SIZING AND ORDERING
     
WE'RE VERY EXPERIENCED IN ENSURING THAT CUSTOMERS GET THE CORRECT FIT THE FIRST TIME AROUND. PLEASE CALL, FAX, OR E-MAIL WITH QUESTIONS.
 

IMPORTANT SIZING FACTORS:

A) Our styles differ completely from the current
     marketplace fashion crap, oops, we mean crop:

    1) They're not oversized --
    2) don't have "Euro" dropped or raglan shoulders    --
    3) are neither constructed of thin fashion hides like
         lambskin nor processed to feel broken-in or distressed
         from the get-go.
    4)
they are true-sized as traditional suits and shirts. 

B) Because of (A), our products will be generally trimmer in cut. Trimmer doesn't, however, mean prohibitive. It does mean that if you wear, say, a 44R but, alas, "temporarily" have a little more gut than you prefer, you might do better with a 46R. If you're an Odd Size, say a 43R, you'll almost always go up to the next even size.

Example:   0001  0004   0005   A-2 JACKETS:  

Some companies advise going up to next size in this style. We don't. If, say, you're a genuine 42, of regular build,  try a 42R -- if you try a 44R, it probably would feel fine. BUT, you wouldn't know if a 42R felt better. Conversely, if the 42R feels tight and you love the jacket, you just swap it for a 44R. But you know the right size then.

The A-2 especially is a trim jacket, designed in 1931 when Americans were smaller and thinner. (In WWII the average AAF pilot had a 36-1/4" chest and a 30" waist.) Ours copies original dimensions exactly. It's not a loose, blouson-like travesty like the current USAF issue. (Our only change was to add a little length to the sleeve because men had shorter arms then; further it appears that the A-2 was designed to permit the use of flight gloves, so the sleeve was shorter).

We are often asked to provide "shoulder measurement." In genuine tailoring no such measurement exists as there is no seam:seam length to measure. Further every (pseudo) "shoulder measurement" would differ according to armhole and sleeve configuration, which differs in every style and every mfg. Others, however, will provide this "length." We will not, as it has nothing to do with correct fit, misleads more than leads, and we're sticklers for correctness.

LONG/SHORT/BIG SIZES

LONG/SHORT & BIG SIZES (32-54) 25%-60+% EXTRA COST. (Example: Size 50R: 20% Extra; Size 52R: 40% Extra; Size 54R: 60% Extra.) In some cases can be higher, for instance if we do not have a Pattern in a particular CUSTOM size.)

(*The above require consultation to ensure accuracy: we often find that due to the amateurish way clothing is now sized, men often think they're LONGS who aren't. Our LONGS are generally for men over 6'3" with a 36"+ sleeve length. Our standard LONG adds 2" to the body and sleeve of a Regular item.) Not stock items. In order to keep customer risk to a minimum we require that prior to our undertaking any custom work like this, the customer examine and try on the closest size to the one he needs. This takes much of our guesswork and the customer's financial liability out of the job. 

ALL LONG/SHORT AND SIZES 50R AND ABOVE ARE CUSTOM ORDERS

We apologize if this policy seems Draconian, but as a small specialist manufacturer we need to control our inventory so as to satisfy dedicated, serious customers. Please, however, confer directly with us if circumstances require that the policy be redefined in a particular case.

CUSTOM ORDERS

We will gladly undertake practically any custom work a Retail or Trade customer requires. However, we must caution the customer that TRADE/CUSTOM ORDERS are NOT RETURNABLE. If you design it, it's yours. All TRADE/CUSTOM ORDERS must be PREPAID and Credit Cards are Not Accepted unless waived by us.

In this regard, we highly recommend the customer interested in Custom work try on and inspect a regular production item, if possible, before initiating the Custom Order. This way he's assured of sizing and satisfaction issues. We are always working on Custom Orders, so this is an area of full  expertise, but must insist the prospective customer understand we have no use for a modified jacket in our inventory. Procedure: after inspecting/trying on regular production item, customer returns signed Custom Order authorization to us with payment by check, MO, bank transfer. (We've been fleeced by frauds and tirekickers, so to protect ourselves and our customers we've put this system in place. We're the best, but not all customers, regrettably, are as well.)
