No, the 44 is a minimum, and most 44s usually even fit a little tight on me. I'm sort of in between a 44 and a 46, truthfully.
Do you think they could take in the trousers about 2" without doing a recut or making them look awkward? Also, can you speak to the fit of the Oxxford 1220 more generally? I think I read it has more of a modern, tailored cut than, say, the BB Madison line.
Thanks for your help.
