1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    I am 6' 2" and wear a 42 Long suit.  The problem is I have a 32/33" inseam--longish torso, shorter legs.  Would it be be better to wear a 42 Regular so I don't look as "top-heavy," all jacket and no pants, so to speak?  Or would the jacket look too short and silly.

    Thanks for your comments.

    I think as long as the jacket hem comes down to at least where the bottom of your rear end -- right where is starts curving back into the back of the upper thigh -- then you can wear the the 42R. It seems to me that you could also, if the R is too short, get the L and get the hem taken up.
