Does anybody know what size Michael Biehn wore in the trench coat?
Go to the first page of this thread, and you'll see a clear shot of the size label of the first coat he takes from the rack. I think its a size 34 regular. But go amd double check

Also this is to anyone on here. Does anyone know if the black coat Kyle gets after his arrest/escape from the Police Station shootout is a Vietnam trench coat? It looks oddly small on him, and looks to be more of a civilian type of trench coat. I could be wrong, but I will search eBay and compare the images that Nick posted on the first page

The guys on Filmjackets had some info about the black coat a while back - about two thirds down this thread:

It more or less is the same information as it was presented on here. Funny enough, I searched up eBay and black army coats exist. However the cuff strap is different. It has a pointed end rather than the square end like his first green Vietnam coat. Also, there might not be a button to hold down that storm flap on the left side. As well as it being a small size on Kyle. I did find a 38S, however I don't know how to acquire a small fitting army trench coat as those tend to run larger than normal

OK I just visited an army surplus store. They had a bunch of trench coats. And from what the shop owner said they make them in a Short, Regular, or Long version. Also a 34-38 is a small, whereas the 38-40 is a small/medium.

I did find an xs on eBay. It's black, and a size 38XS. If anyone here has any military knowledge on trench coat sizes you can chime in. I would think the XS would be a tiny tiny fit, but I'm not so sure

I think Michael was/is about 5'11-6'0, pretty muscular... yet lean in some places in the film. Those jackets run big though. I'm a bigger dude, about the same height as Michael Biehn and I could fit into the jacket that Data wore from the Goonies, so could my 6'3 brother. It's an anomaly. My opinion only, when it doubt... maybe size down a touch.

Thanks for the information my good fellow.

Awesome! He is a super nice + chatty guy, too – I was lucky enough to speak with him at a con a year or so ago & got an autograph.

It pleases me to see him enthusiastic about the shoes!! I always wanted to meet him but I never thought he would be that interested, really makes me smile. Congratulations!

In other news...

Does anybody have an opinion on what size coat Reese wears?

I would like to begin putting together a costume of my own. I am the same height as Michael and I'm working on getting in shape and being able to cosplay is a great incentive.

As far as I can tell (which isn't extremely far) my best guess is that he is wearing a 38L. I've had some experience with military raincoats and I managed to have my brother model a 36L, he is 6'4 and slim. Michael is 6'0 (although people do tend to "round up", even world class athletes) and he was something in between slim, much like a marathon runner, with some muscle put on... without being body builder style toned. I think a 38L is in the ballpark.

I tried my best to figure it out simply based on reading the tag in screenshots but it isn't quite legible.
