Our intention with this size guide is to make buying vintage clothing online a piece of cake. In order to make it easy, we must understand how each product is measured. To rely only on a size tag is impossible as each item has been worn, washed, altered, repaired in unique ways by the previous owner(s).
In every product description we offer several measurements of the item, sometimes even how it fits (for e.g slim, regular, boxy).
The main measurements we provide for tops are:
- Chest (pit to pit)
- Sleeve length
- Back length
For bottoms, we provide:
If you are uncertain of your size, we recommend that you measure a top or bottom you have at home the same way we do in order to have something to compare with.
Further down we describe exactly how we measure.
