Mines 6ft and I'm only 5'7 in height?
What do you think?

It's a general proportion, you may have longer arms, longer fingers, broad shoulders, etc. Height and armspan are rarely exactly equal.
Keep in mind, that's 5 inches more total, which pretty much means that you've got 2.5 on each side that is "extra."
"Normal" human proportions can be measured approximately using the height of the head from the chin to the top as a basic unit. Going by this, here's what is typical:
Head = one head (obviously)
Arms = 2 heads each from shoulder to wrist
Body = 2 heads from shoulder to groin
Legs = 4 heads each from groin to ankle
Feet = one head long each
Neck = 1/2 head
Hands = 2/3 head each
In addition, shoulders are usually 3 head widths across.
My arms are slightly longer than what they "should" be, and my shoulders are a bit narrow.
