Ocacia Complete Size Guide

MEN | WOMEN | KIDS


Ocacia does tailor made clothes based on body sizes. This is the most pretigious way luxury clothes are made. For your easy of use we have a size chart. Select your closest size and then you can email in your measurments. If your size is not listed, no problem contact us with your measurements. XXL and above may have an addition cost due to weight and fabric required. We cannot accept returns due to size errors.

WE ONLY ACCEPT TAILOR MEASURMENTS so send us neck, length if needed, shoulder to shoulder, waist, hip and sleeve length. We cannot accept made-up measurments like from my nose to my upper collar bone is 25 inches. If your measurements are confusing we will at our disregard them and go with stock measutments.

Different commercial brands use their own sizing system. Our sizing system is for tailor made clothes used by professional tailors. We do not use Vanity sizing, when we say a 36 inch waist that is what we mean, to fit someone with a 36 inch waist.

A Tailored fit

1 Check your shoulders-- you do not want the shirt draping beyond that bone at the edge of your shoulder.
2. Check your sleeve, at most the cuff should terminate 2" beyond that bone on your wrist(that is the max) the minimum should be to that bone with your elbow bent
3. The arms should not be baggie, the body should not be baggy showing excess fabric. 
4. The cut length should cover your zip
5. Ideally a Chinese collar should fit snug around your neck. It should not open up.

To get a better fit, let us know your shoulder to shoulder, your chest, your preferred length , your sleeve length (per our site).

How to measure

To choose the correct size for you, measure your body as follows:

1. Chest
Measure around the fullest part, place the tape close under the arms and make sure the tape is flat across the back. It is best to add 1-2 inches to get a loose fit. It is safer a little loose than too tight. Most of our clothes come with 20mm seams for adjusting.
