HATS

Our hats are shown with both UK hat sizes and centimetre measurements.  For those of you in a hurry, there's also S-M-L-XL.  If you don't know your hat size, take a tape measure around the back of your head at the widest point and across the forehead.  Pull it as snugly as you would like the hat to fit, and position the tape where you would like the hat to sit on your head.  Make a note of the measurement and round it up to the nearest whole centimetre on the chart below.  This is your hat size.   Some hat styles also come in "half sizes" of 56cm, 58cm and 60cm - if available, these sizes will be shown on the product page.  

A word of caution:  Matching the size of your head, how you like the hat to feel and the dimensions of the hat can be somewhat subjective, and varies from person to person and hat maker to hat maker.  We will gladly exchange hats for an alternative size.

WOLSEY

Wolsey Mens Shirts are sold around the World and consequently are sized in US, UK and metric equivalents.  Wolsey shirts are cut to fit the body sizes in the table below.  ie. Compare your actual measurements with the table below - the shirt is cut to accommodate your size.  (NB This is the opposite to the Ben Green and Hilditch & Key tables which show the SHIRT measurements, not the body measurements).

 

 

 Shirt Size  To fit neck (inches)  To fit neck (centimetres)  To fit chest (inches)  To fit chest (centimetres)
 M  15.5"  39 - 40 cm  40"  102 cm
 L  16" - 16.5"  41 - 42 cm  42"  107 cm
 XL  17"  43 - 44 cm  44"  112 cm
 XXL  17.5" - 18"  45 - 46 cm  46" - 48"  117 - 122 cm
 

 

Ben Green Shirts come in standard continental collar sizes (in centimetres) or as XS-S-M-L-XL etc. The imperial inch equivalent is shown on the tables below.  The sizes show are the shirt measurements - NOT your body measurements.

The key to Ben Green's success is their BEN GREEN CUSTOM FIT.  The shirt's cut is in keeping with the neck size for most men - in other words if you have a smaller neck size, the shirt is cut slimmer (but not slim fit), and if your neck is 45cm or larger, the shirt will have proportionally more ease around the waist.

Compared with a classic shirt, Ben Green's sizes up to 42cm (16.5") are slightly  larger (2cm) around the chest for those of you still going to the gym, together with a more defined waist (up to 10cm neater than a classic cut shirt).  In sizes 43cm (17") and above, the proportions are correct for the stouter frame, with a straight cut through the body, and more generously sized than a classic cut. 

What does this mean in practice?  Ben Green's fit will suit most men; however, if you're a F1 driver with huge neck muscles and a tiny frame, these shirts will be too big in the body.  If you're a normal bloke, whether slim or heavy, these shirt should fit!
We recommend CUSTOM FIT for most men.  It is NOT slim fit.

Hilditch & Key Shirts are sized in INCHES.  The metric equivalent is shown for convenience.  The measurements shown below are the SHIRT measurements, NOT the body measurements.

The Standard Size Specification from Hilditch & Key allows for a precise body fitting for each collar size.  Like a well-cut suit, Hilditch & Key Standard Sizes are gently tailored through the waist to enhance the silhouette.

GLOVES

 

How to determine your Glove Size

Using a tape measure, wrap the tape around the dominant hand (i.e. right hand if right handed) at the widest part (across the top of the hand and around between the thumb and index finger) and make a loose fist. Make a note of this measurement and compare with our sizing chart.

There are seven standard glove sizes for men, but to make life easier, the five sizes S, M, L, XL & XXL are often used.   If you require any help with sizing, please don't hesitate to call us on 020 3371 7716.

LADIES GLOVE SIZE TIP

There is often a correlation between a woman's shoe size and her glove size.

It's not a guarantee of the right size, but it works more often than not.
 

Women's shoe size 4 - Try glove size S.

Women's shoe size 5-6 - Try glove size M.

Women's shoe size 6-7 - Try glove size L.

Women's shoe size 7 and above - Try glove size XL.
