I received some APC jeans from Yoox, and they are supposedly a size "38" but aren't even close to that, they appear to be in the 30-31" range for waist. Anyone have any idea what sizing scheme they use for this?

European Sizes are roughly equivalent to US regular sizes +10

So an american 38R is roughly equivalent to an European 48

An european 48 have size 42 trousers... that is half the waist measurement in cm, total 84 cm makes 33"

This is called a "Drop 6" as the trousers are 6 less than the jacket ( 48-42=6 )

Yes a 38 trousers are equivalent to 76 cm = 30" waist

by the way ... the 48 is half the chest measurement... so total is 96cm = 37.8" ... or almost 38


Just be careful... the trousers are signaled as this when they are sold as separates... size 42... if they are part of a suit they are sized as 48 ( part of a 48 drop 6 suit )
