Mens Measurements / Sizing

All items are listed in sizes of Small, Medium, Large. To ensure a perfect fit I encourage you to leave a note at checkout with your measurements.

Men – Body length, chest, hips, top of leg, thigh etc

Required measurements will depend on your order- see Measurement/Sizing guide. When reviewing the Measurement/Size Guide please be aware that all the fabrics I use have at least a 40% stretch. This means that if a garment is 30 inches wide it can stretch up to a further 12 inches. This is however, not the case with the elastic waistband. For example: a size Medium has an elastic waistband of 29.5” – this will stretch comfortably to 35” waist. It can stretch further but this is the standard amount of stretch I use within my sizing.

Trunk / Maxi Trunk

When ordering the Trunk and Maxi Trunk I have added a ‘Custom’ option. If having viewed the Measurement/Sizing guide and you wish for a bit extra or less in one of the body measurements you can require a ‘Custom’ size where you are permitted one alternation at no extra charge. For example, with a pair of Maxi trunks you can request a wider leg or add an inch into the waistband. When you pay for your garment select “Custom” in the size option. Please pay as normal and then email me your requirements as well as your measurements. It is very important to me that you get the perfect fit. If there is an issue with your request, I will email you to discuss what you require.

However, if your size is not listed, please email me as I am happy to create any size for you. Every piece is handmade to your specific size and takes time to create. All orders take up to 14 days to be handmade and then 3-5 working days for delivery. For international shipping please allow up to 7-14 days.

Custom Sizing – Vests

Vest are only made by personal measurements to ensure you achieve the required fit you like. Some men prefer a fitted style and some don’t!

When you wish to purchase a vest please check your measurements against my Measurement/Sizing guide to see which size is closest to your own personal measurements. You would purchase a custom vest in the Sizing option and pay. You would then email your best fit size (small, medium or large) and your personal measurements.

I would make a personal Toile (mock-up of the vest you wish in a similar fabric). This would be sent to you (at no extra cost) for you to try on and pin etc so you are happy with the fit. You would then either email me your alterations if they are simple changes or we could face time where I could see how the toile fits you and we could discuss it. You would also be sent a return label so the toile could be returned to me. Example of alternations– 2 inches longer in the body, 1 inch wider in the chest, 1” tighter the whole way down the body length from under the arm to bottom of vest.

Bespoke Vest

I currently only have a few Vest designs on my website so if you wish for a totally unique, original design please email be first so we can discuss what you may require. You can go totally ‘Bespoke’ which would be a slightly higher price due to the extra work involved. Please email me at mail@andersonchiles.com
