How to take your waist measurement – Due to the high-waisted fit of these trousers, a correct waist measurement should be taken 1 inch above your belly-button/hip line. Use a tape measure on your skin, applying a small amount of pressure to obtain a good reading. We use your natural waist measurement to make your trousers, please don’t rely on what size jeans or trousers you normally shop for as these sizes generally allow for an extra 1/2 inches for ease. In most cases, you will measure 1/2 inches larger than what you are used to, eg. if you normally take a 34 inch trouser, your natural waist will measure a 35/36 inch. Please see the diagram below for an illustration of how to take your measurement, if you have anymore questions please get in touch.
How long does the inside leg length come? – We offer a free leg-alteration option on all our trousers so they’re ready to go when they arrive with you. Please select your leg length or opt-out if you want to receive them with a long and un-hemmed 34 inch inside leg for you to alter at your own leisure. We recommend a plain finish on the hem and we suggest to give them a little to no break over the shoe to help keep the sharp silhouette of the tapered leg.
Please note, as these are made-to-order we do not accept returns or offer refunds. We're totally committed to selling high-quality products and hope that you'll never find yourself in this position. Please review our order terms for more information.
