In order to select the correct size and get a good fit, it's a good idea to measure a garment that fits the way you like and compare it to the sizing charts provided.
All measurements are taken flat in inches
- WAIST- stretch and smooth out the waistband so that it lays as flat as possible and measure straight across. This measurement gets doubled so, for example, if you measure 16.5" your pants have a 33" measured waist. This is the most important measurement for getting your sizing correct. The tricky part is that most fabrics will stretch 1"-1.5" in the waist after wearing them for a while so this has to be taken into account. Each product description has notes about the fabric and amount of stretch you can expect.
- THIGH- measured just below the crotch seam straight across to the outseam.
- KNEE- measured 14" down from the inseam straight across to the outseam.
- LEG OPENING- measured straight across at the hem.
- RISE- Line up the front and back waistband so they are even and smooth the fabric so everything lays flat, then measure from the waistband to the lowest part of the rise (it will not be where the inseam is).
- INSEAM- measured from the crotch seam to the hem.

"Vanity" vs. "True" Sizing
Most men's pants and jeans are not sized according to their actual (true) size, but typically measure about 1-2" larger in the waist than their tagged size. For better or worse this is how we are used to buying our jeans whether we realize it or not. So for example if you typically wear a 32" jean, your measured waist is probably about 34". What this all boils down to is that you should probably order the same size in Grease Point Workwear as you do in most other brands, or perhaps one size up based on how you like them to fit. Grease Point jeans should run close to what the "industry standard" is these days. If you have any questions at all please don't hesitate to send them to email@example.com
- CHEST- straight across under the armpit.
- SHOULDER - measured across the highest point on the body where the shoulder and sleeve meet. This measurement is best taken from the back of the garment.
- SLEEVE- measured from the shoulder seam to the cuff on the top of the arm.
- CENTER BACK LENGTH - *taken from the back of the garment* measured from the seam at the base of the collar to the hem . If the shirt/coat has a collar stand (a separate band of fabric that attaches the collar to the body), measure from the bottom of the collar stand to the hem.
