Size & Fit Guide


Measuring from Home

    • Chest Size

      Measure the chest circumference around the widest point of your chest. Breathe out and stand in a relaxed stance.

    • Bust

      Measure horizonally under the arms around the fullest part of the bust.

    • Jacket Length

      Place a tape measure at the nape of the neck, in the centre of where the back seam meets the collar. Measure closely down the back of the body to the chosen length.

    • Trouser Waist

      Measure around your waist where you usually wear your trousers. Make sure that this is a body measure from underneath your garments.

    • Trouser Length

      This is measured from the inseam crotch down the inside of the leg to the floor, or to the required length. It might be best to get someone to help with this to get a more accurate measure.
