It may just be the first picture, but those sleeves look very long. Can they be shortened an inch?
It might depend on where you are measuring from. Top of collar or bottom of collar. Lovely piece, though. If it was 40R, I'd have snapped it up.
You know all your own measurements to the fraction of an inch.
This is the snooty old farts section of style forum. This is where people argue over the finer points of tailoring, or whether cordovan leather should be taken from the left rump of the horse or the right. Shops like H&M or Express sell cheap clothes, which is why they are despised here. As a young 'un you're probably better off on the "streetwear" section.
Those measurements look like a 40R, except for the length. However, from the pictures it looks as though it is more like a denim jacket that I would expect to be short. You say you are 6'0" and it is waaay short. Where does it come to on you? Above your belt?
I bought a pair from landsend.com and they were perfectly decent mid range quality.
Neither. They're both out of stock. There are plenty of R Talbott cufflinks floating about the b&s forum.
Any chance of some better pictures?
Put your suit on. Go to a hat store. Try some on. You'll find an individual hat that works.
That length sounds about right. As for the "eyeball and chalk", that's what all tailors do. It's like carpenters making a quck mark with a pencil before cutting. The issue is not so much the method, as whether the tailor has a good eye. Sounds like you'll be fine.
