    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.
