I am looking to buy a set of Afganka, something like what's on sale here, and there are a few sellers on the internet, but, nowhere can I find my size, i.e. European 54-56 or 44-46 US/UK, anyone more familiar with ex soviet military surpluses can give me some suggestions?

PS, and no, I am not fat, I'm just 1.87m tall.

Okay, sovietarmystuff.com has a forum, and the site owner communicates with customers through the forum, and I said that he has my size, now I am just waiting for it to arrive, but it's the Christmas, so it can take up to two month for mail to reach Australia from Ukraine.

The set cost me 100 USD. Reasonably good price for something that can be worn to a temperature of -40 degrees celcius.

Shame about the lack of cold here...

The shipping costs must have hurt.
