    Will do MissSis (Ben?). I'll be in town at the beginning of May, so it might have arrived before I jet out again, and I'll know if I need to send it down south.

    Many thanks to BTJepson for sending this out. I look forward to receiving it.

    The 2 button notch lapel jacket is, for me, the absolute greatest of all the American 1930s jackets. Truly iconic. Can't wait to have another one!

    Elmo was certainly a scrawny one. Arrived yesterday. The jacket is a solid size 35, which is good, as that's my size. I will need to lose that extra weight I've put onto my waist, though; the jacket is very tight as is.

    Thanks again, BTJepson!

    I'm glad it arrived allright! There seemed to be a bit of material in the waist that could be let out. And, yes, Elmo was underfed to be sure. Wish it fit a little better on you, but maybe you can get it to work!
    Snazzy, jazzy and razz-a-ma-tazzy!

    That's good. If it had been a 39R I might have had to strangle myself.
