Thought I'd pop in and be lame with a random 'hows the sizing' question, but y'know, how's the sizing with the Bronsons and Bob Dongs?
My coat has nine buttons, but I always fascinate.

Both sites quote specific measurements for chest, shoulder, sleeve, length etc., for tops, and waist, rise,lehgth, thigh and hem etc. for bottoms.

They also specify pre and post sizes on items that are raw/not pre-shrunk.


So the guesswork is largely taken out of the ordering process


As 4444D says, the size ranges are essentially for the smaller Asian frame, rather than the often larger occidental sizes.



I take a size 40 chest, which, using normal tailoring rules, equates to a pit to pit of approx 22inches/55cm.


This can often be the largest, or next to the largest size that Bronson and Dong make.


Despite the foregoing, some Chinese companies, such as Labour Union, tend to be suited to a very slim frame, even when the above rule of thumb is applied.


I have some VERY tight vests from Labour Union - no deep breaths when I'm wearing them!
