We are frequently asked if our work trousers are small or large in sizes. We would say they are pretty true to size. If you cannot decide between two sizes, we usually advise you to pick the smaller size because of the stretch around bottom and waist. The trousers will also stretch after a few days’ usage, although they return to their original size after washing. Compare it with a pair of well fitted trousers you have already, to help you decide. Also, most of our trousers has a slimmer cut than work trousers for men, especially when it comes to the width of the leg.
To measure :
- Measure your waist at the thinnest point, usually a couple of cm above the belly button.
- Measure your hip at the widest point. Start at the hip and let the tape measure slide down to the widest point.
- Inside of leg length is measured on the inner seam of the trouser leg, from the crotch seam to the end of the hem. A good tip is to measure a pair of your own trousers and use that measurement.
- Measure the bust at the fullest point, usually around the height of the nipples. Adjust the tape measure slightly up at the back to give the lower part of the shoulder blades space.
- Make sure the tape measure is horizontal when measuring. Ask someone to help you or stand in front of a mirror to get it right.
If you don’t have a tape measure to hand, just use the neat trick of using a string and then measure the string against a metre stick.
