My understanding is that size 23 in this system is a short 46EU (46 divided by 2) or US 36SConversely, US 40L would be a long 50EU or size 100.
Happy to help
Is this for a lab research position? If so, chances are the grad student interviewing you will be wearing jeans and a t-shirt, so best not to overdress either. A dress shirt and chinos would be my recommendation--definitely not a suit and I wouldn't even recommend sportcoat and tie.If you're interviewing for a research position in the social sciences then you could consider dressing up one notch.(I run an academic life science research lab).
Still looking for an answer-thanks!
Question about cotton trousers--I know the fabric is prewashed and should not shrink (much). I would like to know whether I need to add any length to my Luxire wool trouser pattern or not. I have noticed a minor (but entirely acceptable) amount of shrinking in my Luxire shirts. I've searched and found one poster (@Bowball) reporting that his chinos shrank by about an inch. Have others had the same experience? Thanks in advance!
 I posted the results of my first Luxire suit a few months ago. http://www.styleforum.net/t/304965/luxire-custom-clothing-official-affiliate-thread/15300_50#post_7659248 Just received my second suit--will post a fuller review with pictures later. Shoulder/chest is much closer to the Attolini jacket that I sent in for replication than the first attempt. Buttonholes are better than on the first suit, though still an area that needs some further improvement. Button quality...
I don't remember the exact amount, but it was something like $35 for a $300 order. 
I have purchased two pairs of shoes from Herring and have been charged for duties/fees both times by DHL. I have yet to be charged duties/fees when receiving items by Royal Mail (3 pairs of shoes from Pediwear).
Loake absolutely makes their better shoes in England and yes, they also make shoes for BB. I can't speak from personal experience to the build quality of the model that you posted, but in general I've been satisfied with the quality:price ratio of my Loakes.
A bit off topic, but Pediwear ships by Royal Mail. I have not had to pay customs fees on three orders so far to the US. I have received two Sam Hober orders by regular mail with no customs fees.
