GET THE CORRECT WAIST

Lay a pair of your best fitting jeans, flat on the floor, and measure across the entire waistband. As a result you will be able to check which size tag corresponds with your measurements, and choice of fit.

Important Notice:
We are using vanity sizing. That results in not true-to-fit measurements.
If you’re a true 32″ that does not always result in buying a size tag 32.

GET THE CORRECT HIP MEASUREMENT

If you place the measurement tape approximately 0.5 inch/1.25 cm over the bottom part of the fly and measure from edge to edge on your favourite pair of jeans. That will result in providing you with your hip measurement.

GETTING THE THIGH CORRECTLY

When you measure 1″/2.5 cm below the 4-way seam all across the thigh.
As a result you will end up with your thigh measurement.
In then end, also make sure you get all the fabric on both front and backside.

MEASURING YOUR FRONT RISE

To acquire the rise measurement simply measure from the top of the waistband down to the 4-way seam. As a result, if you alter the rise of your jeans please make sure to state both the preferred front and back rise measurements.
Also this measurement is the same when you choose a 5 button fly.

MEASURING YOUR BACK RISE

As stated above, just flip the jeans over and do the exact same thing as the front rise. Always measure from the top of the waistband down to the crotch seams. Remember to state both measurements when altering the rise.

MEASURING YOUR CORRECT KNEE WIDTH

Measure approximately 14 inch/35 cm below the crotch seam, across the knee part. As a result, this measurement may vary depending on what inseam you choose and because we have all different body length.

GETTING YOUR HEM OR LEG OPENING CORRECT

Lay your jeans flat and measure right across the bottom hem of your jeans. The result may differ depending on what weight you choose.

HOW YOU GET THE CORRECT INSEAM/LENGTH

Measure from the 4-way seam all the way down to the leg opening.
The customer can choose anything from 5-44″.
All raw denim shrinks after the first wash/soak.
Therefor if you would like to cuff (fold up) your jeans, our suggestion is, adding 1 or 2 inches to account for such shrinkage.
As a result it’s easier to shorten a pair of jeans if they’re still too long.
