Sizing question for Gail

Hi Gail

I recently came across an IS 674 MS from the 70s-80s.  (LOT 0302 BNDL 003).  It's in good shape.  However, the eBay seller I got it from ripped out the size tag on the label and cut off that part of the tag in the pocket! I bought it based on price and his description of the model who wore it in the ad, which he said was his son.
 
It doesn't quite fit.  I want to resell it, but with full transparency.
 
I'm thinking it's a 46 Long.  Laid flat, it's 23" from pit-to-pit (like a 46 I have), but it's 25" from collar seam to the bottom of waist cuff instead of 24".  It looks noticeably longer than all the others I have hanging side-by-side, with the same length hanger.
 
Any help would be appreciated.
 
Thank you
 
Joe...

Unfortunately we no longer have the measurements of these older vintage jackets. The best I could do was check old catalogs for back lengths. They list the back length as being 26" for a regular and 28" for a long size. The jacket would be measured from under the collar seam to the bottm of the knit waistband. It is possible the knit has tighten up if the jacket was professionally cleaned. In none of the catalogs was the jacket listed at 24", but catalogs older then 1983 did not list the lengths of jackets, possibly jackets from the 70's were shorter.
