 N.B   As regards ' Condition ' , a 1/10 would be something which is beyond repair but of cultural significance for some reason, 5/ 10 would be wearable but far from perfect, 10/10 is , ' has this even been worn ? '
 As regards size, Items are sized on their chest and to be worn so that the garment follows the line of the body without being tight. ' regular' refers to a jacket designed to fit a man up to 6' with evenly proportioned limbs. With the sleeve finishing on the junction of the hand and arm.
 Fit, Throughout history the human form has changed, and so have tailoring / manufacturing conventions and techniques. The classic examples are the the design of shoulders in pre war jackets / coats and the slowly dying convention of showing shirt cuff beyond the cuff of the jacket.


 Please use the Fit and Size as guides to the size rather than the measurements, as unless you have a near identical jacket from the same era and tailor they can be misleading, especially with tailcoats.
