You should put up a survey on this!

For jeans, I would probably put thighs up there on par with waist. There's definitely a camp of people that size to thighs as the waist will stretch but the thighs less so. If you state in the description what type of rise they have you can typically get away without posting rise measurements. The other big one for me is leg opening. I don't really care at all about the knee.

For shirts, assuming short sleeve, chest and length are the two I pay attention to (in that order). For long sleeve shirts, as a tall guy I always look for the sleeve measurement as well. If it's not available I usually don't buy it unless the return policy is decent.

There's also a lot to be said for posting the model's measurements and the size they are wearing. I find that more useful than measurements a lot of the time.

Edit: And I realize I didn't answer your question. I would say laid flat (e.g. 17") is by far the most popular way of presenting the measurements.

It's funny, I feel like I'm used to seeing the waist measurement as the flat measurement doubled but the other measurements (thigh, knee, hem) as just the flat measurement.

front rise is more important than thigh, personally. i'd rather see 11.5" or 12.5" explicitly rather than "full rise" or something. 

 

btw, i had a chance to visit S&S for the first time this weekend... i used to visit a yarn store that was right there, maybe the same space? anyways cool store and great atmosphere. there was some street fair so it was pretty crowded. nice to say hello!

We do put the front rise on everything for our size charts.  Thanks for coming in, by the way!  We are in the spot that the yarn store used to occupy, just completely gutted and rebuilt.

Question for you guys about buying clothes online:



For measurements on shirts and jeans, the first/most important one is the chest / waist.



We've been discussing whether we should be putting up our measurements as full, or laid-flat.



For example: Jeans 17", or 34"? Shirts: 22" or 44"?



Thoughts?

I would do as it laid flat, the same way the Blue Owl Workshop does it as well as most other companies. The reason being that if you specify the full measurements some customers may take this to mean that this is the tagged size, not the actual measured size (ie. laid flat x2). I've come to view BOW's fit guide as being fairly accurate since they tend to measure several pieces to get an average. I also measure all of my denim this way and have dialed in my fit so that if I look at an accurate sizing chart i'll know which size to buy. also, doing pre-soak/post soak measurements is useful if you guys are selling unsanforized denim -- don't know if you offer any but it's another helpful tool that assists buyers. my 2 cents

Summer sale just kicked off!

 

We're holding a lot more in-store than online, as well - we've got 7 seasons worth of bits and pieces worth coming and checking out!

Pure Blue Japan KS-013-WID 16oz Slub Deep Indigo &  XX-011 13.5oz Left hand twill

We just got our delivery of two versions of the slim taper fit, usually found in the XX-013.

 

The first is absolutely stunning. It is a 16oz "knubby selvage", which is deeply slubby and textured in a way we've not seen in any other denim here. Both warp and weft are rope-dyed in various shades of indigo, creating a ton of variance in the appearence.

 

 

 

 

 

The slim taper fit works well for most guys, but we suggest sizing up 2" from your usual. For example, Brandon (pictured) is a 31 most of the time, and is in a 33 here.

 

The XX-011 is a slightly slubby grey-weft left hand twill, a little flatter and smoother than the usual PBJ denims, but still filled with unique character.

 

 

 

 

Same slim taper fit, but not quite as small. It's possible to size up 1 from usual waist size, but most people have been going 2 sizes up.

Check out the product page here.

 

And here's the size chart:

Size Front Length Shoulder Chest Sleeve Length
38 27 17 43 25
40 27.5 17.5 45 25.5
42 28 18.5 46 25.75
44 28.5 19.5 47 26.25
46 28.5 20.5 47.5 26.5

 

 

We've been recommending true-to-size for warmer climates, size up one for layering for the plain khaki N-1.

Every year, Denim Bruin brings some of the rarest, most interesting brands in denim from around the world to the San Francisco Bay Area.

Ooe Yofukuten will be coming all the way from Ichinomiya, Japan just for the event; Indigofera, from Sweden; and Michael Masterson, from his secret headquarters on the moon.

 

Ooe Yofukuten will have Denim Bruin t-shirts knit and sewn in Ichinomiya (yes, knit right there) in collaboration with Mr. Matsuoka as part of their new brand M&O Mfg.

 

Sunday the 31st, we will be hosting the event at our shop in Oakland from 12-4pm. Cocktails from Rob of Workhorse Rye will be poured to go with all of the incredible work on display from our friends-in-denim.

 

It's always a good time, and we hope to see you there! If you can't make it out, check us out on Instagram and @standardstrange on Snapchat.

Saw the Matsuoka project on Instagram. The algorithm recommend it based on other posters of sewing machines that I follow.

Denim Bruin sounds like some fun. Will look forward to seeing some photos.
