I bought this on eBay from a seller who gave incorrect measurements, but never bothered to return it. Annoying, since for me this is pretty much the perfect SC.

So I can't really vouch for its provenance. Judging by the white thread which still hasn't been removed from along the tops of the shoulders, the jacket has not been worn much. The only blemish I can find is a small hole on the upper back. I can't remember if it was there when I bought it.

The only size info is handwritten: it says '42 C'. I'm not very knowledgeable, but the measurements don't seem to correspond to either a UK/US or an Italian 42. It was sold to me as a 36R which is a bit more like it, but still not right. I am 5ft 10", with a 36 chest and a 30" waist, and it is too big for me in both those areas. The jacket length is fine on me, and the sleeves are 0.5" too long.


Shoulder seam to shoulder seam: 17.5"
Shoulder to cuff: 24.5"
Centre back seam from bottom of neck to hem: 29"
Front of chest: 20.5"
Front of waist:: 19.75"

Price includes 1st Class Recorded to the UK. Add £10 if you are in the US.

this is in between 36~38 if you ask me. Why don't you just alter it, take in the waist should do it no? Shoulder is pretty close to what a 36 would be depends on how much padding there is.
