What does L and R mean in suits?

All chest sizes come in three length: R(Regular), L(Long) and S(Short). An easy way to explain the difference between “Regular”, “Long” and “Short” is, for “Short”, both the sleeves and length of the overall jacket will be 1″ – 1.5″ shorter than “Regular”, and same applies to “Regular” vs “Long”.

How tall is 6’tall, 42R or 42L?

At 6′, I generally wear a 44R. However, there have been a few times when a 44L was required to get the proper jacket length. The best bet is to try them on and then you will know for sure.

How tall do you have to be to wear a 42R?

I tend to wear a 42R as I’m longer in the leg (34″ inseam) than in the torso. I’ve heard people over 5’9″ should wear long, but long jackets always feel…well…long. Should I try to explore the longs a bit more? I also wear a 42R. I’m 5’10 with a 30″ inseam. I feel like longs are way too long for me.
