The waist button on the striped number looks relatively (too) low, the grey one looks better in this regard. Though it could be an optical illusion I guess. Do they measure the same?

Yes, Tom Ford on both. They measure identically, the camera angle on the stripes may be throwing the proportion off. I was afraid of the pockets too, but both measure exactly the same as my standard 40Rs.

I think the buttons on the striped suit are closer together vs. the grey. Notice that the striped is a 3-2-roll.

The buttons/holes also blend in a bit better on the striped.

Being TF, they came with surgeon cuffs otr, no?
Is this why the sleeves were kept on the longer side, or is it a personal preference?

They were not surgeons cuffs, nor are they now - just standard cuffs. The sleeve length is the same too as it was OTR. I have really long arms.

A regular cut is usually suitable for someone 5' 9" to 6' 2". A long is suitable for a 6' 1" to 6' 6". Depending on which end of the spectrum you are in as well as your preference for a longer jacket, if you are between 6' to 6' 2", you might still be able to fit the 40L. The difference between a 40R and 40L is generally about 1.5"-2" in length and about 1" in sleeve length but it is enough to change the proportions of the lapel, button stance and pocket position.

SP, the suits look terrific in the photos.  I'm also looking at the option to get a 40L and have it tailored to 40R.  But I'm 5-9, and other posters suggests this can't be done for those of us on the shorter side.  Any thoughts?
