Or you could try buying suits an entire ten sizes too small and having them recut too. I'm sure they'd look about as good as the ten-sizes-too-big-thing. Either way, I think it's much smarter than buying the correct size. Just my twenty... I mean my two cents.

I worry for this user if he's not a troll.

OP, is this you?

The more I think about this, the more I think OP might be a troll. Seriously, 52 to 42? No way.

I think the OP might be getting confused with the 52R. It is probably a european measurement which is a 42R.

My exact thoughts...

[quote=maseace007;4434904]I recently purchased a worn once mainline Corneliani tuxedo that was a US size 52R. I wear a 42L. The tuxedo was in such great shape (only worn once) and such a great deal (only $50.00) that I scooped it up. I spent another $100.00 to have it tailored so it would fit. I am happy with it.

Here's a pic of me in a 54XL tuxedo tailored to a 36S.

The tailor would have entirely disassamble, recut then reassemble the suit; it would cost less and produce a better result if you just gave them a bolt of fabric and got them to make you a suit from scratch...

It's tough to tell from those pics, but those armholes look ridiculously low. You'd be much better off just buying a suit that fits.

Hahaha. Are you a madman? Armholes are too low (and they're supposed to be high these days). Lapels are larger than China, and well there's something off about the whole thing. They seem to have the length correct though.
