    Thanks, akatusuki.

    Does this go for the down liner as well, or is the shearling thicker than the down?

    The down liner is pretty thin.

    I'd recommend size 46 in fishtail parka regardless if you want to add liner later or not.

    I have size 48 fishtail parka and size 52 shearling liner. My chest is ~ 41" and I can wear it very comfortably with or without the liner.

    Thanks, guys.

    Joona, just to be sure -- so you can fit a size 52 shearling liner into a size 48 fishtail parka? I would have thought both would have to be the same size.

    Does sound like I need a 46 either way.

    That's correct. Size 52 shearling liner buttons perfectly to my size 48 fishtail parka. I took a bigger liner because I think a size 48 liner would have been too tight in the chest for me.

    My 52 liner is too small for my 52 short parka.

    That's strange. My 50 down liner fits inside my 50 snow parka perfectly. Maybe it runs slimmer than the parka, though.

    Sounds like your jacket was too small even without the liner.

    Anyway, based on measurements at End and my experiences, it seems that some jackets (like the M65) have pretty narrow chest and others (like the fishtail parka) have plenty of room there. So it would make sense (at least in my mind) that for slimmer jackets the liners in same size fits nicely, and for roomier jackets you might want to size up a little, depending how the jacket fits without the liner. That's of course just my opinion and I have only first hand experience with fishtail parka and +2 sizes bigger liner.

    all very odd with the liners.

    have the parka and the field both in 52 with a single winter liner that fits and is used with both. granted the parka is roomier compared to the field but have no problems fitting the liner.

    edit.

    should have mentioned that the winter liner is size 52.

    Okay, after 3 months of not fitting this jacket I've decided to sell it. It's a black short parka size 52 with a olive down liner. This would fit a person who normally wears M-L

    What is "not fitting"? Is that like "not feeling"?

    it's a bit on the small side. I can wear it without a liner, but even then it's too small.

    Sounds like a very expensive mistake.

    Has anyone machine washed a field jacket?

    I've had mine a while now and according to the label it's suitable for machine washing?
