    5'10 3/4" (5'11"+ with shoes on[​IMG] )

    134 lbs (on the scale with just the briefs on)

    138 lbs (on the scale dressed)

    36R in suits

    15 x 33.5 in shirts (I have to settle for 15 x 34)

    I am 25 now and still have yet to gain a pound from high school. Although I could stand to gain a few pounds, I would rather be too thin then too fat. I just hope I don't acquire a spare tire.

    I was like that... Just wait until you are thirty. These days, keeping my waist at 31 while keeping a fair bit of upper body strength requires that I keep to my exercise regime.

    I am about a 1/4 inch shy of 6' 2". Wear a 44L, weigh about 200 lbs when I am working a lot because I think I just naturally have a very thick build.

    In terms of the growth thing, I have a two younger brothers- one is actually taller than me and one is much shorter. The youngest one was in a bad accident when he was about 14 and had to take some serious steriods among other things just to recover and get out of the ICU. He basically has not grown much since then and is probably the shortest in the family. Sort of a random story-- point was just that a lot of different factors seem to affect growth.

    6'4", 235ish. 220-225 would be a good weight for me but any less would probably be unhealthy. I'm not skinny even when I'm skinny.

    My father is 6'7" (prob 320 lbs!) and I've two brothers at 6'7" and 6'5". I'm the short guy in the family so I've never felt especially tall.

    Sounds like we are roughly the same size. Please let me know the next time you are thinning out your closet. I think I could find lots of great items in my size.

    5' 11" of twisted steel and sex appeal. I wish I was 6' 2". For some reason, that seems like a cool height.

    Not that I'm that tall but when I go to a movie or concert I can usually see over the people in front of me. That is, until the asshole that's 6'2" sits / stands right in front of me.

    Every f@#*ing concert, without fail.

    Dude with cool height here: 6'2" leaning toward 6'3". It's weird though, in the US I felt relatively tall but here in northern Germany I'm just average[​IMG]
    Too much viking heritage in the area I guess (I'm blond and currently grow a full beard...).

    Oh, I'm 18 and weigh 180 pounds.

    Upside to that is that around here the height is not much of a problem because a while ago they increased the height of the "standardized" german they design things for. [​IMG]

    I'm 6'4". I started high school as one of the shorter kids in school and I left as the tallest Between the ages of 15 and 17 I grew a total of 9". My body never really filled out until I was in my mid twenties. No matter how much I worked out I couldn't bulk up. Unfortunately, now that I am in my mid-thirties I am still filling out, just not in the ways I'd like.

    As for the perfect height, Since my NBA career never panned out I actually wish I was an inch or 2 shorter. As it is now, it is difficult to find shirts that fit, rides on airplanes are usually uncomfortable and so on.


    6'4" as well.....i concur with your sentiments
