    Hi all,

    I'm looking for brand recommendations for my measurements. I’m looking for blazers and sport coats size 38/38L (I think). I’ve been sized by a tailor and told my size is 38L, but I’ve had a very hard time finding size 38 jackets with wide enough shoulders (there are a few, but not many).

    My measurements are as follows:
    Chest: 38
    Shoulder:18.5
    Waist: 31.5
    Rec. Jacket length: 32 (although I’m okay with a littler shorter).
    Sleeve: I have pretty long arms – 35 shirt sleeve, not sure what that translates into for a jacket

    Can anyone give me any brand recommendations that generally fit my measurements or should I try to size down on the shoulders a little bit? It seems like most brands fall in the 17-18 inch shoulder measurement range for a 38…

    Thanks!

    38s seem to vary between a 17 and an 18.5 shoulder width depending on brand, date of production, cut, etc.

    i myself am also struggling to find a good quality navy blazer as my last one (a prl) met an untimely death.
