All customers ordering a custom size need to send us a few photos so that the pattern maker can get an idea of your physique. At a minimum, send us two shots - one of a front profile and one of a side profile. Examples are shown below. The main profile shots should be taken in good fitting jeans and a t-shirt. The jeans should be comfortable but not too baggy.
For customers that received a trial suit:
Please also add photos of you trying on the suit.
