Using just the modern day garment sizes will usually work for slender individuals who are ordering the common type of "in-stock" garments, such as US Sack coats, Trousers, Vest and Greatcoats. If a person falls into the "generous" sizes category (larger than 44), we are much more able to help fit them correctly if we have measurements to compare with. Measurements take the "guesswork" out of fitting clothing and eliminate the costly "exchange process" with in-stock garments – custom orders are not returnable.
Email your notes and measurements as directed in the Measurement Chart shown here to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 832-416-1028 (leave a message if necessary). If you have to the ability to download to fill out the Measurements Chart then scan email that is also a great option.
Please measure carefully! These garments can only fit as accurately as the measurements provided.
