I'm going to buy my first cold-weather jacket and I'm wondering how much I should factor the lining into the sizing.

Current best-fit leather jacket: 18" shoulders, 21" pit
Looking at, for example, a shearling sheepskin jacket: 19" shoulders, 22" pit / 19" shoulder, 23" pit

Does the shearling padding add enough extra to the jacket that they're going to fit about the same?
Those of you who have both fashion jackets and warm weather jackets with padded interiors of similar styles, how much do your measurements vary?
