He actually does look close in height to Richard in Spooks.

Hi Rob,

Rupert Penry Jones is slightly taller than Richard Armitage, who's listed as 6ft2 and a half. They've got quite a few photos together because they both played in "Spooks". You'll easily notice that Jones edges Armitage out a wee bit. Since Jones says that he's 6ft1 when listed online as 6ft2, then it would be safe to assume that Armitage is 6ft1 as well and not 6ft2 and a half.

And by the way, I'm taller than these guys but I have no issue nor difficulty at all in finding a good suit. It's not as if we're 7 footers or anything..

I'm not sure I remember Penry looking taller than Richard on that show.

Rob, is 186cm at all possible?
Editor Rob: he can seem a solid enough 6ft 1 guy, it would be unlikely he fell much under but I feel roughly around that 6ft 1 mark seems ok for him.

I'm 6'1 and get my suits at Asda - great fit actually.

Why would it be hard to find a good suit at 6'1, it's not an uncommon height, like say 5'1 or 7'1.

@Rob: didn't know you were getting into that business now too lol.

Rob, I just noticed that you've put him in the 6'1 Actresses section.
Editor Rob: I'll give him a quick sex change!

He's a stunningly good looking British actor. I'd actually have put him a little bit taller.

"As I'm 6ft 1in it's hard to find good suits."

i dont know this dude and ive never heard of him, but this statement is obviously kinda dumb... suits only look good on tall people...
the result of a survey was that 6'2" is the perfect height to wear a suit.
