Austrian jacket size chart


Mittauspaikat

People's sizes vary in two different way: height and width. Austrians have a distinctive size system for both jackets and trousers. Regarding jackets, chest width is in centimeters and length in Roman numerals. These are measurements of the person, not the garment!

Width

Small84-92 cm88-92 cm
Medium92-100 cm96-100 cm

2X-Large116-124 cm120-124 cm
3X-Large124-132 cm128-132 cm

Width is measured from the widest part of the chest. This is easily achieved with measuring tape. Overcoats have already some extra in size to accommodate clothing worn under them, so do not order a bigger size "just in case". Without exception, that leads to too big clothing not fitting properly.

Austrian M75 service shirt, olive drab, surplus

7.99 USD
Once again a prime example of good military surplus - thick for a collared shirt, the Austrian Bundesheer used these as the outer layer in summer months. An excellent choice when you need a mid layer shirt that doubles as a light, somewhat windproof, fast-drying outer layer - and want to look good while you chew bubblegum and kick ass.
