Sizing

Vintage clothing sizes can vary vastly from modern sizing. Because of this, we provide detailed measurements to help you determine whether or not a garment will fit correctly. We also include within our description any sizes on the garment tag and a recommended modern UK size, however this is just an estimate so please refer to the measurements to best determine fit.

We do occasionally pin clothing to fit our models, so please read all measurements carefully. We do not accept returns for items that do not fit. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about sizing at info@poor-boy.co.uk or on our live webchat application on our homepage.

All measurements are taken with the garment laid flat and provided in inches. Please double these measurements if you require the circumference of chest and waist.
