Are the uniform sizes correct?

    Hello.  I have been in the auxiliary for three months, and am in the process of putting together my uniforms.  I have a complete ODU, and Tropical.  I would like to get a SDB jacket, combination cap, and winter dress shirt, in addition to the wash and wear pants.  My questions are about the cap, and the SDB jacket.  Is the jacket true to size, or smaller?  My flotilla commander, not a large man by any definition, told the flotilla that he had to get a 46 reg jacket.  He looks to be a 38 or 40 short.  As for the cap, I bought a garrison cap in size 7-5/8.  It just does fit; the pleat at the top opens a bit, but other than that it is fine.  Had I gone with the size/measurement the website said to use, I would have bought a 7-1/2, and had to send it back. 

    While I am here, does anyone know if the winter dress shirts will be available again when they are authorized?  The ShopCGX website has been out of my size, and anything near it, for some time.

    Thanks.

    My combination cap was pretty accurately sized. So was my SDB. That said, I was visiting the Academy and the guys in the uniform shop helped both times.

    I've found the sizes are accurate when compared the measuring instructions provided by the Uniform Distribution Center. However, they are not accurate if you try to use the your business suit or typical dress pants size as your guide. For example, if you are 5'9" tall and measure the largest part of your chest with tape and get 44", you should order a 44 Regular SDB Coat, and a Large/Regular ODU Parka. However, you'd want to order a 46R Trench Coat because the UDC guidance says to order one size larger than the SDB coat.

    In general the military size charts are a little ‘tighter’ than civilian equivalents. If you’re used to a 36 waist be prepared to buy 38 or 40.
