Size Guide & Condition

Sizing for vintage clothing is different to the standardized sizing of today. The fit of garments will vary depending on the cut, style and fabric used. Therefore, we provide a size estimate for each item, not the size listed on the label of a product. Our goal is to give you the best idea of how a garment will actually fit you. To help you with your shopping experience and give you the upmost confidence in your purchases we have provided measurements for most of our items. 

 

Here is a guide to how we measure all our items:

First, we take a pit to pit measurement by laying the garment flat, face up and measuring the cloth from its widest point from under the armpit to the other armpit.

Then we take the length measurement by laying the item flat on the ground with the back of the shirt facing up. The measurement is taken from the seam where the collar band attaches to the yoke (the fabric that sits across the shoulders) straight down to the hem of the item at its longest point.

The listing should look like this:

Size: M

Measurements:

Pit to pit - 48cm
Length on back - 53cm

To ensure your purchase fits perfectly we recommend measuring a piece of clothing that fits well and using this as a guide.
