As a vintage store, we come across a variety of sizes, materials, and shapes. This is because items come from a variety of countries and time periods. As a result, we have developed a size guide in order to give our customers full confidence in their purchases. The measurements generate the "Recommended Size" which provides an up to date size based on EU/US modern day sizing - we also provide the Tag Size.
How we measure our items:
The first measurement is the chest size. This is from the pit to pit, as shown below.
A measurement of the length is then provided. This is done by measuring from the top of the neck to the bottom as shown below. For clothing that has a collar we measure from the point at which the collar meets the rest of the item.
We recommend that you measure an item you already own in order to get your desired size.
If you still have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
