In A. Harris' post on measuring for Ebay, he says that the chest measurement is unalterable. I was looking at a suit on Ebay, listed at 42R, that had as its chest measurement 47.6 inches. That seems a lot, according to Andrew's post. MI measured several of my suits and they normally run about 45 inches in the chest. My question: Can't you take an inch or so out of the chest from the seam that runs down the back? I really want/need this suit, but am really stuck on this thing about all that room in the chest. The reast of the measurements are fine. Would that much room in the chest be a big problem that couldn't be altered?
