Sizing Guide

Here is some additional sizing information to assist you finding your perfect jacket. Each specific item’s details are located in the Sizing section on that item’s webpage. Most people are 2 jacket sizes equally, with one being fitted and the other relaxed. Jackets measure snug and true to size. For a fitted jacket, usually your chest or bust size or one size up is best. The jacket will be 0″ – 2″ above your chest measurement and stretch to close. For a relaxed jacket, usually one or 2 sizes up from your actual size is best. The jacket will be 2″ – 4″ above your chest measurement and easily close. We recommend using a tape measure around your chest or bust to determine your actual size, and then comparing that measurement to the posted size charts and how you want your jacket to fit. We are always available to assist!

HELPFUL HINTS:

  • Men’s sizes 34 and 36 fall into the traditional x-small size range. 36 and 38 are small. 38, 40, and 42 are medium. 42 and 44 are large. 46 and 48 are x-large. 50 and 52 are xx-large. 52 is xxx-large.

 

  • Women’s sizes XXS and XS fall into the traditional x-small size range. S and M are small. M and L are medium. L and XL are large. XL is x-large.

 

  • To measure your chest or bust, hold a tape measure loosely around your chest at the largest part. Gauge how many inches are measured until the ends of the tape can touch comfortably. Jackets run true to size in inches and are designed for a snug fit with a shirt. Remember, you still have to fit inside this measurement.

 

  • Layering can take you into the next size. Each additional layer of clothing can represent and additional 2” in the chest, and that’s before you are wearing the jacket.  For example, if your chest is 38”, and you want to wear your jacket snug with only a shirt, then you may want the 38 or 40 jacket. However, if you’re wearing a shirt plus a sweater, then you’re increasing your 38” chest to about 40” around. If you prefer to layer with your jacket, then you may want to size up from a 38” chest to a 40 or 42 jacket.

 

  • Moving up one jacket size is a subtle increase in size, more like moving up a half size. Moving up 2 sizes is a more drastic increase in size and more noticeable.

 

  • Men’s sizes 34 and 36 are for the smallest and skinniest guys.

 

  • Larger guys usually want to size up.

 

  • Women’s sizes XXS and XS are for petite ladies.

 

  • Women’s size XL is not a plus size jacket. We are not able to offer plus sizes. However, women requiring a larger size should instead wear a snug men’s jacket, starting after size 42 or 44. For a fitted jacket, women will want to wear the same size jacket as their measurement under the bust. Many of our lady customers enjoy this fit.

 

  • Men’s jackets compared to women’s jackets have a different fit. Men’s jackets are designed for a masculine frame, and women’s jackets are designed for a feminine frame. A women’s jacket is shorter and slimmer while accommodating for hips and bust. Women can more easily move into the men’s sizes. We usually don’t recommend men moving into the women’s sizes, unless you are prepared for a very tight fit on a very slender frame.

 

  • If you have a current leather jacket you like the fit of, you can measure it and compare. Zip your jacket and lay it flat. Measure from armpit across the chest to armpit and multiply by 2. This is the chest size of your current jacket. Then you can compare this measurement to the fit you prefer to the posted size charts.
