    Hello StyleForum!

    My advanced apologies if something similar has already been answered. As an athletic, 6'3" 23year-old male I've been having difficulties finding the proper suit size. My previous suits are a 40L, but this is a challenging size to find and still require some alterations. I find 42R, especially with Boss/Versace, fit nicely around the waist (32-33), but are often sightly short.

    I've been several times that the trend is for shorter suits, which makes the 42R more easily workable. Is this true?

    Thanks for the input.

    You're to tall for a regular, forget the trend.

    Trust man, go with the right fit. If you're a 40L, you're a 40L.

    Measure your chest, that should be your size.
