 feet plus' or people saying that 6 feet plus guys earn more money, don't assume that they know how tall that really is. Legit 5'10" passes as 6 feet a lot of the time.
179cm said on 26/Jun/17
@grizz

Yeah most of those guys found that people didn't even notice when they were taller. Also notice that those guys at the beginning would be perfectly content with being average height (5'9"-10"), they weren't obsessed with being 6'3" like some people on this site.
Bobby said on 26/Jun/17
@Robin, well, a general rule is that men are on average 5 inches taller than women. So a legit 6'4 man's female equivalent would be 5'11 (180cm).

Bobby said on 26/Jun/17
@Sandy Cowell, so you're 5'1? That means your male equivalent would be 5'6. You're exactly as tall as my grandmother, but don't worry Sandy, I've seen even smaller women than you. About as small as 4'10 or 147.3cm actually. The feeling of being a foot taller than someone is a weird feeling because it makes you feel even taller than what you measure yourself at. Usually, women that petite tend to class in together all the 5'10 and 5'11 guys with the 6ft guys. Ideally, I prefer women that are around 5'3 to 5'4, I like petite women but don't wanna strain my neck or back trying to kiss them.
Canson said on 26/Jun/17
@Deathstroke: yea if the 195 out of bed 193 were my low I would just claim 6'4". 1/4" is not much value add tbh. Maybe 1/2 if it were the lowest but really If it's your lowest go ahead and claim the low. I only go with 1/2 sometimes because I'm right at 194 and 3/8 and 1/2 the half sounds better. LOL, I like the ring of 6'4 1/2 or 6'4 and change. But 195/193, You'd be 6'4.25 2-2.5 hours out of bed so it would not really be much of an average. Still a morning height. Average is more around 5 hours maybe essentially it's what you measure for the greater portion of the day. You'd be a good 6'4 tho at that stage.

Right now I come down to 193.9 usually at my lowest and 6'4.25 if I go to the gym. If the .25 were an every day low I'd prob still go with 6'4 and change similar to what Christian has said he goes to 6'5 and change or 6'5.5 as a claim rather than just 6'5 because you look a hair above it his low is 6'5.25 or 3/8 as well. But if I think people across the site misinterpret what Rob says about his lowest and automatically assume that you take a fraction of the actual loss when in reality rob's 5'8 1/8 is his lowest as well and it's what he claims.

Robin, female equivalent of a legit 6'4"/193.04cm man like me is 5'11"/180.34cm" and even 5'6" can be tall for a woman depending on the country where she lives, but generally worldwide 5'7", 5'8" and 5'9" is tall for a woman and 5'10", 5'11" and 6'0" is very tall and 6'1", 6'2" and 6'3" is super/extremely tall for a woman :)

Fellow over 6'3"/very tall guys: What is the perfect height for women in your opinion? I love petite women, but I also love tall women, I don't judge any height of a woman and could basically date any size woman as long as their personality is awesome, but a petite woman or a tall woman of a certain height range is a plus for me :) I love 4'10"-5'2" petite/very short women and 5'10"-6'2" very tall Amazon women! The absolute perfect height for a woman for me is 4'11" or 6'0" - 6'0" woman could wear 5 inch heels and when I am in dress shoes we would be the same height 8)

-------

My ideal for a woman is 5" shorter than me, so around 6'0"-6'1" is perfect. She would still be shorter than me even when wearing high heels (although I don't think most women at that height love wearing high heels that much).
Canson said on 26/Jun/17
@Deathstroke: most of the day for me would actually be Around 194-194.3 I'm down to 194.6 after 2 hours normally so then drop to 194.2 after 5 hours. After 7, 194-194.1 Then the other 8 hours I'm below 194. Yea I claim 6'4 and change or 194cm flat in metric but for license or passport purposes 6'4" don't round up. I think you'll hit 6'4" flat at night thononce it settles meaning your spine!

Michael R said on 25/Jun/17
I've reached the height where I don't care if I see men taller than me. I'm fully satisfied where I am and anymore it would be difficult to find clothing and you start to look goofy stand out. The other day I got into a confrontation with a kid from my school and he was about 6'4 but at a gangly 180. We got face to face and I had to look up to him but when things got physical he was uncoordinated with his strikes and I threw him around like a rag doll.

Yeah I think it's guys like you who just use height as an excuse. I think that first woman just pretended it was your height that was the issue, but it was really the attitude you revealed at the end of that post.

@Editor Rob,

Hey Rob, it's me again and i would like to talk about this person I know who claims "181cm", but in person he really doesn't look it. He looked more in 5'10"-10.5" zone. Look at the pics with other people I've met and see how tall "X" is?

With a 5'6" max girl (she has 0.5inch footwear over him)
Click Here

With 5'11" guy (who also claims 184cm!!)
Click Here

With 5'8.5" guy
Click Here
Click Here

I would say his 181cm claim is a stretch for sure. But i didn't think he was under 5'10" in person, but certainly wasn't over 10.5" and might be closer to just 5'10" in fact.
I can say he was somewhere in the 178-179 range, tho flat 178 isn't impossible. Btw I saw him edged out other weak 5'10" guys the other day, so it's a bit strange why there are more notable difference between him and a 180 guy. While at least in real life they're looked 0.5-1inch apart, but the 180 guy might have a good posture while "X" has terrible posture maybe? Not sure tho. Also when ever I stood/walk past him he can be tricky bcuz he did look under/over an inch shorter than me. But sometimes I did felt like I was a Solid inch.

Rob, how tall would u estimate that guy?

@Sandy Cowell. I measured my height yesterday. I'm 6ft and 3/8ths barefoot at night. I prefer a woman whose same height as me or close to my height. Its better to make babies with a tall woman, if you want a tall son.
Bobby said on 25/Jun/17
@Sandy Cowell, no, women aren't really meant to be taller than man. Since men are on average 5 inches taller than women, your male equivalent would be 5'7, if I'm not mistaken. Besides, my grandmother is 5'1, I tower over her greatly. That height category was in regards to men anyway.

@trip1 i wouldnt say 6'0 is much taller than 5'10 its just 2 inches but its a noticeable difference, id say 6'1 is probably the start of tall in the Netherlands, 6'0 would just be above average/tallish there.

Canson, I had measured wrong before, now I measured correctly and I am 195cm exactly out of bed but 5 minutes later I've already lost an millimeter, but I stay over 194cm for a 3 hours and after 8 hours I'm still over 193cm :) at night I am 192,6-192,7cm, but If I go to the gym (and I usually go at the evening or when I have already been up 10 hours) I am 192,5cm at my lowest. Now I say I am exactly 6'4" and if you are 193,9cm at night usually, then you are 194,5cm most of the day and I would say that if I was you :) But if I was you I would also say 6'4.5" because it's easier to say than 6 feet 4 point 57 inches :D I am 193cm in metric, 6'4" imperial you are 194,5cm in metric and 6'4.5" imperial :) With age if I drop from 195cm to 193cm at my lowest then I would claim 6'4.25" (Only If I am over 193,7cm for most of the day like 8 hours after being up, but I would still claim 6'4" only if I just drop from 195 to 193 faster, but stay at 193cm :) Still I am very happy with my height and I always feel very tall and even if I go to the Netherlands I am still tall ! 193-198cm is the perfect height range because you are very tall but not too tall! If I was 197cm, I would be 2 meters in shoes because I always wear shoes that give 2,5-4cm (my basketball type sneakers are 3cm, my Timberland boots are 4cm and my dress shoes are 2,5cm) I know useless random heights of mine too, I have measured myself a bit too many times in the past week :D With shoes on my hair touches a lamp perfectly which is exactly 2 meters off the ground :D And when I tip toe I am exactly 8cm taller :D

No part in Germany has an average of 183-184cm. I don't where you got that info from. Even the national Netherlands average isn't quite that high. Only young Dutch men are 183-184.

