Should I still be looking at EU 48 with that size for my chest?

 

Again guys, I really appreciate all the help. Learning a lot before my next suit purchase

No. More like a 44 maybe a smallish 46

30.5" is a proper jacket length for your height. If you want a shorter jacket for style try 30 or 29.5 but not any shorter than that.

For what it's worth, I am 5'2", 120lbs and the measurements on that jacket are pretty much what my MTM measurements are. Way too small for you.

I'm 6' and 195lbs with a gut, and I wear a 42. So I second what dreamspace said.

He already said it's a Euro 42. An amazingly small suit.

Don't put too much trust on Indochino's website. They have a reputation of randomly changing measurements that you enter.

glad no offence taken , none intended. Often, off the shelf is not a disadvantaged choice from Made to measure. You are at the mercy of the mtm consultant, and most of them will be shop assistants stepping up to the plate. So maybe just look off the peg in that price range. Open - closed quarters person start reading about balance, some of it in the tech section,

Snap! Although I'm shy of 192lbs and I wear a UK 40R, which I had tailored to take in (!). I generally have a slim figure, although I too, sadly have a little bit of a gut which I'm in process of getting rid of at the gym (plenty of cardio-vascular activity on the running machines and cross-trainer, plus sit-ups and light weight work for definition).

 

Thanks for the link, dreamspace. It's time I get measured - both for suits and shoes - to get an accurate basis in reality rather than guess-work; especially as I'm in the market for a sports jacket (although it will be RTW from a retail outlet than online), and when I up my gym work, I should be getting down to my idea weight of 176-177lbs.

 

P.s. I like your style in your second set of pictures, JCB 522, but please could you incinerate that neon pink monstrosity in your first set!
