You don't say? Although, I'm guessing the trousers are of the bell bottom variety as well?

"Data compiled for millions of inductees shows the following to be the actual measurements of the "average" newcomer to the Army as he appears at the clothing counter of a reception centre: 5' 8" tall; 144 pounds in weight; 33 ¼" chest measurement; 31" waist measurement. From the tariff tables showing the frequency of size issues it is found that the sizes most frequently issued are a 7 to 7½ hat, number 9 gloves, a 15 shirt with a 33" sleeve, a 36 regular jacket, a pair of trousers with a 32" waist and a 32" leg length, size 11 socks, and size 9-D shoes. These figures may be taken to indicate the size of the "average American young man."

I was 5'8" in 9th grade. I was 144 lbs in 10th grade. By full size, I was 5'11", 165 and a 42R with tailoring necessary to take the waist into a 32.

I'm proud to say I'm still a 42R, but I plead the 5th on the remainder of the metrics.

This is fascinating, by the way.

Nah, the thrift thread. Nothing vintage about RG.

Awesome vintage hand-tailored pants from 1956, tailored in Verona, Italy. Beautiful flannel fabric, double pleats, everything hand-sewn, button-fly.

^ Great pants, handwork everywhere!

I love this Vintage Burberry Polo Shirt Sweater. Tons of details, saddle shoulders and deep red buttons. The merino wool is soft and has a wonderful hand.

Chipp cashmere jackets. The plaid is labeled 100% cashmere. The striped one doesn't have the cashmere label, but its the same fabric (maybe ever more plush). The union label on the plaid is sewn in in such a way that I can't tell whether it has the registration R or not. Both would appear to be late 50s to early 70s. The plaid is a two button sack, the stripe is a 3/2 sack. Other than the lining separating in a couple places on the plaid, they're both in excellent condition.

If Mr. Winston is still checking the thread, perhaps he could give us a better idea on the age.