@trip1 I see you have a problem understanding height ranges. If average in Holland is 5'10" to 6'0" range (I personally think it is more 5'11"-6'1" or at least 5'11.5"-6'1.5" but whatever), then the average height range is in the middle or 5'11" / 180 cm, not 5'10" / 178 cm.

"6' is much taller than 5'10"

@Trip1 This smells like insecurity. 6' isn't "much" taller than 5'10. In real life when you're standing next to someone who is two inches taller, it's barely palpable.
Josh said on 24/Jun/17
@trip1
First of all, how do you know the excact height of everybody? Do you have some special eyes? Many guys are probably shorter than you think they are.
Also, that one campus represents not whole Germany. Like I said before it depends on where you live.
167-168cm is short, sometimes very short with younger people in some areas yes, but overall (especially with all races, age groups) it's a normal short height, which you see daily.
Like Rob also said, 5'3, 5'2 maybe even 5'4 are really heights who will stand out always on every situation, that's what I would call very short. I hope it is now clearer what I've tried to say 😜

Why do women wear high heels, I like high heels, I think look sexy on a woman. But why. I heard men started wearing heels before and now only women wear it.
Editor Rob: it certainly makes their legs appear more defined.

I'm sure many women wear them for that, plus to add height of course.
Robin (6ft said on 24/Jun/17
I'm 6ft and 3/8, at night, barefoot. I once approached a young woman and we both spent a long time together, she enjoyed being with me, we had fun. I told her she's a beautiful woman and I wanna date her. She finally rejected me and told me that I'm short for her, she wants a taller guy, but wanted to remain friends. I didn't want to just be friends with a girl, I wanted to have sex with her. She was a pretty tall woman (5'9-10). Tall men are desired by both tall and short women, and both tall and short women reject short men. On dating sites women are completely obsessed with tall males, they have a mans height, 1st or 2nd on their list. I'm currently with another girl, Ive been sleeping with her for over a year. Im planning to end the relationship but I don't wanna break her heart. She said she loves me, and she thinks I love her. I'm only interested in pussy, nothing else. Having children and being in romantic relationships is stupid

Bobby183,5cm, Woah that is a big family! :) And yeah the average height for a Asian male is 5'5"-5'7" the average height for men in your family is 5'11.7" ! I assumed that "about 6'1"" meant 6'0.75" and "about 6'3"" meant 6'2.75" and you are 183,5cm which is 6'0.25" :)

Yo rob in the morning I'm 183 cm, during the day I'm 182 cm and before bed I'm 181 cm. I'm 183-185 with shoes on, should I claim 6ft as my height or 5'11. I also have a pic of me measuring my self on Uzi vert profile that you replied to
Editor Rob: you fall towards a strong 5ft 11 range. Some guys at 181cm will round up to six foot, but I feel it is too much, maybe 5ft 11.5 is ok as a compromise.

But really, like I always say - whatever you feel comfortable saying...'6ft in the morning' is also something that can make others realise they might measure taller (if they didn't already know).
Canson said on 24/Jun/17
@Deathstroke: if you're waking to a solid 195 (I was thinking it was a full 6'5). My guess is as your height and body adjust you may get to a solid 193 at your lowest. There are a lot of variables. Then again depends on how long your torso is as well. I'm about 6'4 1/2 and I lose 3/4" per day with a proportionate body which is the norm for most plus or minus maybe 1/8" or less. When I was that age I didn't measure or know it varied like I do now. Just took whatever I was measured but typically my measurements in high school would be in the afternoon and when I played ball in college I got them at 6am practice before and then got one at a late morning practice or something. I believe I grew a fraction tho after I hit 19 as my father is 6'4" solid and when I started college we were the same exact height and maybe after or midway through freshman year I was about a cm or 1/2" taller than him by a hair and still am about the same difference now although he may be more 6'3 3/4-7/8 today which is still good at 70 years old. If I stand at my tallest at night Im 193.9cm-194

In your case tho, Christian said it better. And your he's about an inch taller than I am (6'5 1/4-1/2) and he loses roughly 2cm the same way I would also come down to 193.7 or 193.8 on a gym day from 195.8 out of bed.
Canson said on 24/Jun/17
@Deathstroke: if you're waking to a solid 195 (I was thinking it was a full 6'5). My guess is as your height and body adjust you may get to a solid 193 at your lowest. There are a lot of variables. Then again depends on how long your torso is as well. I'm about 6'4 1/2 and I lose 3/4" per day with a proportionate body which is the norm for most plus or minus maybe 1/8" or less.

Yeah that is no more true than '99.9% of men want a skinny woman' though. No, it happens, I've seen plenty of women with shorter men or with men who are similar height.

in Netherland:

5'2" or less extremely dwarf

5'3"-5'6" dwarf

5'6" - 5'8" small

5'8"-5'9" short

5'10"-6' average

6'1"-6'3" tallish

6'4"-6'6" tall

6'6"-6'9" a lot tall

over 6 ft 10 giant

I don't agree that standard. If average height is only 5'10 (177) in Netherlands, 6' must be considered tall, not average. If average height is 6' for Dutch, 5'10 has to be called "short". It is impossible to consider 5'10-6' is the same thing. 6' is much taller than 5'10.

I live in Germany and the average depends... In the South of Germany People are shorter than in the north, in the South the average is no more than 178cm and in small cities are averages as low as 174cm. in the North Overall its probably 180-181 cm and in the City Hamburg even as high as 185cm. But People in Germany are always measured nearer in the Morning than at Night...

I wouldnt call an honest 167cm guy very Short even in Germany and especially not in the UK. Its a pretty ordinary height.
Very Short or very tall for me are heights who are pretty rare like 160cm or 200cm but everbodys opinions are Different so thats why i think all these height Charts here are useless and all these multiply height categories like extreme Short, ultra short, giant etc. a Bit silly... but of course its nothing wrong with your opinion 😊

@ I disagree with your opinion, I am not German but lived there 4 years. I attended an German university there. 168 is very short totally, even 175 is very short on campus. For local German college male students, their average height must be 183 cm at least. I am 194 cm, never felt tall among my German friends. Yes, I am much taller than average height of German based on database, however, what I have seen is what I have seen. There are many young German are taller than me on campus, I can tell you, once there were 7 German guys in my class were over 200 cm.

