Measurements From A Shirt

MEASUREMENT PROFILE:

The collar measurement is taken when the collar is spread flat. Measure from the center of the button to the outer edge of the button hole

Button the shirt and lay it flat. The chest measurement is taken from left seam to right seam just below the armpit.

The waist measurement is taken at the narrowest part of the waist. With the shirt laid flat, measure from left seam to right seam.

The bottom width measurement is taken at the base of the shirt. Lay the shirt flat and measure from left seam to right seam.

Spread the shirt on its front and measure from the middle base of the collar band to the very bottom of the shirt.

The shoulder width measurement is taken along the seam at the top of the shirt. Measure the distance between the sleeves from one sleeve seam to the other.

Lay a sleeve flat and measure along the outside edge of the sleeve from the top of the shoulder seam to the end of the cuff.

Lay a sleeve flat and measure along the outside edge of the sleeve from the top of the shoulder seam to the end of the sleeve.

The cuff measurement is taken from the center of the button to the outer edge of the button hole. The cuff needs to be spread on a flat surface.

The sleeve width measurement is taken at the junction of the sleeve with the rest of the shirt. Lay the shirt flat and measure across the armhole.

With the shirt laid flat measure across the sleeve at the level of the 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.
