Really? Isn't every 36S just about exactly this size/length?

Hope it's not against the rules to post in my own thread. I have a slim fitting Barneys Co-Op jacket in 38R that I'd be willing to sell. Handmade in Italy. Khaki cotton

Shoulders (seam to seam): 17.75 inches
Chest (pit to pit, laid flat): 20.5 inches
Length (from base of collar): 29.75 inches
Sleeve (shoulder seam to cuff): 26.25 inches

Also, on that note, since short jackets are harder to find:

(1) How much do tailors usually charge to chop about 1" off of a jacket's length?
(2) Any good examples of this? I'm curious to see how off the balance is afterwards. (Most on here seem to say that you can safely take off 1", but I'm not so sure)

Depends on the make and your build. Are you high-waisted, low-waisted, or average? What length shirt sleeves do you take? How much do you weigh? What size jacket and pant do you wear?

Shortening costs around $ 40-80 in my experience. 1" is normally about as much as you would want to do, but the real problem is pocket placement. Shortening RTW comes all from the bottom, so you have to be careful.

That's roughly that, but for some stupid reason they're still pretty hard to find as shops tend to start at 36R with 17.5" s2s.

(3) Kiton, blue diamante, super 100% wool, charcoal with faint narrow stripes, beautiful fabric with great drape, light weight, 3-2B, new condition.

I will be listing these soon, but I figured I would give you guys first crack at them seeing as I know how difficult it is to find 38R in great solid, staple suits. Please PM if interested.

Hey guys. I usually post on the SW&D side of things but I'll be interning in NYC this summer and will likely need a suit/blazer. I'm generally a size 36. Unfortunately, as a broke college student, I can't really spend much money, but I'd definitely be interested in anything you might have. Do PM if you think you have anything appropriate! thanks
