Sizing letter jackets is not an exact science and, unfortunately, the online fitting guides will only "get you in the ballpark." Please keep in mind how many more years the student will be wearing their jacket to give them growing room. A good idea is to have your son/daughter try on their friends' jackets if you are not able to get to our store to try the jackets on.

These items are custom-manufactured and cannot be returned once production has begun. Please fully review your order for errors before submitting.
