The chest measurement of this jacket is double the pit to pit measurement. It’s 43 inches .

Yes but I’m more worried about the length of the jacket, do you think these measurements are correct because I was looking at other jackets and the measurements seem to vary from the period in which they were manufactured

My guess is that the 23 inch length could be a typo for 33 inches which sounds more likely

This is a vintage Steerhide jacket style 674SM, which because of it age is a smaller cut, a size 40 would be closer to a size 38 in fit. Based on the vintage main label and the red size label the jacket is from the 70's. I checked old records and back length should be 25", measured from under the collar seam to bottom of knit. Length of a jacket can be graded slightly in pattern length based on size. In vintage jackets smaller sizes having a slighly shorter length for based on at that time of average heights for smaller sizes.
