Uniqlo M shirts fit like a 15/32.
That is just a picture of the J. Press logo. You can narrow down the age of the jacket by which stores are listed, but you can't really tell which line it is in. That tag is not current and is probably pretty old. You can probably figure out who made the jacket with the tag at the back of the neck.
This will be hanging in the National Portrait Gallery for centuries.

We still have a button hole at the very top of the lapel. Why keep that...
Thanks for posting this. This is fascinating.
