As Rokit garments are vintage items (unless stated otherwise), the label sizes can vary from today's standardised clothing sizes or sometimes not labelled at all. General wear and washing of garments may also alter the size label from the actual size. So we measure all our clothes in inches with the garment laid flat and re-label them to fit into today's standardised clothing sizes.
For all garments we prove a size and also detailed measurements. To help you work out which clothing size is right for you, please see our measuring guide video below & refer to the product size guides below.
We suggest you measure (in inches) a similar garment you already own and know fits well, in the same way we measure our garments and then compare the dimensions.
International Clothing Size Conversion
PLEASE NOTE: The Chest (flat garment) measurement in the product description is the actual measurement of the garment (pit to pit) multiplied by 2.
PLEASE NOTE: The Chest (flat garment) measurement in the product description is the actual measurement of the garment (pit to pit) multiplied by 2. This is not to be confused with the "chest size". (e.g a medium jacket, fitting a 38" chest will actually measure 42-44".

Vintage Clothing Care Guide
We want you to get the most out of your vintage clothes so knowing how to care for them is essential
With the right care, storage and a bit of TLC, your vintage garments will be worn for generations to come!
Washing vintage cothes
- Always read the care label and follow the washing instructions when available.
- Always check for loose seams, holes or frays before washing to avoid damaging the garment further.
- Always hand wash or dry clean vintage garments pre 1960s vintage as they are non machine washable. If the fabric is very old or delicate, good airing can often remove odour without damaging the garment.
- Always hand wash or dry clean silk, wool, velvet and any garment with beading. Please make sure your dry cleaner is experienced in vintage fabrics.
- Always hang up the vintage garments on a drying rack instead of drying them in the dryer.
- Attempt to wash your vintage garments less to avoid damaging the garment from repeated washing.
Storing vintage clothes
- Always keep your vintage garments in a dry, dust-free place away from direct sunlight to avoid fading and deterioration of fabric.
- Always hang up vintage garments to dry out perspiration instead of leaving them in a hamper until wash day.
- Always use wooden or padded hangers as wired hangers can ruin the fabric at the shoulders and cause rips over time.
- Always fold fragile silks, knits and beaded items carefully instead of hanging them.
- Do not store vintage garments in plastic bags or plastic storage containers as the fabric needs to breathe.
