lost in translation

bigorange
Ahhh, the joys of working with factories in China. I had a client ask for me to make some shorts in a more “American” sizes. So I talk to my factory rep, and use the waist sizes that I had talked to my client about.

Things seem to be fine. I order 100 pairs of shorts, and after the usual 15-20 days for production, I get the shorts to my place. They look great!
– but….. they are HUGE!! As a man that wears an XL usually, I find it odd that I fit into a Medium pretty easily.
bigorange2What happened? I remember my factory rep giving me a size chart for the skirts that I ordered. It had the waist labeled as “half-waist”…
– my factory rep took the full waist size and took it that I meant that for a half-waist measurement. WTF?!?!?!!?

Well, looks like I have some shorts that will definitely fit the larger american market…
