    Hey everyone. I'm new here. I just bought a blue plaid Australian Bluey Jacket and I ran into an issue. I was familiar with the sizes they use and the seller told me it would be ideal if you wear M/L. Unfortunately size 6 I guess is more XL, and it's huge on me. It's a shame too, because I really love it and it's in great condition. So this is what I was wondering, does anyone have a similar jacket, maybe a cruiser or another Bluey they might have grown out of, and maybe are willing to trade or work something out with me? Just thought I might ask. Thanks .

    When you say huge is that with a T-shirt or over multiple winter layers?
    The Blue Plaid ones are nice

    Multiple layers. I'm 5'5" 150 lbs, I'm guessing It would probably be perfect if I were between 5'8"-6'2".

    Thank you for the links. I only saw a junior size, and then another ad with extra large as the smallest size. I'd like this size 6 to go to someone that could use it as well, and I prefer not having to go through the debacle of selling it on eBay or Craigslist if possible. I'm not closed on the idea. I'll keep my eyes on these eBay sellers.

    I am pretty sure that "Junior" in Bluey speak is the fabric weight not the cut and sizing. These are predominately worn and made for people who do manual physical work with heavy materials and are big deliberately in the coat styles Much larger than our "normal" sizes but yes XL is usually the smallest adult size in that style.
