i'm similarly sized to you and go with the 44R, however, thats because the 42R is to snug in the shoulders for me so i go up to the 44 and take parts of the jacket in. also if the pants are available as separates in a smaller size they will swap them for you (suits are a drop 6)
also bought a couple pairs around lunch time. i went with the medium gray and light blue. i agree about the funky colours being great just not for those in a conservative office environment. don't sleep on these if you're thinking about them!
the new trousers are indeed very nice. all seven colours are great in person. As i work in a relatively conservative office I'll be held to the greys and blues, but the green and burgundy are great for a more casual office / casual wear. great stuff rick!
I have a pair of size 9.5D Mora 2.0s in black that dont fit into my rotation. I believe these were from the Shoebank, however, I don't see any flaws in them.
Looking for around $250. PM for additional photos
