Size guide

Jacket No. 1 has an oversize fit. Calculate a positive ease of approx. 25-30 cm 10-11.75 inches in relation to your bust measurement.

The sizes are based on European standard sizing, ie. 34/XS (36/S) 38/M (40/L) 42/XL (44/XXL) and suit a bust circumference of approx. 80-85 (85-90) 90-95 (95-100) 100-110) 110-120 cm 31.5-33.5 (33.5-35.5) 35.5-37.7 (37.5-39.25) 39.25-43.25) 43.25-47.25 inches.

For instance: You measure 89 cm 35 inches at your widest + 30 cm 11.75 inches = 119 cm 46.75 inches. Meaning you would choose a size S with a finished circumference of 120 cm 47.25 inches.
