     How to measure yourself
Men's Jacket and Coat Sizes
The best way to take your chest measurement is over a lightweight shirt, close but not tight. Please do not allow for thicker clothing, as we allow for this.

This is the measurement we prefer as this is the most accurate.

If you are buying a surprise present and do not know the exact chest size, a good idea is to find a jacket that fits the person well and button it up, then measure from armhole to armhole. This measurement is always 6" bigger than the person's actual chest size.
For example, if the measurement is 24", this doubles to 48", you then subtract 6" giving an actual chest size of 42".

If you are in any doubt about sizes, please ring our helpline.

Ladies Jacket and Coat Sizes
For ladies, we do not use sizes 8, 10, 12 and upwards as these are not very accurate.

The best way to take your bust measurement is over a lightweight blouse, close but not tight. Please do not allow for thicker clothing, as we allow for this.

If you are buying a surprise present and do not know the exact bust size, a good idea is to find a jacket that fits the person well and button it up, then measure from armhole to armhole. This measurement is always 6" bigger than the person's actual bust size.
For example, if the measurement is 21", this doubles to 42", you then subtract 6" giving an actual bust size of 36".

If you are in any doubt about sizes, please ring our helpline.

Trouser and Skirt Sizes
Measure around your waist, just inside where you like to wear the top of your trousers. Make sure the tape is snug but not over tight.

Hat Sizing
An average head size for a man is 23" (58.5 cms in European Sizing or 7 1/8 UK sizing and 7 1/4 US sizing). The average head size for a lady is 22 1/2" (57 cms in European Sizing or 7 UK sizing and 7 1/8 US sizing).
How to measure your head
Take a tape and measure around the widest part of your head, slightly above the ears (usually around the temple). This should be close but not too tight.
