There is a wide discrepancy among the older vintage sizing system and today's sizing, as well as differences in international garment sizing conventions.
Getting Size Right
To ensure the most accurate fit, we will note the size on the garments label and provide the actual dimensions of the garment in centimetres, as well as what size we expect it to be in modern sizing terms. This is the guide we use to measure against modern sizes but please please please measure to ensure the best fit.
It's best to measure on an article of clothing you already have that fits. If you measure directly from your body, please be sure to allow a couple of centimetre's, you know so you can actually move in it =)