@ Robin - Hi! I knew a couple where the man was 5ft4 and the woman 5ft10! They had two sons together. Unfortunately, the man died a few years ago. He was a joy to know - interesting and very witty. He also was a good, kind person.
So you see, Robin, there are exceptions, though I do totally agree that most women do want taller men, but surely that shouldn't take precedence over compatibility or ruin one's feelings or regard for a potential partner because the person is lacking in a few stupid inches!
I knew another 5ft10 woman who didn't pass up a boyfriend because he was shorter than she was! They do exist, really! Take heart all you shorter guys! Who wants a shallow partner anyway?

No part in Germany has an average of 183-184cm. I don't where you got that info from. Even the national Netherlands average isn't quite that high. Only young Dutch men are 183-184.

Why do 99.9% of women want a tall man. Every woman I meet says the man must be taller than her, and they refuse to date short men. One woman told me, even if the man is a foot taller, its perfect. I have never seen a woman with a man shorter than her. Short men get rejected, by both tall and short women. Women are brutal when it comes to short men. I think short men are the equivalent to fat women.

@Josh I've been to Germany before and yes, northeners are a bit taller than southeners. Overall I'd still think it is between 179 cm and 180 cm, in Bavaria the average is around 177-178 cm, in Hamburg 183-184 cm, I've seen the 185 cm figure but that was a self reported figure.

How tall are y'all parents and sisters and brothers?

-My dad is 183cm in the evening at 50, He claims he was 187cm in his peak, but he was probably measured in the morning :D I can't believe he has lost 4cm already but I believe he was 185cm
-My mom is 165cm
-My big brother is 179-180cm
-My other big brother 183-184cm
-My sister is 165cm
-I have zero cousins, uncles etc. who are over 183-185cm, but my grandmother's brother was 188cm in his peak.
-My dad's real dad who he has only met once was 6'4-6'6" so I guess that's where I got the tall gene :D

Insomniak, Yeah on the first day of school of every new year of high school, everybody guessed my height and I had to correct them because they thought I was taller than I really was :D My high school didn't have many tall guys to begin with and the tallest guy was an inch taller than me by the time I graduated. I was 6'2" when I graduated and the taller guy was 6'3" and he was shocked that I was taller than him when I ran into him recently :D He ad stopped growing at 16 and I kept growing after 20. I was always the shortest among my friends until I was 17-18, and all of my friends stopped growing at 16-17... My tallest friend is 6'3.5" and this year I grew past him 8) I live in Finland and I have never seen a guy taller than 203cm (6'8") the average height in Finland is 5'11" I believe, I have only seen like 3 people who are 6'6" or taller :0 Anyway it sucks that you are gonna get taller and people are probably gonna make tall jokes more, door frames are gonna be a burden and good clothes are harder and harder to find and the clothes you have now aren't gonna fit as well anymore :/ I tought I stopped growing at 18 and now I have had to buy all new clothes :(

@Deathstroke it wouldn't matter either ways but I'm sure I'll grow as I wouldn't just abruptly stop it'd have to be gradual I presume. So were your high school days like mine every summer I'd come back people would remark on how much taller I seemed. Same with you?
179cm said on 22/Jun/17

Yeah that's assuming those women know how tall 5'11" actually is, which I doubt most of them do. In reality a lot of guys just lie and claim 6'0" when they are below 5'11".
Deathstroke said on 22/Jun/17
Canson and Christian, I didn't know that so thanks for the info! :) I measured two days ago and woke up at 195cm exactly and went to bed at 192cm but I had a really long day, was up at six in the morning and went to work and then home and then walked around town shopping and such for a few hours, then I was at home for a few hours and at night I went to the gym which closes at midnight and when I walked home it was 30 minutes past midnight and I measured myself at 192.2cm ultimate low to be exact, so a 2.8cm loss at worst! Yesterday on my typical day I went from 195cm-192.5cm, but then I layed down for an hour or two and got back to 193cm. Anyway it would be nice to go from 195cm to 193,5cm at night one day!

Rob is it possible for hollywood actors to look exactly the same as they did at 16 when they are 43,I remember watching early episodes of saved by the bell in the 90s Mario Lopez at 43 hasn't changed at all since he was 16 how it is that possible most men change loads apperance from 16 to 40 Keanu Reeves at 52 looks no different to when he was 30.
Editor Rob: it's hard, though some may age very well.

Plus, with cosmetic surgery, beauty regimes, good diet, many can reach 40's and still look barely out their 20's.

HonestSlovene said on 22/Jun/17
@bigbob Those are the official averages, because...well, they actually are. The most reliable data are usually (around 90%) true, there is no consiparcy here and the Germans are on the taller side for sure, but them being all 6'1"+ and blonde with blue eyes is a common Stormfront stereotype. Average in Germany is around 5'10.5", 5'11.25" for younger guys, in the UK it is about 0.75 of an inch less, this difference is nothing really.

Girls throw out bull***t like that all the time. My sister is 5'5.5 and she says she will marry at least a 5'11.25 guy, desirably a sportsman, with broad shoulders. I just hope she will grow up, she's still in her mid teens. :))

bigbob said on 22/Jun/17
I might add that 180-182 seems regular for a German at Uni, so us Brits should be around 7.5cm less
bigbob said on 22/Jun/17
I think from reading some of the comments below, that average height might not be the same as 'typical' or 'regular' height.

For example: In a group of 10 people, if 9 were 1.75cm, and 1 was 193, then the average would be 177cm, and the 'normal' sized guys would all be below average.

I think that a legit 5'8" is regular in Wales, and 5'9" in East England (inc London. The official average is 177, but the official average for Germany is only 3cm more, yet a typical German is much taller than a typical Brit.

I wonder if Rob would agree?
G 5'11 said on 22/Jun/17
@unsure(now I'm sure I am 174cm) hey who you calling a troll? Haha jk. But honestly if you where to put two guys together that where half an inch apart I probably would be able to tell you which one was taller even though the difference would be that small so a guy who's 5'11.5" would look a bit different then a 6' depending on footwear unless the other guy had a footwear advantage. Robs a good guy and all but even he can't 100% accurately estimate, his estimates are really close I feel like but it's difficult.

You are of average height, there is no doubt about it.
Someone will consider you average, someone high, but only a French guy will call you short (manlet or something else).
You have average height, 5'9-5'9.5 - the average height for 85% of the countries of our world.

G 5'11 said on 20/Jun/17
@C-Mo I agree to disagree, yeah 5'11 is a decent height so if you're muscular and good looking girls will love that and pretty much nobody would call you short granted you're a legit 5'11. However you aren't exactly tall at that height. If you ask me I would pick 6'2 over 5'11 and 6'5. I only know like two people who are legit 6'5's one of them is a bodybuilder tank, really menacing looking guy with tattoos and piercings. Looking like a NFL quarter back/line backer. The other one is a lanky stick. So as you where saying like Mangiello frame, proportions and body structure does play a role. But if I could be a legit 6 foot I would still be content, imo that's the next best to 6'2. Anything taller could work but it all depends, yeah 6'4 would mainly help in sports and stuff, def a lot of people asking about your height. I also think if you're a legit 6'4 you can spot people's false claims. Ex 6'2 guy saying he's 6'3 or 4, or something like that. I've observed many heights over the years, with my height obsession and it really does depend. I feel like 70% of guys are not content with their heights though. The percentage might be shorter with females, I'm estimating about 30-40% of females aren't content with there's. But as the saying goes the grass is always greener on the other side.

