Austrian trousers size chart
People's sizes vary in two different way: height and width. Austrians have a distinct size system for both jackets and trousers. Strangely, trousers width is indicated by width of the chest. No worries! Our thoroughbred investigators have dug up the corresponding sizes.

User waist maximum is usually the same as the actual measured waist of the trousers. With military trousers the waist is measured slightly below the navel. You can also take existing trousers that fit, measure the waist flat and multiply by two.
If you went through the table with precision, you might have noticed that the difference between chest circumference and waist gets smaller as the sizes grow. This difference is 12 cm for sizes Small and Medium, 10 cm for Large and 8 cm for X-Large and 2X-Large. When the body type is normal and chest circumference becomes larger, the waist actually grows a bit faster.
