I think you're being fooled by the hat if you think this guy is 5'8". His eyes, nose, mouth and chin are all higher than Rob's, and he doesn't appear to be tilting his head.

Not seeing 3cm of differences, he looks 5'8 next to you. Are you sure he was taller than you in person?
Editor Rob
Absolutely, I seen him enough to go with 176cm.

Whenever I guessed height I was 75% accurate I had him at 5'9.25
Editor Rob: he did seem over 5ft 9 that weekend from what I saw of him.

Horrific circumstances surrounding his death. Went cold turkey on alcohol and the withdrawal effects led to him dying of heart failure

rob did he look near 5'10 with his shoes on?
[Editor Rob: he could look near 177cm, but with shoe advantage I think 176 is a good shout for him.]
