    I am unpinning this topic as it is linked into the HOF Glossary / Best posts thread now and I'd like to clear up the top of the board as much as possible.

    I have been given many men's suits for our Christian Men's Job Corps. How do I measure them to determine the size

    Jeez Brian.

    Eaglegroup, measure as shown in the first post on this topic, across the underarms of the jackets. Generally, double the underarm measurement and subtract 2-4 inches and you could call that the chest size of the jacket.

    Giving this thread a bump...

    Is there a chart somewhere here that outline general suit measurements?

    For example: For size 40R - chest = 44"; shoulder = 17.75-18.5"; jacket length = 30"

    Thanks.

    What about the size of the armpit hole? What is the best way to find if the armpit will fit?

    This is a fantastic resource, thank you. Finally I feel confident to wet my toes a little and make an online suit purchase.
