Sizing conversion question......

Rate this topic

9 posts in this topic

I really don't understand why some companies overseas lack the explanation in their sizing charts when describing some of their clothing and apparel lines.

Can anyone help with converting the below chart from "CM" to "Inches" on a pair of Savage Gear Waterproof pants i'm interested in? 

I ask because when doing the actual conversion from a simple online conversion chart, the numbers don't make sense..... :why:

I think someone just made those waist and hip measurements by flattening the pants like a pancake and taking a tape measurement to it because the company doesn't seem to have a size guide themselves. The inseam lengths are what you would expect (eg. the large is 32 inches).

What about the waist for the large?  They convert to 19.68" and the hip length converts to a short ass 23.62"??  

 

They are all over the place with these numbers.

Its a flat measurement across the piece. Not circumference.

 

Just double any (round portions) the waist or hip for the circumference.

 

So for L waist, 50 x 2, 100cm x .3937, 39.3 inch. 

L hip, 60 x 2, 120cm x .3937, 47.24 inch.

Dont double the inseam.

 

This measurement style is very accurate.

Very common anywhere outside of the US
