And probably too long. If the photo was straight on and your hand was at your side it would be easier to tell.

Sigh. I bought it on eBay. It's a 40R--the size I always wear. And it's a Corneliani--a brand in which I have two 40R suits that fit great. I don't understand why this 40R is so much bigger than my 40R suits. I don't think it's mis-tagged because the measurements are as they were represented by the seller. But somehow it came out all wrong...

Sometimes brands will do different sizing depending on the model/season for example in TF their size 46-50 (US 36-40) all fit me about the same because they are diff models/seasons. Even with Brioni a 38R nomentano that i have in charcoal grey fits me differently than a 38R nomentano that i have in navy blue, with the former being a lot looser.

Too big all around. Too long. Re-sell it.
