Hi,

 

I paid a visit to address referred in Fran's message and came across this expression:

 

"six foot five inches"

 

I am not familiar with that. Some time ago I was listening to Men at Work's song "Land Down Under" and heard a similar expression "He was six foot four and full of muscles". What does that mean ("six foot four", "six foot five inches")?

 

Thank you fellows!
