First, the jacket size and the slack size are 6" apart. This is a pretty standard "drop" and it represents a standard fit. If you are well-built, you might prefer to find an "athletic drop", which is 8", I think. I don't have a broad chest and a narrow waist, so a standard fit is what I need. With a 6" drop, a 42" jacket will come with a 36" waist trouser. You should be aware that in most suits, the trousers run small. A 36" trouser will fit you like a 34" casual pant. This has been the case with every suit I've purchased. If you are not sure, go try on trousers in a department store. If you need a smaller waist in your trousers than what will come with the pants, then you don't need to worry about this because you will have to have your pants taken in anyway. Just buy based on the jacket size.
Second, you will need to get the pants hemmed. The suit is *not* a modern cut - it's more conservative - so the trouser legs only have a slight taper to the hem. You can request any 'break' you want in the trousers with your tailor, but with this cut and the way the fabric hangs, I found that a medium break keeps it from looking like I'm a kid trying on dad's suit. If you are very short, I would even recommend a slight break. If the cut were more modern, I would absolutely go with a slight or even no break. I briefly considered having the trousers 'pegged' so that they would have a more pronounced taper, but ultimately I decided against it because I felt that it was too youthful. If you are a younger guy, you might think the trouser cut is a little too traditional because the pant legs are more or less a boot cut and may feel a bit like bell bottoms. That's how I felt at first and then I tried on several pairs of shoes and found that the style of shoe will be important in how you make this decision. I tried on a rounded toe cordavan oxford and a square toe black slip-on. The squared toe looked great, but the rounded toe brought attention to how wide the trouser is cut. If you like the pointy toe or rounded toe shoes, or if you have very expensive and stylish shoes, you might consider having the trousers pegged.
Third, the jacket doesn't have a slit in the back. I think most Americans are more familiar with a single, back vent, but this jacket has two side vents that create a flap that hang nicely over your butt. It's really a matter of your preference. I like the side vents, but if you have a very muscular or round backside you might find that the back flap will just sit on your bum and you may not like how it breaks the shape of the jacket, where a vent in the back would allow the jacket to hang property, but the vent would be open, which is fine. If you need a visual, google 'side vent men's suit' and look for a picture from behind.
Finally, if you don't know if you need a short (s), regular (r), or long (L) jacket, definitely go get fitted. Don't leave this to chance, because if you buy the wrong length of jacket, you will end up unhappy or have to spend more than the suit costs to get it tailored. The jacket length has to do with the length of the sleeves and how far the jacket hangs below your waist. Again this is becoming a matter of preference, but the jacket bottom shouldn't generally hang much further than your fingers with your hands by your side and the sleeves should be short enough that about a 1/4" of your shirt cuff can be seen peeking under it. I believe a sleeve that comes to about your wrist joint is what you want if you want to stay with the convention. If you get the right jacket length, you may not even need to have the jacket altered at all.
Please remember to cut the threads tacking your vents closed. They are usually sewn shut, but this is to protect the shape of the suit while it's being tried on by people in a store. You can also cut the threads used to sew the pockets closed, too, but this a matter of preference. If you do cut them, remember that anything you put in the outside pockets will bulge out and disrupt the shape of the jacket. Use the inside pockets for flat things like a phone or a wallet, but the outside pockets don't have much structure and aren't made to be used all the time. Again this is a matter of your own preference, but if you want to keep the suit looking smooth and sharp, avoid the temptation and don't cut the outside pocket threads.
I requested return authorization and reordered the suit, this time in the correct size and with 1 day shipping. To my surprise, it came right on time. Fit like a dream and needed only hemming (as stated). I am very pleased with a)the fabric which is a good lightweight fabric which seems very cool and comfortable to wear b) the fit c) the tailoring d) the responsiveness and fast shipping. And, last but not least...the Price.
If you are in the market for a suit, this is the one to get. It is extremely light weight and can be worn year-round regardless of how hot it is outside. For my friends in the south-west, this is a suit that can be comfortable to wear when it is 120 deg outside.
What a great looking suit. The material is light weight and feels great. This is a steal at $99. A great addition to any well dressed man's wardrobe!
