HELP! Question about show jackets

Most show coat brands give you the option of buying your size in either a short, regular, or long. When they refer the this, do they mean in a shorter/longer sleeve? Or shorter/long around the bottom? Also, if you were to specify short, how much shorter would it be?

I need to buy a new show jacket (RJ Classic is what I'm getting) and I'm not sure exactly what short/long actually means (silly me). I just want clarification

I would think it would be both the sleeves and the torso. If you're unsure, just go try on some jackets and see what size fits you best. Are you ordering online? If so, I'm sure you want to be sure of your size first.

Yeah, i've been to a couple tack stores and they don't have rj classics in size 0. So I asked them to ship one in, but they say it will take 2 weeks to 6 months (if they have to make it) to get it in the store, and I need a new jacket for a show on the 28th, so i'm not sure that I can wait that long.

I know i'm a 0, I just don't know what would be best, short or regular. I checked the rj classic website, but they don't give the length of the jacket. They just recommend short/regular/long for the various heights of people. But I have a short upperbody and long legs, so i'm not sure that that is going to help me much.

But thanks for your help. I appreciate it

Most websites have a "Contact Us" or "Customer Service" link. You could ask them and I bet they'd have an answer for you by the next day. Good luck!

Thanks, xanadu. That's a good idea I didn't even think of :)

I'll try it.