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

you would chose to be 6'2 and the next best height you would like is 6'0 ? lol what about 6'1 ?
Canson said on 22/Jun/17
@Christian: agreed!! That's what I was telling Dearhstroke too that his may shorten from a full inch to maybe 3/4". But I may have said it wrong too. I think actually what Rob mentioned was what you said it's more your morning height will probably be less and evening remain same

Lunchtime height of 18-45 males in Wales as I have observed:

Average: 170-174
Upper average: 175-176
Above average: 177-178
Tall: 179-184

Pretty much the average for most of the UK I'd say.

Add approx 2.5cm for the tallest regions (East England/Scotland)

Today I was around a lot of people. At a swim club, multiple restaurants and my gym when it was super busy. I was easily around 300 men and 300 women and I did not see a single woman my height, the tallest woman was about 6'0. I saw about 25 men taller than me. Maybe around 15 people my height. And the vast vast majority like 250 men were shorter. I felt towered only 3 times and all of which were at the gym around a 6'6 guy a 6'7 guy and another 6'7 guy. I towered over other guys a lot.

@Canson

I heard that the older someone is, the more morning to night variance lessens. A person in their 20's may lose 3/4", while a person in their 70's lose maybe 1/2", given that both of them are of equal height in the morning.
Canson said on 21/Jun/17
@Grizz: anyone who has surgery dealing with vertebrae or spinal discs is susceptible to height loss. 2cm is understandable if he really did lose that or it could vary based on when he measured meaning he could've lost a bit less than the full 2 (maybe a full cm) but if it's a difference he sees of 2, he likely had to lose something
HonestSlovene said on 21/Jun/17
@bigbob That low? I'd be suprised since the British has striked me of very average height in EU. Probably around 177-178 cm (178-179 cm for younger males), 173 cm is shortish and 183 cm would be tallish, 170 cm start of short and 185 cm start of tall, 167 cm start of very short and 190 cm start of very tall.
HonestSlovene said on 21/Jun/17
@179 cm I'd say average France is realistically about 5'9.5" overall and about 5'10.25" for young white guys 18 to 30 y.o. . 5'8" looks normal in France, as well as 5'11"-6'0".

Rob how do you see women in public who are 6ft 0in and above i saw one woman who was very slim the other day at an art exhibition she must have been at least 6ft 1in barefoot and 6ft 2in in sneakers.
Editor Rob: women 6ft and over is much rarer. I can go a day without seeing a six foot women out of 1000+ ladies I walk by in our town. Similarly, seeing men over 6ft 6 is as rare.
Unsure (Now I'm sure I'm 174 cm) said on 21/Jun/17
I've seen some trolling here and it's sad. I've also seen in the comments section of Rob's photos, where Rob actually met the celebrity, people disavowing Rob's estimates. But here's the thing, photos can be deceiving. Why not just believe Rob and celebrities who claim a height unless it's obviously a lie. If a celebrity claims six feet, then let them claim it. Because unless you met them or measured them, how could you tell the difference between 6 feet and 5'11.5?

Let's get accurate about celebrities and promote accuracy and honesty, but these people are in a very superficial industry. If they want to claim their morning height, let them. But I think playing the game of half inches and centimeters is ultimately pointless. I'm almost afraid to post this because it will inevitably be met with trolls, but it's just words. Nothing anyone says here can hurt me.

@Brendan 179cm a low is a height you reach at the end of the day, an ultimate low is a height you reach that's lower then that , generally stress on the discs either through intense activity or lack of sleep/nutrition and hydration can make you reach lower heights I've experienced the same as a weak 5'11 depending on what happened

@indonesian guy, yeah shox give a nice boost and if you put a little lift in there people could see you as a decent 5'11 range guy. Depending on proportions, my arm span is 6'2 so a bit long for my height, I can get away claiming 6 foot depending who's around and if no legit 6 footers are around πŸ˜‚ It's funny actually a guy who was the same height as me couldn't be more then a weak 5'11, actually claimed 6 foot and I was looking him right in the eye, I believe I had a bit more footwear but I knew we where similar because we stood bare foot before. Because he said he also weighed 160 and he looked pretty slim, I'm muscular so idk if he was overexageratting weight too.

5'11 is not better than 6'5" , if it was , why most 5'11 guys are not happy with their height ? Seriously, I have yet to encounter a guys who feels happy with his 5'11 "

Since you talked about attractiveness , why do I see more hot women with 6'5" guys than with 5'11" guys?
Also, most women have height requirements on dating website, 5'11 is often the lowest height they want . How 5'11 can be good if it is almost considered too short ? I don't understand.

But , most importantly, I think you have a good height if you don't feel short , it has nothing to do with being a particular height

Canson said on 21/Jun/17
@Deathstroke: I have a feeling that even if you don't grow anymore that you can likely hit 6'4.25 evening as your morning to night variance may shorten as you get maybe into your early 20s. I wasn't into the measuring at times of the day prior to maybe 2-3 years ago but I've seen and heard rob say your spine will settle more and especially if you build the back muscles up some
Deathstroke said on 21/Jun/17
Insomniak, Do you want to grow taller than your current 6'6"? in my opinion 200cm and over is too tall and I wouldn't want to be that tall, I always wanted to be 6'4" when I was young but everyone said I won't grow after 16 when I was 5'10-5'11, but by some miracle I grew to 6'4" (6'5" out of bed, 6'4" at night, 6'3.75" if I'm up for 24 hours and walk a ton and go to the gym)

6'4"-6'6" is the perfect height range: 6'42-6'5" is very tall and still tall in even The Netherlands where the average height is 6'0" and 6'6" Is the start of super tall where you have an imposing height, but you don't hit your head on door frames! (Door frames are usually 6'8" and 6'6" guys are 6'7" in shoes :D)

I'm 6'4" without shoes at night, I'm 6'5" out of bed and in shoes at night, I'm 6'6" in the morning (first 2 hours of being up) with Timberland Tackhead shoes or Basketball sneakers that give 1.25-1.5 inches :D

French guy is a troll. He claimed that the average in France is 185cm. I've watched a lot of French films and 5'8" actors look very normal. Gerard Depardieu generally appears tallish and he's probably only like 5'10".

@c-mo

Yes, 5'11" is tall enough. You don't really need to be any taller. I've never seen anyone on this site with some sort of legit reason for wanting to be 6'5", it's all ego-maniacal stuff like wanting to beat others at something, or the idea that women hate guys who are not at least a foot taller than them.

Deathstroke my growth was almost similar yours in that I went from short to tall. I was 5'6 at 14 and now I'm 6'6 at 18,I'm extremely uncoordinated because of the nonstop growing I think ill hit 6'7-6'8 when I'm done growing.

