Hello.  

 

After reading your post, I double checked my original measurements.

 

  • The suit jacket measures 20 1/2 inches from armpit to armpit across the front with a total chest circumference of approximately 41 inches which is a modern 39 R.  
  • The trousers' waist measures 18 inches from side to side across the front with a total waist circumference of 36 inches.  

 

This suit was tailored to fit me (I do have rather narrow shoulders and HAD somewhat of a thicker midsection at the time I wore this suit regularly).  However, after about six months of a changed diet and a regular exercise routine, I have reduced my suit size to a 38 R with a 32 inch waist.  smile.gif

 

Thank you, -M-

Hello.

 

The measurements are pretty spot on, but I originally added that little "disclaimer" to account for slight differences that may arise from how it was laying when I took the original measurements.  Either way, I just edited it out to eliminate any confusion.

 

Thanks, -M-

^ OK. It's just that for some, half an inch in a sleeve or shoulder measurement makes all the difference (especially shoulder, which is very nearly untailorable).

Can you comment on the construction (full/half canvass/fused, working/non-working cuffs).  Also, how old is this suit?
