    Hi everyone,

    I recently bought a Made in Italy Brooks Brothers coat at a thrift store. Trying to figure out what size it is now. Here's the tag, which indicates 44 Regular.

    However, when I measure it, I get these measurements:

    Pit to pit: 23
    Length 32 ( Top of collar to hem )
    Shoulder to shoulder: 19.5
    Shoulder to sleeve: 25

    Which seems to be too small for a 44 regular. My guess would be somewhere around 40, but I'm not sure. I'm wondering if anyone here has a better idea. I searched online a bit, but the Brooks sizing guide on their site is really buggy for me.

    Thanks

    Sounds like a 44R to me. Definitely too large for a 40R, where I’d expect the shoulder width to be about 18.5” and the chest to be 21-21.5” PTP.

    Yeah, when I thought about it a little more, I think you're right that it's 44R. I wear 38R which has a 18 shoulder width, and if you're increasing by 0.5 each size, it would follow that this is a 44R.
