    Tiny (34S) Oxxford flannel sportcoat, 3 roll 2. It'd be a nice staple for the winter. I could see it working well with a pair of jeans.

    Wow, a size 34S with 25" sleeves. That's unusual, and the total coat length is about 29".

    The seller ought to say "Hard to find size", because it is[​IMG]

    Big shoulders for such a small chest, no?

    This coat is US 38

    How do you figure? It says the chest is 36 inches.

    Seller's right: there should be two inches of slack - a 34R will measure 36"

    HI,THE MEASUREMENT OF THE CHEST IS 36 '' AND SUBSTRACT 2 '' IT WILL YOU THE SIZE 34''.

    dkzzzz's right. Seller's math is good, but his equation's wrong:

    (1)COAT-CHEST FROM ARMPIT TO ARMPIT EXAMPLE (24+24=48-2=46)


    He subtracts 2 from his pit-to-pit to get the chest size; he should add 2.


    I don't get the crazy equation action, but even if you discount his subtraction, then the actual chest measurement is 38 inches. That won't fit a 38. What am I missing here?

    I see what you did there. It is still a 34S.

    Purdeys tie, pheasant pattern. If I shot things, I might be able to wear it, but it's a gorgeous tie.

    Could we even say it's 'purdey'?

    I don't know if it's real or not, not from those photos but you shouldn't really bid if you're not sure.

    I am truly astounded that any person would contractually obligate themselves to spend more than $800.00 for a suit that the bidder is not CERTAIN is authentic.
