The sizes of trousers

The sizes on the tags may be shown in 2 different ways:

  • only the size itself;
  • the length of the leg slash waist girth in centimeters.

Important: the labels often show the size in inches in W36/L34 format. This marking shows the waist girth and the leg length.

The rules and procedures for taking measurements:

In order to find the size of the trousers there are 2 measurements that matter:

  • waist girth: horizontal waist circumference is measured on the expected waistband;
  • the length of the inseam: horizontal measurement of the inner part of the leg from the crotch seam down until the shoe level.

When taking measurements the following rules should be followed:

  • when the measurements are taken the person should be wearing only underwear and no shoes;
  • the person should stand straight, in a habitual posture;
  • heels should be joined and the distance between the toes should be 15-20 (cm);
  • the measurements of the leg parameters (the length, the girth) is taken on the right side of the body.

Typical men bodies:

Important: regular size charts are made considering standard typical bodies. For nonstandard bodies there are separate size charts, that originally include particular body proportions. Every nonstandard size chart is supposed to have a corresponding marking.

A standard man body:

  • height from 146 (cm) up to 194 (cm);
  • waist circumference from 70 (cm) to 130 (cm);
  • chest girth from 84 (cm) to 128 (cm).
A standard woman body:

  • height from 134 (cm) up to 182 (cm);
  • hip girth from 80 (cm) to 152 (cm);
  • chest girth from 72 (cm) to 136 (cm).
