    Sorry to quote my earlier post but I think it may have been missed and there are enough senior members active right now that someone must know the answer! I really want to pull the trigger on a jacket but unsure of the shoulder measurements.

    My shirt shoulders are 9" on one side, 9.5" other so 18.5" total and this jacket has shoulders that are 17.75".

    I think we are well and truly beating a dead horse here with this eBay argument. You guys might just have to agree to disagree, purely for the sake of keeping up with the thread. Lets change the topic shall we -

    What's everyone cooking for dinner? I'm just about to fire up the barbie for some marinated pork cutlets with mash and steamed vegies, Washed down with a Hoegarden.

    I wouldn't go off a shirt but rather measure it against a well fitting jacket you already have.

    ---EDIT---- Lachyzee's post is really well written and has made me reconsider.

    I guess the point I am trying to make is: if you know your maximum bid and don't mind losing the item you want, then you won't ever need a sniping tool (superfluous) or have to participate in item monitoring. For everything else, a sniping tool is needed.

    Son is right now cooking up veal pelmeni with his own bolognese sauce. Smells fantastic.

    For dessert we will tuck into some Indian sweets to usher in Diwali tomorrow. Yum.

    Rogan Josh from scratch and IPA to wash it all down...

    I found Spooks very enjoyable - MI5 type thing and for a laff IT Crowd,The Office. Sopranos is a given.

    Theres a lot of room for variation when measuring shoulders etc - unless you have another person and one of those big protractor type thingos.

    Shirts aint jackets.

    Jackets are trickier than it seems (seams) - outside seam to seam measurements on a jacket aren't always a true reflection on inside .

    Measure and existing jacket - but getting within .25 ' accuracy is hard.

    * I'm curious how you found the middle of your neck?
