 Who is really tall or just overall large person (not short and fat) I'm talking like over 6'3 or more (I consider 6'2 average for a man because that's how we grow them in my family haha).

Joe and I went out last night and ran across a friend of ours I hadn't seen in awhile and I forgot how tall he was...he wears a 42/40 in jeans!! Can you imagine a 40 length?  I do know him and Joe wear the same size shirt because of their long arm length and long body length..because we used to fight over the shirts that a local western store carried. 

His nickname is sasquatch....hahaha

    My BIL is 6'4" but skinny as a rail - he weighs 140-150!  I'm not sure of his exact size but he's extremely thin a though he has pit on a bit of weight now that he's in his mid-40s.

    Well, I guess I think of folks being on the shorter side of things ... My dh is 5/7 on a good day ... I am 5/7 !! But seems that I am a bit taller then he is.. I think 6 foot is average but 5/9 is probably all my two oldest wi be my youngest may top out at 5/11 6 foot!! 😄
