• Recommended chest circumference — armpit bare chest girth according to clothing size.
• Shoulders width — is the key size: the width of the shoulders from sleeve to sleeve along the shoulder seam and behind the neck.
• Chest and waist — measured by the jacket lying on the floor; On this product, the waist is made wide to fit most people; it can be narrowed with a tucks on the back. The waist corresponds to the width of the jacket.
• Sleeve length — sleeve length (at the longest part); if the length of the sleeve is not enough, take the next size, there the shoulders will be wider, and the sleeve will fall more strongly.
• Back height — the length of the jacket from neck to bottom, excluding the collar.
The jacket should first sit down across the width of the shoulders and along the length of the sleeve. The waist is usually customized by a tailor on the figure due to tucks at the back of the waist.

First "Drillich" uniform was white and intended for work and exercises in barracks to preserve the "main" cloth form. Since February 1940 they started to produce HBT fabric in reed-green color for camouflage purpose.
The "Drillich" uniform was worn during marches and occasionally in combat. "Light" uniform showed itself practical and convenient, and at the beginning of 1942 the army decided to develop "summer" suits on the model 1942 suit base (pocket flaps were pointed). This form was worn with all insignia, as well as cloth one. Later model 1943 HBT suits appeared (simple rectangular pocket flaps).
Such suits along with caps encountered less often than the main (cloth) uniform. And cotton models 1944 never appeared, because the economy of the Reich was not up to "spare" suits by that time...
