Sizing For Suits And Jackets
11 months ago – Sat, Jul 01, 2017 at 09:32:53 PM

I have had some questions about sizing, here is our size chart and below are my recommendations.

Jackets are pretty simple, I recommend ordering one size larger than your t-shirt size.  This will allow for clothing underneath and for bending.

  • For suits the 2 most important categories are chest size and neck to ankle.  You want to find a size that is a few inches (2 to 3) under your total height on neck to ankle and then from there you can adjust up if you need to for chest size(you can also compensate here for midsection size.)  If you have a larger diameter mid-section than you do chest this can make the crotch tight if the suit is sized to your chest measurements because it will raise the crotch.

Surveys are being sent out as of this morning. Backerkit will be handling the surveys to collect information about your purchase. You will also have the ability to add on additional products through backerkit. In the coming days a temporary online store will be set up online through backerkit to continue pre-selling until our eCommerce site is set up and inventory is in stock. I hope everyone has a great weekend and feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Thank you,
