I'm guessing with the action back, that's essentially another .5 to the ptp. My size 44 J24L is 22 ptp, but the action back and slightly wider shoulders makes it fit bigger.

Hi,
It's a very true and comfortable size 42, not restricted or snug at all. for example, I usually wear 42 in Schott, Vanson, and Lost Worlds. The GW Ventura fits me nicely and comfortably. Don't let the shoulder measurement deceive you. It feels just like my other leather jackets' 19~19.5" shoulder width. and chestwise, it fits like my other leather jackets' PtoP measurements of 22.5~23", no smaller. Each maker's pattern would be different and the actual measurements is not the only criteria to determine whether the jacket fits. There are indeed some cases that a jacket with smaller measurements than our other jackets still fits well.

some further information about the jacket.
As mentioned in the original post, the old zipper's cloth was torn. So, It was replaced with a 80s deadstock nickel Talon, The tailor did a good job of the repair. the stitching on the front is aligned with the original thread holes very nicely. on the inside, one can tell the new stitching is not completely aligned with original thread holes.
Just thought I had better give it a mention.
