Jackets and Waistcoats

Our jackets are measured by chest size. Using a tape measure, take the circumference of your chest at the widest part. We allow an additional 4 inches for ease.


Measurements: Inside leg measurements are left unfinished at 37" to allow for turn-ups.

The fit is reasonably generous so if in doubt buy a size smaller. As a guide, we recommend taking an honest measurement around your navel (high waist). Take up to 4" off this measurement and buy accordingly. With the smaller sizes (28"-34") we advise reducing by only 2".

As a rough guide we have found that customers tend to buy these garments in the following combination of sizes:

  • Trousers 30" with 38" Jackets or waistcoats
  • Trousers 32" with 40" Jackets or waistcoats
  • Trousers 34" with 42" Jackets or waistcoats
  • Trousers 36" with 44" Jackets or waistcoats


Our hats sizes vary depending on the particular hat. We would recommend that customers measure around the largest part of their head (above their ears) in cm and then order accordingly.


For our collars, measure around the base of the neck in inches. When ordering collars it is usual to add 1/2" to the neckband collar size so a 15" shirt would need a 15 1/2" collar.


Measure the hand you would normally write with at its widest point in inches (excluding the thumb), then round down to the nearest half or whole number. This will be your glove size.
