Please note: We hold, as the manufacturer suggests, their specification of the measurements. Attention! All measurements are subject to change and no rights can be derived from it.
Choose your Size
Once you have measured yourself, compare the results with the measurements in the appropriate size chart.
Different type of clothing even different type of T-shirts have different scale, even the same brands, so it’s best to check the measurements on the page with the type of clothing you like. When selecting your size, fit to the widest part of your body and choose the size closest to the widest measurement. Choosing the right size depants on your preference how you like to wear your clothes, tide or lose. In cases where your body measurements are between two sizes, go with the similar size for a tighter fit and the larger size for the looser fit.
When taking your measurements, be sure to use a cloth measuring tape, not a metal measuring tape. This will ensure that you’re measuring your body accurately.
If you don’t have a measuring tape, use a piece of string and measure it using a ruler. When measuring yourself, keep the tape firm, but not tight.
Measure over undergarments or skin-tight clothes to ensure the most accurate measurements.
To know the right size for the clothing there are two importent measurements to take, the width (1-4) and the length (2-3).
For shirts, sweaters, longsleeves and or jackets you measure the width (1) from under the arms from armpit to armpit.
For pants and shorts, measure the width of the waist (1) or of the hips (4).
With most pants you measure the waist (1), but with some pants including stretch pants the hip width is measured (4).
The length for pants is measured from the inside of the leg and for shorts (if the manufacturer gives these specifications) it is from the hip down. The manufacturer does not specify a length for some pants.
Among other things, this is often not done with stretch pants, because the length will be different for each wearer due to the stretch (always fits).
The length for t-shirts, polo's, sweaters, longsleeves and jackets is from the outside coller (where the shoulder begins) down.
All products are always measured from a relaxed state.
