    Is there a standard description you could point me to as to how to measure my suit jacket? I always see nice looking jackets for sale in b&s but am unsure how to read the chest, shoulder measurements. For example a chest of 20 1/2 inches, shoulders 19 inches. Are these only from the front? Is the chest directly under the armpit? Thanks for the help
