Size Chart & How to Measure
2019-03-23 Update: as promised in the coming days we will be releasing photos of our customers wearing Nighthawk for more visual sizing references, stay tuned!
Measurement Method 1: measure your own body
Sleeve: Measure from the shoulder line to the bottom of the sleeve
Chest: Measure under the arms at the fullest part around the chest/bust horizontally.
Waist: Measure around your waist at the narrowest part
Hips (Sweep): With the feet together measure around fullest part.
Measurement Method 2:
1. Find a jacket you have that you feel fits you the best
2. Measure the below 4 places:
- Hip (Sweep) - this is the elastic band at the bottom of the jacket
3. Find the closest matching size from the sizing chart
Measurement Method 3:
1. Send us an email to email@example.com, and tell us your:
- Height (cm)
- Weight (kg)
- Usual T-shirt size and jacket/blazer size
- What best to describe your BUILD: e.g. skinny, slim, average, athletic, muscly, larger build

ABOUT ZELUS LONDON
ZELUS LONDON™ is an apparel designer, manufacturer, and retailer based in London, United Kingdom. Taking inspiration from artists and thought leaders like Jiri Thyn, Ido Portal and Alan Watts, the brand stands for simplicity. All our garments are designed to create the perfect balance between function and form. Our popular t-shirts are created with Nanoflex, a bespoke performance fabric made to fit like your own skin, while being soft, stretchy and breathable.
Now, we are proud to present our latest brainchild, the Nighthawk jacket. We have teamed up with expert suppliers from around the world to craft a new, functional bomber jacket for urban living. The features of this jacket have been carefully curated to streamline your everyday city experience without adding bulk.
We believe that simplicity has the power to enhance your performance: there’s a reason that Einstein rotated five identical suits and Steve Jobs never deviated from his iconic black turtleneck and jeans. It has been proven again and again that the burden of decision-making wears you down. By minimising lower-order decision-making, energy is conserved for the things that really matter.
The Nighthawk jacket was created to streamline your focus by lifting the burden of tiny everyday stressors: deciding what to wear, the feeling of dread when you can’t find your credit card, tangled headphone clumps. At ZELUS LONDON, we believe that simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication. That’s why we think that Apple’s chief designer, Jonathan Ives, had it right when he said that ‘design is at its best and its most empowering when it simply disappears.’
We hope that Nighthawk appeals to you, the city dwellers that it was created for. Your support will allow us to continue to create streamlined, innovative and beautiful clothing, including a women’s line and winter jacket.
