    Default Sizing - Grand Prix Jacket vs. R J Jacket

    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.

    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.

    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
