misc. questions

do the clothes bought in england correspond to us sizes?...in other words if i buy a tshirt that says x-large, is it same size as a us bought shirt?
this may have been answered before but are the heritage passes a good deal?...and should they be bought here in usa?

friardave- in one answer- NO--

Get a good guidebook and in the back they always list size conversions for the UK,Italy,France etc...including clothing and shoes.....

The numbers are higher for clothes (a women's US 8 is a British 10), and lower for shoes (a US 7 1/2 is a British 6). You might also encounter European sizes. Do a google for "British clothing sizes" and you'll come up with any number of charts comparing the different systems (there's one at http://www.kitchenhelper.net/clothsize.html).

Of course, there's still no guarantee that one shop's 10 won't be another shop's 8, and relative sizes--like X-large--can vary even more. I usually carry a tape measure and a list of measurements taken from favorite clothes (in-seam, underarm, and so on).

You really won't need a tape measure (but having one is sometimes useful for other things)

Since UK, US and Continetal clothing and shoe sizes are all totally different, most clothing has all three sizes on the label/tag. And if it doesn't, most merchants have conversion charts posted.

No matter what the tag says, you've got to try on garments especially.

Herigate Pass was not a good deal for us.
