Surprised if the difference is more than half inch as I think a lot of people at first glance would say you're the same height. Goes to show 1-2cm isn't a big difference.

Would you say the photo depicts how a 2cm height differential looks? as this resembles how I look with 180 cm people I think.
Somewhere in 1/2 to 3/4 visually

So you had more footwear than him in the picture

How tall would he be if you had like a little bit more footwear. I basically look like that next to someone that is 5'8 though he was wearing a little bit more footwear then me
he might look closer to 5ft 8.5 if I had more footwear.

Burton always wore built up shoes though.

Richard Burton always wore built up shoes, both in movies and in real life.

Rob is prone to downgrading himself really. He is 5'8.9 in the morning, so could quite reasonably claim 5'8.5, but doesn't. Firth looks about half an inch taller than Rob, so 5'9 seems reasonable.
[Editor Rob: both Glenn/alex in NY saw me on the stadiometer at 5ft 8.25.
Alex saw this at lunchtime, then 4 hours later at near 6pm the same height. But the stadiometer adds 2mm so I think a good 5ft 8 and 1/8th at lunchtime or night (there's no real difference with me) is my low measurement.]

this guy has body proportions that make him appear taller. Look how much higher his shoulders are compared to Rob. If he had Rob's head and neck he'd probably be 5'10"

5'8.5 174cm today and possibly 5'9 (175cm) peak.