IMO facial attractiveness + average or even slightly below average height is better than being tall and ugly. also agile body and good proportions plays a major rule. human by nature is attracted to the beauty of the face at the first glance. the other things comes as second. therefore model industry works based on these rules, 1.facial attractiveness , 2. agile body and good proportions 3. height above average to tall category 5'11 - 6'2 for men, 5'8 - 5'11 for women.. but not too tall and they could break this rule by selecting average or slightly below average height if you had succeeded in the first and second conditions.

Rob, I do have scoliosis, this causes me a bad posture. I measure myself after a good sleep and I'm 184,2 cm barefoot. But during the day I drop down a lot. I see the difference. Sometimes I have pain at my back and really I'm like 180 cm. What can I do? I'm gonna start swimming soon but maybe some excercises at home in the meanwhile? I feel already lucky cause my parents are: dad 173 cm and mom 162cm so I'm glad. It's all about posture and health. Thanks in advance.
Editor Rob: I would watch videos on scoliosis exercises on youtube as a starting point, maybe even find someone who is more a specialist, because you might be able (even with very mild scoliosis) to help attain a better standing height.
G 5'11 said on 20/Jun/17
@C-Mo I agree to disagree, yeah 5'11 is a decent height so if you're muscular and good looking girls will love that and pretty much nobody would call you short granted you're a legit 5'11. However you aren't exactly tall at that height. If you ask me I would pick 6'2 over 5'11 and 6'5. I only know like two people who are legit 6'5's one of them is a bodybuilder tank, really menacing looking guy with tattoos and piercings. Looking like a NFL quarter back/line backer. The other one is a lanky stick. So as you where saying like Mangiello frame, proportions and body structure does play a role. But if I could be a legit 6 foot I would still be content, imo that's the next best to 6'2. Anything taller could work but it all depends, yeah 6'4 would mainly help in sports and stuff, def a lot of people asking about your height. I also think if you're a legit 6'4 you can spot people's false claims. Ex 6'2 guy saying he's 6'3 or 4, or something like that. I've observed many heights over the years, with my height obsession and it really does depend. I feel like 70% of guys are not content with their heights though. The percentage might be shorter with females, I'm estimating about 30-40% of females aren't content with there's. But as the saying goes the grass is always greener on the other side.

@Rob, is it really possible to lose 2 cm's in early 40s? My cousin said he used to measure 192 cm, but during his last doctors appointment he measured 190 cm. He tried to stand as tall as possible, but he couldn't get over the 190 mark. He's been fairly large since mid 20s, his weight ranged from 240 to 280lbs (he's been on more acceptable 230 lbs for a couple of years now), and he had a neck vertebrae surgery.

On a similar note, who shall I visit to check if I've developed scoliosis (or any other -sis)? Physiotheraphist, chiropractor or someone else?

@Sandy Cowell i doubt it Sandy French guy has always made stupid comments like that hes pathetic, ignore him hes just trolling you all and hes no where near 6ft, its obvious he isnt because no one will NEVER feel short at that height, if you ask my opinion hes probably more like 5ft 6 or 5ft 7 possibly even shorter!

I think he is a very insecure guy and hes jealous of real 6fters thats why he probably makes those idiotic and immature comments on here and posts them to seek attention from the users on here because hes a sad case, thats how i see it.

@Christian: the one thing I will say (looking back) is claiming can depend largely on the shoe you wear. I've noticed a few times I get the legit 6'5" guy who is a solid 6'5" and cleanly edged me especially if I'm in a casual shoe more so. Then get a guy like my buddy who's your height or so and claims 6'5" or a legit 6'4" or near like my father who can appear the same as me if footwear difference. So for me claiming 6'5" (especially since I've claimed 6'4" for this long now). So I concur depending on footwear I could prob claim either way. But since there no positives to claiming up didn't see the reason to

Agreed. This is the same reason why my claim is more modest when I wear thin footwear like canvas shoes or slip-on loafers. I claim 6'6" when I'm in thick shoes like boots or basketball sneaks.

@Mastermind: from your June 8th post I wasn't doubting you. I hadn't read all the way through and seen where you gave your height. My apologies if it came out that way. I believe you're a full 6'6". What I was saying was after you mentioned it I believed you were as well and that I had underestimated it. I commend you as well for being so honest!

6'1-6'1.5 Guy said on 19/Jun/17
You know, guys, any height in the real world that attracts attention is simply meaningless.
6'4 "and higher (in the real world) is unnecessary and completely useless height, because you are not on the basketball court, where very high growth (193 cm +) is an advantage.
6'3 "is the height limit, anything higher is not aesthetic and looks ridiculous (sorry, who offended).
193 cm and above - this is exactly the growth when a person attracts the attention of most people, he really stands out.
Such people often hear, "Wow, you are so tall. How much are you tall? ".
For me, the aesthetics of growth and beauty are 6'1" and 6'2". You are tall, certainly. You are not too tall, you are not an overgrown .You are without an overabundance of height.

Nobody will point a finger at you and so on.
Your height is perfect.
I repeat: 6'4 "+ makes sense only in sports (basketball, volleyball) and nowhere else.
P.S. I am convinced that 6'1-6'2 "is the most desirable height for 88-91% of the men of this planet.
c-mo said on 19/Jun/17
5'11 is a better height than 6'5 overall anyway

yes it is French guy . 180cm is plenty tall enough and looks very aesthetic . women also like 5'11 men a lot I noticed . it is not short at all and not "too tall" either but at the same time on the higher end of average or above average in many places even .

6'5 is good and can look great if you are joe manganiello or something lol but it is too tall but yeah since being taller is seen better as short and since it is not extraordinary tall either and has its own advantages 6'5 is (can be) still a good height

but the only things that a 6'5 has a benefit over a 5'11 is that really tall women like 5'9+ and heels will in general prefer that height . and that he has better chances making a basketball career . on the flipside he will turn crazy by all the "do you play basketball" questions by random people . will have it harder to find clothes . will likely bump his head on objects and will have trouble with certain busses/cars etc. will make short and even average height people look like kids next to him and stick out like a sore thumb often .

5'11 for the win . well proportioned and mesomorphic 6'0-6'1 for the ultimate win above every other height
G 5'11 said on 19/Jun/17
@Lak a weak 5'11 is someone who wakes up at the mark and drops below it through the day, so let's say one 5'11 guy might wake up 5'11.5 and go down to 11 flat or .75 at his lowest, he can still claim the mark but he would be classified as a weak 5'11. Also another guy can wake up 5'11ish and go down to 5'10.5 or even 5'10.25ish at his lowest he would also be a weak 5'11 or any height that the person drops below x mark is usually called weak.

@ Sandy Cowell - Hi!

Yes we may find out! - one day soon!

