So, if you wear a size 10 regular in a Grand Prix could you wear a 0 in an R. J. jacket. Tried a 4 R. J. and it was huge. Anyone have both and can compare sizes for me?

No, you probably want a 2.

My daughter wears a 10 slim in Grand Prix and a O in RJ Classics. She can wear a 8 in Grand Prix, but it is not long enough and slightly tight in the shoulders. Her shadbelly is a 2 in RJ Classics. For some reason a 0 did not fit.

I am a 12R in GP and need a 4R in RJ Classics. So my guess is that a 10R GP is a 2R in RJ Classics.

I wear a 12T in GP and a 2R in RJ.

Boy that's a lot of characters that don't make up real words!

Like txt spk?

OP - there's no "set" conversion, because it's going to depend a bit on how you are built and what is comfortable for you... but a size 6 hunt coat in just about any other brand is the smallest you can get off-the-rack, which would be an equivalent street size 0, so I would try an RJ in a 2 (RJ is sized to street size).

Thanks for the feedback. Sounds like I should try the 2 first. Found a great buy on a 0, looked up the size chart, and it looked like it might work. From all the input it now sounds like it won't. Oh well, back to looking. Thanks Again.

would you go down a size for the soft shell you think?

I recently bought a Grand Prix jacket and felt a little tubby when I had to buy a size 14!!!! I'm by no means overweight either. I'll forgive the jacket though.... it's pretty! lol
