A man's vest for all shapes and sizes.
This twill vest flatters every male figure from Jack Spratt to Falstaff. The epaulets give the broad-shouldered look of a fighting man and the front closes merely by wearing a belt. It comes in many great colors to go with almost everything. Pictured here with the Lord's shirt.
Another big guy checking in... 46" chest, 48" belly and 18" neck, which is right in between XL and 2X on the size charts. The XL almost meets in front - if you want any overlap, go a size larger.
You did not account for why someone needs to order a 52 inch XXL in the chest size. I am a bigger person, overweight and so I carry a little more room in my belly. I was hoping that the size 52 inch in the chest would naturally accommodate my overall extra largeness, but it does not. I will have to try to lose some weight as you do not have any larger size and there is no room to take out the size. I purchased this for a wedding (medieval theme).
