    So I have a recent (St. Andrews) vintage RLPL two button suit. It has a ticket pocket if that helps pinpoint the season (maybe not). It is a 44R with a chest measurement of between 47 and 48 inches and the shoulders approximately 20 inches. With a little bit of letting out the jacket fits well. Has there been much variation over the last few years in the measurements of a 44R? Since I don't have a RL store anywhere near to try the suit on would I be safe in ordering another 44R on spec or has sizing slimmed down recently?

    If yours is made in Italy (St Andrews), then I'd say that current sizing should be pretty consistent. The Made in England RLPL (Chester Barrie) was roomier.
