    Oh man I'd been checking new arrivals. It's already sold out in my sizes.

    That's strange, it's a preorder and - at least when I access the site - looks like it is still available in all sizes.

    I had been checking the canadian site. I see it on the US as all available. Decisions. If I said that the 36S Sienna fits pretty well in terms of length, shoulder but is a bit tight around the chest (lapel bowing), what size would people recommend for the Havanna? Size up?

    Should be available in all sizes. It just dropped this morning.

    Gian that’s a tough call. Have you let out the chest all the way on that sienna you have?

    Worse come to worse you can just order two sizes and send one back.

    Get both a 36s and 38s and return the one that does not fit.

    I would move quick too because those are two sizes that usually sell out pretty quickly. Especially 36S. Never easy for me to even find those.

    I have not had adjustments made. I could get to a SS store but the earliest would be Saturday. Not sure how fast items tend to sell out with SS.

    If the 36S is a little tight in the chest without any alterations then if you let it out you'll be fine. I have a similar problem with 38R/S these days because ive put on weight but once they let the chest out its all good. Sizing up to 40S or R doesn't work well for me because then everything else is too baggy or long.

    My guess is that you are 36S but just need the chest opened up a bit which there is adequate material for.

    Question re regular v long sizing - is it a higher rise on the long trousers?

    On the SM thread the owner mentioned their contemporary fits like a Havana. And most SS suits have that same 6” drop.

    Yes, but personally I find the difference minimal and hard to notice. All SS trousers just have a very low rise.

    @davidazio I’m interested to know about people who may have switched from regular to long sizing - have you? SS is borderline too short in jacket length and rise etc and I’m wanting to know if it is a valid option to just go to a long size. I have long arms so I’m thinking I may only have to worry about jacket length? @blekit I seem to recall you have some expertise in this area?

    Indeed, I've switched between size options. Regular are slightly too short for my taste (although if we consider the current trend for shorter jackets they might be just fine), longer sizes are, well, longer, more classic. Besides the sleeve and jacket lengths I don't recall any more serious differences in sizing. If I were you I'd definitely try the long version of some jacket and saw how I feel in it, after all that's what's the most important facto, isn't it? :)

    I agree, green is a great color option, a bit underated for suits and sport coats.
