1. What's the difference between a jacket and a coat?
A jacket is generally shorter and only comes down to the waist, while a coat is longer and may come down as far as the wearer's thigh.


2. How do you purchase jackets, coats or vests?
These items are usually purchased based on chest size. A small is for a 34–36" chest, medium for 38–40", large for 42–44", XL for 46–48", 2XL for 50–52", 3XL for 54–56", 4XL for 58–60", 5XL for 62–64", and 6XL for 66–68".


3. How do you measure your chest size?
The best way to measure your chest is to do so while wearing typical clothing that would be worn underneath. Using a tailor's tape and with arms relaxed at your side, you should measure around the fullest part of your chest. You need to keep the tape under your arms and around your shoulder blades. The number of inches equals the size.

4. Is there any difference in ordering insulated versus non-insulated items?
Yes. When purchasing insulated outerwear items, it is a good rule of thumb to order one size larger than your shirt size.


5. What's the difference between "tall" and "regular" sizes?
For non-Carhartt jackets, coats or vests, a regular size accommodates a man who stands between 5' 8" and 6' tall, while a tall is geared toward a man between 6'1" and 6'3" tall. For Carhartt items, a regular fits a man between 5'7" and 5' 11", while a tall is compatible for a man between 6'and 6' 3" tall.


6. How do I size my coveralls?
Coveralls are sized using both the chest and inseam measurements. Because they are worn over other clothes, you should take those measurements in the clothes you will wear and size the coveralls accordingly. When buying insulated coveralls, you should consider purchasing them at least one size larger to take into account both the clothes underneath and the heavier lining.
