Hello all! I have returned! Sorry I wasn't on for a while I got a
Few jobs and have been busy, very busy and I enlisted in the navy also so that didn't help Smile anyways I've thinned up since then and I'm wanting to know about my exact sizing for a winter uniform. My specs are height: 5'9" , waist size US 33, jacket size US M. Keep in mind I don't plan on wearing much underneath cause how warm these uniforms are Smile and I like a snug jacket and pants too! Thanks, David. Very Happy

Winter uniforms typically fit a little bit larger than the stated size because of the liner, but what I've noticed is a lot of soldiers wore jackets that were quite larger than their designated sizes because it allowed more arm movement with doing every day labor or combat scenarios.

What Taurus said, for winter uniform espectually jackets you would want to go a size or two larger for your own comfort and ease of movement.

Not a very good photo, but attached is a PV-2 winter uniform I bought awhile back, the set was issued as 50-4 trousers, and 58-5 jacket, that should show you how insanely large the coats were compared to their actual uniform size. Smile
