    what do you have in small size

    Are these sentences correct:

    -What do you have in small size?
    -In small size, we have a blue suede jacket that you might like.



    I think both sentences are correct. I think 'size small' could work as well. One could also say"a blue suede jacket in small size" as well, I suppose.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Re: what do you have in small size

    In a conversation between a customer and a retailer, there's no need for 'size'.

    'What do you have in small?'

    Re: what do you have in small size

    What do you have in small sizes? (That would cover a range of sizes at the smaller end of the scale.)
    What do you have in smaller sizes? (That would suggest any size smaller than the one you are holding or indicating.)
    What do you have in a small? (This asks which items of clothing are available with a label marked Small, not Medium or Large or XXL etc.)

    It really depends on whether you specifically want an item which is marked "Small" on the label, rather than Medium, Large, XL, XXL, etc, or if you simply want a range of quite small sizes (in UK women's sizes, for example, sizes 4 to 10 would be considered by most to be small).
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
