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. For men, there can be 3 jacket fits: super snug based on your actual chest size, slim fit with one size up from your chest size, or relaxed with 2 sizes up from your chest size. For women, there can be 2 jacket fits: slim fit or relaxed. 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!

MEASURING YOUR CHEST

MEASURING YOUR CHEST

To measure your chest, hold a tape measure loosely around your chest at the largest part. Note how many inches are measured until the ends of the tape can touch comfortably. This represents a jacket closing around your torso. Jackets run true to labeled size in inches and are designed for a snug fit with a t-shirt. If you are layering, measure with the clothes you will usually be wearing under your jacket.
MEASURING A JACKET

MEASURING A JACKET

We recommend measuring a leather jacket or similar style jacket in your personal collection and comparing your results to our posted measurements. When measuring, make sure to pull the jacket taught from end to end while you measure from seam to seam. Other than your chest size, we do not recommend measuring your body to find your STH jacket size. It’s always best to compare our sizing to a similar jacket you own.

HELPFUL HINTS

  • When sizing yourself, we recommend focusing on the chest or bust size. Please note, you still have to fit inside these snug jacket measurements, so sizing up is sometimes recommended. If you are between sizes or unsure, we suggest sizing up. The most common sizing error is resolved by moving up a size.

 

  • 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.

 

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

 

  • Women’s sizes XXS and XS fall into the traditional x-small size range and are for petite ladies. S and M are smaller jackets. M and L are medium jackets. L and XL are larger jackets. XL is an x-large jacket, but it’s not a big jacket. The Commando Plus and Defector Plus are also available in sizes 12, 14, 16, and 18.

 

  • Women’s size XXS is 00, XS is 0, S is 2, M is 4, L is 6, and XL is 8. This is approximate and we recommend sizing up if you’re between sizes or unsure.

 

  • 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.

 

  • Larger guys usually want to size up.

 

  • Men’s jackets compared to women’s jackets have a different fit. Men’s jackets are designed for a more masculine frame, larger in the chest and tapering in some at the waist. Women’s jackets are designed for a more feminine frame, accommodating for bust and hips. Having said that, everybody’s bodies are different, and many of our customers cross over to different styles for different fits.

 

  • If you’d like our assistance, feel free to email us your height, weight, chest or bust size, and how you prefer your jacket to fit. Sending a photo for reference is helpful as well. We’re happy to help!
