* Common Shirt Sleeve Length Sizing Mistake:
Important Note: "Sleeve Length" is actually your "Arm Measurement" + ("Shoulder Measurement" divided by 2). Using the videos above as an illustration, our model's "Arm Measurement" was 25"; his "Shoulder Measurement" was 18". If we divide his shoulder measurement by 2, we have "9" (25" + 9" = 34" Sleeve Length).
For reference, here are some general sizing guidelines regarding "shirt sleeve lengths" that apply to most gentleman:
> 30/31 sleeve = usually 5'5" or shorter
> 32/33 sleeve = usually 5'6" to 5'9"
> 34/35 sleeve = usually 5'10" to 6'1"
> 36/37 sleeve = usually 6'2" to 6'4"
> 38/39 sleeve = usually 6'5" or taller
(NOTE: obviously, gentleman come in different shapes and sizes so the above guidelines may not be 100% accurate for everyone; however, it does serve as a good general guideline.
Important Notes: When selecting your vest, it is recommended to factor in both your "waist size" and "jacket size". For most gentleman, "jacket size" is a good guide to use. However, if you have an athletic build with a small waist, you may want to order based on your waist size. For example, suppose you wear a 42R jacket, but you only have a 32 waist. In this case, the size "Small" would work better for you. For less-athletic gentleman who have "larger bellies", you also want to factor in your waist measurement. For example, suppose you wear a size 50 coat with a 48 waist size. If you go based on just jacket size, the size XL may be be your initial selection. However, with the 48" waist size, a size 2XL vest would be a more comfortable fit in this case.
Long Version Vests:
Long version vests are also available in sizes Medium through 5XL for taller gentleman who are 6'1" or higher.
