Don't Be A Slave To The Label
General Sizing Suggestions:
Claridge and King Fitted Shirts: Designed to fit closer to the body. Many of our customers size up in the Claridge and King fitted shirts, particularly if you are busty or have wide shoulders. Sizing up also works well if you are Petite but would like the Boyfriend Shirt look.
Frank & Eileen: Frank and Eileen shirts also vary in size by body style. When making your size selection in the drop down menu you will see Frank and Eileen's letter size along with their suggested number size for that particular style. We suggest using the number size listed while taking into consideration any special fit notes we may listed or that individual style.
International Sizing: We source our shirts from all over the globe. Some of our shirts are tagged with French sizing while others may be Italian. The sizes listed on the shirt's drop down menu will show the Euro sizing followed by the American size.
Fitted Shirts: Designed to fit closer to the body. Many of our fitted shirts are also listed as European Fit, which is a trimmer fit overall. Proportions will be slightly smaller in general than American sizing. We find many of our customers do best by choosing one size up.
Relaxed Fit: Designed not to hug your body, you can usually stick with your usual size. If the fit is also a bit oversized or perhaps fitted in a specific area we will note that in the individual item description.
Long: We consider a shirt to be Long if it covers your rear and has a longer front length as well. We find this TAG helpful when you are looking for something you can wear with leggings or perhaps as a cover up. Some of our petite customers can wear long styles as dresses. It is not a Tall and it does not imply sleeve length.
Drop Tail: The back hem is longer than the front. Drop tails will usually cover your rear but because of the shorter front length they may not work well with leggings unless you are petite. They do usually look great with skinnies or fitted pants. If you would like a measurement, drop us a note or give us a call and we'll measure your size.
Unisex: Our collection of unisex shirts are looser fitting throughout the body, including the bust, tummy, hips, and arms. Men's sizing means go down one size if you want it big and roomy, two sizes for a relaxed fit.
This will give you a general idea of sizes. Please use this as a guide only and be sure to refer to each item's size suggestions to choose the right size for you.
For Example: The equivalent size for XL will vary by style. A CP Shades XL will fit a 14-16 while a Claridge and King Fitted Shirt in XL will fit a size 12-14.
Most of our shirts are machine wash/hang dry unless noted. Always check the manufacturers label before washing or dry cleaning.
Exposure to water, perfume, hairspray, lotion and other similar elements is not recommended and can change the appearance of natural stones and finishes. Jewelry should not be worn in the shower, the pool or to the gym.
