Sizing Guide

How to Choose the Correct Size

The sizing of clothing and accessories is not an exact science, so we are happy to provide as much information as possible to make it easy to choose the correct size.  If you are unsure in any way, please use the chat/help button at the bottom right of the screen or telephone us for advice in working hours or leave your details and we’ll get back to you.  We can help you get the right size first time!

Dressing Gowns

Our dressing gowns have sizing information on the product page.  Our gowns are true to size, so there is no need to “size up” just in case!  Dressing gowns, by their nature, are loose fitting.  Generally the neck to hem length of gowns does NOT increase as they get larger, so if you are buying for a very tall, slim man, don’t simply buy larger – please call us for advice.


Our kimonos, yukatas and happi coats mostly come in one size that fits Small to XL.  A limited number of styles come in a second size that is suitable for XXL to 4XL (Sumo Size).  The belts are generally sufficiently long for all sizes, but on rare occasions, a longer belt may be preferable.  We have stock of toning and contrasting belts – please ask us for details.


Using a tape measure, wrap the tape around the dominant hand (i.e. right hand if right handed) at the widest part (across the palm of the hand and around between the thumb and index finger) and make a loose fist. Make a note of this measurement and compare with our sizing chart.  Gloves should be a snug fit when first tried on, as they will stretch to accommodate the shape of your hands.  If your hand measurement falls between two sizes, order the next size down.  Do not size up for safety.

There are seven standard glove sizes for men, but to make life easier, the five sizes S, M, L, XL & XXL are often used.   Glove finger length is related to the width.  If you have particularly long or short fingers or if you require any other help with sizing, please don’t hesitate to call us on 020 3371 7716.

A Tip for Ladies Glove Size

There is often a correlation between a woman’s shoe size and her glove size.
If you don’t know the hand size, the easy fix is to find out the shoe size and use the following guide.
It’s not a guarantee of the right size, but it works more often than not.

  • Women’s shoe size 4 – Try glove size S.
  • Women’s shoe size 5-6 – Try glove size M.
  • Women’s shoe size 6-7 – Try glove size L.
  • Women’s shoe size 7 and above – Try glove size XL.
