I disagree with those who claim that he looks much lower than 175cm in Kingsman. I've seen the 4k version a few times, and with big sneakers compared to Firth's Oxfords, he actually looks closer to 178cm.
If Harrington is 170cm, then I see 175cm max for Taron:
Here with slight footwear advantage, he doesn't appear more than 6cm taller than Kit: Click Here
Similar footwear, he appears no more than 5cm taller: Click Here
A safe bet for Taron is 175cm, pretty much exactly the same as Hardy. We've all seen the Legend shots of them together. It's worth noting that Taron usually has better posture than Hardy, but when Hardy actually stands up straight, he appears to edge out Taron: Click Here
Anyone who claims that Taron is below 175cm needs to be consistent and downgrade Hardy too. There's probably no more than 1cm between these two, though I think that Hardy is the one likelier to hit 176cm.

Very interesting Rob I had him comfortably in the 5'8" range. Who do you think would be taller? Hardy or Egerton?
Editor Rob: they probably are very similar range if measured. Last film I seen Taron in was that Eddie the Eagle, he is a decent actor.

Huh wasnt he listed at 5 8 flat?
Ive only seen him in one movie kingsman and in big heels he was under 5 9.
Did they make him look smaller, I dont think so.
He looked even 5 7 next to Firth and Thewlis different movies.
Also looked at least an inch under hardy in stills have yet to see KRAY/KRAY.
AJ said on 18/Nov/16
Looking at him the max he could be is 5'9" flat anything over is generous.
Ali said on 16/Aug/16
Just to add to the conversation is that before he became famous from kingsman he was listed as 1.73m there could be some sought of truth in that no?, do you consider it lying to give your max measured height, I measure approx 1.71.75m in the mornign and about 1.70.something would it be lying to call myself 1.71 on my modelling resemay, I must add that I am a women
AJ said on 26/Jul/16
He looks somewhere btw 5'8" and 5'9" next to hugh jackman, I'll be generous and say 5'9" max.
Francis said on 9/Jun/16
on kingsman he does look 5'8
look his eye-level is way below colin's chin
a true 5'9 man would have his eyes on the same line as colin's chin
taron should be listed as 5'8 or 5'8.25 since he looks just the same as rob next to a 6'1 man
you have decreased jude law from 5'11 to 5'10
taron is much easier to decrease with no regrets
said on 1/Jun/16
He looks similar to Mark Ruffalo here, or it's just an angle? Click Here
AJ said on 18/May/16
Maybe shave a quarter inch off the listing. I'm seeing 4.5 inches atleast between him and hugh jackman.

