CHEST CIRCUMFERENCE OF GARMENT

Because military garment sizing and labelling varies wildly, we state the wearer's chest size and height that a garment will fit. So measure yourself and look for that size in the options available.

How we ascertain a chest size

Jackets/parkas etc - what does "p-p" mean?

As these garments are usually worn with a shirt or jumper underneath, we measure each garment and take 2 inches (5cm) off to define a chest size that will comfortably fit.

p-p means pit to pit - i.e. the garment is laid flat and we measure across the armpits and double that distance for full circumference.

Greatcoats, trench coats and waterproof over-jackets

These garments are intended to be worn over multiple under-layers and so we make a 4" allowance on top of the wearer's chest size.
