Size & Fit

This size guide helps you to match The R Collective sizing with your usual size. You will find precise product measurements on each product page.

We offer two sizes: XS-S and M-L. As our business grows, we would love to add more sizing. For now, you will find our styles and fits are flexible for different shapes and sizes. This size guide serves as a guideline.

Tip: Are you a size 4 and are unsure of which size to go for? Depending on the style and your mood, you may opt for either XS-S or M-L. For a looser, more oversized fit, you may opt for M-L. For a more fitted look, you can opt for XS-S. Every style features product measurements so you can be sure of the right fit for you. 

Some of our styles follow three size options: S, M, L. The size guide below is a guideline to convert to your usual size.

Packaging and Environment 

In our ongoing efforts to lower the impact on the environment generated by the business, we continue to discover innovative ways to deliver our branding and core values through our packaging, for which we have made the following actions:

- We have developed partnerships with Avery Dennison, a world-leading innovative packaging solutions provider to wrap our garments in an environmentally friendly, water-soluble packaging. With Hydroplast, we’re able to reduce our impact on the environment and provide our customers EN13432* certified protective garment bags.

- We use a light compostable bag for packaging instead of a classic carton box that is usually used for international parcels. It is lighter and takes less space with Air Freight and therefore is more effective with less CO2 emissions.

    Our goal is to be a mindful brand. We always treat our customers with the utmost respect and work diligently to find the best solution shall a problem arise. Despite our best efforts there might be circumstances that are out of our hands but our team is always happy to help.

      DENIM REIMAGINED

      Designed in collaboration with designer, Jesse Lee, we are minimising waste by challenging the way fashion is made with ‘Denim Reimagined’, a nine-piece upcycled collection.

      Every piece is made from upcycled Levi’s® aged inventory and irregular and leftover samples. These were unstitched and then resewed by an eco model denim manufacturer, under Crystal International Group, who have implemented many sustainability initiatives over the past 10 years, with significant savings of energy, carbon footprint, water and chemicals.

      RESCUE. REUSE. REIMAGINE.

      My new upcycled collection brings sustainability to the forefront. Around 80% of a product’s environmental impact is locked in at the design stage. I reimagined my entire design process so that people understand how their clothing choices and care habits affect climate change.

      Upcycled Denim

      The Dore Dress was created using a pair of denim dungarees and Levi’s® 504 jeans. Each panel was carefully unstitched, disassembling each panel ready to be reimagined into a new piece. With the power of creativity we give a second life to aged inventory and irregular and leftover samples. We pieced together the panels, exposing contrast denim washes, original seams and authentic Levi’s® hardware an overt reference to its previous life as denim dungarees and jeans.

      37%

       of jean's climate change impact comes from the way we care for it.

      REDUCING CLIMATE IMPACT

      In partnership with Avery Dennison, Denim Reimagined’s product labeling is made from recycled materials and using zero-waste water-soluble materials to highlight our #WearAndCare initiative.

      Each of the clothing’s care labels include an integrated digital experience, provided by EVRYTHNG. Simply scan the unique QR code on the garment’s care label to learn more about the clothing item and receive one of four different sustainability-themed messages: how the garment was made; how to care for clothes to reduce clothing’s climate impact; solutions to keep fashion in use and out of landfills; and the collection’s story.

      Upcycling is one of the most sustainable things we can do with our clothing, as anyone who’s owned a pair of vintage Levi’s® knows. As such, we’re proud to support creative upcycling projects, like The R Collective’s Denim Reimagined and are encouraged to see the progress they’re making.

      IMPACT

      One pair of jeans, along its entire lifestyle from crop to disposal, generates 33.4kgCO2-e, which is the equivalent of driving 69 miles by the average US car.*

      By finding a second life for Levi’s® aged inventory and irregular and leftover samples, we’re avoiding the need to create raw materials and reducing fashion’s negative environmental impact.

      *According to Levi’s Life Cycle Analysis (LCA).

      The People

      We believe in creating garments made to last so you can love and wear them for seasons to come. This piece was created using upcycled Levi’s® aged inventory and irregular and leftover samples, sourced, unstitched and resewn by an eco model denim manufacturer, under Crystal International Group, who have implemented many sustainability initiatives over the past 10 years, with significant savings of energy, carbon footprint, water and chemicals. Pattern cutter, Mr. QingHe Huang and seamstress, Ms LiChun Zhong lovingly crafted each piece, approving every final stitch before it made its way to our warehouse in Hong Kong.
