You're right of course, the jacket length would be the main problem - it's listed as 30.5".   Damn, I'd almost talked myself in to it! I imagine I'll be waiting a while to find a 40L in navy/dark grey on sale, or listed. Ah well.   Thanks for your reply.
Hello all. This may be a bit of a silly question as I'm a relative newbie, so bear with me!   I would usually take a 40L (I'm 6ft3) but there's a 40R RLBL suit going for a decent price and I'm wondering if I could get away with the sleeve length on the jacket.
