The usual rule of thumb is ordering a size up for foreign surplus clothing. A plus with Hessen Antique I think are the size chart they use. I've order from other surplus stores and the sizing charts are bad. I am 44/45" chest with big shoulders, L size shirts. I ordered X-Large Work Jacket and it is great at size 56, 46" chest. It was manufactured by Biruma and it might as well be fresh off the sewing machines. The Jacket size is perfect. No blemishes, no missing buttons, no signs of use, and nothing wrong to my eye. It is 100% Cotton and it feels stiff not in a bad way, close to a chore/work jacket feel. The two breast pockets are large. I fit my S8 in a thick waterproof case into the pockets no problem. It also has a 4x4" pocket on the inside of the right side. You could definitely layer this jacket over thinner sweaters as it is wide and the sleeves are wide. The wide sleeves can be a downside if you are not into them, but if layering then there a plus. Yeah for 14 for a Chore jacket that is basically brand new is a deal. Might buy another one just to Try out waxing or dying another color.
