    Is it better to buy a size below or the same? [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I think that's fine.

    If it were any smaller, it would be too short at the waist.

    Hmmm... would widening Ernest's chest and shoulders help?

    Lenght is the same in 40 and 42 (my size)

    I'd still go with the 42.

    You need a little room to breathe and stretch.

    I thought you only wear canvassed suits and 7 fold ties.

    And it is ridiculous to not wear a tuxedo to a semi-formal event?

    And loafer is also bad?

    So why the leather jacket?
