It's very much personal preference and gloves fit all over the map. There are tighter fitting gloves (like Bauer Supremer) and loose fitting gloves (like Bauer 4-Roll) and in between (like Bauer Vapor). I would try on everything and then get the glove that feels the most comfortable in the store. Also, if your glove has leather palms and gussets (the part that connects the palm of the glove to the hard shell), it might loosen up after a few uses, so take that into consideration.

For what it's worth, I'm 5'8 and use 12" 4-roll gloves that fit a little loose especially after breaking in. The 13" gloves fit great in the store but they were huge after a month, so I went down a size. But I also have 13" Supreme gloves that fit tighter and didn't break in much at all because they are made of more synthetic materials.
