I'm Going Totally To-The-Point

I'm a Google Code-in Finalist of this year and I'm supposed to get a T-shirt and a Hoodie

My Chest is : 45 Inch

Sleeve Length : 22 Inch

Body Length : 31 Inch

And Here's The Size Chart they provided:

Size Chart Loading...

T-shirt size is fine for me , XL would be perfect but There's No Size Group For Hoodies Which Matches My Requirements!! 😣😣

What Should I Do?

In the email which instructed me about steps to get the prizes , there was a mention to contact GoogleOpenSource[at]shumsky.com for anything related t-shirt/hoodie.

I emailed at it explaining my problem but surprisingly their staff thinks that XL of Hoodie will fit me 😒 I mean, you can look into the chart yourself , XL is nowhere near my requirements!

I tried explaining and suddenly got a unexpected Out Of Office Email 😯

Yesterday Evening (January 7 Evening , Indian Standard Time) , She (I hope she's she) replied :

Hi!

I spoke with the factory today and they confirmed that the garments run true to size so please order the size you would normally wear!

Thanks,

[Her First Name]

I don't really understand what she meant, if there're no size group that matches my requirements , how I'm supposed to order the size I would normally wear??😒

I also emailed at gci-support[at]google.com explaining my problem but nah... No reply!😣

Now , I Don't Understand What Should I Do? Please Give Me Some Suggestions?

What they mean is probably that the hoodies match other default hoodie sizes; So if you normally wear an xl, you should choose an xl. The size chart is indeed very weird. I mean, a 4xl hoodie chest size still smaller than an xs tshirt?

 

I'm not sure what size should I wear , I don't know if there's any difference between Indian and American Standard Sizes..

 

Update: Last night i got a reply from GoogleOpenSource@shumsky.com , they told me to select XL for both T-shirt and Hoodie.

The shirts are going to be custom made by my factory so I will let them know to make an XL for you. If there is an issue with the size you can contact me directly and we will work to get another shirt for you!

Thanks!

 

I hate size charts for this reason.

I'm no help, but congrats on being a finalist!

 

I'm 99% sure that the hoodie size chart is based on the width of the garment laid flat, measured side to side, instead of a circumference.

 
 

Update : I got reply from gci-support[at]google.com and they said , they have contacted Shumsky and trying to figure out the issue , will update me soon
