Measuring Procedures

We measure as accurately as possible. The vintage old label sizes are not the same as modern sizing. When measuring for fit,

please follow the size charts below to ensure the measurements will work for you. However, we do recommend that you compare the measurements of the item you are interested in against something similar you already own that fits you perfectly, that way you will ensure a good fit.

We usually take measurements while the item is lying flat and unstretched.
