American clothing is popular with consumers. High-quality material, good cut and versatility in use - that's what attracts buyers in it. You can buy clothes of American brands not only in the USA, it goes on free sale in all stores in the world. Most often in our country it is purchased in stock and second hand stores, or via the Internet.
Choosing the model you like, the buyer immediately pays attention to the fact that American sizes differ from domestic ones. The only thing that comes to mind at this moment is to look at the size matching table. But not everything is so simple. In fact, the Americans themselves cannot name their exact clothing size. This is due to the fact that every designer and company that sells clothes is guided by internal politics. Therefore, American sizes for the same cut item may have different markings. In what way does this manifest itself? Initially, the United States has generally accepted standards for clothing sizes, as in Europe and Russia. But this does not stop manufacturers from labeling it the way they prefer.love it.
The most famous and common brands use Latin letters to indicate sizes. This marking resembles European markings, where size S is for a small figure, M is for medium, L is for large. With the help of the letter X, derived dimensions from the standard ones are defined. That is, size XS for a very small figure, XXL for a large figure. As a rule, such marking is used when American sizes of jeans, trousers and outerwear are determined. However, US sizes for jackets start at S. If you wear a size 46 on our size chart, then jeans in size S and a jacket in size M will fit your figure. For size 50 wearers, order outerwear in size XL, and pants in size L.
In addition to letter markings, two types of digital markings are often used - for men and for women. They are commonly used by manufacturers of dresses, T-shirts, shirts and sweaters. It is much easier to compare them with domestic sizes. To do this, you need to perform simple arithmetic operations in your mind. In one case, subtract 36 from the domestic size, in the other, add 6. Thus, American clothing sizes for women start at 1, and for men - from 38.
Let's take an example. The girl wears clothes of size 44 purchased from domestic manufacturers. She goes on a tourist trip to the US, where she decides to go shopping. She needs to remember that among sweaters and T-shirts she needs to look for size 8, XS jeans, anda jacket marked S. But it can also happen that a size 8 blouse can be large. With what it can be connected? Everything is simple. This clothing collection uses a different layout.
As we can see, American clothing sizes are very difficult to remember. Therefore, US residents are used to buying clothes from the same manufacturers in order to avoid confusion when choosing a size. But if someone is going to buy clothes of another brand, he must first try them on. For those who are familiar with the dimensional grids of different manufacturers, changing the wardrobe is not difficult. And for our compatriots, you should still try on the clothes that you plan to buy. If you purchase items online, be sure to check with the supplier how US sizes compare to domestic sizes.
