As a new customer, are the trousers mailed together when I order several pants?

It crucial for us that SELFNATION trousers fit perfectly from the very beginning. Therefore, when you are a new customer, we only send you one pair - if the trousers fit and you are happy, we will be shortly working on more trousers for you.


How do I measure myself?

Measuring yourself up is really easy. After you have chosen your design, you have to input your measurments. Just follow the instructions for women or men given in the video. Every measurment is accompanied by a video which shows you how to measure correctly. Insert the measurments that you have taken; our tailors will make sure that your trousers fit perfectly.
