H Lorenzo gave me a chest measurement of 16" for an Attachment wool coat in size 3 so tread carefully.

That's hilarious. I swear most people use their forearms or their dog to measure clothes.

I'm also between a 46 and 48 (though mostly 46) and had to go up to a size 3 for my blazer. Size 2 was actually painful to wear. But maybe if the knit's kinda oversized (they usually seem to be) you could get away with it?

Also, if it helps, the H Lorenzo dude I emailed told me Attachment is super consistent sizingwise.

I hate when I message sellers about measurements and they clearly have no idea how to measure

PM'd some guy about a +J hidden placket shirt in Medium and he said the chest was 15" and shoulders 19" hahaha

It depends on the piece. Generally, it's

1 - 34
2 - 36
3 - 38

yeah, i have the same blazer as bam! in a size 2 and it is definitely for slim-true 46s only. if you're a smedium, you'll need to go for a size 3.

Worth noting that Attachment's online shop http://attachment-ec.com has measurements for every piece.

Truly hope my Attachment stuff is not too small, haha T_T

Can't read Japanese frown.gif

Also do they ship internationally? I tried using google translate but the translation ended up being ambiguous. I'm guessing yes though.

No, Japan only.

I can't read Japanese either ... it's not hard to figure out ...
post #65771 of 109053

pro tips:
chest is larger than shoulder, always
length is longer than chest, always.
there is your SF rosetta stone.

Look for measurements like 18" shoulder, 21" chest, 25"-26" length for a bomber type jacket, longer length for long coats but same type shoulder/chest.

sooo....If you are seeing 25" shoulder, 18" chest, 21" length, then you are reading it wrong.

I'm usually a size 34/44 (or perhaps 35/45 if that existed) and Attachment size 2 fits me perfectly. If you're a size 36/46 then you should probably be ordering size 3.

Look at the model's height and weight on http://www.essence-web.jp/. One of their models is 178cm 64kg and always wears size 2. He is very close to my height and weight. Looking at sizing charts this puts him at about a 35, same as me.

My advice is if you're a small 36/46 and are ok with tighter fits then you could try size 2. But if you're solidly in the size 36/46 category then go with size 3.

What the H. Lorenzo guy said about Attachment sizing being consistent is very true. Of all the labels that I've bought multiple pieces from, Attachment has been the most consistent. Out of 20+ Attachment pieces that I blindly ordered in size 2, literally none of them fit me poorly.
