Buying jeans, especially raw denim, is an investment. It can also be overwhelming and confusing when done online. That's why we've put together this measurement guide to help you in the process. We want to make sure you feel comfortable in your purchase knowing that the jeans fit well - and wear even better - for years to come.
To start, grab a measuring tape and your favorite pair of jeans when they fit you the best (e.g. straight out the dryer or maybe after you've worn them for a week straight). This is important as it is the basis for finding the right pair of jeans for you and ensuring a proper fit. Next, follow our steps below to measure your favorite jeans and use the photos in each step as a guide. Compare those measurements to the measurements of the jeans on our website. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We can't wait to get you into some denim!
Lay the jeans flat on a surface and button the top button of the jeans. Make sure the waist band is pulled tight and measure from one side of the jeans to the other. This is the half waist measurement. Double this number to find the true waist measurement. For example, a half waist measurement of 17" would be a true waist measurement of 34".
Measure from the crotch seam to the top of the front of the jeans. This is the front rise measurement.
Measure from the crotch seam straight across to the outside of the jeans. Be sure to keep the measuring tape parallel with the waist band. This is the thigh measurement.
From the crotch seam, measure 13" down the inner leg of the jeans. Then at this point, measure from the inner leg to the outer leg. This is the knee measurement.
Measure from the inseam of the leg opening to the outseam. This is the leg opening measurement.
From the crotch seam, run the measuring tape down along the inseam to the bottom of the hem of the leg opening. This is the length measurement.