You were right to point out the mistakes made by the French guy! There is nothing wrong in anybody striving to improve themselves, I suppose his English isn't bad overall and I am sure you would agree, but I don't think he's much cop with human height though!
Canson said on 18/Jun/17
@Christian: lol! That's the worst when someone not only lies but tries to convince you that you're not what you claim. That's what frustrates me even more when they do that. Saddest part is if you were 6'7-6'7.5 barefoot you probably wouldn't have fit under the doorway in shoes lol! Yea you were generous too there because you gave him 6'2" and even in your case even if people didnt claim shoes I can see you getting 6'5 from maybe 1/3 6'5 1/2 or change from another 1/3 then 6'6 from another 1/3. Im referring to people around your height maybe plus or minus 2-3". Only reason I have it in 1/3s is because you would get someone like me or Bobby or Ali Baba SJH Mid190s that will use a measurement around our lowest or only slightly above that would see you as a strong 6'5" then you'd get the Morning measures that measure an hour out of bed at say 6'3 5/8 etc and call you 6'6 since they believe they're 6'4". My issue with the latter is that all of the rounding causes everyone else to be thrown off as say the difference in height were closer to 1.5" instead of 2 then they're calling you an entire inch taller than you really are and not just at a morning height. I think rounding is cool but my opinion is if that far away 3/8" or 1/2" they should specify it especially when assessing someone else's height. In your post on the other page where you said 6'5 5/8 on the stadiometer was that with the deviation Rob mentioned? He said there's a 1/8" deviation? But in reality it sounds pretty accurate a measurement for you since you wake up at 198.3 as that's near 1/2 after 2.5 hours.

Thanks for the response guys. Anyways i feel like 183.5cm is a pretty weird height sometimes. In my country, Malaysia, I feel tall most of the time. But i still remember when i was in Australia few years ago and i felt average and sometimes below average! some strong 6 footers look solid tall and some look like normal height. I think it depends on the body structure too.

@Editor Rob, I have a friend who's 5'10 but he weighs about 145lbs. Is that too thin for someone of his height? He looks scary thin, and I worry if he doesn't put on any muscle mass, he might run into health problems.
Editor Rob: might depend on his body shape. It's certainly a quite slim weight for 5ft 10.
Bobby said on 18/Jun/17
@Lak, I'm similar to G 5'11, as I am also classified a weak 5'10, though my best morning height from what I've measured is bang on 5'10.5. Personally, I don't call myself a weak 5'10 guy, I just call myself a 5'10 guy. Who's gonna care? Especially if I measure that range for most of the day. He just means to say that if you measure 5'10.5 or 5'10.75, you're a weak 5'11. My best morning height of 5'10.5 is a strong 5'10, and a weak 5'11 for instance.

@Canson

I had a similar situation to yours too. I was once attending a local church picnic last year, and there's this guy that I knew from a long time ago (was never really close though). He's a college student currently attending to a university in Florida. Anyways, he was pretty tall, about 4" shorter than me (6'1"-6'1.5" range), so I asked him "How tall are you, about 6'2?" Mind you that I already knew inside he's no more than 6'1.5", but asked him if he was 6'2" because I know many people tend to round up their heights plus I wanted to be a bit generous. And he replied "No I'm 6'3" or 6'3.5"." I immediately called him out for it by saying, "I'm 6'5.5" and I'm about 4 inches taller than you, so you must only be about 6'1.5"." But not only he was adamant and again claimed 6'3", but he also insisted that I was 6'7" or 6'7.5" and I was mismeasuring myself . I just left him alone at that point, because it wasn't worth it to keep on debating about height with people like him.

@Mastermind: be thankful tho that you aren't 6'8" like your brother although I can imagine the feeling as I hit 6'6" with dress shoes or boots in the morning myself when I'm going to work typically unless in casual and have a friend 196.4 cm I think at his low plus 6'6 and 6'7. The latter hate it but both have good shapes at least and workout. The 6'7" guy went to high school and college with me and we played ball together (he's a few years older though) and has always been in tip top shape and looks damn impressive for his size (like a more lean Undertaker almost with good posture and little fat). He actually pulls women when all the guys hang out lol. The 6'6" one is in good shape too. the funniest thing about the three of them (the 6'6 and 6'5 grew up together too) along with my 6'3" friend and 5'10 friend who are the elders of the group none of us lie about our heights and the taller guys the 6'6 and especially the 6'7 and 6'3 will call people out that lie about it. Another former teammate of mine who is 197 range (looks a fraction taller than my 6'5 friend and a fraction shorter than the 6'6) still to this day claims 6'7" like he was listed in basketball and calls the one guy 6'8" and me 6'6". We were listed 6'6, 6'7, 6'8 when we played. before he corrects him and says you mean 6'7 and 6'4 and tells him he's 6'5/6'6 lol. And says "he would trade heights with him" if he could which says a lot being he's very tall himself.
Canson said on 16/Jun/17
@Christian: by average that way yes. But since you lose so much of it in the first couple hours I'm more comfortable claiming what I measure most frequently. The Guinness book of world records would have all of us around rob's method since it's 3 measurements within 8 hours. I doubt we'd have our lowest but same time it's much closer than an eye opener. I say that because 8 hours would likely mean that the first would come after you've been awake an hour or so for something like that. Which would mean I'd prob be at 6'4.75 or 5/8 for the first then 193.9 for the last. If I started after 2 hours I'd come out around 194.2 if spread out 4 hours each. If after 1 hour 194.3-.4. I measure 6'4.75 after 1 hour but I agree with rob and his method of 5 hours (actually saw 7-8 online by a doctor before). The other problem I get into is that others who may be a touch over 6'5 at their lowest like a friend your size still claims 6'5" (he's somewher around 196.3 normally in the early evening but don't know his morning (presumably 198 range) and it's gonna be well if you're 6'5 he must be 6'6 or if he's 6'5 you're 6'4" and that kinda frustrates me when people do it to me as is so I just go ahead and take that step myself and just claim 6'4 or 6'4 1/2. Now Whether I claim 6'4 or 6'4.5 is debatable and usually dictated at least going forward with what shoe I wear. If in flats or a casual shoe I may just go with a little over 6'4 or 6'4. Sneaks I'll say 6'4.5.nothing wrong with 6'5 but The thing for me is I'm content with 6'4" and have become accustomed to it now not to mention I wear casual shoes mostly and a proper 6'4 unless they're also in casuals usually comes out identical (my father is an example where if he's in dress shoes or maybe running shoes or trainers and I'm in casual shoes) we are identical. He's maybe a full 6'4" or 6'3.75 but no lower. And since most people know me by 6'4" or 6'4.5 I don't see a need at this point to change it being a full grown adult for many years. I don't see a benefit that I gain really more psychological for some people that do it. I see why you do it because most claim shoes around you or lie but for me I just claim what I do and those who lie or try to get me to I just don't hang around them. I've actually walked away from a few people that do that (more so if they stop me and ask me and I tell them 3 or 4 times). Funniest was when a guy shorter than me (had to be 6'3.5-6'4) says he's 6'5. He had a footwear advantage and was still shorter. Then he said I was 6'5.5-6'6. Of course everyone else in our area knew me and knows how tall I am and luckily a friend who's 6'3 and another at 6'0" stood up in front of him and called him on it before he brought up well in shoes in this and that so you must be this. I said shoes aren't part of my body and I finally just nicely walked away from him. He wasn't but 1/2" taller if even that than my 6'3" friend as he was also in sneaks. Everyone else even said it and about 1/2" or so shorter than me as well

@Bobby 183.5cm I know I'm not 6'2, but you would be considered tall, assuming almost 184cm at night or even noon. However not as tall as the 6'2 guys, shorter people will most likely guess you to be taller then 183 cm range. You are def not short nor average, if that's what you are wondering lol.

