Greetings -

If I'm a 41R (verging on long - 5'11.5" with a long torso, shortish leg),
if I were to hazard an online purchase, should I opt
for a 42 to be taken in, or a 40 to be let out?

Or does it depend on the style/maker?

Thanks,

- Richard

Depends on style/maker. Try before you buy. Next.

Sizing varies so much that the numbers hardly mean anything. Find something that fits your shoulders and chest, then tailor elsewhere. Make sure the arm length at least exceeds your required length.

+1. See if you can get actual measurements.
