    So now just comes back to me risking it and being a test dummy, hmm. I'm seriously tempted.

    So, I hesitate to write this because: a) in no way am I speaking from a position of expertise here (only personal experience); and, b) I'm not sure it would be a good plan to do a pre-order without having tried on a Formosa previously. But, keeping in mind that this is just my rough and ready measurement, and taking it with whatever level of caution you think is appropriate ... I have a few Formosa jackets in size 44R. They seem to have about a 98.5cm chest measurement and a 44cm shoulder measurement. And, here is where it gets especially subjective (or at least where I feel least confident about what I'm saying): the regular size seems to be about the same length as the NMWA Eidos 46R. Maybe very slightly shorter. So, if you want significantly shorter from the Formosa, then a 44 short might be a better bet.

    I hope that is helpful, but again I really can only promise that I'm doing my best to give you a rough guide here...

    This is actually extremely helpful considering I was really concerned with the shoulder width. Since I can see the measurements of other sizes I felt I would need a Short over Regular no matter what since these jackets run longer than what I'm used to, thoug. But thank you again, at least I know the shoulders and chest will be where I need.

    If i had any available funds I would have been in for the tobacco suit and the houndstooth jacket. Maybe the drapers green as well. Just bad timing currently.

    I was thinking something with more of an earth tone...i think gray is a little too plain jane for a bold color like merlot.

    I'd probably wear the merlot with earth tone greens. But then I like green and have a lot of it.

    Also @gs77 noted your nice fit in the CM WAYWRN thread and comment about finding the right size in Formosa. You may be aware of these preorders already, but just in case not I thought I'd draw your attention to this thread.

    Thanks. My favorite would be that wool/silk PoW, but I don't have time to decide now really.

    Looking at sizing table, it seams 54L might fit me just fine. Is it understood that Formosa fits a big more generous?
