Sizing & Condition Guide

Sizing information

Sizing of clothing currently on the market is different to vintage sizing. Most vintage sizes run a lot smaller than modern sizes, so you can't always rely on what is printed on the label of a vintage garment. Thus, every item of clothing on our website is listed according to actual modern-day South African (or UK) size and fit. These sizes are all estimates, as modern sizing isn't even standard across brands and countries. For reference, we like to use Woolies sizing as a guideline.
