What are the measurements for the down puffer jacket in both size S and M, or how does it fit? Was thinking of getting one but unsure on what size to go for

So you sized up one then, so its a bit fitting if taking your regular size? for example my regular size would be a S or 46 in Arket

A H&M 52 is large in UK sizing so he took normal size

I presume arket use same sizing as h&m

Is it? thought 50 was a large? 46 = small, 48 = medium and so on? or is 46 extra small?

I think it’s weird sizing as I wear a L in their normal stuff but a 52 in the numbered sizing. Which they class as an XL

Likewise, I'm a medium and a 50 (normally).

Cleared it up, think i'll go for the 48 then, 46 will probably be a bit too snug especially if i have layers underneath

I’m a medium and take a 48 in Arket for everything from T-shirts, shirts to jackets etc. 50 for trousers though because they always fit small (they say 48 = 33 waist on their labels and it just doesn’t)

It’s no surprise swede has been banned from multiple online stores for too many returns. He’s a pisstaker.
Must’ve returned about 2ks worth this month
