Burberry Coat Sizes

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
This is worthy of being a separate thread. My "new" vintage Burberry rain coat - age unknown (though shell 67% polyester, 33% cotton, lining 50/50 if that helps in dating it) - has a tab inside a pocket saying "44 REG." Burberry's current website relates their 44 coat to an "XS" (i.e. "extra small)" yet my coat seems like about a medium or 38-40 U.S. size. Is something missing here? Has Burberry changed its size definitions over the years?

One might be referring to the European 44 size, which is an American 34, thus the x-small.

Lafont, you should discuss this with forum member Executive.

Thanks, however "Executive's" profile says he doesn't want to receive E-mail. I contacted the Administrator....
Would anyone else care to respond to this size question, please?

This size equivalent thing gets really hairy! Attached charts, which comparis British and American men's coat sizes, completely disagrees with that Burberry has on its own webpage. If one plugs in the "44" under "British," it also gives a "44" for American here.

British and American coat sizes are the same; EU sizes are approximately 10 higher.

I've run into many who say that, but how would you explain the chart on Burberry's own website?

Size S M L XL XX XXXL
Rainwear & Outerwear size 46 48 50 52 54 56
Chest size (inches) 34 36 38 40 42 44
Chest size (cm) 86 91.5 96.5 101.5 106.5 112
Shirts & T-Shirt size 2 3 4 5 6 7
Collar size (inches) 14 15 151/2 16 161/2 17
Collar size (cm) 36 38 39 41 42 43
Trouser size (inches) 30 32 34 36 38 40
Collar size (cm) 76 81 86 92 97 102

I had another chart on before (what became of it?) but it specifically referred to a "RR REG." as an "XS ("extra small").

So, according to the above chart, a "44 REG" tag on a Burberry coat could be equivalent to a U.S. "extra small," equivalent to a U.S. "38 or 40 regular," equivalent to an
American 44, or equivalent to a U.S. 48.

I don't see him listed under "Members." How to reach?
Of course I've contacted the Great Burberry themselves but no response so far - not even one of those form e-mails (i.e. "We've received....") yet....
