closet shelf height

Is there a standard closet shelf height? I was thinking 72". Thoughts?

There is no rule on shelf height.
Make the height comfortable for your use.

Consider double hanging at two heights... 40" and 36" depending on your jacket [etc] length and pants length
Then one for long hanging at 66"
As we are all made at different heights.....hanging space is an individual choice.
