Shoulder to shoulder: 19.5. Measured at the front of the jacket.
Measured from the back collar seam to waistband 26. The jacket has a fully working rare Kwik zipper.
There are some mold stains and some drying to the hide, but in my experience I've cleaned and conditioned worse shape jackets to excellent wearable condition. As above, it's a size 50, I believe the largest they made, which is also quite rare. The knitted cuffs and waistband are in good shape.
The lining has some small tears at the collar (pictured) and by the armpit--this is NOT significant. Add a piece of history to your collection!
