Size Matters

Ok, I'm sure someone's used that one before...but here's my question. Quite frankly I rarely use patterns, but I am knitting the Best Beloved a vest made from handspun wool plied with Tibetan Mastiff fur, and he found found a vest on Ravelry that he likes, so I am going to do my best to follow this pattern, but am stumped from the very beginning.

When directions say "To fit chest 92(97:102:107:112)cm; Actual measurements: Chest 98(105:112:120:127)cm" and his chest measures 104 cm, which measurement am I looking at? Are the actual measurements the final measurements of the vest?
