Size Guide

We stock a wide variety of brands and clothing styles from many different era's, this means that often sizes can vary greatly, even when they are labelled the same size. We stock globally sourced products and often what could be considered a medium in one brand or country may in fact be a large in a different one or visa versa. Therefore we always recommend that you do the following -

  • Check the measurements provided  in the product description against a piece of clothing that fits well (see below to see how we take our measurements)
  • Check the product manufacturers size guide (if available)
  • Try on a different product that is manufactured by the same brand to test the fit if you already have one

The pit to pit measurement is taken from one armpit to the other armpit when the garment is laid flat with the front facing upwards. All buttons & zips are fastened when taking this measurement.

The shoulder to waist measurement is taken from the highest point of the shoulder (where the shoulder joins the collar - not the top of the collar) to the point on the waist hem that is directly beneath where the shoulder measurement was taken. This measurement is taken on the front when the garment is laid flat with the front facing upwards. All buttons & zips are fastened when taking this measurement.

The shoulder to cuff measurement is taken from the point where the shoulder is stitched to the top of the sleeve (or where the sleeve appears to start), to the end of the sleeve cuff. This measurement is taken on the front when the garment is laid flat with the front facing upwards. All buttons & zips are fastened when taking this measurement.

Please note that the measurements of each product are approximate and taken when the product is laying flat so there may be a +/- 1 inch difference.
