Sizing & FAQ

BRANDT-SORENSON is made-to-measure for the ideal ergonomic fit according to an athlete’s build. The cut is form-fitting while allowing for comfortable breathing in the chest and upper abdomen. Many athletes find that they do not fit precisely within a manufacturer’s size chart, such as the lean climber, muscle-bound rider, or tall cyclist. Our tailored clothing fits perfectly and is more comfortable, durable, and stylish when compared to off-the-rack pieces.

ORDERING PROCESS

To order a custom-made garment, select the 'custom' option in the drop-down menu when adding a product to your cart and send your measurements to info@brandt-sorenson.com.

The diagrams below show how men and women can take their measurements using a flexible tape measure. BRANDT-SORENSON customers must submit their measurements when ordering.

FAQS

- I am too busy to measure, can I just guess and then exchange for another size? 

No. Using a flexible measuring tape is easy. Or visit your local tailor. 

--------------------

- What's the difference between stretch-to-fit and made-to-measure? 

Stretch-to-fit requires high spandex content fabrics (up to 50%) and does not adjust for length. Made-to-measure utilizes appropriate fabric blends for correct compression, stretch range, length, and girth. Made-to-measure offers greater wear longevity and a proper distinct fit.

-----------------------

- Does 'luxury cycling apparel' just mean 'high price point'? 

No. We make bespoke and made-to-measure cycling attire in Los Angeles, California. Less than 3% of the world's clothing is bespoke or made-to-measure. Most apparel is off-the-rack bulk factory production with averaged sizing (this includes custom printed cycling kits).

----------------------

- Your prices are premium is there a 'secret' discount code? 

No. The prices are competitive for bespoke and made-to-measure garments from Los Angeles, California. These are the actual prices to make the clothing. We cannot offer clearance discount codes. 

--------------------

- How long will it take? 

3-4 weeks lead time, let us know if you have a hard date. Orders are queued based on purchase date. Lead times may vary. 

--------------------

- Can I stop by and try something on? 

No. Our workshop is private. This protects our intellectual property and keeps our made-to-measure pricing competitive with off-the-rack bulk production. 

 

---------------------

- Can you print our bicycle club name (instead of your trademark) on the clothing? 

No. 

-----------------------

- If I submit measurements or find my match on your chart, will it fit? 

Yes. We stand by our workmanship.
