STOCK Size measuring instructions:


The vast majority of our customers fit into a jacket that is a stock size (i.e. 44 Reg or 48 Long).  To figure out which size will fit you best, follow the instructions below.


Chest Size

This measurement is best taken using a cloth tape measure, while wearing a t-shirt.

Lift up your arms and wrap the tape measure around your chest at the widest point (you can then put your arms down).

Breathe "normally" and don't over inflate or exhale too much.

Take the measurement (not snug) at the widest part of your chest.

Add 2" to 3" to that number to reach the next "even" number up. Example: If you measure 43 to 44, you would order a size 46. If you measure 41 or 42, you would order a size 44.


Short / Regular / Long

5' 4" to 5' 9" - Short
5' 10" to 6' 1" - Regular
6' 2" to 6' 4" -Long

If you are taller than 6'4", contact us for an Extra Long or Extra Extra long.

 



MADE TO MEASURE Jacket instructions:

 

If you find that standard jacket sizes don't fit your frame due to an overly athletic build (very broad shoulders with tiny waist) or a stout build (rounded shoulders with a large waist), then we can gladly make a jacket tailored to your frame.  We will need the following measurements, as well as your height and 3 pictures of you in a form fitting shirt from the front, side and rear view.


Chest 

Lift your arms and wrap the tape measure around your torso at the widest point. Put your arms down. Stand tall and "at ease". Do not over inflate your chest. Just stand and breathe normally.  Measure loosely around the chest at under arm height while wearing a t-shirt. 

 

 

 

Waist 

Measure loosely around your "True Waist" at your naval while wearing a shirt.


Half Back

Put on a well fitting suit jacket. Keep your arms at your side. Find the center back, center seam, starting at 6" below the collar. Measure from that point to the seam where the arm meets the jacket body (roughly 4" down from the shoulder). If you do not have a suit jacket, measure from the spine (4" below base of neck) to the edge of your shoulder.


Sleeve Length

Put on a well fitting suit jacket. Keep your arms at your side. Measure from the shoulder seam (the top of the sleeve where it meets the jacket body) to the cuff. If you do not have a suit jacket, measure from the edge of the shoulder, down your arm to where you'd like the sleeve to end. Typically, jacket sleeves end 1.5" to 2" above the base knuckle of the thumb, breaking at the wrist or slightly lower. Roughly 1/4" to 1/2" of shirt sleeve should show below the cuff of the jacket.
