One simply puts on a 42R and then swaps it for a 42S. The correct method is to There is no standard Regular or Short, its totally up to what ever designer put it together.
Take a look, see what you like and wear it. If the arms are good but the body is too long, then simply have a tailor remove 1"-2" from the body. If the body is great but the arms too long? Well then go ahead and take a few inches off the sleeves. What ever you do, don't believe that because some guy wrote on the internet that you're "too short for a regular" he must be right. He's never seen you, the clothes you're trying on or the look you're trying to achieve. Blackhood , May 9, The only thing I'll add is that shortening the body is not always so easy.
It can throw off the balance of the jacket depending on where the waist and in particular the pockets are. You're much better off picking one that fits in the body, with the length correct and the buttoning point and waist in the right place for your body, and then adjusting the sleeves as necessary, which is the easiest and cheapest alteration you can do to a jacket.

Or if you're short legged your torso longer. Unless they are WAY off the sleeves don't matter.
You may find a 40 made with wider shoulders. Nicola , May 9, Im also new to this game. Just picked up a RLBL as my first "nice" suit. I ended up with a regular, as their jackets were already among the "slimmest" that I tried, it landed about to my knuckles, a fair compromise in my mind that and the short would have been a tad too short by the guidelines I was more concerned with the high arm holes and a decent drop to give me the silhouette of a young man who has the tapered torso.
I agree with the previous guy, he said it better, the timeless designs are favored here, and I respect that, Id certainly give a TF a spot in my closet, but not yet.
