Debating between a BB3 and BB4. I normally wear a 40-42 suit, depending on the brand. And my pant size is 35-36 waist. I know black fleece fits slim....from what I've read, the BB4 corresponds to a size 44 BUT the actual chest measurements is 44...

Does anyone have a size BB3 or BB4 suit and if so, would you be kind enough to provide actual measureemtns? I would be much obliged.

Thanks.

Oh and for the shirts, I have both BB3 and BB4. The BB3 is a little tight around the waist and the neck. BB4 fits perfect.

They changed sizing as of Fall 2008.

I'm told my the Black Fleece store in NYC that on a BB4, shoulder point to point is 19.5 inches and the length of the jacket, from the bottom of the collar, is now 31 inches. Pant waist is a 36.

I suggest calling them if you need more than that.

I've told you all I know. They certainly increased the length, but I can't speak to the chest size.

You need to call the store and ask them.

The jackets were lengthened but the chest size is the same.
