Sizing Information

Accuracy of your measurements is crucial for your uniform items to fit correctly. Be truthful; we aren’t going to judge you. If you give us the wrong measurements, your uniform won’t fit and NOBODY wants that.

All measurements MUST be in CENTIMETERS. All cloth measuring tapes show both metric and standard. This will insure that your item is accurately sized.

How to Measure

First, it is important to look at yourself in the mirror to understand that your chest measurement is at the nipple which is well below your armpit. So to measure your coat size, you don’t measure your coat at the armpit.

To get a good measurement of your coat lay it flat on a table or counter, Measure across the coat 1.5 inches BELOW the armpit. Double that measurement and subtract 1”. This is to allow movement. Your coat is not your skin. So if you have a size 44" coat it will tape 45".
