Things to Note

  • ALL MEASUREMENTS MUST BE IN INCHES.
  • MEASUREMENTS SHOULD BE EXACT BODY MEASUREMENTS. DO NOT LEAVE SPACE/ROOM,  WE KNOW HOW TO ADJUST YOUR MEASUREMENT TO MAKE IT COMFORTABLE.
  • DO NOT MEASURE OVER YOUR BELT OR LOOSE, BAGGY CLOTHING. WEAR FITTED CLOTHING WHEN DOING THIS.
  • IF A TAILOR IS TAKING MEASUREMENTS FOR YOU, PLEASE TELL HIM/HER TO FOLLOW THE GUIDE HERE AND TAKE EXACT BODY MEASUREMENTS. WE NEED YOUR BODY MEASUREMENTS.

Neck

Measure around your neck at the height where your collar, if buttoned, would be.
This measurement should be taken along the lower section of the neck, below your Adam’s Apple and above your Sternal Notch.
The tape should be comfortably touching the skin, with enough room so that you do not feel restricted.

Full Chest

Measure around the chest at its fullest part (typically right under the armpits and shoulder blades, right across the nipples).
Hold the tape against the body tight enough so that it does not slip down but, not so tight that it restricts breathing.  It should be snug.
Make sure the tape is horizontal and the person’s arms are by their side; then take a normal breath and measure.   

Do not puff out your chest.

Full Shoulder Width

Measure from the end of the right shoulder to the end of the left shoulder.
We define the “End of the Shoulder” as where the horizontal plane of the shoulder intersects the vertical plane of the arm (see illustration).

Sleeve Length

Measure from the end of the shoulder to the base of the wrist.
The base of the wrist is found where the base of the arm and the top of the hand intersect (approximately 1 inch beneath the wrist bone or where your shirt cuff will normally end). 

Double check with the other arm to make sure. Should not be more than 1 inch difference. 

Bicep

Measure around the fullest part of the bicep with the arms by your side. You need only measure one side.

Wrist

Measure around the fullest part of the wrist.
You only need to measure one side.  

Belly/Stomach 

Measure around the fullest part of the belly/stomach or right below your bottom ribs, whichever is greater.   The tape measure will normally pass on top of the belly button.

DO NOT HOLD YOUR BELLY IN OR PUFF IT OUT.

Hips/Seat

Measure around the fullest part of your hips and buttocks.

Front Jacket Length

Measure straight down the front, from the base of the neck (right or left side) to the point which is level with your thumb knuckle. 

Front Chest Width

With the person’s arms by their side, measure across the front of the chest.
Start at the front of the right armpit, continue measuring across the nipples, and then stop at the front of the left armpit.

Do not measure under the arms. 

This is the front part of the full chest measurement we took in step 2. 

Back Width

With the person’s arms by their side, measure across the back.
Start at the back of the right armpit, continue measuring across the shoulder blades, and then stop at the back of the left armpit. 

Do not measure under the arms. 

This is the back part of the full chest measurement we took in step 2. 

Half Shoulder Width

Measure from the base of the neck to the end of the shoulder.
We define the “Base of the Neck” as the point at which the vertical plane of the neck intersects the horizontal plane of the shoulder.

Full Back Length

Measure from the base of the back of the neck to the floor.
We define the base of the back of the neck as the point at which the 7th cervical bone is located.  

To easily find this point, have the person being measured tilt his head forward so that the knobby bone at the base of the neck becomes obvious.  Once located, you can have the person stand straight again and then measure.

Half Back Length

Measure from the base of the back of the neck to the base of the trousers’ waistband area. This normally determines the back length of your waistcoat so, if you have a long torso, measure this very well.

Trouser Waist

Measure around your waist at the level where you would normally wear your trousers’ belt.  
With the tape measure snug around your waist, relax, and take the measurement. 

Don’t be alarmed if this measurement seems larger than expected; off the rack pants are normally labelled as being smaller than what they really are. 
PLEASE GIVE US THE EXACT MEASUREMENT HERE.

Trousers’ Outseam

Measure from the top of your trousers’ waistband to the floor along the outside of your leg.  
Make sure the tape is stretched straight, that you are standing straight, and then measure. 

Trousers’ Inseam

Measure from the lowest part of your crotch area to the floor.  
Make sure the tape is tight along the inside of your leg and that you are standing straight, and then measure. 

Crotch

Measure from the front top of the trousers’ waistband to the back top of the trousers’ waistband.  
Make sure not to take this measurement too tight. 

Thigh

Measure around your thigh at its widest point.
You only need to measure one side.

Knee

Measure around your knee at its widest point. 
You need only measure one side.

Full Sleeve Length

Measure from the base of the neck to the base of the wrist.
The base of the wrist is found where the base of the arm and the top of the hand intersect (approximately 1 inch beneath the wrist bone or where your shirt cuff will normally end). 

Double check with the other arm to make sure. Should not be more than 1 inch difference. 

This measurement should be within a half an inch of the sleeve length and half shoulder length combined. If not, recheck those two measurements.
