39 coat with a 36 waist? That's not right.
Hello.

After reading your post, I double checked my original measurements.

  • The suit jacket measures 20 1/2 inches from armpit to armpit across the front with a total chest circumference of approximately 41 inches which is a modern 39 R.
  • The trousers' waist measures 18 inches from side to side across the front with a total waist circumference of 36 inches.

This suit was tailored to fit me (I do have rather narrow shoulders and HAD somewhat of a thicker midsection at the time I wore this suit regularly). However, after about six months of a changed diet and a regular exercise routine, I have reduced my suit size to a 38 R with a 32 inch waist.


Thank you, -M-

^ Also measurements "+/- an inch or so"?

...
Hello.

The measurements are pretty spot on, but I originally added that little "disclaimer" to account for slight differences that may arise from how it was laying when I took the original measurements. Either way, I just edited it out to eliminate any confusion.

Thanks, -M-

Can you comment on the construction (full/half canvass/fused, working/non-working cuffs). Also, how old is this suit?
