How to Measure
With a measuring tape, wrap the tape around your waist where you normally wear your pants. Add 1” to the measurement and order that size.
With a measuring tape, hold one end at the top of the inner pant leg seam (the crotch) and measure all the way down, along the inside seam to the bottom of the trouser or pant.
You can also perform this measurement by laying a pair of your best fitting trousers flat on a table and measuring from the crotch intersection seam, down along the inside seam to the bottom of the trouser. Keep the tape tight against the seam.
What Rise Should You Wear?
Many of our Berle and Charleston Khaki trousers and pants are available in 3 different rise lengths, R (regular), S (short) and L (long). Berle’s “rise” measurement is taken from the crotch seam of the pant up to the bottom of the waistband.
How Do You Know What Is Right For You?
Regular Rise: Regular rise is the most common rise and will usually fit average size men. If you are used to buying your pants and trousers off the rack, and they fit well we recommend our regular rise. For a 34” waist man our “regular front rise” measurement will generally be around 10”. Regular rise is offered in every waist size.
Short Rise: Short rise is best for a shorter than average man. The shorter rise measurement cleans up extra fabric in the crotch and seat areas of the pant that would be visible if wearing a longer rise. For a 34” waist man our front “short rise” measurement will generally be around 9”. Short rise is offered in select trousers and pants beginning at a 30” waist up to a 44” waist, even waist sizes only.
Long Rise: Long rise is best for a taller than average man or a man who has a longer torso and a shorter inseam. For a 34” waist man our front “long rise” measurement will generally be around 10 ¾”. Long rise is offered in select pants beginning at a 36” waist up to 48” waist, even waist sizes only. Long rise is also available in select big & tall trousers and pants.
