Hi there,

I am from Europe and haven't seen a few size notations which are frequently used on ebay stores and other online web stores
.

There seem to be differences between e.g. a 40R, 40S and a 40L. I don't know all the variations, but can anybody please tell me what these letters stand for? I assume the R means Regular, the S means Small and the L means Long, but really, this is just a guess. Are there any other letters that exist? Personally, I always thought a 40 is just a 40, but there seem to be differences as well.

I would appreciate it if the experts around here are willing to give me the necessary information on this matter. Another question: can somebody also please provide me with a good web site which provides trustworthy information on how a suit is measured?

Thanks a lot!

Mike

Thanks (unless there is some other information I should be aware of) I think this suffices.
