Fabric: Nung gop cotton
Translated to English this means Frog Skin cotton, but do not let the name fool you, it is a soft light cotton with a slight texture running through it. We sometimes catalog this material as fiber cotton and internationally it is often classed as a tabby weave. The label might not state cotton, the cottage industry here does not take care when labeling items.
This cotton is normally only available in natural colours, white, black, cream and brown. From our experience this material can shrink and the colours may run, especially on the first few washes. To reduce shrinkage and colour loss follow the suggested care instructions below.
- 1 inch (1") = 2.54cm.
- The given sizes are approximations only, exact measurements may vary.
- The items label may not match the advertised size, Asian labeling can be non-standard and we will often market an item according to European standards.
- To compare sizes take a similar item of your own that fits well and lay it flat, smooth it out and make sure it is buttoned or zipped if applicable. Use a tape measure to measure straight across, making sure the tape measure is tight.
- You may need to leave extra room for bulky items or for movement.
- We generally use the chest measurement to assess a shirts advertised size, but please check all measurements as Asian clothing sometimes does not conform to European norms.
ck height is from the highest point on the shoulder (not including collar if applicable) to the bottom hem.
eeve length is from the top edge of the shoulder (normally at the seam) to the end of the arm.
oke is from the top edge of each shoulder (normally at the seam) across the top of the shoulders and back of the neck. The Yoke is not straight across the shirt, it rises up at the back of the neck, passing the prominent neck bone.
- A common way of measuring sleeve length is from the prominent neck bone, across the shoulder and down to the end of the arm. This can be calculated from our measurements by adding half the Y
oke to the SL
houlder, and A
rm measurements are obtained by measuring once across and then doubling this measurement.
SLeeve length: 26.5"
BAck height: 34"

- Some shrinkage is normal for cotton and rayon garments, please allow for this.
Sometimes our items do not conform to European sizing standards, it is important to check all of the measurements in the description rather than buying purely by size. To test an item is suitable first carefully read our measurement notes, then compare the given measurements to an item that fits well.
