Vintage sizes differ from modern sizes, but at BOAS we remeasure all jeans to guarantee perfect fit, regardless of what’s on the tag. So you can take your modern size and buy the size you see on BOAS.
All measurements must be taken directly on the body. If your measurements indicate different sizes, it is your hip/seat size that determines. If your measurements are between sizes, choose the smaller size for a fitted look, or the larger size for a looser look.
Use a measuring tape and measure the narrowest point of your waist. Don't pull too tight.
Measure around the fullest part of your hips. Make sure you keep the measuring tape as horizontal as possible.
Measure around the fullest part of your thighs.
