Clothing Guide and Measurements

We obtain our clothes from Thailand and Asia where they are made some of which are made for us exclusively. Clothing Garments that have been made in Asia are generally smaller in size in comparison to UK and western equivalents. The only exception is when the clothes have been made to order from western measurements and patterns.

We offer two types of clothes sizing

  • Already Made
  • Tailor-Made

Already Made Clothes

Clothes that are already made come in a range of sizes, S, M, L, XL, XXL, and sometimes larger. It is important to be aware that these sizes do not bear much resemblance to UK and western equivalents. Clothes that are made by Asian manufacturers generally make them for the home markets where body sizes are smaller in both height and body mass. This means that where you might wear a L size you will not be able to wear one made in Asia unless you go for an XL or Larger. This is a problem as many people don't want to buy clothes and admit it is a larger size for vanity reasons, this is a fallacy as the clothes we supply need to fit and we feel that's more important than looking at the small tag measurement code. To help you we have the following table and hope this will assist you in choosing the right fitting clothes size for you.

Clothes that are made to fit you will make you feel so much more special and display to your friends, family and work colleagues that you really care about your appearance and you will can make the best of your body shape instead of putting up with ill shaped clothes just because it's easier to buy off the rail.
