These garments are sized by Length, Waist and Seat.
Waist and seat are fairly clear to me (circumference of the person where the “belt line” is; and circumference of the person at the widest bit of the bum, respectively) but Length baffles me and no measurement we make of a cadet seems to match the available measurements for the garments particularly closely. Also, “length” for skirts and “length” for slacks are clearly separate measurements,
SMS just doesn’t seem to bother with it
Gents trousers use Inside Leg instead of length. Is the same measurement made for slacks and called “length”, or is it along the outside of the leg to the outstep?
For skirts, I’d have thought it would be the measurement from the waist line to the knee but even accepting some built-in spare material this always seems huge.
Am I close?
