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.
FRONT AND BACK RISE. Measure from the inseam to the waistband in the front and back respectively.
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.
There are a few different schools of thought on how to wash raw denim. Your safest bet is hand washing in cool water with a mild detergent and hang drying. If you’d rather use the washing machine or if they are really dirty wash on cold and hang dry. Please avoid the dryer at all costs. Usually your pants will feel a bit stiff and feel like the have shrunk a bit after washing, they will relax back to their normal size after a few days of wear.
