THE QUARTZ CO. SIZE & FIT GUIDE
Text by:Quartz Co.
From fitted down jackets to directional oversized styles, Quartz Co. provides a range of sizes and fits that cater to a wide variety of lifestyles and sartorial preferences. Read on to find out how to determine your size and measurements, and to find out which fit is right for you.
Step One: Determine your size
First, to find your size, take your body measurements by following the instructions below. Compare your measurements to Quartz Co.’s size chart to determine your size.
1. Shoulder Width
Place the measuring tape at the place where your shoulder meets the top of your arm. Stretch the tape across to the same location on the opposite shoulder. The total measurement is your shoulder width.
2. Sleeve Length
Place the measuring tape at the center back of your neck. Move the tape down your shoulder and arm to your wrist. The total measurement is your sleeve length.
Place the tape measure under your arm and measure around your bust at the widest point. The total measurement is your bust measurement.
Wrap the measuring tape around your waist at the narrowest point. The total measurement is your waist measurement.
Wrap the measuring tape around the fullest part of your hips and seat making sure it lies flat but not too tight. The total measurement is your hip measurement.
Step Two: Find your fit
Once you’ve determined your size, you can find which fit is right for you. To determine your preferred fit, you’ll need to consider a few different factors, including whether you’d like your jacket to fit snugly or loosely, and whether you’d like to wear it with lighter or heavier layers. Read our descriptions of each fit to determine which is right for you.
Quartz Co.’s fitted styles fit closest to the body, giving a snug fit that follows the contours of the body and cinches the waist. If you want to wear a fitted jacket with heavier layers, we recommend sizing one full size up to accommodate additional fabric.
Quartz Co.’s semi-fitted styles follow the body’s contours closely, however not as snugly as our fitted jackets. Semi-fitted jackets can be worn with both light and heavier layers without the need to size up or down.
Quartz Co.’s slim-straight styles follow the body’s contours slightly without cinching the waist. Because these jackets aren’t designed to fit snugly, they can be worn with both light and heavier layers without the need to size up or down.
The regular fit is the most classic of our fits. These styles are designed to provide comfort and ample ease-of-movement through many outdoor activities. Because regular fit jackets aren’t designed to fit snugly, they can be worn with both light and heavy layers without the need to size up or down.
Quartz Co.’s oversized styles provide a casual look allowing for maximum ease-of-movement and comfort. These styles are tailored with a looser, more fashion-forward silhouette. If you want to wear an oversized jacket in a more fitted manner, we recommend sizing down one full size.
