How We Measure
Every garment that comes through our shops is measured for quality control. We work with a wide range of tailors and artisans, so we inevitably have a varying assortment of fits and styles. We understand that this can lead to a potentially confusing sizing experience. We spend a great deal of time working to ensure that our sizing is consistent across our tailoring models, knitwear and more.
While measurements and numbers can be very one-dimensional, our garments are built to be three-dimensional. A great deal of the fit is actually attributed to ironing and the potential for future alterations. Trying something on will always be better than comparing numbers on a chart. However, sizing charts are often the best chance at a good fit when buying clothes remotely. If you do end up with the wrong size, we'll happily exchange it.
Lay out the jacket on a flat surface. Button up the appropriate button and place the measuring tape beneath the armpits, around the widest part of the chest.
Measure across the narrowest part of the jacket, from one edge to the other. Make sure to keep the tape horizontal.
Lay the jacket upside-down. Place the end of the measuring tape at the top of one shoulder seam. Bring the tape straight across the top of the jacket until it meets the top of the second shoulder seam.
Turn up the collar. Place the end of the tape under the collar, measure from the neck seam to the bottom of the jacket.
Measure the length from the shoulder point, the top of the shoulder, to the end of the sleeve.
Before we start with the measuring, button up the trousers, lay them flat and smoothen out any wrinkles.
Place the measuring tape across the waistband and measure the narrowest part.
Measure across the hip area, the widest part of the trousers.
Starting from the top of the waistband, ending at the crotch seam.
Lay out and fold the trousers in half. Fold the top leg up over the waistband, making the bottom of the crotch visible. Flatten the bottom trouser leg across the thigh. Measure straight across the width of the leg, below the lowest part of the crotch, perpendicular to the inseam.
Measure across the bottom of the trouser hem, from one edge of the leg opening to the other.
Lay the trousers flat, so that the legs are folded along the front and back creases. Measure from the top of the waistband down to the bottom of the leg opening, following along the side seam of the leg.
Fold up the one trouser leg. Measure from the crotch, at the spot where the front and back seams meet, down the inside of the leg to the leg opening.
