    Hey guys! I'm new to FS, I've read many posts and I trust your opinions. I am buying a suit for prom(not a tux) but I want a contemporary suit so I'm looking at some black label suits. I normally wear a 36s/r but when I went into the shop the guy told me I was a 38 and I tried it on. Tell me what you think! This is the worse fitting one. I can have it altered a little but but I just want to buy the right size because I'm going to buy from Mr. Porter's. I'm just suspicious because they just HAPPENED to only have 38 R's in stock... interesting how he told me that was my exact size

    To me it looks like the jacket needs to be tighter in the waist, shorter in the sleeves and in the overall length. Try sizing down.

    +1, As the man says.

    You could post better pictures though. Take hands out of pockets and it will be easier to tell.

    Alright, I'll try looking for a suit in a smaller size. Sadly the store I went to ran out of 38's and 36's.
    Mr. Porter's has a pretty decent return policy so it's not that dire but just in case I have to take a blind guess what size do you guys suggest I downsize to? The picture is of a 38R Ralph Lauren Black Label

    36r maybe 36s depending on how short the sleeves are cut

    I don't know how reliable these numbers actually are but according to the website this is the measurement breakdown( In Cm). I wear a size 32 waist by the way. I'm pretty confident I could have the waist pulled out that far though Size\tShoulder\tInside Leg\tRise\tLeg Opening\tBack Length\tChest\tOutside Leg\tSleeve Length\tArmhole Diameter\tTrouser Waist\tJacket Waist 36S\t42\t83\t27\t38\t72\t96\t104\t41\t40\t76\t86 36R\t43\t83\t28\t38\t73\t98\t104\t41\t42\t76\t88 38S\t44\t84\t29\t40\t74\t100\t104\t41\t44\t80\t92 38R\t45\t84\t30\t42\t74\t102\t105\t42\t44\t82\t94

    What is the website you're getting this from? Is this for RLBL jackets?

    great fit

    P.S. if that's a regular then you need the same size in a short if you're under 5'8"