You know, it's a very tough angle to guess height. You two look similar from this angle so if the other guy is 174 cm and you are 6ft, I guess I judged off your friend. At least I like to think so ;)) As for the new ones, I don't know. If you say 6ft I believe.

You're average height between morning and night is 194.9 (195.8 + 193.9 Γ· 2 = 194.85). So by following Christian's logic of claiming your average height, you should have no problem claiming "almost 6'5"" since 6'4.75" is about 194.9

Rob is it possible for men not to lose any height until they turn 80 some men can reach 60 and 70 and not lose any height at all how is that possible.
Editor Rob: it is very unlikely to hit 80 without any measurable loss, but hitting 60 without loss is quite possible...it's just rarer than losing a fraction.

How could it be possible?

Good genetics, regular exercise and especially spine/back movememnts to keep active...ensuring you eat well and get nutrients.

It will be interesting to see my own height loss with age.

@ Josh

I don't think that people should have an opinion on how tall they think someone is based on how they compare to their own height, people must judge how tall someone is based solely on how tall they are in comparison to all other members of their own gender in the population. Yes you can take self reported height statistics with a pinch of salt because some people lie about their height. Even measured statistics aren't accurate unless they are taken at the right time in the afternoon.

The thing is, all these comments have been removed from this page but the discussion about Emma rumbles on.

@Editor Rob

The shorter man claims to be 6'0 while the taller one claims to be 6'3. What are your thoughts? It looks like more than a 3 inch difference to me!

Assuming the taller one is 6'3, then what is the shorter one. 5'10.5?
Canson said on 14/Jun/17
@Christian: you prob would still be around a full 6'6" (198.1) if not quite as active or shorter torso. But I concur with Christian 196.5 I am roughly an inch shorter than he is (193.9cm at my normal low) and lose almost the exact same as him and am almost the same out of bed and nighttime range just one inch less but have a 35" inseam which is about normal but don't have a super long torso either it's about proportionate for my height. The most I've lost in a day to memory is 2.7 cm bringing me from 195.8 to 193.1 which is an inch after a longer day when I've been on my feet all day. As far as average goes it's more like 198.3 for you probably as an afternoon height but what you claim is prob fair enough tho (you lose the bulk of it in the first hour is why I mentioned). I usually am 194.9 (6'4 3/4) after I've been up an hour and usually am about 1/2" after 2 hours
MasterMind said on 14/Jun/17
@Christian

My lowest is 198.3...i don't loose height that much. Over day, while i don't have any work, while i am fully relaxed...i manage to maintain height close to 199 cm. My older brother is 6'8 - 203 cm and he has back problems and can loose his height that much that we are almost the same height. But also, he is gaining in the morning about 2 cm + shoes...make him around 6'10.
Personally, i don't like my heigh at all... If i could choose, i would pick 188 cm over 198 any day..
Canary said on 14/Jun/17
I hope that Rob posts THIS message, especially since he posts duplications and insults from time to time. It's hard to make universal height charts because there is so much variation in the world. For instance, an ordinary Dutch younger woman will tower an ordinary younger woman from a developing country. The height difference is close to a foot in a few instances!

@I'm 171 cm: You're a tad short. You're around the same height as an ordinary Asian American younger man and an ordinary Latin American younger man. You're close to average for all men, though. You certainly won't stand out in a crowd.

Rob would 145 pounds the mid half 140s be too thin for 5ft 8in men when the last time you were 145 pounds anything between 159 pounds and 162 pounds is Ideal for 5ft 8in men anything 165 pounds and over is a bit too much for 5ft 8n men unless they have a lot of muscle mass like a middle weight boxer.
Editor Rob: many men at that height will weigh that range, it is certainly a slim weight...if you have a narrow body frame, it might be a good range.

@Mastermind. I like yourself am bang on 200cm tall out of bed. After a 16 hour day my absolute lowest is 197.8cm. That gives an average of 198.9cm or around 6'6.25". This is what I claim , as a matter of interest what is your low? I have a friend who gets out of bed at 6'10" and ends the day at 6'9", loosing a full inch, some people think when your this tall you loose more but a few very tall guys I know i.e. Over 6'5" don't tend to loose more than an inch at the very most.

------

You're right. I think that spine length has a stronger correlation to height loss than height itself. I'm over 6'5" but I have a torso the length of a 5'11" guy, hence why I only lose roughly 3/4" (1.9cm) over the day. If I had a longer torso, I would probably lose 2.2cm (7/8") like you.

@179cm

Yes 181 cm is around the 50th percentile here but on a daily basis a man who is say 176cm won't feel that short against a guy like that. 5cm isn't really enough to feel that short next to anyone, in my opinion that starts around 7-8 cm.

Ofc like I said 176 cm for me starts the average range here so at times a guy like that will feel short. I just think we overthink the average range and have too many sub categories such as above average/under average. In reality a 176 guy looks pretty normal next to a 183 cm guy which for me ends the average range.

So 176 can be under average and 183 above average but standing next to a 181 cm guy its barely noticeable especially in the case of a 183 cm guy.



@Nik

I can understand that, Rob has said that the average is more 5'9" in the UK so a good 2 inches shorter makes all the difference.

In that case I would argue that 5'7.25"-5'10" is average range in the UK. Ofc one is under average/can feel short while the other is high average and can feel tallish at times.
Sam said on 14/Jun/17
I think 5'11 guys get the benefit of being average and tall at the same time because they still blend in so well with the average but also being above average even though not technically tall. Average height guys in my area in the UK is 5'8-5'10 most typically.

I'll use the UK as an example since I think most people are going by UK average, or the US which is similar. According to the percentile calculator:

5'3" - 2nd percentile (short)
5'4" - 4th percentile (kinda short)
5'5" - 8th percentile (kinda short)
5'6" - 15th percentile (kinda short)
5'7" - 25th percentile (below average)
5'8" - 37th percentile (below average)
5'9" - 50th percentile (average)
5'10" - 63rd percentile (above average)
5'11" - 75th percentile (above average)
6'0" - 85th percentile (kinda tall)
6'1" - 91st percentile (kinda tall)
6'2" - 96th percentile (kinda tall)
6'3" - 98th percentile (tall)
6'4" - 99th percentile (tall)
6'5" - 99th percentile (tall)
6'6" - 99.9th percentile (start of extremely tall)

you have to take in account that the average height in UK or Germany Includes all ethnicities:(White , Black , Asian , Arab and Hispanic..) may be the the average height of white race around 1--1.5 inches taller than the average height of whole ethnicities. so if all races 175 cm then the white would be about (177-179 cm) range.

I agree with you, officialy 5'5 and 5'6 is a normal Short height which you see daily, but of course some People view it as very short, when they are very tall...

