There is no way that is 17.5 inches, even with your poor photography. By the way, it is not difficult to lay a garment flat and correctly place the tape measure and photograph an item. Not sure why you have to hold the garment...

With that said, based on that second picture, I don't see this coat ever measuring out to a 17.5; 18.5 maybe, but probably not much less than that. I think accuracy to about...
Darn, didn't mean to post this in SW&D.

Here's another picture taken from an angle similar to the one in that guide. The measurement comes out the same, and in any event I don't see two points...
I asked for a return from seller UFN because he posted the shoulder measurement of an Aquascutum coat as 17.5" and I got it as 19", which to me is an egregious difference. I sent him a photo; his response: "I would say that even that picture is open to interpretation and that we don't agree how to take the measurements." I even offered to pay the shipping back to him, and he refused. Granted, I asked for the return several weeks late because I was on vacation etc, but I...

I'm releasing a bunch of stuff back into the wild. These are all items that I bought for myself but didn't work out or I just don't wear. I've sold several times on the forum to satisfied buyers and had many uniformly smooth purchase transactions. I also have the coveted 100% positive ebay feedback. All prices include shipping in the CONUS. If you're in NYC we could arrange drop offs. Outside that, please PM me. Any other questions, please ask and I will update...
