Use Peacoat's guide to identify the year the coat was manufactured. Any coat made prior to 1980 will be Kersey; after, Melton.
(Correct me if I'm wrong!)
yep that is correct
hope that people who have them post measurements here. or buy different sizes and figure out which one is best and return the rest. unfortunately that's just how it is.
okay, possibly for the mil spec, but for sure its not accurate for the authentic/navigator - these i can say for sure run big. i measure a 37" chest and I had to size down to a 34 in the authentic to finally have it fit right
my first try was a size 36S - based on the measurements from the chart, and it was too big in the chest and too short in the sleeves. measured at 20.5 for the p2p on a size 36. now with my 34R fit is great and that measures a 19.5 on the p2p.
