    Hi kolecho,

    Do you think 1.6m would be enough for a jacket if I'm a US36-34? How much would be needed for a suit?

    I'm going to pull the trigger with a Dormeuil jacketing I've found on ebay if a jacket made of 1.6m cloth is doable.

    You should really ask your tailor.

    +1. I am quite small and US34-36. When I asked Hong Kong tailors (known for squeezing into shorter length), one tailor said yes and the other said no.
    Acutal width of the cloth may matter too. Some are narrower or wider than 150cm.

    Way too small, thats only slightly over what you need for trousers. Absolute minimum I've been told is 1.8m (2 yards) for a plain cloth for a jacket.
