About a year ago 7L started a mission to bring more textile design and manufacturing back to Britain and especially back to Manchester. Around the same time, English Fine Cottons were on a similar mission, to produce some of the world's finest quality cotton yarns right here in the NORTH WEST OF ENGLAND. The cotton manufacturing industry's spiritual home.

Ordering The Correct Size Garment

It can be tricky shopping for clothes on the internet and ordering the correct sized item. For you the customer, it’s important to get this right, it saves the frustration of having to return garments that don’t fit. We’ve found the most accurate and effective way to get the perfect size garment is to do a pit to pit measurement.

Pit To Pit Measurements 

Take your favourite garment, one that is the fit you are looking to replicate. Lay the garment out flat and measure from just below the armpit on one side across the chest to the other armpit. It’s important to lay the garment flat and fully extended while not unnaturally stretching the item while measuring. This gives you the pit to pit measurement.

Remember to take an inch off each side (approx) for your body measurement. Obviously this all depends on the design and style of the garment so is just a guide.
