We tried the XL jacket on Dewey. which is the size he normally wears, but the jacket was pretty roomy on him. Many current Speed and Strength styles have been running about a half size large, but this one seems to be running a bit bigger than that. If you have a look at Speed and Strengths size chart, you’ll see that the chest sizes for any given “alpha” size is bigger than what you might expect in sizes Large and up. If you choose a size using the chart based upon your chest size, then you’ll be OK. If you go by what alpha size you wear in men’s clothing, I’d advise you to buy the same size you normally do if you are Small or Medium, but if you are Large or above, you’ll likely need one size smaller than you normally wear. Sorry for the convoluted advice, but the fit on this one is a bit whacky.

Our Two Cents
The Top Dead center textile jacket (shown here) and the Top Dead Center Leather jacket offer unique styling. Be sure and take the View Larger Images link above and have a look at the back shot. Unusual for sure. Otherwise, this is a standard textile style with the “usual” features. Climate control only includes some zippered venting, so on its own, this style will keep you comfortable in mild or warm/hot weather. But for colder weather use, you’ll want to layer using your own thermal underwear. :: Paul, 12-19-13
