 I can also vouch for Jiffy - I have the J-4000:http://www.amazon.com/J-4000-Jiffy-Garment-Steamer-Plastic/dp/B0000665TE/ref=sr_1_1?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1382567913&sr=1-1&keywords=j-4000 It's a little more expensive than the J-2000 Mike linked too, but it's all metal and really solid/industrial - you could use this thing for 20 years (I've had mine for 5 or 6).
Pretty much this. I went from Rivets to Walts a year ago...
Even though I've never really contemplated spending almost $900 on a pair of shoes, it's probably a good thing those Vass Alt Wien's aren't stocked in my size...  They look fantastic!
No problem, I've edited the listing above to include measurements.
 1. The sleeves look too short, especially on your left arm. Otherwise fit looks good to me.2. I can't quite tell with the neck, but the 2nd to last picture looks like moth damage to me.  I would expect wear to be more uniform - the patchy look where the inner weave shows through, especially when it looks like little craters in material, is what I have been attributing to moth damage.  It's depressingly common - only a few coats I've looked at don't have any.

As a point of reference, the vintage WWII one I'm selling has a pit-to-pit of 21.5" - I've been assuming it's a size 40.
 I'm 5' 7" 140#s - 30 in both Walt and Rivet.
A couple of years ago I geeked out on WWII US Navy peacoats.  I wanted one really badly and not just any coat, one as like-new as possible. So after scouring eBay daily for an entire winter, I ended up with a few just-about-perfect coats.  I'm anal "detail-oriented", so for each promising listing I sent a set of detailed questions. I even sent some coats back because the condition didn't match the answers.   However all ended up being a little big for me and they should...
