How to Measure - Iron Heart and Triple Works Bottoms
« on: February 17, 2012, 04:14:32 PM »
Tom at Iron Heart The Works in Hachioji is the measuring expert (amongst many other things), and during our last visit she kindly demonstrated the “official” Iron Heart way to measure accurately.  See below for how we measure Bottoms (jeans, chinos, cords, painter’s pants etc.)




HOW TO MEASURE BOTTOMS

Do not go by tag size alone, we suggest you take a pair of jeans/bottoms that fit you well and measure them and then compare with measurements on our product pages to get your sizing correct.

Waist:  button the top button on the jeans/trousers, and pull them so that they sit flat in order to measure from centre of back to front closure, then double this measurement.




Front Rise:  measure from the central crotch seam to the top of the front waistband.




Rear Rise:  measure from the central crotch seam to the top of the rear waistband.




Thigh:  lay the jeans flat ensuring that any rear rise fabric is to the left of the centre seam and measure the TOTAL width (not just to the centre seam) ensuring that the measuring tape is at right angles to the weft (white) yarns (for denim).






Knee:  measure 13” down the inseam from the central crotch seam, at this point measure across the width of the leg.




Hem (or Cuff):  with the leg side seams together, measure the width of the leg opening.




Inseam:  measure down the inseam of the leg from the central crotch seam to the bottom of the leg.
