Sizing Information

How to get a really good fit:

Measure yourself with a tape measure using the instructions below. (Or have a friend do it. Serve sangria, as a bribe.) Jot down your measurements and compare them with the body measurement sizing charts found below and on each product page.

HAT: Measure circumference of your head where hat would naturally rest (normally above the brow).

WAIST: Measure around your natural waist or, if you prefer, a little lower, where you may actually wear your pants.

NECK: Measure neck. (Add a little for Adam's apple.)

SEAT/HIP: Standing, with feet together, measure around the fullest part of the hips. Don't cheat.

CHEST/BUST: Measure around fullest part, but with tape under your arms. You'll need a friend to do this for you. (More sangria.)

INSEAM: Use a well-fitting similarly styled pair of pants. Lay them flat, with seam on seam. Measure from crotch to bottom of hem.

ARM/SLEEVE LENGTH: Arm must be bent to do this correctly. Then, measure from center of back of neck, over the shoulder, down the arm, past the elbow (bent) all the way to wrist. (Friend needed for this too.)

"FOR MEN AND WOMEN": What does that mean? Men's sizes, in fact. On women, these items will be attractively oversized; sleeve length will be long.

Returns and Exchanges

Should there be any problems with your order or damage to your package please call us toll-free at 888-647-2555, or you can email us via the Contact Us page.

To Return Merchandise

Please complete the form on the back of the packing slip and send it along with your return. Please fill in the return reason—it helps us to know why you weren’t happy. Carefully pack your return merchandise and secure it with strong tape.

You may use our convenient, prepaid Merchandise Return Label and $8.95 will be deducted from your refund when we process it (except for returns of damaged/incorrect items). Or you can use the carrier of your choice to ship your return to us at your own expense. If you do not use our Merchandise Return Label, we encourage you to insure the package (remember to keep the tracking number). It usually takes about two weeks for your return/exchange item(s) to be received and processed by our customer care team.

We cheerfully accept all returns and exchanges of unworn,unwashed, unused, and undamaged merchandise in the original condition that was purchased at full or sale prices in our catalogs or on our website (excluding purchases in the Last Chance Dept. of our website) for a refund of the merchandise price you paid (less applicable shipping charges) within 60 days from shipped date.

We do not accept any returns for items that we sell in the Last Chance Dept. of our website (because these are very limited quantities of items). However, we will exchange these items for a different size of that item if it is available, as provided below.

To Exchange Merchandise

We cheerfully accept all returns and exchanges of unworn, unwashed, unused, and undamaged merchandise in the original condition that was purchased at full or sale prices in our catalogs or on our website (excluding purchases in the Last Chance Dept. of our website) for a refund of the merchandise price you paid (less applicable shipping charges) within 60 days from shipped date.

Please follow the same policies and packaging processes explained above for a return. Please make sure you fill out the back of your packing list to explain the type of exchange you would like to make. We offer two options for exchanges:

To Exchange Same Item for Different Size or Color (Or to Exchange Damaged/Incorrect Item)

Domestic Orders: Shipping is on us. If you use our convenient, prepaid Merchandise Return Label, you will not be charged the shipping cost to return these items to us. We will also cover the regular shipping cost to get that exchanged item back to you.

International Orders: Shipping is on you unless we shipped you the wrong item. When exchanging an item or items, you will not be able to use the Merchandise Return Label if you are outside the U.S. There will also be international shipping charges on the item we send to you after an exchange.

To Exchange Item for Different Item (Except as Provided Above)

Shipping is on you. If you use our convenient, prepaid Merchandise Return Label to return the item to us, $8.95 will be charged to you (or deducted from any applicable refund) when we process your exchange order. In addition, you will also be charged the applicable shipping cost again when we ship you that different item. Any additional payment that may be required will be charged to the credit card used for the initial purchase, unless another payment method is provided. Any credit that may be required will be provided in the same manner that the original payment was made.

J. Peterman’s Rewards Program

It’s our way of saying, Thank you for Shopping with Us.

J. Peterman will give customers 3% back “in reward points” on every single purchase made with us here at J. Peterman. Plus, as a Rewards member, you will receive “insider access” to special sales.

Here is how it all works:

Customers will receive 3% in reward points for each purchase. A customer cannot earn Reward points from sales tax, shipping charges, discounts, free items, past purchases or gift cards. And if a customer happens to return an item, the Reward points received from that purchase will be deducted from their Rewards account.

Joining the program is free and automatic. Any registered customer who makes a purchase with us is automatically in the program.

Rewards are earned by customers in a calendar quarter (three month periods). Then, the customer has one month to redeem those points earned from that previous calendar quarter. For example, if a customer purchased $500 in merchandise from us during the period January to March, the customer will receive a $15 dollar voucher as Reward points for those purchases. The customer will then have the following month to spend those points, from April 15th to May 15th. The customer’s unique voucher code will be email to them and posted in their My Account. These voucher codes can be used like any J. Peterman coupon. And yes, a customer earns Rewards even while they redeem Rewards in a purchase.

Don’t worry, we will send you helpful email reminders to you don’t forget to use your voucher. About 15 days after a calendar quarter ends, we will send a reminder email to all the customers who have “reward dollars” to spend (April 15th) and they will have 1 month to spend the “reward dollars.” If not redeemed during that month, these points will expire automatically.

Using your Reward points is easy. Enter your Rewards voucher code in the Promotional Code box that appears on the Order Review page in checkout and click the Add button. Or if you decide to call us, just provide this code to our customer service specialist.
