Austrian trousers size chart

 


People's sizes vary in two different way: height and width. Austrians have a distinct size system for both jackets and trousers. Strangely, trousers width is indicated by width of the chest. No worries! Our thoroughbred investigators have dug up the corresponding sizes.

Width

Easy sizeUser waistAustrian system (chest)
Small 72-80 cm 88-92
Medium 80-88 cm 96-100
Large 88-98 cm 104-108
X-Large 98-108 cm 112-116
2X-Large 108-116 cm 120-124

User waist maximum is usually the same as the actual measured waist of the trousers. With military trousers the waist is measured slightly below the navel. You can also take existing trousers that fit, measure the waist flat and multiply by two.

If you went through the table with precision, you might have noticed that the difference between chest circumference and waist gets smaller as the sizes grow. This difference is 12 cm for sizes Small and Medium, 10 cm for Large and 8 cm for X-Large and 2X-Large. When the body type is normal and chest circumference becomes larger, the waist actually grows a bit faster.
