All M5 jeans are sized using standard UK inch sizing.

To determine your size, follow the instructions below to get started.

1. Measure the waistband
First, measure the waistband of an existing pair of trousers. The easiest way to do this is lay the trousers flat on a table, with the top button closed. Use a measuring tape or ruler to measure from edge to edge of the waistband with a slight tension while you measure it. Multiply the number by 2 to determine your waist size.

2. Measure the inside leg
Second, measure the inside leg of an existing pair. To do this, with the trousers lay flat on a table measure the entire inside seam from the crotch to the end of the trouser leg, again with a slight tension to the trousers while you measure them.
