Denim Fit Guide
If you're wondering why there's always a difference between the marked size and measured size of vintage jeans, it's because vintage jeans were made as 'shrink to fit'. Jeans would shrink after washing and mold to the owner's body. That's why we measure each pair of vintage jeans very carefully. Please make sure that you know your measurements while you are shopping. Do not rely on your modern size.
Our listing titles tell you the waist measurement of each pair of jeans or pants. Measurements are taken with the garment laying flat, as shown in the illustration below. We double the flat waist measurement to get the true size. For example, when we take a flat waist measurement of 13 inches, we double that number to get the true size; 26. It's helpful to check the flat measurements of a pair of jeans or pants that you own and compare with our measurements.
