    From any reputable maker, a L will adjust all proportions, not just overall coat length. On the other hand, I do know some who ask for R's in MTM programs and then lengthen only the bottom of the coat to keep the higher button stance (and pocket placements, etc.).

    I just bought a L-sized jacket from BB a month or two ago, having tried on both it and the R version.

    It's longer in the jacket (like an inch), but the buttoning point is less low than the increased length in inches (like half an inch). I haven't empirically measured, but that's how it feels. So yes, I think the answer to your question is yes.

    It was a different cut, but I'm guessing that it'd be a decent indicator of how they do things.

    Suit is a little too short/button stance too high? Trousers are definitely too tight! (You can get away with loose trousers standing/slightly tight sitting but not tight standing, IMO!) That said, and apart from wrong coloured belt, IMO (it should be brown), the colour palette is nice! :) (I, seriously, need to get an electric blue suit!)

    Careful - it takes a lot of swagger to pull off.

    Being Japanese helps. [​IMG]

    Thanks for all the thumbs up and comments today, I appreciate it.

    Quick question ( I didn't get anywhere on the quick questions thread about this). Does anyone have any experience with the "russel patch" PRL model? Just got one off ebay for a steal and I can return it but I was just wondering if anyone knows how those models fit.

    Thanks in advance!

    Have a good friday evening gents.
