Your fine. Markus Skentenberg (sp?) is rumored to be 6'4" and is one of the most successful male models of our time. However, agencies list him at 6'3", I believe he said in a interview he is actually 6 foot 4.
For Print work, height is not too much of a problem if you have a great look and wordrobe can work with you.
For Runway work, 6'2" is the normal maximum safe range so you can fit in anything they will have on the show rack-- but again exceptions can be made for exceptional talent.
It's best to be around 6' maybe 6'1 a 40 regular jacket and say 30-32 waist
6'3" isnt too tall but it will most likely prevent you from getting SOME fashion bookings- most companies make a 40 reg as a sample size and short sleeves and pants are well, untill designer Tom Brown came along, not going to be acceptable.
I am 6'3" weigh 185-190lbs, 42-44LONG 32 waist and have lost a campaign in Milan, almost been replaced after being flown over from NYC to Vienna etc all because of short clothes and those are just the ones I knew about- wonder how many just didnt consider me after seeing my sizes.
but 6'3" looks great in a bathing suit/underwear etc
During Fashion week, LA,NY Everybody in line is the same height.
During cattle calls or go sees everyone is the same height.
During bookings some times the chicks are taller then me. with heels.
Standard is any where from 5,10" male print models- 6,2" run way models.
Some guys that are taller definately stick out in line when the client passes you in the line.
Otherwise were flat shoes. Your fine.

there should be a law barring the mention of Kate Moss as an example for short girls and well Markus Shenkenberg was very handsome with an adonis physisque and perhaps the last male super model - s dont drag his name into this either
Sample sizes are 40 regular and designers usually dont have much flexibility in sizes and guys are 5 cents a dozen anyway- much easier to find the model to fit the clothes than the clothes to fit the model.
