I am in a bit of a dilemma - I have found a show coat that I really like by RJ classics, however, I can only find it on Dover. I have looked high and low, and while I can order it from Dover, they do not sell them in short, regular or tall sizes.
The RJ website “sizing chart” claims that a short is for 5 foot to 5 foot 3", while a regular is for 5 foot 4" to 5 foot 7". I am just over 5’3", probably by 1/4. I have calculated out that I would need a size 2, but would I most likely be fine in a regular and not short?
The website also says this, however, it is for children’s coats:
Sizes 12-16 Long: one inch longer
Sizes 6-20 Short: one inch shorter
On other forums/by my calculations, I would probably need a size 16 or 18, but most likely 16, which says a short is 1 inch shorter.
I really need some guidance on this. I’m only 1 inch away, possibly 3/4 of an inch, from the “regular” sizing. What do you guys think I should do?
BTW, I really need some answers soon - the show is in 2 weeks 2 days and I have yet to order my coat. Thanks!
