How do I measure my suit size?

To measure your suit size, you will need a tape measure. Start by measuring your chest at its widest point, then measure around your waist at its narrowest point. Finally, measure the length of your back by starting from the base of your neck and stopping at your waist.

What does the "R", "S", and "L" stand for in suit sizes?

The "R" stands for regular, indicating a standard-length suit jacket. The "S" stands for short, indicating a shorter-length suit jacket for individuals with shorter torsos. The "L" stands for long, indicating a longer-length suit jacket for individuals with longer torsos.

How do European suit sizes differ from US suit sizes?

European suit sizes typically run smaller than US suit sizes. To convert between the two, you can typically add 10 to the European size to get the US equivalent. For example, a European size 50 would be approximately equivalent to a US size 40.

What is the difference between a slim fit and a regular fit suit?

A slim fit suit is more tailored and form-fitting, with a narrower cut through the chest, waist, and leg. A regular fit suit, on the other hand, has a more traditional and relaxed silhouette, providing more room in the chest, waist, and leg areas.

Can I alter a suit if the size doesn't fit me perfectly?

Yes, it is common to have a suit altered to achieve a better fit. A skilled tailor can make adjustments to the suit's waist, shoulders, or sleeves to ensure a more tailored look. However, it is recommended to start with a suit that is closest to your measurements to minimize alteration requirements.
