    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?

    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?

    Don't you think that the jacket is too large on chest?

    No, if it is too tight you will look like 'drag queen'

    It is a bit too wide in the shoulders but still seems to fit acceptably. It's very hard to tell if you've got room in the chest though. Can't yu just try on the next size down ?
