Measuring Guide

Our measuring guide below is how we measure our clothing for bottoms and tops. The best way to ensure the correct size is to measure one of your current pairs of bottoms/tops that fit you well, and compare to the sizing charts on each product page. If you have additional sizing questions, feel free to e-mail us or reach out to us on Instagram and we will help you out. Click on "Bottoms" or "Tops" to view our measuring guide for each article of clothing.

Bottoms: Denim/Trousers/Pants

We provide most of the traditional measurements you typically see, but we include two thigh measurements-one measurement from the crotch seam and a second measurement from two inches down. We tend to find the majority of sizing issues-when the waist is sized correctly-arises from the thigh area being too tight. Using two measurements, we think you will have a better idea of how the pants will fit compared to your current best fitting pair.

Note: Unless you want a very skinny fit, we recommend the thigh measurement of the pants be at least 0.1” larger than the circumference of your actual thigh circumference.

Waist

To measure the waist, pull the denim tight at the waist band to align the front and rear as much as possible (the front waistband usually sags below the rear). Place the measuring tape at one edge and measure to the opposite edge. Multiply this number by two.

Front Rise

To measure the front rise, place the measuring tape at the crotch seam and measure straight up towards the middle of the front waistband.

Back Rise

To measure the back rise, place the measuring tape at the crotch seam and measure straight up to the center of the back waistband. You may need to hold the back waistband and pull the crotch seam down and out to more easily measure from the crotch seam.

Thigh

To measure the thigh (from the crotch), place the measuring tape at the crotch seam and measure directly across the leg such that the tape is perpendicular to the outseam.

Tops: Shirts/Tees/Jackets

Sizing for tops can vary widely between various brands and even within the same brand for different styles. We tend to find that the best fitting shirts are ones where the shoulder measurement is equal or slightly larger than your actual shoulder measurement. The second most important is usually the chest measurement. Based on these two measurements compared to your actual body measurement, as well as comparisons to your best fitting shirt, you should be able to identify your correct size.

Chest

To measure the chest, pull the shirt tight across the chest and measure from pit to pit. It may be helpful to raise the arms out of the way.

Boots

We currently carry Viberg boots as our only footwear brand. As our offerings expand, we will update this section with more information on different lasts and styles. For Vibergs, generally they run one size larger than your normal sneaker sizes and your Brannock size. As such, most people size down one size, +/- 0.5 depending on your feet width, as well as the specific last of the boot.

1035 Last: The 1035 Last is a tweener between their 2030 and 2040 lasts. It takes the sleekness of the 2030 and combines it with the additional room in the toe box of the 2040. The result is what we consider the perfect combination of looks and fit for many folks, especially those who just don't know that their toes appreciate the extra width. If you have D width feet or smaller, we recommend sizing down one from your Brannock; if you have E width feet or larger, we recommend sizing down half a size from your Brannock.
