Size Guide

Getting Sizes right can be difficult. The reality is that every brand has a different way of making garments and so there is no standardised fits. A Medium in one brand could be like a Large in a different brand.

To help you with fittings we have developed this guide to give you a better idea of what to expect. If you are not sure of your size, check some of the garments you own that fit you well. This will give you an idea of what fit you need.
