From your measurements, it looks like you should've listed that as a 42. Looks like it would have fit me just about perfect.

Start thrifting rare, valuable jazz records, and I'll get you into Downbeat!

 

Actually, I wonder if anyone's found some late, great musician's wardrobe a la the Paul Newman find on Putthison. That would make for a good piece.

 

Edit: And the writer made a lot of money from that too. In flight magazines pay really, really well. Actually, I have some contacts at American ....

Woah ! thats wild . I had no idea what it was actually from. I just buy any vintage plaques, they're usually religious. 

 

Also, not sure what you mean by "thats not the dior you're looking for" , they're both very nice items.
