    Usually a Euro 54L, though in some brands a 54r or 52L fit better.

    I looking through my Dad's closet the other day, and I found a Tuxedo that he bought when he was my about age (22). Size 38XL, and the pants were altered down to 28". He was 6'4 and about 135lbs.

    Anyone here skinnier than that?

    So he's a good six inches taller then me and ten pounds lighter? At least we wear the same size pants [​IMG]

    I'm typically a 42 sometimes a 41. I'm honestly floored to see my size in the lead right now, it seems all I see are people talking about being smaller than a 40

    You can't change your 5'3", I'm 5'5" so not that much better than you. But you gotta work on your chest to at least get a 34 man..

    I'm usually a 42L in HF and BB, but in the Italian cuts like Brioni and Kiton I think the 44L fit better, even though the salesman said the 42L was perfect.

    Anyone else different sizes depending on the brand?

    American brands like BB or RL always a bit bigger for me (36 feels like 37) while Italian brands fit perfectly

    39" waist (I actually have a butt so ultra slim cuts don't work)
