What is The North Face sizing like?

posted in: Hiking & Walking | 0

One of the most frequently asked questions we receive about The North Face clothing at e-OUTDOOR is “what is the sizing like?

There is no standard sizing across the various clothing brands. Most of us have probably bought an item of clothing online which we thought was our usual size. Then after putting it on, found that it was a little bit baggier or tighter than we had expected.

So it is not surprising that many customers should ask this question, and we want to help you find the best answer.

So what is the sizing like?

Some companies focus mainly upon the more athletic outdoor pursuits and so their clothing is cut to fit a slimmer figure. The North Face manufacture outdoor clothing for a range of activities and therefore they aim to cover a wide variety of body shapes. This can make finding a good fit a little more involved, you may have longer arms for example or a deeper chest.

Is it a Genuine North Face Product?

The North Face is a well known brand not only in the outdoor world but also in fashion. The brand is very popular and the logo carries a certain kudos about it. As with any quality product buying clothing from The North Face is considered an investment by many of us. It is not surprising then that there is a market for cheaper poorer quality imitations that carry the name and the logo.

So how can you tell if the item you have just bought is the genuine article?

All The North Face products have a hologram attached to their clothing labels proving authenticity. The clothing label can usually be found either inside one of the hand pockets or attached to the seam inside the body of the item of clothing.
