So, how tall are you?
I am as close to 6' as one can possibly be without being 6' tall.
I think your poll is a little skewed towards the tall--isn't 5'9" average for guys? Or at least, that's what I keep telling myself. On a good day I'm a bit more than 5'7".
They say that 5'9 is average for us, but very few of my friends are shorter than 6'. I chose a distribution that seemed appropriate for the people I know. We'll see how it goes.
it would be interesting to see a correlation of this and board member nationality.
Closer to 5'9" than 5'10. I think that with the average suit size and the most common size found on eBay being a 40 that these numbers indicate average.
I know that many sample suits from suppliers are 40. (50 European)
I heard the average is rising quite a bit, I'm right about 6'1, perhaps a little taller.
I'm 6' 1". Just on the verge of being to tall for some XL shirts. Really have to watch putting things in the dryer.
Actually, I believe height is stagnant in the US, and rising in Europe. Â One country (Netherlands, I believe) is supposed to have an average male height over 6 feet tall. Â I'm not sure if that is all men, or the youngest adult age bracket. Â Again, this is from memory from an article somewhere last year.
Wow. Based on the results of the poll at the time I'm posting this, there appears to be a strong inverse correlation between height and sense of style...
Wow. After that crack, I wasn't sure I should answer the poll. I'm 6'3". But I don't claim to have a sense of style.
5' 10 3/4". But I'm vain, and say 5'11". Weight fluctuates between 165 and 170 lbs. I'd say I am average for my generation (I'm 30), but my youngest brother (21), and his friends are nearly all taller than I am - all ethnicities.
Fit a 50 EU Perfectly in nearly all European brands, so sample sales are grat for me.
5'9" and 145 lbs of pure fighting Irish machine. Heh heh.
I'm 6'2", which I understand to be the average for Dutch men nowadays (and my last name and a fraction of my ethnic heritage are Dutch).
I always thought that the average for U.S. men was 5'11", not 5'9".
i'm just like LA guy...5' 10 3/4", but i say that I'm 5'11" as well.
6' 2" and barrel-chested.
Separate names with a comma.
