I just measured my oxblood Ion cardigan. I got sick of all the back and forth, and it occurred to me that while I've been wearing my navy Ion regularly, I haven't actually worn my oxblood one, except to check it for fit.
For a medium, unstretched:
The shoulders are measure 19"
Pit to pit measures 21" (actually, exactly P2P is 21.5, but if goes in immediately afterwards, so I used the smaller number)
Back length is 25.25". However, this is measured from the back of the collar, which is not really accurate, because the collar is not like a jacket collar, which hits at the base of the neck. It actually hangs down lower. Including the collar, the total length is 27.5" I would say that a good approximation of the length of the jacket, based on the shape of the collar, is probably 26.5".
It is not a really slim fit. The Stark, both old and new, are slimmer, in the same size. The older fit starks are also longer, but the newer starks are shorter.
Hope that helps everyone. I would highly recommend against sizing up on this due to the construction of the shoulders.
