There are several differences notated on the BB website and on these forums, but the immediate differences I noticed trying on the suits it the slightly lower button stance and slimmer pants on the Regent.
I also didn't need the waist taken in on the Regent which indicates to me a less boxy cut. It was actually the only suit coat I ever bought that needed nothing done to it...not even sleeve adjustment...though I am very average in proportion (6', 178lbs) . I did find myself fitting better into some 40Rs or 41Rs coats among the different suits I tried on. All were US made and some 40s fit like 41s and visa versa. Prior I had only noticed this between their US and Italian suits. I went with the 40R with one suit and had the pants let out as I'm a 35" waist.
They ordered me a 41R for the second suit which has yet to come it.
I do love my Fitzgeralds and get compliments on a routine basis.
