JLM Store's Sukajan Sizing Guide
The ultimate sukajan souvenir jacket measuring guide to know what fits you and allow you to buy the perfect jacket for you.
Our Sukajan Souvenir jackets are mostly preloved items or deadstocks from the makers themselves, thus, they have different sizes and most of the time, the jackets we offer here have only one (1) size per design. To help you in assessing if a certain Sukajan jacket will fit perfectly on you when it arrives, we have decided to come up with this guide / tutorial.
To start, get your favorite jacket and a measuring tape.
Measure the following parts as shown in the photos below:
Height, width, arm length (top) and arm length (bottom).
WORDS OF WISDOM:
Please don't trust the fitting size of the maker's unless you are very sure and familiar with that brand - for example if you are sure that size M of a Brand A is perfect for you, please don't expect the same applies for every other brand that we have. Please keep in mind that while there are S, M, L or XL sizes written, they may appear smaller on Westerners due to the fact that mainly these sizes are geared towards and made for the average Asian body size. So if you are usually USA Adult Men's M, then maybe L or XL (one size or 2 sizes higher) would be safer bet for you. That may not be the general rule but sometimes it is the fact.
A lot of people are asking like this - "What is conversion of this jacket into US Mens or Womens? " - Honestly, we dont know and we don't care about the conversion either. We are talking about absolute terms here based on our measuring system, that is why we are providing our own sizing system to make sure that we are talking about the same standards and speaking the same measurement language.
If you are not contented with that, just send us your fitting details and send a couple of pics, that should give us the imagination to give you a sound advice.
So if in doubt, please follow our comparison instructions regarding knowing your exact base measurements and compare that to the figures we have in the listing, that would be more empirical in determining and comparing if your measurements are within the fitting of the jacket you like. However if you have a Tailor Toyo size M Jacket before, then you can trust or expect that you can get the same fitting when you buy another design of Tailor Toyo for size M of that particular design or model. Still it is better to be sure by making sure your dimensions compare within the "approximate dimensions" we provided. Please have enough allowance in mind before buying so that you can be sure of everything before committing to purchase a product.
In short, please understand that size is relative from one brand to another, what maybe S for Westerners maybe M for the Asian body size so they are all illusion, let us get down to the digits and facts of measurements given in centimeters, if you are familiar more with inches or other measuring systems, please consult GOOGLE Sensei and do the conversion yourself, it is just as easy as typing "Convert 10 inches to cm" or vice versa. GOGGLE Sensei is the best and won't get you wrong.
Some people are even asking for inches conversions, please do help yourself and type it in Google and you get the exact answers you want.
Example: Height (64cm) x Width (52cm) x Arm length - top (74cm) x Arm length - bottom (50cm)
After getting the measurements, compare the numbers with the dimensions provided written on the product description. If there are no dimensions written on the page, you may contact us using this form (and don't forget to include the link of the item).
If by chance that you encounter Sukajan jackets with only height, width, and arm length dimensions, please take note that the "arm length - top" and "arm length" are just the same.
Before checking out, we highly recommend that you measure your on-hand jacket first and compare it with the Sukajan jacket that you like. The reason for this is very simple, we do not accept later on as a reason for returns for that matter the fact that "the jacket does not fit me" or things like that and to that effect. The idea is to determine your jacket's actual size and compare it to our sizing details and ADD or HAVE some additional allowances for possible differences before making a decision whether to take the size or the item listed here.
Here is the YouTube tutorial we made for this purpose solely:
If in doubt, please send us the following details / information about you:
1) A cropped body photo of yours, including your build (slim, average, muscular or big such like that)
2) Tell us your preferred fitting either of the following (just, slim fit, loose, extra loose)
3) Any other specifications or requests of your needs
It would help if you can send us your weight and height as well so we can imagine and advise you properly regarding the fitting as well.
Here is our contact form and details. This is the best way to determine and consult with us the fitting of the sukajan or jacket of your choice then.
*We treat each case and consultation with utmost privacy and uphold integrity in handling them so please do not worry about it.
*CAUTION / WARNING / DISCLAIMER*
At most, this is just a guide, it is the ULTIMATE responsibility of the buyer to MAKE SURE that this jacket will definitely fit the way you want it to be. We do not take responsibility for any discrepancies between your expectations and the actual outcome later on - so please have some EXTRA ALLOWANCES in your ESTIMATES.
We advise you to double check on us the sizing and fitting from the start to avoid further issues and problems.
WE DON'T ENTERTAIN RETURNS, REFUNDS due to miscalculations, misinterpretation and misunderstsanding of the size and the overall estimations from your end compared to that we have provided in our listings. It is your duty to make sure that it will be OK and will fit you before you commit to buying the item and ultimately paying for it.
We act on "good faith" in measuring each and every item and jacket we put here for sale, but due to human differences and having enough room for human analog error - ours is not a perfect system and definite guide to the exact decimal point if you understand what it means. It is always helpful to have allowances in your estimates or at least confirm facts and details before making the ultimate decision to buy - because when you buy and after we ship your jacket or order, we can not cancel for the above and any other reasons.
We treat each transaction seriously and as a legal commitment to our terms as explicitly and comprehensively written here and in our store pages. We are very serious in serving the public and we expect the same from our patrons to be educated and have some common sense as well.
We expect our buyers to read everything we wrote here as a guide and to take it as a "guide" and reference in the purchase decision making process.
To consult with us, the moment you send an inquiry, please attach or send a cropped body photo already of yours for our realistic advice so we can save time on answering and asking questions back and forth. We can send you photos of the jacket upon actual fitting of the staff so you can imagine and think about it carefully as well. Please do not hesitate to ask for that if needed. We are providing all possible terms and means to allow our clients not make a mistake and make the best decision and judgment as much as possible. Thank you.
