    That looks very nice, but I'm a 38R. The auctioneer states that it's a 37. Is it possible to have a tailor increase the chest? I would assume not. What a shame, because that is a very nice jacket.

    Seller seems a bit snippy on the whole chest measurement issue.

    He does this in all his auctions. It's really not that hard to measure the chest of a jacket. I don't know why he refuses to provide that measurement.

    What the hell are "Italian style sleeve buttonholes"?

    functional, perhaps. I know functionality is relatively unrelated to it being Italian, but the rest of his auction seems pretty dumbed down.
