Moods of Norway size chart to help you get the perfect fit

Moods of Norway is designed to have a Scandinavian trim fit, but the extra slim garments have "slim" in their style name, and the ones that offer a bit extra room, have "classic" in the name.  All garments have gone trough multiple phases of testing and measuring, before they end up in the collection and offered to you. We truly hope that you will enjoy your garment, and these few guidelines can help you pick the right size. 


We are using a European size chart for both our suit jackets, blazers, suit pants and waist coats ranging from size 46-48-50-52-54-56-58-60.
