    Well, that's up to you... It will be a bit snug in the chest, I'm guessing. You can get it let out up to 1/2" at the center seam if need be... Costs like $30 or so


    Yes, I'd say you're a 40-41L

    Well, poop. The suits Fedodo has(and many others for that matter are always 1-2" too small in chest and 0.5-1" too large in the shoulders. How do I find a suit that'll fit me?


    If I measure my shoulders according to how IC asks clients to do it, will it be more accurate since it is contoured to my body? I have big traps.

    My suggestion would be to go to thrift stores and try a lot of things on. Find things that fit well. Maybe you'll find a good suit, maybe not, but you'll find out how things fit. Measure the ones that fit well and you'll learn your coat measurements.


    You'll want to buy things that are as close to your measurements as possible so you don't have to spend as much on getting it altered.

    Sorry, Jon. GUess I'll have to stop by target after all.


    JC, most of my measurements were from a jacket, save the bicep, thigh, and chest circumference measurements. Is it odd to find measurements like mine that are wide in chest and a bit more narrow in the shoulders? Is it normal to have shoulder measurements and chest measurements at my height and weight?


    And a quick clarification: if I measured a jacket Pit-pit to be 20.5-21", that means I need a jacket that is 44-45"? Why is that if my source measurement is a jacket?
