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.

Acne Studios sweatshirts

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.

Acne Studios T-shirts

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.

Acne Studios trousers

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.
