I recently purchased these from S&M. While they aren't true high-rise they do ride higher than any other pants I own.
Those look better but I would try to get higher, at least between the two buttons of your jacket.

Some time ago I found a very interesting article about "proportionality" that illustrates very well what I am trying to point out. It's not very long and is worth reading:

I agree with Merc. You seem to have a fairly impressive/athletic physique, and I think higher rise trousers would help to accentuate it, and create a more aesthetic pleasing split between your top/lower halves.
Note: necessary disclaimer that I love obscenely high rise trews.

I can second this. I'm 6'4" and when buying RTW, especially Italian brands, I often find the jackets too short.
At 6'4 is even a Long too short?

That said the style in Italy was shorter sport coats when I was there a year and a half ago. Folks here are more into classic length.

It's very hard to find long sizes around here. Finding them in models I like is even worse. I usually find 52 long to be ok, Italian cuts are short but in a "contemporary style". 52 regular can be a bit his and miss. Now I just do bespoke and get it a proper length from the start.

Wow. That looks great. Is this custom?
Thanks my man! Its MTO from Spier and Mackay!

I'm going to remember this next time some knucklehead tries telling me watches under 42mm are too small for them...
I concur! Im not a big face watch kinda guy.. most in my rotation hover from 34mm to 36mm.. I have a larger face watch that clocks in at 44mm, but I rarely wear it anymore..
