Polo Ralph Lauren beltback tennis jacket

http://www.ebay.com/itm/272050112972

This jacket was made in Italy for Ralph Lauren around 2007 and was sold under the Polo label.  It is white with a slubby corded texture, pleated patch pockets and a belted back.  It is half-lined, like the original 1930s jackets it is based on. While tagged a size 44, I’ve had a couple of these jackets over the years, and they’ve all run small.  With a 44″ chest measurement, this best fits someone who wears a size 40.

Chest (pit to pit): 22″ (doubled = 44″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 19″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 26-3/4″
Length (base of collar to hem): 32″
