A single is the size that is suitable for absolutely all (onesize). But it's hard to imagine that the same thing is going to be at least decent to look at people, say, 40-th and 50-th size.
Each country has its own system of clothing sizes, so it often happens that a man traveling to different countries and on the shelves of stores, gets confused: what size to choose?
It is logical in this case to resort to using tables of size conversion, but the problem is that the data of such tables often do not coincide, so it is possible to determine only an approximate size.

A single European size
Europe first adopted the single sample labelling. According to Russian media, representatives of the National Textile Association (Unitex) held a meeting in Milan and unanimously came to the opinion that over the last half century, the Europeans (both adults and children) have become much taller and larger. In this regard, it was decided to introduce a single European size, so when buying clothes to avoid chaos and confusion. A single standard called the EN 13402.
The basic principle of the unified system of marking of clothing was accounting for the volume of the breast of the buyer. The clothing sizes for adults specifies bust, waist and length. For children the same clothes, except for parameter growth, which was mentioned earlier, now accounted for and even bust and waist, which greatly simplifies the selection of clothing for large and full of children.
According to the President of Unitex, Lodovico of Jakera, the introduction of the European single size is historic in nature and is useful and convenient action for the clothing manufacturer, the seller, and most importantly – for the consumer.
