The late Toshiro Mifune was an imposing 5'9, 160 pounds, and regarded as tall for his generation. A "42 short" is probably a lot closer to what would fit the average Japanese samurai than otherwise. Depending on what you end up putting your actors in, you might want to have the joke be about the taller guy having fit problems.
