I've always loved Cable Car Clothiers, over priced yes, very traditional yes, but my experience with them has always been positive. It is a place taken right out of a history text book, next time I go to the City "San Francisco"I will visit. Thank you buy the way for posting your positive experience with CCC.
I would suggest a 42 because it seems that on the 40 there are some unnatural wrinkles on the sides of your arms then again that could be the postioning of your arm. Also it seems the back pinches a bit towards your shoulders on the 40. I cannot speak for the differences of length as for it is hard to see in the picture.

On a straw or furfelt fedora "usually" The wider the fedora's brim is, the taller the crown, and the higher the band is the more formal it is. Many say the teardrop crown is more formal than the center dent, that is open to interpretation, but to me the teardrop is much more nostalgic and classic of the 30's and 40's. Wide tight, front and center pinches are also very classic, such as the tight front and center pinch Bogart had in Casblanca. On other hats such as derbies,...
