Fit Guide

Please note that all of the listed measurements for jeans on our website are based on a weighted average of multiple pairs and sizes.
As the products we carry all have a handmade aspect to them during production, no two pieces of the same product will be exactly the same size.
The Guide to Measuring your Jeans :
1. Waist : Pull the button up to line up with the back of the waistband, and measure from one side to the other. Double the measurement to get your waist size.
2. Front Rise : Measure from top of the front of the jeans, till the crotch seam.
3. Upper Thigh : Measure from the crotch seam, across the leg to the edge of the jeans.
4. Knee : Measure from the crotch seam, down the inseam until 33 centimeters (or 13 inches). 
Knee: From that point, measure across the jeans.
5. Inseam : Measure from the crotch seam all the way down till the hem of the leg.
6. Leg Opening : Measure across the hem of the jeans.
 
The Guide to Measuring your Long-sleeve Tops:
1. Chest : Following the image above, line the measuring tape to the seam of the armpit.
Take the tape all the way across the chest for a pit-to-pit measurement. Double that number for the Chest measurement.
2. Shoulder : Line the tape up to the shoulder seam as seen above.
Pull the tape across the shoulder blade to the shoulder seam on the other side.
3. Center Back : Line the tape to the back seam of the collar.

5. Cuff : Measure from edge to edge of the cuff.
 
The Guide to Measuring your Short-sleeve Tops :

The general sizing of the clothing we carry at Okayama Denim may be a more slim and tapered fit than similar sized clothing from Western brands (i.e. a tagged size 33 waist from one of the Japanese brands we carry, will probably fit like a size 32 in most international denim brands).
Raw Denim
With all of the Unsanforized or Raw denim we carry, please note that the denim will slightly adjust in size according to the body and daily activities of the user. We advise against any washing before at least 20-30 wears. More importantly, for unsanforized denim we suggest to allow the natural creasing and fading to appear before considering washing. Many aficionados will wear their raw denim everyday for at least six months before carefully washing their jeans by hand.
*Once washed, raw denim will shrink between 2.5-5 cm (1-2inches) around the waist, about 8 cm (3 inches) on the inseam of the jeans. Please be careful of this fact when selecting the right size for your raw denim.
One Wash Denim
Washed denim is generally true to size and will not shrink significantly, as is the case with unsanforized. This fabric, typically referred to as One Wash or Sanforized, is pre-shrunk and will shrink only minimally after the first wash.
