The white show coats we sell are designed to be worn with just a shirt underneath. If you intend to wear a sweatshirt or heavy jumper underneath your show coat then ensure you wear them when you measure yourself.
Also, if you will be wearing your show coat whilst display livestock or large animals, please rember to allow a bit of room for movement. If the coat is too tight it will restrict your movement.
The best way to ensure that you get the right size is to wear the normal clothing you will be wearing underneath your coat and measure the size of your chest (measurement 1 in the diagram below) and if you do require some extra movement add an extra inch/25mm to your chest measurement. Once you have your chest size make a note of it as you will require when you buy your coat.
When you buy your coat, you will see a pull down menu for the various chest sizes available. If your chest size is in between the sizes shown, it is best to go for the next highest size. Example: your waist size is 37 inches, you will need to select a 38 inch chest.
Men: measure around the fullest part of the chest, 2.5cms below the underarm area – 1
Women: measure around the fullest part of the bust and across the shoulder blades – 1
Children: measure under the arms around the fullest part of the chest – 1
