How to Measure for a Bronte Jacket

In this video we show you how to measure for a Bronte jacket. With or without a body protector.

Size is something all on its own, every brand has its own size specifications. The safest way is to measure if possible, is from a jacket of a similar style. Even if you have a jacket that's too small, use it as a guide and add the extra on, this makes the job 90% easier.
Bronte jackets are generous in the body, so sometimes it's best to work from body length and shoulder + arm measurements. A jacket with a sleeve that’s too short doesn’t look or feel right. So, please don't do a guesstimate to get it right. Once you've decided on the size and it's embroidered it cannot be returned! We take no responsibility for a customer’s own choice.
We want to do everything we can to help, but it's the customer who takes responsibility for every decision, be it size or design.

Zip your jacket up and lay it face down, please see the picture to your right as an example, any style jacket is better to get a guide from than nothing at all. So many of these jackets are presents and it's almost impossible to guess the size, but remember this is a blouson style, supposed to be worn loose.

The shoulder and sleeve measurement are going to need more than a standard fitted jacket, to allow plenty of room for movement when riding or working around the yard, so it stops the sleeve riding up and looking too short. A good guide of sleeve length is to measure down to the knuckles, it’s also very important to think about what will be worn underneath, baggy is fine in the summer but too small in the winter is a problem.

If it’s going over a body protector, make sure the body is large enough and remember it will lift the sleeve because of the shoulder padding on the body protector too.

Take your time to get this right!
