Our clothing measurements are taken with garments laying flat on a table and taken from edge to edge. Chest measurements are taken from under the arm holes and doubled. The best way to see if an item will fit you is to take a similar one you own and measure it laying flat, then compare measurements. They do not need to be spot on, just similar. If you know your body measurements, remember that some garments especially blazers, suit jackets and non-stretch fabrics require a spare inch or so for movement room so it hangs right and you can move your arms.
Vintage sizing is very different to modern day sizes, they usually are at least 2 sizes smaller depending on the era of manufacture. So to ensure a good fit please go by the measurements provided. I measure the garment laid flat edge to absolute edge then double, which give the maximum, you will need to measure your own clothes to compare sizing
