Looking at the chart they have on Epic it seems that the regular 38" chest gymnastiorka is sized for those who are 5'9" and I'm about 5'11"/6'0". Going by the chart the nearest size that'll fit me length wise is a 41" long, which I think would look a bit too big on me. Can anybody shed some light?
I don't think a tunic being a few inches short would be an issue, they're supposed to come down to thigh level like a peasant smock and no one is going to notice it sitting a bit higher, the breeches come right up to the waist anyway so there's a fair bit of leeway. A tunic being far too baggy would be more noticeable and more frustrating to you wearing it. In reality, with the M43 becoming the norm among millions of soviet soldiers from January of that year I expect more than a handful were issued with tunics that were too short, too baggy or too long.
