Please see the SIZE tab on each individual product page to see the measurements for each item.
At Fatboys we only stock proper sized clothing. We stock clothing from a 2XL to 8XL and footwear from size 9 to 16. Our sizes are larger than standard shops' sizes as our starting size, 2XL, is usually bigger than many standard shops' 2XL. Below is a rough guide of the average measurements of the clothes we stock. Please use this as a guide only.
We know it can be frustrating when different brands of clothing, supposedly the same size, can measure completely different. Therefore we measure each size of every product that we sell, which can be seen in the product description. Before purchasing any item please refer to the measurements stated in the product description, as some brands you may need a size bigger or smaller.
Please note: As we do not manufacturer the goods ourselves, we cannot guarantee every single item of the same style and size will measure the exact same. Therefore please allow a 1 to 2 inch difference between items. Any more than this we would consider the item to be marked up the wrong size and would happily exchange / refund it.
Please refer to the illustrations below on how our measurements are taken. We would recommend finding an item of clothing that fits well, take the measurements as shown below and compare these to the measurements stated in the product description to see what size would fit best.
|Chest||Measured across the fullest part of the chest. Usually 1” below the armpit.|
|Length||Measured from the back of the neck to the bottom of the garment.|
|Sleeve||Measured from the middle of the neck, across the shoulder and down to the end of the sleeve.|
|Neck||Measured around the neck.|
|Waist||Measured around the waist.|
|Rise||Measured from the back of the neck to the bottom of the garment.|
|Leg Length||Measured from the inside leg down to the cuff.|
|Thigh||Measured around the thigh, about 1” below the middle of the crotch.|
|Calf||Measured around where your calf would sit, usually 12” above the cuff.|
|Ankle||Measured around the very bottom of the cuff.|
Due to a change in Raging Bull sizes, we have marked down the sizes stated on the label, to bring them roughly in line with the majority of other brands we sell such as Kangol, Mish Mash, Espionage & Ben Sherman. Therefore you'll most likely receive an item with, for example, 3XL on the garment label but 2XL on the tag.
A while ago Raging Bull used to make a 2XL for the main shops, and another 2XL for outsized shops. To avoid confusion they stopped making 2 different 2XL sizes and so moved the size labels down, but kept the measurements the same. In short, they used to go from 2XL to 5XL, but now go from 3XL to 6XL.
We then marked the new 3XL as a 2XL, so if a customer previously bought a 2XL, they can continue to buy a 2XL and they will measure the same size. This also brought the sizes back into line with the majority of other brands we sell like, Kangol, Mish Mash, Espionage & Ben Sherman, however even these brands will have different cuts so will all measure slightly different. That's why we always recommend measuring an item of clothing you have that fits well and compare these measurements to the product measurements that can be found on every product page under the size tab.
Please Note: Ben Sherman make 2 different sizes, standard sizes for standard shops and outsized sizes for outsized shops. Therefore their 3XL standard size shirts will be smaller than their 3XL outsized shirts. A rough estimate is our 2XL Ben Sherman's will be the same size as standard shop's 4XL.
The main way you can tell which is a standard size and which is an outsized size, is the product code. Pretty much all our Ben Sherman product codes should have "IL" on the end (e.g. 0059310IL), whereas their standard sizes will not have "IL" on the end.
If you are unsure of the size you need, please refer to each product individual measurements, under the size tab in the product description. You can compare these to a garment you know fits.
