NWT Polo Blue label suit 42R

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm putting up for sale this medium gray pinstriped polo suit. It just wasnt feasible to alter it to fit me so my loss is your gain. I wish i could keep it, it's such a nice suit.


It is tagged 42R

chest - 21.5" <-- all I could get, even with a liberal tape
waist - 20.5"
length - 29"
sleeve - 25"
shoulder - ~18.5"-18.75" (widest at seams) 19" (widest part in all)
Pants
waist - 17.5" (measured straight across top, buttoned)
inseam - 33.5" (from crotch seam along inside of leg. With about 3" material inside hem, with about 2.5" looking usable) It was too long for me and I'm 5'11. Should not be an issue with the length of jacket you are dealing with.

Hopefully these are fairly accurate. To me, the jacket feels slightly bigger than a 40 in the upper part (shoulders chest) and is generous in the waist (seems like what a 42 should be). Overall I'd say its like a large 40S or a slim 42S... maybe 41S .

I can add more pictures once I get back to a digital camera, feel free to request a view.

Asking $175 +shipping

Have you read A Harris' jacket measuring tutorial?

I think you might have more luck trying again with the measurements, because those you provided make the jacket look like a 38-39S, which I'm sure probably isn't the case.

Yeah, I was trying to follow that guide. Maybe its because I was using a bed to lay it on. I will revise tomorrow.

Oh its a 3 button just in case it wasnt clear.

A length of 29" definitely makes it a short.
The coat looks odd because the sleeves appear as long as the jacket.

measurment is closer to 39S... do you have the pant waist measurments?
