    Hello, I was looking to order possibly a pair of you engineer pants or maybe 1936 chopper pants. My question is the width of the lower hem. I have perchased a pair of your overalls and the width was a bit wide. Is the width uniform with all of your pants? I did wear a 36in waist, but I ordered the overalls in a 38in waist because I didn’t know it might fit after a wash.
    Thanks you and happy holidays to you all!

    Hello can you help me please ? I’m in the UK and I want to buy one of your ‘1954 UTILITY SHIRT LONG SLEEVE OATMEAL’ but I’m not sure of the size to buy. I’m a 44 inch chest so would that be a medium or small ? They look fairly close fitting in the photos but in some the medium looks a little baggy, and I will probably wear it underneath a shirt, but I don’t want it too tight in case it shrinks a little.
    Love your products.
    Thank you,

      Hi Andrew, I think you should take the small one because it´s a soft fabric and should not shrink if you take care of the washing instructions.

    I’d like to buy a vest for my fiancé. The pictures in this articles aren’t visible. Where can I find the measurements of your vests?

    Kind regards
