    Chest measurements maybe.

    I would consider 22+ inches wide from the front as being wide at average height.

    Still all subjective.

    It's more to do with waist to shoulder ratio than any static number.

    As someone already stated it's all about the illusion, it doesn't matter how wide your shoulders are, if you have a huge waist it won't look aesthetic



    You want the X shape OP, always remember young pad'wan

    But having said that 49'' should look fawkin joocy on a 5'6 frame

    Pros are around 24 inches. Check this article out:

    http://www.t-nation.com/free_online_...lman_shoulders

    That horizontal measurement (which includes both deltoids), in inches and fractions of inches, is your shoulder width.

    The average man in the United States is 5-foot 10-inches tal, and weighs 172 pounds. His shoulder width is 18-1/4 inches.

    Using that as a starting number, if your shoulder width is approximately 18-1/4 inches . . . then, your shoulder width is AVERAGE or NORMAL.

    A little bit goes a long way in shoulder width . . . 20-inch-wide shoulders look significantly broader than average shoulders; 21-inch shoulders will get plenty of attention; 22-inch shoulders will draw stares from almost everyone; 23-inch shoulders are super heroic and will get you a ticket on the front row of Mr. Olympia contests; and 24-inch shoulders are as rare as a 500-pound overhead press.

    Wide shoulders stand out, no matter the waist size. You can have a tiny waist and average shoulders, but they will still look small compared to someone with real width.

    Maybe it has to do with the size of your head vs the size of each side of your neck to shoulder cap? like if you took your head off and rested it on your traps if your head is longer you got narrow shoulders, if your head is shorter than that length you got broad shoulders. o_o

    thafukk, i dont believe that or else I have some lucky genetics. granted im around 20% BF (yes fat, 290lbs a year ago) but currently at 38" waist and 56" all the way around shoulders. i think the ratio thing posted above makes more sense.