A true 5.9 man ... in shoes.
MD said on 29/Apr/16
What makes it worse is his penchant for the fits he likes in suits. He likes thin/skinny and short fits in suit coats, and even the fit in pants he likes to wear accentuate his hips. I don't get it; they look bad on him because it's the opposite of his body type. So, he's shorter than his claim and looks even shorter because of his clothes.
/fit/ said on 26/Apr/16
he is no taller than 5'8
David said on 28/Feb/16
5.7 tops. He is a hobbit and it shows.
Bill said on 27/Feb/16
Much better listing.
caliban said on 18/Feb/16
man 5'9.5 is a joke for this guy
don't you think he is shorter than tom hardy? come on
Aaron zamora said on 31/Jan/16
He's coming out in a new movie called "Eddie the eagle" with Hugh Jackman! That would be a good movie to have a better estimate on his height. :-)
johemoth the dog said on 21/Dec/15
He was noticeably short compared to the rest of the cast in Kingsman. Would of guessed 5'8 ish.
chris141 said on 19/Nov/15
Tom Hardy looks a full inch taller than him AT LEAST, this guy is clearly 173cm at best.
MarcusTheSwede said on 10/Nov/15
Taron is about same height as Tom Hardy half cm taller maybe but this listing needs to be downgraded.
BTF87 said on 21/Sep/15
There's a picture of Taron stood next to Matthew Vaughn, and they're the exact same eight. Matthew is listed as 5'10" on IMDb. It's a full picture that shows them both from head to foot.Taron is 5'10".
Colin said on 27/Aug/15
egerton can't even reach 5ft9, how can he be listed at 5'9.5?
Mees said on 1/Aug/15
Looked just a little bit under 177 in The Kingsman, he was a notable inches shorter than Colin Firth who seems to be 184/185 nowadays.
Balrog said on 27/Jul/15
I really struggle to see him over 5'9"...
Amaze said on 23/Jul/15
I reckon this is accurate
said on 1/Jul/15
Im talking about the one where they mention he is 5'8'' that the poster Rad was talking about lol
[Editor Rob: they picked it up from another website, Taron does try to say 5ft 10 numerous times, on twitter/interviews, he may just be about 5ft 9 and calling it in shoes.]
said on 30/Jun/15
Rad can you find this interview please? I can't seem to
[Editor Rob: it's from Here
Adamz said on 30/Jun/15
lol @ 5-10 claim.
Rad said on 17/Jun/15
There is an interview where they mention he is 5'8.
said on 9/Jun/15
I think the height listed on his RADA profile is most accurate,which is 1.77m
next to Kit Harington
next to Matthew Vaughn （6’,according to IMDB）
and Sophie Cookson (5' 3½" 1.61 m)
5'9.5'' said on 15/May/15
On a side note I find it interesting that he'd give such an absurd overstatement as 5'10'' but then seem non-height aware in photos with his posture and shoes
Rod said on 10/May/15
@Cole I agree. I think most of the community is unanimous that Hardy is 5'9-5'9.5. I am pretty sure they would be within a quarter inch of each other. Both are notorious for slouching so it's pretty hard to compare the two side by side since one could be slouching more than the other.
cole said on 7/May/15
5'9-9.25 could be possible, but under that is hard to believe. That would make Colin Firth 6'0.5 or less. I don't think you can look at a couple of shots of Taron and Hardy walking about on the streets and say for sure that Hardy is taller. They could be quite close of course, but I'd bet on Taron edging Hardy when they pose for premiere pics etc.
said on 4/May/15
so are you downgrading Taron any soon, Rob?
My contribution for his height is 5'8.5"
Shorter than Hardy
[Editor Rob: we'll see how he looks over next year and if there's enough evidence he'll get changed. He can look just 5ft 9, but 5ft 8.5 I don't know - Hardy I'm certain in that film will have one of the twins made to look taller...]
5'9.5'' said on 3/May/15
I wouldn't go that far lol Hardy is more of a 176-177 man who rounds down and Taron has much worse posture than him, id say he's probably a solid 5'8'' like Rob
Smith said on 30/Apr/15
He is much shorter than Tom Hardy (whom you've rated as 1,75) in their new movie Legend. If Hardy is 1,75 then this dude is 1,68 tops.
MD said on 24/Apr/15
Well, then, perhaps its time to put him at a proper 5'9"? Not sure why this half-inch is still attached.
said on 22/Apr/15
Rob, do you think he is shorter or same size as Tom Hardy?
[Editor Rob: he may turn out the same size, at times he has worn thin shoes, like 0.5 inch...in those situations he can look 5ft 8.5-9 range with others. He claims 5ft 10, he could be adding 1 inch.]
Ed said on 19/Apr/15
Maybe 176 might be nearer, he is similiar range to tom hardy who is also a strong 5'9"
said on 6/Apr/15
I never come across that short next to my 6'1'' friends and nobody in my life has called me short, are you sure about this one Rob? My guess is 5'8.5''
[Editor Rob: 5ft 9 is quite possible]
Bernard said on 1/Apr/15
Hey Rob, I'd like to know where does this high listing comes from? Because I watched kingsman last week and he looked 5'7" next to Colin Firth A LOT. Okay, he did not have the best posture in the world in the film, so let's go with 5'8". But 1.5 inch above that is too much, there is no way this guy is 176,5cm
said on 31/Mar/15
"[Editor Rob: they could be very similar, both about 5ft 9.]"
so there is going to be a downgrade to 5'9?
although putting him as 5'8.5" would be the right measure
[Editor Rob: I might look at him again and see.]
said on 29/Mar/15
Rob, would like to see your coment on Mordekaiser's post.
They are on the same terrain level and taron looks shorter!
[Editor Rob: they could be very similar, both about 5ft 9.]
said on 24/Mar/15
Rob, I am a legit 5'9.5" man, and I don't usually look that short compared to my 6'1" friends.
take a look on this pic: Click Here
Taron is more likely to be in the 5'8" mark
[Editor Rob: remember Taron has half inch dress shoes...Colin's are at least 0.5in more and probably even 0.6-0.7in more.]
Emmie said on 24/Feb/15
On his RADA profile, it shows him at 5'10" which presumably would be the most accurate height.
MD said on 23/Feb/15
He comes across so squat. So, it's possible he's taller than he looks, but I still think 5'9.5" might be a bit much for him
cole said on 21/Feb/15
5'10 is a fair claim if you are 177 cm range - which he does look compared to Firth. 5'9.5 is what I thought after seeing Kingsman.
malik said on 19/Feb/15
no rob, he's more 174cm
MD said on 23/Jan/15
I've got to be honest, from the pictures I'm looking at, he does not look a 5'10".
Essie said on 20/Jan/15
about 5'9" or so.
