SIZING:

Small size - Garment measures 40" in the chest and 34" in the waist. Your body will have to be about 4" SMALLER than these measurements for ease of movement. So if your chest measures between 34 - 36" and your waist is 30" or smaller, this size will fit you.

Medium size - Garment measures 44" in the chest and 39" in the waist. This means your chest measurement needs to be between 38 - 40" and your waist should not be larger than 35" for this size to fit you.

Large size - Garment measures 48" in the chest and 43" in the waist. This means your chest measurement needs to be between 42 - 44" and your waist should not be large than 39" for this size to fit you.

XL size - Garment measures 52" chest and 46" waist. Which means your chest needs to be between 46-48" and your waist can not be larger than 42" for this size to fit you.
