Buying clothes online can be scary, so we’ve produced this size guide to help. Get a ruler or a tape measure, grab your favourite jeans (we advise against using overly thin/stretchy denim as this can skew the results), or take your body measurements and compare with the guide before taking the plunge.
There are five measurements you’ll need to compare to ours: the waist, the rise, the thigh, the knee, and the ankle.
HOW TO MEASURE
Waist: JEANS METHOD--Lay your jeans flat with the front and back waist on top of each other. Measure straight across the waistband, then double this measurement.
BODY METHOD--Measure your waist at its narrowest (usually around belly button height). Tape measure should be flat against your skin, level around your waist and held snug, but do not pull tight or cinch.
Hip: JEANS METHOD--Measure your jeans at their widest, usually 2-3" above the crotch seam.
BODY METHOD--Measure your hips at their widest. Tape measure held flat, level and snug (see above).
Rise: Measure from where all the crotch seams meet to the top of the waistband.
Thigh: Measure 2" below the crotch seam straight across the jeans from inside edge to outside edge. Double this measurement.
Knee: 14" below the crotch seam, place your ruler straight across the width of the jeans. Double this measurement.
Calf: 20" below the crotch seam, place your ruler straight across the width of the jeans. Double this measurement.
Ankle: Measure straight across your bottom hem. Double this measurement.
Check your measurements against our charts to find the size that will fit you best. If you have any questions, or you need advice, we’re happy to help: email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We can hem your jeans to whatever inseam you like—for free—before we send them to you. There are no returns on hemmed or altered jeans.
