I have been wearing Dale woolens for ages and think there is nothing better (forget plastic fleece…this is the real deal). All my zip sweatshirt sweaters are XL and fit my 46Long torso just right. So, I ordered this in XL. It arrived and is a beautiful jacket, and very trim in fit. Unfortunately, the length and fine-tooth zipper on this didn't go well with me in simple movement…getting in and out of my car would burst the zipper at the bottom. It would readily re-zip and would be fine again until I bent over, squatted, sat in the car again and (un) zzzzzip.
Unsure if it was a faulty zipper or perhaps not a match for me, I called for a replacement and noticed the XXL was available; typical STP, shipped the XXL right away not even waiting for my return. It arrived and fits much better…and no unzzzziping.
Though the XXL is listed as 50-52", I think this is a bad translation of Euro sizing. The XXL jacket is trim and very flattering and a 48 is US fit.
