To get the right size jacket you must measure. To do this place a tape measure around the chest and make sure the tape is level all the way around. Measure the circumference at the widest part of your upper chest just under your arm pits. For a second measurement to help in your decision making and getting a good fit – please measure your waist.
Find your waist by…
To find the natural crease line of your waist, stand straight with hands at the side. Then bend sideways running the hand down the outside surface of the leg. This movement will produce a crease at the waist so place your measuring tape on this crease. Return to standing straight and place the tape measure around your waist at your crease point (usually the narrowest part of your torso).
Take the measurement in centimetres. If you don’t have a tape measure use string or wool then lie this along a ruler.
Consider how you would like to use your jacket when selecting size. A fitted jacket can be hard to wear with lots of layers underneath it. If you want to layer under your jacket or feel like you have room to move consider whether you should go up a size. If you measure between sizes also think about this.
