    Can someone explain to me about Russian uniform sizes?

    Post by nuck on Sat Oct 01, 2011 2:02 pm

    I have seen lots of conversion tables but they don't mention the second number in the uni size. 56 Rusky = 46 US but what is the second number I see in the sizes?
    56-2, 56-5 etc. It seems like a broad range for tall-short etc and this is on uniform shirts. Anyone?

    Hi nuck,

    The second number corresponds with the wearer's height. You are right that it's a large variety of sizes!

    Commonly seen sizes range from 2 through 6; but may run as high as 8 (200cm) for those really tall guys. However, I have personally only seen between sizes 2 through 6.

    2: up to 164cm
    3: up to 170cm
    4: up to 176cm
    5: up to 182cm
    6: up to 188cm

    So, a size 48-3 jacket would fit someone who is ~170cm tall with a 38" chest.

    Trouser sizes correspond with height/chest measurements based on what's seen as a waist size proportional to the height/chest measurement. This can lead to some amusing size combinations. A friend of mine once had a uniform in size 56-2; that'd be one short and squatty, erm, "portly" soldier! Laughing

    So, 48-3 trousers will have a waist and length relevant to someone who's 170cm tall with a 38" chest, usually about 30 or 32 inches.

    However, the stamps aren't absolute. Some sizes fit differently than others and can vary between manufacturers... a uniform in size 50-3 from factory 1 may fit like the 48-3 from factory 2. I use those examples because I have two uniforms in those sizes that illustrate this.

    Hope this was of some help to you!

    With a 176cm heigth a growth of 6 is far too long for you.

    no, that's what the site owner suggested. I'm 5 foot eleven inches, one inch shy of 6 foot. By this chart, it shows I'd be 50/6.

    Size Conversion Charts for common Soviet Uniform Items

    Clothing Sizes

    Soviet (and even modern Russian) uniforms have two sizes, one for width and one for height.
    They are most often given as a pair of numbers, for example 54-4 or 54-176.

    Width

    The width sizes is given in a number that equals the width of your chest, that means half of its circumference.

    Measure the circumference of your waist and chest and compare to the table below.
    If the two measurements give you different sizes according to the table, choose the larger size.


    Soviet Size
    48 50 52 54 56 58 60 62

    48/4 would suffice for you. The sizing is usually generous enough, you won't look like you're squeezed into it.
