A NOTE ABOUT SIZING


There's no perfect way to find the right size when shopping online. Conversion guides like statman.info are a helpful starting point to gauge how British and European clothes will fit, but since designer silhouettes vary from house to house, it's smart to try on clothes in a brick-and-mortar store first. And keep an eye out for digital retailers who don't make you pay for returns.
