Jackets must not fit snugly. You will need some room within the coat should a honey bee find yourself inside with you!
Gloves dimensions are decided by calculating throughout the knuckles, excluding the flash (I.E. the widest point of hand). You prefer your gloves to suit snugly given that leather will stretch slightly in the long run.

Do worker bees kill drone bees for laziness? - Quora
Nah, they don't sting them to death just kick them out and don't let them back in. In early winter when bees go into winter mode they want to conserve as much energy and food as they can to make it through the winter. As the queen doesn't lay in the winter the drones have no usefulness so they kick them out into the cold. The hive is the organism and at that point those drones are only a drag.
The drones are bigger and make a much louder buzzing noise. When the ladies start kicking them out you can catch them and have a pet bee as they can't sting you.
