Bonobos Fit Guide & Size Charts

Overall, we offer five different fits in our pants: Tailored, Slim, Straight, Athletic, and Relaxed. Please note that not all pants are available in all fits. 

Here's a quick rundown:

Tailored: Our narrowest fit in the seat and upper thigh with a distinct taper from the mid thigh down.

Slim: Trim, but not tight, in the seat with a moderate taper from the mid thigh down.

Athletic: Roomy in the seat and thigh with a distinct taper below the knee for a fitted look.

Straight: Trim, but not tight, in the seat with a leg that stays straight from the mid thigh down.

Relaxed: Roomy in the seat and thigh with a leg that stays straight from the mid thigh down. Link to Article

Each product has an inside label with detailed washing instructions. Please pay careful attention to these instructions as they are specifically written to ensure lasting quality of your Bonobos clothing. 

For most of our products made from cotton, the washing instructions are straightforward: wash with like colors in cold water and tumble dry on low, or air dry. Certain products may require more specific care - check the label inside first before washing!

As long as the prescribed care instructions for each item are followed, your Bonobos clothing should maintain their great shape and fit after washing.

Two Ninja tips:

For suits/blazers, definitely make sure to dry clean only!

For our Daily Grind shirts and our Weekday Warrior pants (and any products given a wrinkle resistant treatment!), it's particularly important to machine wash cold with like colors and tumble dry low. Do not dry clean these clothes! Our production team has determined that the chemicals used by most dry cleaners do not interact well with the wrinkle resistant treatment on the Daily Grinds and Weekday Warriors.

If you have questions or concerns about specific items, feel free to contact a Ninja. We're always happy to help!   ​ ​

Our suit jackets are half-canvased . The layers of canvas lining extend down beyond the pecs and stop at the first button on the jacket - which makes it a somewhat longer half-canvasing than you'd find with other brands.

The machine that lightly stitches these layers into place is ultra sensitive and imitates the handwork traditionally performed by a tailor. The only fusing used is to reinforce sensitive, high stress areas such as where the pockets are attached to the jacket's body.

All of our pants feature a curved waistband to better reflect the natural shape of your waist. These measurements are applicable to our Dress Pants, Suit Pants, and non-iron Weekday Warriors.

All of our suit pants come 37" unhemmed, and our wool dress pants come in 34" inseam (for waist sizes 28" - 33") and 36" inseam (for waist sizes 34" - 40"). Cotton and linen dress pants come in 30", 32", 34", and 36" inseams.

Our Jackets and Blazers fit similarly across styles. Our Jackets and Blazers are designed to be tailored and polished. They are offered in three fits, Standard, Slim and, Athletic, with three different lengths, Short, Regular and Long. 

Slim fit is narrower through the chest and waist with a noticeable taper, and a smaller armhole and shoulder width.  

Standard fit is a classic fit: trim but not tight, with a slight taper toward the waist.

Athletic fit is tailored with extra room for defined builds. The V-shaped silhouette matches the body's shape with a broader top and slight taper.

Long ("L") and Short ("S") blazers will measure 1.5 inches longer or shorter in body length and 1 inch longer or shorter on the sleeves than a Regular ("R") blazer.

The Blue Jean and Travel Jeans are a great option for a denim that will feel broken-in right out of the box. Both are woven with a tiny bit of stretch to accommodate your fit immediately. They are cut exactly the same so your sizing will be consistent between the two. The biggest difference between The Blue Jean and the Travel Jeans is the types of washes and rinses used on them to give them their finished colors. 

The Premium Stretch Jean is a classic construction and weave, making it ideal for those looking for the feel and finish of a more traditional pair of jeans. They do have a tendency expand up to a full size with wear because of the type of denim utilized. We generally recommend you sizing down from your normal Bonobos size when purchasing The Premium Stretch Jean. 

Selvage Denim refers to denim fabric woven with classic machines in a classic style. A single thread is woven through the fabric leading to a self-generated edge (hence the "self-edge" or "selvage", which can be seen on the outseam of our selvage jeans). The denim tends to be sturdier and carries the history of being made the same way for generations.

Summer Weight Jean is a lightweight American Cone Denim® that stays cool and comfortable in the warmer weather. Like The Blue and Travel Jeans, the Summer Weight Jean is woven with a bit of stretch to feel comfortable and broken-in right out of the box.  Link to Article
