jacket for the lady

Ok so i'd like to pick up a jacket for this girl i'm dating, i think A-stars might have switched form even to odd numbers.

their site only lists 1,3,5,7 etc but i found some jackets on ebay as 2,4,6

their smallest size (1) is probably a bit too small for her, she's 5'3 about 110lbs. and 3 is probably the right one, so i'm trying to figure out if a 2 is going to be correct.

http://www.alpinestars.com/sizechartwtnumber.htm is the current size chart on their site.

i'm worried if the old 2 is the new 1 and the old 4 is the new 3... any input would be great.

its a womens T Dyno leather jacket.

Maybe one is listing US sizes and one is listing UK sizes?

Don't think I can help...mine is an even number but I bought it used so I have no clue how old it is.

Like vabarber2 said...you may want to get something that will fit other riders as well.

Nope, I'd say they just listed them wrong.

2, 4, 6, 8, etc.. (i.e. event numbers) are US women's sizes. The UK uses the same series of numbers, though they might be sized slightly smaller.

1, 3, 5, 7, etc... (odd numbers) are US "Junior's" sizes (typically smaller through the chest and hip.. cut narrower for smaller/younger builds). I don't believe there's any gear manufacturer that actually sizes things using this numbering system (not in jackets anyway - I do believe both Fox and Alpinestars casual wear is sized this way).

That said, like ItGirl said, Alpinestars does run petite.

ok so the new 3 is the old 2 and the new 5 is the old 4. the 2 is a 38 and the 4 is a 40... decisions decisions, i wish she was a tad taller so i'd get the 4 and more girls would likely fit in it haha.
