TAKING MEASUREMENTS

Take your body measurements by wearing your best fitting shirt. It is easier to ask someone to help you and takes no more than 5 minutes. Our customers find this guide very accurate! If you wish, you can save your measurements now.

In order to increase accuracy, measure yourself exactly (do not add to the measurements to allow for movement). Our highly skilled shirt makers will then ensure that your shirt has enough room for movement and still looks like a perfect fit.

PREFERED WAY OF MEASURING: BODY MEASURES SHIRT MEASUREMENTS
 
 
1. COLLAR
 
2. CHEST

Measure around the lower back of the neck where the collar sits and at the front where it usually buttons up.

Tip: Ensure the tape is at the base of the neck where the neck and shoulders meet.

  Place the tape just under the armpits and measure around the upper (fullest) part of the chest.

Tip: When measuring, naturally inhale so that your body is full but do not puff out your chest.

     
 
3. WAIST
 
4. HIP
Measure around the fullest part of the waistline (above the trouser belt line). Do not hold your stomach in.   Measure around the fullest part of your hips.
     
 
5. CUFFS
 
6. SLEEVES      
Measure at the wrist bone (where a watch is usually worn). If you wear a large watch add appropriate allowance (usually ½ inch) for that arm.   Measure with arm at your side, from the tip of the shoulder to the knuckle of your thumb (specify each sleeve if they are different)
     
 
7. BACK
 
8. SHIRT LENGTH

Measure across the top of the shoulder from one edge to the other. Ensure you take the curved contour over the top of the shoulders as shown.

Tip: Wearing your best fitted shirt measure up to the shoulder seams.

  Measure from the base of the collar until the desired length.

Tip: This is usually the just below where the seat meets the legs.
