Jacket size question 10/12

Hello,

I have a very quick question.

I've seen this jacket online which is listed as a womens vintage item UK sizes 10/12. However, it's actually a men's/unisex jacket. It's a lumberjack style red jacket which I'm interested in. I was wondering what size a womens 10/12 UK size would be for a guy. I'm 1,93 meters tall and I usually wear L size t-shirts although M fits me as well. Remind it's listed as a womens 10/12 but originally it's a men's item. I don't want it to be too large/oversized but I also don't want it to be too small and too skinny fit.

The seller told me it would look good on a medium/large guy. But I'm not sure since I'm 1,93 meters and wear L shirts mostly.

Any help would be cool,
Cheers

Women's sizing is hugely variable to start with, and women's cuts are significantly different than men's cuts. I'd be very wary of buying unisex garments if you don't have the opportunity to actually try on the garment.

It's this one http://www.lalalandvintageclothing.c...8/DSCF0531.JPG Which I really like, might not be the common style around forums like these, not sure hehe. If I'm at the wrong place here, apologies. Chest: 36" Length: 30" It's actually just a mens item. I don't know why it's listed as a womens item, probably just because it's fashionable for a women and the store sells womens items. I wear L t-shirts. Would those measurements be okay?

I think a transvestite forum would be best for this question. Seriously.
