    Yeah there is a degree of uncertainty, but you can save so much money... What do I have to do in order to cover myself from a mistake?

    Two suggestions:

    1. Try to try on the exact size and model at a bricks and mortar retail store
    before you order. I realize that this is not always possible.

    2.Make sure that the seller offers a full refund.. Style Forum affiliate eHaberdasher,
    for example, does. SF affiliate Shop the Finest only offers store credit.

    This is excellent. I have it bookmarked. Nevertheless, if you are buying from a private party,
    you are dependent on their competence in measuring a garment. I recently returned a
    jacket that was "new old stock" and classic. But, I was unable to close it even though
    the seller's measurements indicated that it would fit.

    One piece of advice: Don't.

    If you search here you will find the path littered with people complaining about garments that don't fit, despite measurements, and then struggling to get remakes.
