However, we have to use the labels to provide a tracking system for the stock we have available. So the sizes we list will have some interesting additional letters and numbers for our purposes.
Here's a few examples with a brief overview to explain a few of them.
For example - 170/84 = suitable for a person of 170cm height with 84cm waist
For example - GR7 = suitable for a person of 170cm height with 84cm waist
For example - 96/100 i/ii = suitable for a person of 170cm height with 96cm waist
(i/ii = short, iii/iv = regular height, v/vi = tall and vii/viii = extra tall)
For example - 88C = suitable for a person of 170cm height with 88cm waist
(C refers to short, R is Regular, L is Long)
For example - 6080/7080 = suitable for a person of 170cm height with 84cm waist
(The first four digit number i.e. 6080, refers to a height range of 1.80m to 1.90 metres tall. The second four digit number refers to the chest or waist size range, depending on the garment)
Other nations use a variety of random numbering methods where a number is allocated to represent a set height and chest/waist.
Therefore, you can see why we use the simplified method of measuring, and stating chest, waist, jacket drops etc to help you decide.
