Blue Owl Measuring Guide: Jackets & Tops


It can be hard to figure out what size to purchase, especially when it comes to a Japanese brand! Here is Blue Owl's standard way of measuring all of the jackets and tops. We recommend that you measure your own jacket or top that fits you well, following this measuring guide. Then, you compare the measurements to ours. If you need assistance, please send us an e-mail, and we can help you make the right sizing decision.

For this measuring guide, we will measure a Mr. Olive 13oz raw selvedge Maverick jacket in indigo size large. For more information on the jacket, click here.

Step 1: Chest
First, be sure to button or zip the garment closed. Second, lay the garment flat on its front or back side. Third, lift the arms and pull the fabric tight across the chest.

Now measure straight across the chest from seam to seam. Multiply this number by 2 and that will give you the chest measurement. As you see, this jacket has a 39" chest measurement.

Step 2: Sleeve
First, lay the garment flat and pull the sleeve out straight, making it easy to measure. Second, start measuring from the shoulder seam. If there is no shoulder seam (like on a raglan sleeve), do your best to find the edge of the shoulder.

Now measure the full length of the arm. This will give you the sleeve length. This jacket measures 25.5" sleeve length.

Step 3: Shoulder
First, lay your garment flat. Now measure straight across the shoulders from seam to seam at the very top of the shoulders.

This jacket measures 16" across the shoulders.
Step 4: Length
First, lay the garment flat exposing the back side. Now measure from the collar seam to the very bottom of the garment.
Notice where we start measuring, which is just below the collar at the seam.
This garments length measures 25.5."
