    I think he does... He just has the coat shoulder folded back on itself

    Thanks, JC. DO you think based off of my measurements, this would be a good fit? I'm still new to all this and I'm not sure how much an 1" or so will affect particular areas.

    I thought I've been measuring stuff correctly, but if I haven't, please let me know.

    Jon, what does "across 2nb button" mean? is that the waist/stomach size? Is there any waist suppression in the sport coat?

    Yeah, I guess I should start writing waist or something more clear than (across 2nd button). Measuring is still a process — still ironing out the kinks.


    How do you tell if there's waist suppression in the coat?

    The only way I know how is to wear it and describe to the best of your ability. If you're a a fit guy, and it comes in to a noticeable degree, I'd write that and describe how much. Hopefully, someone can help us out here. There's only 4 hours left x|

    I think it would be a little tight in the chest but probably doable... You usually want the chest measurement of a coat to be 3-4 inches more than your actual chest measurement. The measurements for @jon's jacket look more like a 38-39

    I measure just below the sleeves (pit to pit) and across the button you'd button (top button for a 2 button, 2nd button for a 3 button) this is usually enough to tell if the waist is suppressed. Like the chest, you'll want that measurements to be 3-4 inches more than your pants waist measurement.

    My pit to pit is 20.5". Does this mean in the future, I need to buy suits that are at least 24.5" Pit-pit?


    Sweet Jesus, I've been measuring my shoulders incorrectly; I didn't follow Andy's method, and instead used indochino's and got 19+ instead of 18 3/16". IC lays the tape on top of the traps, why doesn't Andy?


    Nevertheless, the shoulders on this should fit me fine, no?


    Update*

    Does this mean I shouldn't buy it, JC? =[


    By the way, if what you say is true, should I consider myself 40L?

    Nope... 20.5 pit to pit is 41" around the chest (double the pit to pit)...


    You'd want to look for 44-45 around the chest, or 22-22.5 pit to pit. You wear essentially the same size I do with longer arms and torso.


    Shoulders are more forgiving than the chest... I've got jackets from 18-19" that fit me well. More than that or less than that and they look off.
