As I replied to Padraig, broadcloth will work fine.  Both Erik and I are
about the same size, about 38-40 around the chest, 32 around the waist and
maybe 34-36 through the hips.  I like mine a little loose so and 2-4 inches
for each measurement, I haven't a clue about accross the shoulders.  Ok so
maybe I need to eat more and put on some weight :P  I'd like mine to extend
to about 2 inches above the knees and we're both around 6 feet tall.  Short
of actually making the measurements when I make the tunics, that is as close
as I can get as far as figuring how much material to buy.  Hope this helps.
My idea is to make the red/black tunics like what Padraig and Connor wears,
just a "little" smaller ;)
