How to measure your denims

//How to measure your denims

We have often been asked by customers how they can find their right Pike Brothers jeans size. It is very easy to figure it out. Just follow these step-by-step instructions:

1. Take a measuring tape, a pair of jeans that fit you well, a piece of paper and a pen.

2. Lay the jeans on a flat surface and start measuring as shown in the pictures. Write down the measurements on the piece of paper.

3. The final step is to compare your measurements with the ones in our size charts, that you find for each garment in our webshop at and choose the corresponding size. Done!

For measuring the width make sure the front and back are at exactly the same height.



For the front and back rises measure from the top including the waist band down to the fold of the fabric (where the two pieces of fabric meet).




The last measurement you need is the bottom hem.


You don’t need to measure the length of the inseam (leg length) as it is a standard size.

      Hi Matt,

      thank you very much for your message. The thigh measurements was taken at the point where the seems meet in the crotch area and measured across the thigh. The measurement is about 30,5 cm for both sizes.

      Kind regards
      Pike Brothers

    Do you have any Ladies’ jeans?

    I see you have the Roamer in waist 27″ but I have no jeans to measure. I only have high waisted jeans.

    My natural waist is 26/27″.

    Which jeans would you recommend and can I go with your size 27?

    Hey, I am really fond of the 1908 MINER PANT 14OZ HEMP DENIM. But I can not find the size chart of that pant. Usually I wear a size w30 or 31 Levi’s 501 jeans. Can you give me a measurement of the waistline of that or some advices?

      Hi Jay…the thigh measurement of both pants should be about 33,2cm…but a margin of +/- 1cm is possible. Thanks
