Body Measurements

MEASUREMENT PROFILE:

Measure around your neck with the tape resting on your shoulders in the same position where the collar lays. You can hold one finger between the tape and the neck to allow for some comfortable breathing room.

Measure around your chest beneath your armpits and in line with your nipples. The measurement is taken as a circumference at the widest point of the chest. Ensure the measuring tape is level all the way around.

Wrap the measuring tape around your waist just above your belly button. Ensure the measuring tape is level all the way around. The measurement is taken as a circumference measurement.

The hips measurement is taken as a circumference measurement around your hips at the widest part. Ensure the measuring tape is level all the way around. The measurement is taken as a circumference measurement.

Wrap the measuring tape at the widest point of your bum. Ensure the measuring tape is level all the way around. The measurement is taken as a circumference measurement.

Measure from the base of the collar, following your body down to the point where you want your shirt to end. Keep in mind that untucked dress shirts should end at the middle of your butt or slightly higher. Tucked in shirt should end at the bottom of your butt or slightly below. The longer the shirt is, the better it will stay tucked in.

Identify the bones at the top edge of each shoulder and measure from bone to bone over the natural curve of your back. You can also refer to a shirt that fits well the shoulder by measuring the distance between the sleeves from one sleeve seam to the other

Measure from the bone at the top edge of your shoulder (where you took the shoulder width measurement) following your bent arm down to where you want the sleeve to end.

Measure from the bone at the top edge of your shoulder (where you took the shoulder width measurement) to where you want the sleeve to end

Run the tape around your shoulder and your armpit. The tape should not restrict your arm movement.

Measure the circumference around your wrist just on the wrist bone.

Relax your arm and measure the circumference around the widest part of your biceps.

With the watch allowance you can make one cuff slightly larger so that it will comfortably slide over your watch.
+ 12mm (0.5’’) is recommended for larger watches while + 6mm (0.25’’) is a good choice for medium size watches.
Thin watches don’t require any watch allowance.

Normal
If when wearing your shirt buttoned up you don’t see any wrinkle on each side of your neck down to the chest then you don’t need any adjustment.
Sloping
If you have larger trap muscles and you notice wrinkle running from the back of the collar towards your armpits, you can improve the fit by choosing sloping shoulders.
Square
If you have larger square shoulders and notice wrinkles running from the outside of your shoulders down towards the second button on your shirt, you can improve the fit by choosing square shoulders

The two pleats option comes standard on all our shirts. However if you want your sleeve to be tighter around your forearm you can opt for the one pleat option.

Neck Forward
If you notice a gap between the back of your neck and the collar, and if the collar feels uncomfortably tight at the front of the neck when buttoned, you can improve your fit with this adjustment. It will move the collar forward relatively to the shoulders.
Neck Back
If you notice a bump of fabric just behind the collar, you can improve your fit with this adjustment. It will move the collar back relatively to the shoulders.
