I'm 6'2" with a 34 inch inseam and I have 2 58cm bikes and a 57.5 AND a 60, and the 60 is too big. You can put a short little stem on it but that affects the handling in not great ways.

Standover height is a terrible way to size frames though, so discard that notion. You're not experienced enough to know whether what you're feeling now will be what you're feeling in 12 months but... that's all you have to go on.
