Since I really couldn't decide, and sales are ending, I ended up getting both - 46 in navy, 48 in dark green. I like the dark green colour more, unusual but very elegant imo, and the herringbone is a bit more visible. Incredibly fast shipping by DHL.VBC 100% wool
As for size if in doubt, go with the larger one. Far easier to get right with an alterations tailor.
So...Jackets look great, even the lapel seems better than in pictures on the website.
The funny thing is, I am still not completely sure which to keep. Both are long in the sleeve but that's always the case, the 48 is perhaps slightly long in body too and definitely needs altering the back (mine is very hollow) but is definitely more comfortable and doesn't look large at all in the top block. The 46 looks more the right length and much better back but less comfortable, while probably usable.
Thinking to alter and keep the 48 but will probably bring both to the alteration tailor and follow her advice.
EDIT: yep, will be keeping the dark green in 48. Pinning the back and shortening the sleeves fixed it very nicely.
