    Hi all,
    My grandfather bequeathed me a beautiful Ferragamo leather jacket that unfortunately does not fit me. I'm going to list it on ebay but unfortunately I don't know the size. I do have a tape measure though, and I'm hoping someone here can tell me how to accurately get the jacket's measurements so there are no surprises when my buyer receives it. Thanks in advance!

    zip up jacket
    lay it flat, put arms out to the side
    measure from pit to pit, right at the seam
    measure from top of shoulder seam to end of cuff
    measure from top of shoulder seam to other shoulder seam
    measure from neck to bottom
    flip over, measure from back of neck to bottom

    it's helpful if you use a tailor's (soft) tape measure and take pictures of the tape measure laying on the jacket so customers can see exactly how you measured it.

    go to a website like ssense.com, click on a leather jacket, then click "size guide" and you will see the measurements outlined above in a visual format
