Quote: It's crazy that given the astheticaly pleasing look of side vents, one cannot find a suit of this nature in America for under $1000. Also, side vents do not look good on everyone. One of my friends has a huge ass, and the flap in the back sticks out when he wears side vents. It looks REALLY funny.

Raley, I have to disagree with johnnynorman, I'm going to say 38R, I too am just over 6' and weigh a bit more ( ok, 50# more) than you, have a slightly shorter inseam at 32" (so have a proportionally longer torso, unless you have an unusually long neck) and wear a 43R and always need to have the sleeves shortened about 2". With the measurements you gave, a R fit should hit you just perfectly - if it just covers your backside, you're in business - but the sleeves on a 38...
