I've seen references which say armpit height, some say bottom of your sternum. One said your elbow should be at 90 degrees when gripping it.
I think it's more of a user's choice. Whatever is comfortable.

I would say don't worry about what "other" people suggest for the size of a stick.
get a six footer and walk around with it for a few days, weeks, or months.
THEN - you will know where your hand normally is for your comfort and how tall YOU would like for it to be.
and there you have it - perfectly sized stick for YOU.
