How We Measure Our Jeans

Waist

With your existing pair, pull the waistband so they lay flat in order to measure from centre of back (back belt loop) to front closure (top button) and measure across. Multiply by two.
NB: The Japanese measure the waist by laying the jeans flat “in profile” (start by the fly and finish by the back rise).

Thigh

At the crotch, lay the jeans flat and make sure that any back rise fabric is to the left of the centre seam and measure the total width perpendicular to the leg.

Knee

Similar to the thigh measurement; however, this time measure 14 inches (35 cm) from the crotch. Note: if you are particularly tall or short then take this into account when measuring down from the crotch.

Leg Opening / Hem Line

Measure seam to seam directly across the leg opening. Multiply by two.

Rise

The waist is seldom a straight band, they are higher in the back than in the front. It is created this way so the jeans sit on the body more comfortably. You will sometimes see the “front rise” and the “back rise” mentioned.

• The front rise is the more common measurement given, as it is more likely to determine the comfort of the jeans. It is measured from the crotch to the waistband just above the button.

• The back rise is measured from the crotch all the way to the top of the waistband at the back.

• The front rise will always be smaller than the back rise.

Inseam / Inside Leg

Measure from the crotch, down the inner seam of the jean leg to the hem.

How We Measure Our Shirts

Chest

The shirt is laid out flat on and even surface and the chest is measured from pit to pit. The measurement is then doubled.

Vertical Length

The shirt is laid out flat on and even surface and measured from the top of the shoulder (where the collar meets the body of the shirt) to the bottom of the shirt. The measuring tape is kept parallel to the vertical outer seam.

Shoulder Width

The shirt is laid out flat on and even surface and measured from one shoulder seam (where the arm joins the main body of the shirt) to the opposite shoulder seam, straight across the chest.

Arm Length

The shirt is laid out flat on and even surface and measured from the shoulder seam (where the arm joins the main body of the shirt) to the end of the cuff.
