How to Buy Clothing Online
I am a very happy shopaholic as most brands have gone online. Which means I can buy clothes without leaving home.
The only catch of online shopping is that you can not try things, so a proper fit is like a roulette race – it may or may not happen. But I have managed to perfect my shopping style and I also want to share this:
Act. That’s pretty much it. Most brands have their own ideas about sizes and the like, which means no two “S” sizes are alike. Over time, they understood and began making measurements for each item or size chart to get lawn collection. The size charts are not that reliable, but I assume they work if the actual lengths or widths are missing.
Taking your measurements does not mean that you really have to measure yourself. You just need to measure a garment in the same style as the one you want to buy. Which means you can not measure your duffle coat and expect these stats to fit a tight shirt. For example: you want to buy a new leather jacket. Get your favorite leather jacket out, the one you know fits you perfectly, pull out a ruler and get ready to play. Do not measure a custom or custom item! Use a stock if you want the measurements to fit in another stock. Always go from sewing to sewing with the clothes extended. For shoulder width, go from left seam to right seam. For the sleeve length, go from the shoulder seam to the end of the cuff. In general, these two measurements are sufficient to ensure a correct fit. There is waist and waist as well as length measurements if you want to ensure an exact fit. Unless you are underdeveloped or overdeveloped in these areas, you really do not need them. However, the chest is measured from under the arms of the garment, where the lower sleeve meets the body. Go from the right stitch over the chest to the left stitch and there is your number. For the length, go from the top seam on the back, not from the top of the neck, to the end of the jacket. Do this on the back of your clothes when lying down.
For any other clothing, the measurements are practically the same. Do not measure yourself, you get wrong numbers and therefore wrong goods.
