I'm looking at a tagged 36R from the 1958-1965 era (US NAVY style tag). The seller's reported measurements are:
Sleeve (shoulder seam to end of cuff): 25.25"
Shoulder seam to shoulder seam: 16.25"
How normal are these? 19.75 * 2 = 39.5 - 2 = 37.5" (the .75 seemed like a lot to ignore as per Peacoat's sizing guide), which sounds good for my 36" chest measurement. My question is, will this 36R leave enough room for layering?
Also, that shoulder to shoulder measurement seems suspect, and I'm tempted to write it off as incorrect measurement. Professional opinions?
I'm considering buying, as the price is right.
