He's 6.2 feet (190 cm) tall, chest circumference 37.7" (96 cm), waist circumference 33.4" (85 cm). Check out our sizing pages for detailed measurements.

Free Shipping in Vancouver, Canada
If you live in, or are visiting Vancouver, and want to avoid shipping costs select "Pick Up in Person in Vancouver, Canada or at a Product Pick Up Party in Vancouver, Canada".
If you have selected this option we will email you to arrange for a free pick up/delivery meet up. We arrange delivery you based on your and our schedules and location. This means we might drop off at your place, might meet you at the beach or on a hike.
This option is available no matter where you live; however, to take advantage of it you must be able to be physically in Vancouver or have someone else meet us in person. If you have selected this option, but will not be in Vancouver we will refund your order and you can re-book with an appropriate shipping method.
Do You Use Tracking Numbers?
All Canadian shipping options include tracking numbers.
For destinations outside of Canada we included untracked delivery options, which allows customers to choose lower cost options. So we and the carrier can best help in the event of a mishap we recommend choosing a tracked option.
More About Tracking
If you selected a shipping option that includes tracking you will you will receive an email with a tracking link about 24 hours after we have prepared your items.
It can take up to 24hrs for the link to activate. Once your package leaves Canada the tracking links may not update, but the package is still on its way.
If you live outside of Canada you may be charged customs or other government fees. This depends on the product you ordered and which country you are in. Every country has different regulations (and fees) for how they handle imported goods. We do not-prepay or over any import fees.
Before you order you can get an estimate of any fees you might find by going to this website.
Small orders are always shipped together and arrive all at the same time, larger orders may be split into multiple shipments. The easiest way to make sure you get larger orders all at once is to join us at a Product Pick Up Party.
North-West Expeditions Sizing
All fit true to size. If you are normally a medium, you will be a medium.
For example, when Ian is buying shirts he's mostly a medium, but sometimes a small (especially when he's more fit). He is always a medium in our Tees. Our friend Bill thinks of himself as a medium and he is in fact exactly a medium in our clothing. You get the idea.
We offer classic fits, not surprises.
Since you may not have met Ian or Bill here is some more detail. If you have your measurements and want to compare ours are below. If you don't know your measurements, grab yourself a soft measuring tape and check against this, or buy the shirt size that normally fits you and if something goes wrong take advantage of our return policy.
Our Kid's Classic Crew is made for kids from about 8 years old to teenager. The dimensions are here. For smaller kids (under 8) we recommend the XS and a couple hot wash and dry cycles.
Our Paddle Crew Tee is made in the USA and fits true to form.
NWE Classic Hoodie
Our NWE Classic Hoodie also fits true to name. The trick here is to decide if you want a comfortable but fitted hoodie or something a little oversized to snuggle into. We'll leave that to you. Here are dimensions to help you choose.
We're small, but we believe it is still important to give back.
