Sometimes fit is hard to determine from editorial photos, so we've taken clear and simple photos of our model, Sam wearing Kishie. Sam measures a 99.5cm / 39.25" chest and is wearing a size 4 (finished chest circumference 102cm / 40.25").

Kishie vest on Sam, viewed from the front. It fits closely to his body without being loose.

With his arms lifted, the Kishie vest's bottom hem rises up.

From the back, it is clear that there is a small amount of negative ease.

With his arms raised, the back of the best wrinkles a little bit across the back

Viewed from the side, the front ribbing sticks out a little bit.
