Typically when you buy pants , including jeans, off the rack, you will need to know your waist and your inseam number. The waist will be the first number and the inseam, the second.
An example is 32x It is also important to note that all of these measurements should be done in your undergarments, not over your other clothes. Now that you know what your US sizes are you will easily be able to convert to international sizes by using some helpful charts. Though most of the time you will find that these charts are easy to read, you may be surprised at some of the differences.
You also need to be aware of certain things, for example UK sizes are different to European sizes. This is not the only unusual thing about sizes either. For instance, sometimes Australian sizes are the same as the UK and sometimes they aren't, and France and Italy seem to have their own sizing systems altogether, that can be measured in either inches or centimeters depending on the listing. Many men will also buy Japanese designed clothes and these have different systems for sizing as well.
Typically US sizes will be based on the chest measurements, in inches, when it comes to buying suits and jackets. As with jackets, you will also need to convert your dress shirt size to different sizes if buying from overseas manufacturers. In this case, you will use your neck measurement in most cases. When in doubt, Italy, France, and Japan all use measurements in centimeters, so simply convert inches to centimeters, and for Australia, round up to the next size. Finally, you may need to convert pants sizes when it comes to international sizes.
The same rules will apply here; round up if your size isn't listed and follow the pattern if you are over or under these charts. You will also want to remember, when buying pants , that this is based on the circumference of your waist.
