Measurement Guide

We hand measure every garment and accessory so that you can ensure the perfect fit. 

Please bear in mind that sizing labels on vintage garments and standardised measurements of clothing have changed over the decades and also vary between countries. 

We have included visual illustrations of how we measure our garments and advise that you measure yourself the same way (in cm). 

If possible, it is also helpful to measure a similar garment you know fits well to compare proportions. 

 

SIZE GUIDE FOR GARMENTS

The following size chart is designed to be a fair representation of clothing sizes. However, we advise that you use them as an approximate guideline and compare your individual measurements to those stated on each item’s product page before purchase.

The size chart also gives a conversion of the following international sizes:

DE (also used in Austria, Netherlands, Switzerland, Sweden, Denmark and Norway)

FR (also used in Belgium, Spain and Portugal)

IT (also used in Japan)

UK (also used in Australia and New Zealand)

US (also used in Canada)

Certain garments are designed to have a more oversized fit, so the measurements may not correspond exactly to the size guidelines. That's why a suggested fit is indicated in the product description, under "SIZE & FIT".
