Frequently Asked Questions: Will it fit?

A very common question people ask with any vintage is this:  Will it fit?  There are a few tips to making sure the size you need is the size you get.  Most of our apparel items are described in hand measurements done with a tape measure.  This is because sizes on clothes and shoes have changed over time and even vary by brand.  What was a “medium” in the 1950’s is most likely a “small” or even “extra small” now.  If you live in a country that uses Metric for measurements, there are many websites for converting inches to centimeters.  One easy-to-use website is http://www.onlineconversion.com .  To go directly to centimeters, inches, et cetera, go to  Online Conversion – Common Lengths .
