Wrap a measuring tape around your head. Not too tight.
Give your measurements to one of our customer service specialists or use the chart above to determine your best fit.

How to get a really good fit:
First and foremost, if you have any questions about size, call customer service at 888-436-1031. We have actual garment measurements for every item and we’ll be happy to help you find the perfect size.

Measure yourself with a tape measure using the instructions below. (Or have a friend do it. Serve sangria, as a bribe.) Jot down your measurements and compare them with the body measurement sizing charts found below
and on each product page.

HAT: Measure circumference of your head where a hat would naturally rest (normally above the brow).
WAIST: Measure around your natural waist or, if you prefer, a little lower, where you may actually wear your pants.
NECK: Measure the circumference of your neck. (Add a little for your Adam's apple.)
SEAT/HIP: Standing, with feet together, measure around the fullest part of the hips. Don't cheat.
CHEST/BUST: Measure around fullest part, but with tape under your arms.
You'll need a friend to do this for you. (More sangria.)
INSEAM: Use a well-fitting similarly styled pair of pants. Lay them flat, with seam on seam.
Measure from crotch to bottom of hem.
ARM/SLEEVE LENGTH: Your arm must be slightly bent to do this correctly. Then, measure from center back of your neck, over the shoulder, down the arm, past the elbow (slightly bent) all the way to wrist. (Your friend may be needed for this too.)
"FOR MEN AND WOMEN": What does that mean? They're men's sizes, in fact.
On women, these items will be attractively oversized; sleeve length will be long.
TALL: All of the measurements are the same as the Regular Size, but we’ve added 1” to the sleeve length and 2” to the body length.


Penobscot River Vest

There is no proof that Thoreau wore a vest like this one while travelling up the Penobscot in 1846, however the dashing yet understated look is definitely inspired by life downeast and correctly conveys the wearer is a man with superior taste. Heavyweight, wears like a jacket minus the sleeves. Zip front. Two front ticket pockets. Fully lined. Classic fit. Wool blended with poly for durability and stretch. Dry clean. Imported.

Pretty swell vest!

I'm digging this vest well enough. Thing is, I got one of the last ones in my size which causes to suspect it might have been discontinued. Shame, if that's the case.

Great for cool seasons

As a professional driver, my look is complimented by a vest. It seems to be made and cut well. As always, early reviews may be updated after they are time tested.

A daily cold weather piece of clothing for me here in Maine.

Great. I live in Maine on Penobscot Bay, and have purchased most of my cold weather clothing from LL Bean in Freeport. However, this vest is now a daily wearable for me on cold days. It is a good fit, heavy enough to keep out the cold, but not a burden to wear, and the quality is very high, e.g. a strong zipper and good lining.

the extra layer I needed.

Love this vest. I bought two. It's thick enough to smooth out my least desirable contours, and still thin enough to fit under my normal jacket. Hope you like it too
