I purchased this Menlo and never took the tags off. I read they ran tight (nope) so I went with an XL. It fits like a 44. I've been losing weight (yay!) so I thought it would work but I suppose I'm really a 42 or a 40 now (bummer). I'd also be willing to trade with someone that has one that fits a 42.
