Freeman Fit Notes

The Freeman brand employs a couple different sizing schemes.  Here are a  few notes about them and a few tips for finding the best size for you.  

 Going back to our very first product - The Freeman Raincoat, we set out to build sizes that worked better than the lettered sizing one might often see.  Less subjective, the numbered sizing was built around actual measurements and gave us better ability to tailor fits so that if someone was between sizes, it wouldn't mean having to settle for something that was way too big.    Thus the 34-44 sizing scheme.   If we had to distill it down into simple terms, we'd say:

34 =  Small

36 =  A trim Medium

38 =  A roomier Medium

40 =  Large

42 =  A roomier Large

44 =  Extra large

The Freeman Raincoat was designed with layering in mind so there is a little more roominess in the fit.  For this reason, its good to consider how you might be wearing it and with what companion pieces.    For example, If you find yourself considering a 38 or a 40, choose 38 for a more fitted look and 40 for a bit extra room for layering a sweater or similar item.

In regards to shirting, we use the same sizing as you will find in the jackets, but being that a button down shirt tends to be more fitted, some might find that they size slightly up for shirts.  For example, if you wear a 36 Freeman Raincoat, you might find that the 38 shirt provides the cleanest fit.

For certain items like our Puget Crew Sweatshirt, we decided a more familiar sizing scheme made sense as the piece is not quite as "fitted" and the fabric has some stretch.  We run these in XS - XXL, and would call these "true to size"

As always, every item has a detailed measurement chart within the product page.  A good practice is to compare the measurements of the item in question to the measurements of an item you currently own that fits well.   Should you have more questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to info@freemanseattle
