    Help with suits

    im not usually one to buy suits but i do need one
    can someone aid me a bit
    What does the S M L refer to next to the size and is it better to go one size up then your normal size?

    You sure it's not S, R or L?

    S - Short (for trousers leg length, for jackets arm length)
    R - Regular
    L - Long

    Best thing to do is try them on, don't try and guess. Nothing worse than an ill-fitting suit...

    You can always order two sizes and return the one that doesn't fit.

    Hold your arms down by your sides and bend your thumb. Where the point of your thumb touches your leg, thats the correct length for a suit jacket. So get someone to measure the length from your shoulder to that point and that tells you how long your jacket should be. Marks and Spencer tell you how long the S, R & L jackets are in each size. They are also a good place to go and try some on so you know your size. You can also buy from them online and then change the size instore if its wrong.
