Sizes for vintage items can greatly vary depending on the age and region of origin of the product.
You'll often find the size on the tag of an item does not accurately reflect the true size of the pick.
So to combat this issue we list a “Best Fit” for each pick in the size description.
This is the best estimate Pott Hedd can provide based on current standard Australian sizing.
Pott Hedd also provides measurements for picks that can be a bit tricky without trying on first.
Such as vintage Denim and more.
These should always be used as the most accurate method to ensure that a pick is the right fit for you.
