Sizing Info

MOST IMPORTANTLY- You have to measure yourself! Vintage and modern sizing are usually not the same!
Most modern clothing is cut loose or baggy, so just because you buy jeans that are 32x30, that doesn't mean you have a 32" waist. MOST guys find they need to buy at least one vintage size "bigger" than what they currently wear.

Do not tell me you "wear a size 44 jacket", or a "size 16 shirt", or "size 34" pants. That means nothing to me and I cannot help you determine if the vintage items will fit unless you get off your duff and grab a tape measure!


Shirts- most important is to measure your chest. Then shoulders, sleeves, and length.
Pants- most important is to measure your waist. Then hips, inseam, and rise.

Below is our size chart. We use the measurements below to mark the size on our items. So you need to compare your measurements to determine what size vintage you should be buying.

You MUST look at ALL the measurements given for an item to ensure a good fit! Click on the item you want to see for the full description, more photos and all the measurements.

CHEST

Measured across the chest from armpit seam to armpit seam and then that length is doubled. I always leave a little "breathing room" so the tape measure is actually placed about 1/2" from the actual seam. (Y'know, so you can move your arms.)
Sometimes we will give you the actual seam to seam measurement and then the recommended size.

SLEEVES

Measured from the side of the collar where it meets the shoulder seam down to the cuff. (I do NOT measure from the back of the collar.) I go from the collar/shoulder seam, over the shoulder and down the arm.

WAIST

Measured from side to side and doubled, wherever the waist is on the item. (An example- an empire waist dress has a much higher waist than usual).

LENGTH

From the back of the collar (where the seam is), down the front, to the hem.

SHOULDERS

From shoulder seam to shoulder seam.

INSEAM

From crotch seam to cuff down the interior of the leg.

RISE

This is the length from waist to crotch seam.

HIPS

From seam to seam and then doubled.

Some Facts you Should Know about Vintage Clothing

A) There was no uniform dress sizing. NEVER go by the vintage size!
B) 1950s & 60s dress waists were much narrower because the designers assumed the use of a girdle or corset- Women forced their bodies to fit the dresses.
C) MEN'S CLOTHING. Use your modern shirt or jacket as a rough guide only. Men's clothing today is cut much roomier.
You cannot assume that just because you wear a 44 jacket, you have a 44" chest. Please grab a tape measure.
D) A 70s suit should fit you snug & sexy. Think John Travolta in SNF and how tight those pants were.

Some helpful hints

Western Shirts - If the sleeves are too short, just roll the sleeves. Looks much sexier anyway to show those muscled forearms.
Dresses - Women made their bodies fit the dresses, not vice versus. Wear a corset or cinch waist undergarments for a smoother "wasp waist" look.
Pants - Deal with the fact that you are taller. Wear some crazy coloured socks and dont hound me for 36" inseams on 1950s pants, they dont exist.

In general - I cant say it enough, get out the tape measure! Online shopping rocks and I must say I offer some really cool clothing, but no one is happy when the clothes dont fit..
