Hosn sizes range from XS to XXL, W26″ to W48″, EU sizes 44 to 64 for gentlemen and 34 to 58 for ladies, or sizes 2 to 24 for ladies in the US.
You can take all measurements yourself with a regular tape measure. If you need assistance, let us or a local tailor take the measurements for you.
For the best fit, please take all measurements on or close to the skin, not above trousers or jackets. Thank you!
The only measurement you need for your Hosn is the width around the top of the hip bone where the waistband of the trousers will sit snugly.
1st important note: This is not identical to the usual “waist” size above the hip. So if your size is W32 for jeans it might not be 32″ for Hosn!
2nd important note: Please measure above your underwear, not above your trousers (as pictured for aesthetic reasons). Hosn stretch, so they should sit tightly. When in doubt, go for the smaller size.
Anatomical reference: Full circumference along iliac crest
Result: Approx. 29″ to 44″ or 74 cm to 112 cm
To ensure Hosn will fit you, check if the length from above the waistband to your desired hem does not exceed 43″ (109 cm).
Note: Because the waistband covers the iliac crest, measure from slightly above the bone.
Anatomical reference: Distance between iliac crest and metatarsals (according to your taste)
Result: Approx. 88 cm to 108 cm
The inseam length is different from the outseam length.
Jeans lengths in inches (e.g. L36) are measured at the inseam from the crotch to the hem.
Hosn come at a fixed inseam length of 32″ that can be extended up to 36″.
Anatomical reference: Distance between perineum and metatarsals (according to your taste)
Result: Approx. 32″ to 36″
As above: Full circumference along iliac crest.
