Austrian trousers size chart
People's sizes vary in two basic ways: height and width. Austrians have a distinct size system for their jackets and trousers. As with most size systems, one designation is used for tops and bottoms, but the numbers refer to the tops only. No worries! Our thoroughbred investigators have dug up the measurements for the trousers.
User waist maximum is usually the same as the actual measured waist of the trousers. With military trousers, the waist is measured slightly below the navel. You can also take existing trousers that fit, measure the waistband flat and multiply by two.
If you went through the table with precision, you might have noticed that the difference between chest circumference and waist gets smaller as the sizes grow. This difference is 12 cm for sizes Small and Medium, 10 cm for Large and 8 cm for X-Large and 2X-Large. When the body type is normal and the chest becomes larger, the waist usually becomes larger a bit faster.
