Measuring tips & notes:
Always use a tailor's tape when taking your measurements! A carpenter's tape will not bend properly and your numbers will be off. Tip: if you don't have a tailor's tape, simply use a string to measure yourself, then lay it flat and measure the string.
When measuring for sleeve length, hold your arms out at a slight angle, not straight down.
This can vary depending on personal preference, but a good rule of thumb is to take a size that's 8-10'' greater than your bare chest measurement for the anoraks, and 6-8'' for the Raglan. For vests, since they're worn closer to your body, 1-2'' should be okay depending on how many layers you'll wear under it.
If you're shopping for a canvas anorak to layer over a woolie, we recommend you choose a canvas anorak 2 sizes greater than your wool anorak.
All fabrics are preshrunk.
