What does the 10 inch chest tolerance mean in sizes. What size do u buy if u r a 46 inch chest.
Thank you for your question and interest in our products. The chest tolerance refers to the allowance for ease of movement and room for extra layers. Please note, you would still purchase the size that matches your chest measurement. If I can be of any further assistance please do not hesitate to contact me.

Hi, Reference Mens Barbour Border wax jacket. I think I'm correct in saying a size 40 is a 40 inch chest, but when you look at the product measurements alongside size 40, it says chest 127.2 cm. On my tape measure 40 inches is 103cm. Confused!! Roy.
Hi Roy, Yes a bit confusing indeed. First check the size guide from Barbour and allow some extra for comfort and if you will wear extra layers. I am a 48 chest but got a 42 jacket. So what you get is really 3 or 4 fits between the sizes. I had the exact same problem but do go by your measurement and allow the extra. The fit is very precise and only increases by 3 cms. each time. Hope this helps.

I’m 6ft have a 44 “ chest but need 2 jumpers in icy conditions and like a loose fit for a border jacket do you suggest the size 48 or 50 Thank you Jim.
Dear Jim, I have a 42" chest but I too like a loose fit so I can wear plenty underneath. I ordered both a 42" and a 44" but found the 44" far too big and returned it. I am very happy with the 42". I suggest you order a 44" and a 46" and try them - the returns process was very simple.
