The sleeve length doesn't seem out of line for a 43, and if it were a bit short (which I doubt), they could undoubtedly be let out a little. I don't understand the concern about the drop. A drop of 6 is the norm in my experience--more common than 7 or 8. Have some of you experienced otherwise? Perhaps I don't understand the meaning of drop (and please enlighten me on this), but the chest (44") and waist of the jacket (42") are pretty common in this size. I have had jacket waists taken in an inch or two with no adverse consequences to the cut of the jacket, and chest measurements can be altered a little too (maybe up to an inch). In my opinion, the most critical measurement is the shoulders because they can't really be narrowed without removal of the sleeves, which is the one thing I'd try to avoid, particularly with a Neapolitan jacket and its distinctive sleeveheads.
