Use the Sizing Chart seen below as a kind of a guide or starting point.
We get blanks from all over, and vendors don't necessarily conform to the standard charts.
Every manufacturer has differently sized patterns and a different understanding of what the size numbers and letters mean.
Some items may be UNISEX in size and this will be indicated in the listing.
Very few vendors "cut oversize to allow for shrinkage".
This means that after shrinkage, they should fall into the appropriate size ranges, depending on that vendor's interpretation.
With so much variation in the industry you will see size measurements in the image gallery on all of our listings.
Please use that as a guide when ordering.
