Sizing: No size is indicated as it was custom tailored, but it should fit a size 46, or a size 44 if you wear a jacket underneath - please rely on the following measurements for fit, either comparing them to another coat that you may own or your body measurements, allowing at least 1” less for fit (4” at the chest) or more should you wish to wear a suit jacket underneath:
Shoulders: 21 1/2” across seam-to-seam
Sleeves: 25” long
Sleeve Inseam: 16 1/2” long
Chest: 49” around, taken under the arms
Waist: 46” around
Hips: 46” around
Overall length: 43"
Condition: It is in very good condition with no pronounced wear, tear, staining or odors - a little wear to the buttonholes, and the coat would benefit from a dry cleaning and pressing. Otherwise, this looks like it saw moderate use and was well stored over the years.
This is a good example of 1964 men’s fashion - easy to wear, nice quality!
