    I searched around but came couldn't come up with anything.
    I've been scopin' out the Isaia on STP but not sure for sizing. I'm a 44L in pretty much anything I've worn. Zegna feels good in 44L on me. My best fitting suits have a shoulder measurement of 20" +/- a little. So does that mean I am a 54 or a 56. Any help is appreciated.

    Suit measurements are based on chest size. If you are a 44L, it means you have a 44 inch chest. Most of your suits probably have a 48 inch chest. Buy the size that is 10 larger than your actual chest measurement and it will fit the way it was intended to fit.

    I've found that to be generally true, but not 100 percent of the time. I wear a 42R but have found that, for example in Belvest, most Brionis I've tried, some Cornelianis and Isaia, I wear 54R.

    Etro runs a little tight. If you're a 44L, try their 46L.
