Many of our size guides are straightforward because most labels have straightforward sizing systems that can be easily translated to your existing wardrobe. Sometimes, though, a brand comes along and breaks all of the rules. One such brand is Acne Studios.
Acne Studios is a Stockholm-based fashion house with a multidisciplinary approach. Through founder and Creative Director Jonny Johansson’s interest in photography, art, architecture and contemporary culture, an alternative path has been found. The collections are defined by Jonny Johansson’s signature juxtaposing design and attention to detail, with an emphasis on tailoring and an eclectic use of materials and custom-developed fabrics.
Acne’s unorthodox approach to contemporary style comes in the form of asymmetry, oversizing, experimental materials and a general sense of otherness. That makes this one of the most important size guides to date. All measurements are in inches.
As can be said of all facets of the Acne collection, the crewneck jumper comes in all shapes and sizes at the hands of this label. From scuba material to oversized or vintage cuts, it’s certainly worth checking your size before you commit to an Acne Studios crewneck sweater.
This crewneck sweatshirt for men is crafted from midweight brushed jersey and features a wide, ribbed hem as well as the tonal face patch to the chest. A slightly relaxed fit gives you wiggle room with this piece so this doesn’t need to be an exact science.
Acne always finds a way to introduce something new to the mix, so even the men’s T-shirts are unpredictable. The unpredictability makes Acne Studios the perfect way to diversify your wardrobe.
Cut to an oversized fit, the Oversized T-Shirt features a tonal Acne Studios logo to the chest which has been inverted. Remember that the measurements for this crewneck T-shirt will seem large, but they’re meant to be.
While trousers obviously come in a wide range of cuts, materials and styles, they’re often the safest bet thanks to a mostly universal sizing standard. Acne uses the European sizing standard, so you may need to make a quick conversion if it’s not what you’re used to.
Characterised by a straight leg and heavyweight cotton denim construction, this pair of men’s workwear trousers is extremely durable and easy to style.
Whether you’re looking for a traditional chore jacket or something more suited to the fashion runway, Acne Studios has it for you. Few labels have perfected the mixture between subtlety and statement.
It’s simple and timeless while also brimming with character, thanks to a few detail-driven finishing touches. Cut to a boxy shape for classic chore jacket charm, Acne's twill chore jacket is constructed from stone washed cotton twill and features three roomy patch pockets.
