For a rough selection of available fabrics, please download a rough PDF at the following link, below. Not all fabrics are available in the same quantity and many are not replenishable stock, but new fabrics are regularly acquired. This will be updated from time to time, but as of September, 2017, this represents a fairly accurate selection of fabrics and manners in which they can be treated. A larger resolution copy of this file is available by email.
Alas, sizing is a fickle and often arbitrary unit of measurement, contingent on desired fit and ideals of the head. When ordering a garment to specific sizes, it is often best for a customer to reference garments that fit them most appropriately. Much of modern clothing is sized according to a range of what are called vanity sizes and the numbers do not necessarily correspond to the tag, label and measurements of the garment itself. It is not the intention to fully immerse a customer in a process in which they are unfamiliar, but it can be interesting, all the same.
Purchased items can be re-tailored, at times, free of charge. However, please bear in mind that it is more so possible to reduce the size of a garment, but next to impossible to make it larger. As such, it would be better to err on the side of caution.
For shirts and jackets and other tops, please lay your favorite fitting item of a similar type flat. It should be closed, fully. From the underarm seam, please measure from armpit to armpit. For garments such as suits, where paneling may not fall exactly at the side, please try to lay the garment as flat as possible and do your best to measure in a straight line across. This is largely the most critical measurement in ensuring a proper fit for tops.
Sleeves and lengths of many garments on this site are cut a little bit longer than one may be accustomed to. If desiring a specific length, please just note that at the time of purchase.
Trousers, skirts and other various bottoms are largely based upon desired fit. Vanity sizing is often more inherent in these types of products. Certain pants and dresses have specific rises, or desired looks inherent, which affect sizing as we see it in the world.
Again, please try to lay your garment as flat as possible and measure from side to side and then double for the total circumference.
If it is the case that the front of the lower body reference garment dips below the back, you may find it easier to use a string to follow the path of the waistband and then transfer said string to a ruler. Alternatively, it may be easier to be measured from seam to seam, say side seam to back seam and side seam to the center of the top front button. The seat, or actual hip of a bottom can be taken into consideration, too, if need be.
As for the leg of a garment, measuring from the side of the hip, downwards, is far more critical a point of reference in determining the length of trousers than the inseam. The inseam is often referenced when buying clothes and while important, it can be a largely unstable unit of measurement, contingent on desired fits of items.
