Hello Troopers,

Does anyone have any experience with ordering What Price Glory's US M42 Paratrooper Jacket and Trousers. Trying to determine correct sizing to order.

My everyday normal jacket size is between 44R and 46R and pant size is 40 x 34

Cheers,
Fader

When I got mine I ordered larger...I didn't have to. I wear a 44 but ordered a 46...I use that uniform for winter games as I can layer clothing now

I ordered my same size jacket which is 40 and my trousers were 32 just in case.

The thing about the M42 trousers there is that the leg ties for the pockets are OD 7 Which is what the 82nd used. The 101st used the OD 3 Canvas leg ties. Other than that, not bad repro's.
