The back measurement is perhaps a unique measurement specific to what we require. Every tailor that does made to measure requests their own measurements and has their own style of taking measurements as well.
Simply measure from right under one side of the armpit (where the back meets the armpit) to the other, ensuring that the curvature of the back is followed. As for every measurement, you should be standing as you normally do so as to not to bias the measurement with a unnatural stance.
When measuring off an existing jacket, only measure from the back seam to back seam indicated by the black lines in the picture below. Do not measure right across like you would with other measurements. If you did it right, the back measurement should be slightly smaller than the shoulder measurement (anatomically, your shoulders are wider than your back). In this case, for this size 38 regular jacket, the shoulder is 17 and the back measurement is 15.

A staple in any man’s closet is a lightweight corduroy jacket (similar in shape and style to a denim or bomber jacket). It’s a slightly short jacket that is made looser in the torso and arms to account for sweater width underneath. It’s a style that would suit any body type.
