MEN SIZE & MEASUREMENT GUIDE

In my online store all available clothes are authentic vintage garments chosen one by one, which means there is usually only one item available and measurements vary from one piece to the other depending on the era, country of origin, manufacturer, etc.

TO MAKE SHOPPING EASIER FOR YOU, EACH GARMENT IS CAREFULLY HAND-MEASURED THEN CLASSIFIED BY SIZE. Sizes have been updated according to the correspondence chart below.

This size chart is given for information only. Sizing refers to body measurements, not garment dimensions, and sizes may vary slightly depending on the style. Always go for your largest measurement to choose the proper size. For example, if your hips are size S, but your waist is M, choose a size M garment.

Remember that the garment's measurements should always be a little larger than your body measurements to allow proper fit and movement. Also keep in mind if materials are stretch or not.

PLEASE PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO THE MEASUREMENTS PROVIDED, AND COMPARE THEM TO GARMENTS YOU ALREADY OWN THAT YOU LIKE THE FIT OF, OR TO YOUR BODY MEASUREMENTS.

HOW TO MEASURE YOURSELF

You will need a tape measure. Position it as close to the body as possible, without tightening it. Make sure you wear light, tight clothing, such as underwear. Don't hold your breath or tuck your stomach in when you measure yourself. You want to make sure your measurements are accurate to account for movement. If necessary, ask another person to help you.

A - Neck circumference
Measure the neck circumference just above the Adam's apple.

B - Shoulder to shoulder
On the upper back, measure the distance between the points of your shoulders (the end of the shoulder blades, where the shoulder begins its downward curvature. )

C - Arm length
From the point of the shoulder, pull the tape to the knuckle of the thumb

D - Chest circumference
Measure the torso circumference at the strongest point, positioning the tape all around the body, horizontally and not too thight.

E - Waist circumference
Go around your waist with the ribbon. Your natural waistline is above your belly button and below your rib cage, where a crease forms when you bend over. If you usually tie your clothes below your waist, take this measurement as well.

F - Hips
Standing & feet together, measure horizontally at the strongest point.

G - Thigh circumference
Wrap the ribbon around the thickest part of your thigh.

H - Inseam
Without shoes, measure from the crotch to the soles of the feet.
