For reference, I was wearing Bauer One55 in large and they fit fine while the Jofas in size 5 are just a hair big.

I'm 5'8 200 but have giant forearms. Everything else I'm in mediums.

Also the longer forearm means that you will have to be wary of cuff length on the gloves. I alternate between 12" TPS 4-rolls and 13" Warrior Koncepts and with 13" gloves I have to make sure the elbows are pushed back a bit otherwise they will smack into each other. Again, probably a function of being short. At 6' you probably won't have an issue unless you rock Ryan Smyth pro stocks or something.
Yeah, at 6' tall and using fairly small cuffed Vapor gloves it's never a problem. Still contemplating the Moller elbows, but I've never before bought gear without being able to try it on first (I always buy from a LHS), so I'm hesitant.
