SIZE AND FIT
People come in different shapes and sizes, so choosing the right size is rarely an exact science. But it’s worth spending a few minutes to get a really good fit. Once you know your body measurements you’ll be able to order our clothes, confident that they’ll fit exactly as they should.
Measure yourself with a tape measure, then consult the size charts. Notes on the shape and cut of our garments will help you decide if you want to opt for a loose or close fit.
Important to note there’s a small natural variance of about 1cm in the width and length of the garment. This is due to tiny variations in the fabric and because we make them by hand. Garments also shrink a little when you wash them, and then stretch back to their previous size as you wear them. (But do follow the washing instructions to avoid excessive shrinking.)
KNOWING YOUR OWN SIZE
To be accurate it’s best to measure yourself in your underwear and barefoot. If someone can do it for you, all the better. We suggest taking each measurement two or three times to allow for errors. Try not to pull the tape too tightly or leave it loose.
Measure the broadest part of your chest. With arms at your sides (as far as possible), measure under your armpits and around your chest and shoulder blades.
Measure around your body where your waistband or belt normally sits.
With elbow bent, measure from the top of the arm at the shoulder point to the wrist.
Measure from the top of your inside leg at the crotch to the ankle bone.
