Couldn't agree more. I'll make my first comment on your posts since it's positive. Admirable looking fit here. Stick with these measurements.

Yes but I'm willing to bet that's an R, not an L.
I know they don't change it from R to S from what I've heard. Someone in the SS thread said they do change it from R to L but the side by side pic didn't really look like it. I don't want to post another members picture though.post #53884 of 787236/30/13 at 1:42pm
Yep, that's a 34R. Bear in mind that I'm typically a (very) Short in almost every brand, and you get an idea how short the Havana cut is. The jacket length was shortened a further 0.5" or so from standard though (for a first purchase from SS, I decided to let the salesperson decide most aspects of the alterations, just to see how well they'd handle the whole process). It's the shortest jacket in my wardrobe except a BBBF BB0 that's 0.25" shorter (no length alteration on that one), but the BBBF has more closed fronts so it doesn't appear as short as the more open Havana. I think that in future, I won't get a Havana shortened (or at least, not by quite as much). That's a minor thing though; I'm content with the length on this one as it currently is, as a different option to have within my wardrobe.
And thanks for the +ve feedback, mrjester!post #53885 of 787236/30/13 at 2:34pmQuote:
You can special order up to a 38 as long as they have fabric available...although they would be final sale, so you'd be taking a shot in the dark if you're not familiar with the fit.post #53886 of 787236/30/13 at 3:08pmpost #53887 of 787236/30/13 at 4:48pmpost #53888 of 787236/30/13 at 4:58pmpost #53889 of 787236/30/13 at 5:09pmpost #53890 of 787236/30/13 at 5:39pmDiscussion at our house:
