     I agree with zippyh: go by Barbour's measurements. I'm a 40R and I'd say I'm right between the medium and large. I went with the medium because I don't wear sweaters under it but if I did, I would have gone with the large. Just a warning though: the sleeves are a bit long on me on the medium and I'm 6'1" and usually get 34" sleeve shirts. The sleeves on the large might be too long. Here's how the medium looks on me:
  Looks like a 10085 on the Simpson. I sold one in black on here a few months ago here.
  Very nice. I thought Carmina stopped making shell Jodhpurs due to cracking of the shell during the lasting process. Are they making them again or is this one of the last of the bunch?
 You're gonna love that thing; I wear mine all the time! Also in case anybody missed this, it looks like the Ash Irish Linen Walts are on sale here but not on the sale page.
  Is that the exploded rust check? Looked a lot more orange in the fabric swatch.

  I've had a jacket taken in and sleeves shortened at the shoulder with great results by Eduardo at Allen Tailoring. I decided to give Pablo at Stanton a try today and took a factory finds jacket to him. He quoted a week turnaround time to take it in and shorten the sleeves. He praised the quality of Epaulet stuff although mentioned that Epaulet customers are very particular about their alteration requests... Stopped by the store and picked up the single-breasted Veneto...
That steel mist...
 My build is very similar to yours. I'm 6'1", 170lbs and usually wear a medium in Epaulet shirts but go with a 40R in sportcoats because my shoulders are a bit wide. I have some sportcoats in 39R from the factory finds that fit me well too although the lapels bow ever so slightly. I went with the 38 in the Spiewak. I tried the 36 as well last year and it felt too small around my torso.
  Did you go down half a size on these relative to your 2030 last size? I'm on the same boat as you regarding retiring my Indys. Ever since I picked up one of the 3sixteen boots, I barely touch my Aldens any more!
