Good Luck with this---20" across ?  Your looking for a guy that wears a 34-36.  Or a VERY rich kid.

Cool Though---Not knocking it, Nice find

Thanks Rich - Bought this at a vintage second store in 1980.  Both husbands have worn this jacket no problem.  My first husband was 5'10 and 180/190 lbs.  Second husband is 6 feet and 163 pounds.. so guess it depends how big your chest is.  It is interesting the size is 42 on the inside D pocket (shown in picture).  Guess a size 42 in the late 20s early 30s is different from todays sizing.  Yes it is very cool and rare.

Yeah the sizing really sucks on these antiques---I had a size 54 original Horse  Buco and by newer sizing it was good for someone needing a 46-48. A collector in Japan scarfed it up----Sold it on ebay.
