Correct Measurements Made Easy
If you come to the store, our friendly and discreet Denim Experts will work with you to get your perfect measurements. If you are purchasing from us online and need to determine your measurements follow these simple instructions. Remember, styles, cuts, rises and lengths change from designer to designer, so its always best to try on any individual pair of jeans for that custom fit. We don’t care what size the label says, just whether they look awesome on you.
- The key is that your jeans should fit snugly and comfortably from the inseam to the waist.
- Typically your jeans are a size larger than your physical waist for a comfortable fit. Use a cloth measure band and hold the band loosely when measuring. For your waist measure the smallest part of your torso above the belly button and add 1” for a medium or higher rise.
- If you wear a lower rise jean, then take your hip measurements at their fleshiest part, because this is where they fit on your body.
- If you have a perfect fitting pair of jeans already, measure the inseam on them (from the crotch to the inside ankle). Remember your inseam does not relate to your total height. You may be tall and have a longer torso/shorter inseam.
- Consider the type of footwear you wear the most to get the right length for you. Generally your back cuff should align at the top of the foot sole, although this may vary with the style.
- For Skinny styles allow a 1” pleat in the fabric above the foot plate, so the style does not look too short.
- For bootcuts, wear your regular footwear and your seam should be 1” – 1.5” off the floor, depending on your preference.
- The same is true for Flare styles, ensuring the fabric sits well on the front of the foot and does not catch on the heel and fully covers the foot bone curve.
