I'm in Texas. Shipped Monday and arrives Wednesday. Hoping this one is the right fit.

The large ended up fitting great. XL would've probably felt OK but the sleeves would have been too long and it wouldn't have retained the fitted look. It's minimally snug but I am able to wear a T-shirt and UHF underneath. For reference, XL UHF's fit me snug or very fitted. I ended up ordering the black version too. That comes in Monday so I'll probably take a few pics of both and post them.

Is there any remote possibility to have a little bit of extension of the arm length on this one? I would be glad if I can get an additional 2 inches plus on the arms length.

The arms are actually really quite long already, as they are on most IH jackets and shirts. I size down to L in these and the cuffs still come up to my knuckles.

As @neph93 said.  Or as I would say, no.

Sorry.....

Is the chest too wide if you size up?  I have to agree with the guys that the sleeves a little long as it is.

The M65 isn't supposed to be form fitting, though I'll say that IH has made the most flattering cut of this jacket.  Sizing up shouldn't look ridiculous, especially if the arms are running short for you.

Having some trouble with sizing and was wondering if anyone had some advice. I wear an xxl in the latest Iron Heart UHF (purple western) and was debating between the L and XL. The sleeves on my flannel are a little long and hit mid hand but most of the time with arm bending. The sleeve retracts and bunches so it’s ok. Haven’t washed it yet either. I’d be wearing the m65 with a heavyweight tee and UHF usually.

Measurements are key, but based on your description and my own experience with this jacket, sizing down one from your standard UHF seems to be the way to go.  This jacket also has velcro at the wrists that you can use to keep the sleeve from slipping too much.

I agree with the above. XL is the way to go. Going two down to L would be too much. I am XL in shirts and have an L in this. I can just about fit a shirt/tee combo under it.

@Piratedoc

I agree with the boys above. 1 size down from your UHF size is golden for an all-round fit. It has been known to go down two sizes for a really trim-fitted look. I'd go with an XL initially for sure.

Feel free to drop me a line at shop@ironheart.co.uk to have a direct line for sizing help from the crew.

Cheers!

@Piratedoc Adding my two cents to what others have already said.  I just took receipt of this jacket.  I took Graham's advice and sized down one size from my normal IH denim or UHF size.  The fit is spot on.  I can wear a t-shirt and UHF or denim shirt underneath and the jacket fit is fine.  I even tried it with a hoody underneath and it's wearable - a little snug in the upper arm and shoulder area, but still wearable.  Specifically, I order size large in this jacket and I almost always wear XL in IH shirts.

Superb fit.  “Medium”
I coulda gone w/ small even
But the medium allows for room with UHF or Denim shirt
1 size down is spot on.
Or 2 sizes for more fitted