I live in Germany. The average in germany is 178cm overall and about 180cm for the younger Generation, But you have to consider that its mostly self reported and if measured they measure people more in the Morning, thats what people forget here.
The official statistic in Germany says that 9% of Men are between 164cm and 169cm which i consider as the short range while 19,2 % are between 170cm and 174cm that would be under average range and everything between 175cm and 180cm is bang on average!

Very Short starts when you are in the bottom 3% of heights, so in Germany that would be under 164cm.

I am from England! My country is one of the taller countries in the world but the average height in my country is less than what it is in many other European countries. Height is diverse in the UK in my opinion and there are a lot of small people about but also a llot of tall people nowadays too! I would say the average height is less than what the majority of people think it is, I think that is true in many other countries as well, I think the average for men is probably between 5'8.75" and 5'9.1" in the UK.
Your views aren't wrong and I respect them, the situation is different in every country!

@Johan

Ah I see, you're from an exceptionally tall country. I guess that most people are thinking of the UK/USA. The percentile calculator that the user 5'8.75" posted a link to is very good. So you've actually been a bit generous in saying that 176-180cm is average height in the Netherlands - 181cm is right at the 50th percentile. At 179cm I would be 'below average' at only the 39.4th percentile.

Average height is only a little over 5'9" in the UK/USA actually. Therefore, 176cm-180cm is above average.

Actually, according to this calculator Bosnia/Herzegovina is the tallest - 50th percentile is 184cm! France is less than the UK/USA at 174cm

@ ReallyShortRussianDude

I agree with you that 5'5" is a typical "short" height and that it is not "very short".

I am in the 53rd percentile for male height. That means I am taller than 53% of males in the U.K. I am 179.7 cm tall. Only 3% of males who are taller than average are shorter than me. I wish that number was around 8%at least."

That site doesn't seem exactly reliable. I don't believe that average German is 175 cm tall while average Serbian is 182 cm tall. Come on..

@ ma

Most of this I think is realistic although I would have things a little bit different, that doesn't mean one of us is right and the other one wrong!
However I am amazed that you have all men 5'4" and under as dwarfs, I also think that the 5'5" - 5'7" range aptly describes short men rather than very short men. However I am not sure whether 5'7".- 5'8" for men is short or shortish!

5'3 and less = Short af/freak
5'4 and 5'5 = very short
5'6 and 5'7 = short

5'9 and 5'10 = pretty much average
5'11 = high average
6'0 to 6'2 = tall
6'3 to 6'5 = very tall
6'6 to 6'8 = "super" tall/giant to most people
over 6'9 = freak.

For me it depends on where I am, or what group of friends I am hanging out with in order for me to feel a bit short, or tallish, or even average. I live in the U.S and I will say at a weak 5'11, I feel slightly tallish in public, only a few times will I feel short if there are a lot of 6'0+ guys around. Or if I am with my really tall friends, but obviously I don't feel short in general.

@5'8.75

6'0 being tall or not depends where you live, because that 85th percentile stat factors in a big portion of asians/hispanics and elderly people. For 20-39yo white men 6'0 is only 74th percentile which is only above average and not tall, because it's well within a standard deviation (

I find it hard to believe that 5'5 qualifies as very small or short tbh it's a typical short height, very short to me is 5'3 & under.

5'2" or less extremely small

5'3"-5'5" very small

5'6" - 5'8" small

5'9"-5'11" average

6'0"-6'2" tall

6'3"-6'5" very tall

6'6" or more extremely tall

------

How is 5'8" small? It's the world male average height. At first, I thought your chart was from a Dutch perspective (sure, 5'8" is quite short for a Dutchman), but it's probably not, since you included 6'3" in the "very tall" category. A 6'3" guy in the Netherlands is only about 3 inches taller than the average male population, so he shouldn't be called "very tall". That's the equivalent of a 6'0" guy in the US being called "very tall". 6'3" in US may be very tall, but not in the Netherlands.

that's absolutely not true 6'0 is 85 percentile which is considered tall.

If 5'6 is just below my eyebrows how tall am I?
Any help appreciated thanks :)"

sorry I thought you said "just below eye level" :) , so let me correct my estimate: somewhere around 5'10 mark.

I don't agree with all of Johan's height chart. The start of dwarfism seems to be a bone of contention with some. For the record, an advocacy group for little people claims that it starts at 4'10 for both men and women. I would start it at 4'8 for women while I might start it at 5'0 for men since men are taller than women.

@ Sandy Cowell

I have gone back to have a look at those comments from Warrior and Emma, and I have found out that they have gone! I thought that there were 5 identical comments from Warrior, and 5 comments from Emma too, but I thought that 3 of Emma's were the same as each other and the remaining 2 of Emma's were slightly different,
I didn't see this comment until just now, I think it was buried under all of today's and maybe Rob put it on after he had published some of today's comments!

Off topic, Ihave got to say that I get apposed and opposed mixed up! On topic, there may be one example of a smaller and shorter man in a heteerosexual relationship that I can think of, but I am not sure. There is a couple I am thinking of where there is a man thinner than his female partner but they are very close in height so I am not sure who is the tallest'

When it comes to making height charts you guys have to state in which country you live in or else it's pointless. 183 cm might be tall in U.K but average in the Netherlands where Johan is from for instance.
Btw @Nik where in U.K are you exactly from?

I Wonder if any of you have had the same experience as me. Since I was measured in the military at 6 ft barefoot and also later by others at 6 ft I have honestly believed that this was my proper height. How ever I did remember that I was measured at 5 ft 11. 25 at age 15, and always didn't I would grow After this. Anyways, I measured myself again, with a book this time and guess what. I clock in at 181,8. Several tries, but still the same result, not Even 6 ft in the morning. Every person that look exactly my height most of the time claims 6 ft so this puzzles me. Do you think most ppl aren't measured with a book on the head and therefore are really slightly shorter than they claim, however unknowingly? It would be interesting to know if any of you have had the same experience

@ Johan

A man of 5'0" is not a dwarf in my opinion and neither is a man of 4'9". I also don't agree that 5'5" or 5'6" are very short, just a classic short. Also you reckon that 5'8.5" - 5'9" is in the short range, it is pretty average to me and there is no way that average stretches all the way up to 6'0", including heights between 5'11" and 6'0". I certainly think that 5'10.5' and even 5'10" are above average for me.

There is nothing wrong in you stating your opinion though!


I respect your opinion Nik but statistics is what I base my chart on. I would say a ΓΉan who measures in at 4'9" would be described thus almost everywhere in the western world, thats an entire foot under any average man even those at the lower end of average. The other end would be a man who is 6'9-6'10" which I am sure many would agree is a giant person.

Again 5'5" is like 6-7 inches under average male height in my country, you get towered at that height and many would say more than just very short.

A man who measures in at 6'0" (182.9 cm) is just 1.4cm over average here. He wouldn't look any different than the average guy. Now a guy who is a strong 6', say 184 cm they are almost 3 cm over which is more noticeable but again more above average than proper tall.

Do you live in a shorter country Nik? Many studies in Europe show the average guy to be 5'10" which is a smidge more than the 5'9.5" reported by the US.
