 Neck:

Required for shirts, jackets, waistcoats and overcoats


Take the start of the tape measure and place it in the middle of the neck, where you would like the top button of your shirt/blouse to be hold it in place with your finger. Next take the other end around back of the neck just under the hairline and bring it back round to the front to meet your finger. 




Front Width:

Required for shirts, jackets, waistcoats and overcoats


Measure across your front from the corner of one armpit to the other. The tape should be just slightly loose

This measurement defines the looseness of the jacket front.


Shoulder width:

Required for shirts, jackets, waistcoats and overcoats


Make sure you are wearing a shirt. Take a moment to notice how the shoulders fit when you stand straight with your arms down. Do they go straight down and look well fitted, or are they too loose or tight? Take the start of the tape measure and place it on your left shoulder, where you would like the seam of your jacket or shirt arm to start: this is usually at the end of your shoulder where you can feel the shoulder bone. Take it across your back, curving it so it goes up towards the bottom of your neck in the middle and place it on the same location on your right shoulder. Take the measurement at the point you want your jacket or shirt arm seam to start on your right arm.


Right Sleeve:

Required for shirts, jackets, waistcoats and overcoats


This is done the same way as the left sleeve. Although it sounds hard to believe, often people have slight variances in the length of their arms. If you find that this difference is any more than 1.5cm you may want to check your measurements again, and ensure you are standing straight with your shoulders level.



Shirt/Jacket Length:

Required for shirts, jackets and overcoats


Make sure you are wearing a shirt. Put the tape measure on either side, in between your neck and shoulders, where the stitching on your shirt meets. Let the other end hang down straight to the floor going over your pecs. Make sure you are standing up straight and take the measurement exactly where you would like your jacket/shirt to end.


Waistcoat Front:

Required for waistcoats


Make sure you are wearing a shirt. Put the tape measure on either side, in between your neck and shoulders, where the stitching on your shirt front and back meets. Let the other end hang down straight to the floor going over your pecs. Make sure you are standing up straight and take the measurement exactly where the tape measure meets your waist.


Trouser Waist:

Required for trousers


Take the tape measure and put it on the front of your body, at the level that you like to wear your trouser waist. Take the other end of the tape measure around your back and bring it around the front to meet the other end. Ensure that the tape measure is horizontal to the ground. You should be able to fit a finger in between the tape measure and your waist – make sure you leave some breathing room!


Crotch:

Required for trousers


Put the start of the tape measure at the level where you measure your trouser waist, in the middle of your body. Bring the other end under your crotch and place it on your back, at the level of your trouser waist. Ensure that you give yourself enough room for comfort!

 Knee :

Required for trousers


Measure around the width of your trousers knee. Measure the circumference over your trousers. Another way is to lay the trousers flat, with the front and back creased smooth. Measure across the width of trousers knee and double the measurement.

 Outside Leg:

Required for trousers


Do not wear any shoes. Put the end of the tape measure at the level at which you measured your trouser waist at the side of your body. Take the tape measure straight down your leg until it touches the ground and take the measurement at this point. Make sure that you keep the tape measure tight down your body, and stand up straight and tall to ensure that you get the correct measurement.

Chest:
Required for shirts, jackets, waistcoats and overcoats 

Take the start of the tape measure and place it in the middle of your chest, between your ribs at nipple level. Pull the other end under your armpit, horizontally around your back and through the other armpit and back to the start to meet the other end. The tape measure should be horizontal to the floor at nipple level. You should stand straight with your shoulders back and your chest inflated normally.


 


Back width:

Required for shirts, jackets, waistcoats and overcoats


Measure across your back from the corner of one armpit to the other. The tape should be just slightly loose


This measurement defines the looseness of the jacket back.



Left Sleeve:

Required for shirts, jackets, waistcoats and overcoats


Make sure you are wearing a suit jacket. Put the start of the tape measure where you would like your sleeves to start (the point where you measured the end of your shoulders). Let the other end of the tape measure hang down the middle of your arm. Make sure your arms are down to the side and you are standing straight. To help guide you, on shirts this is usually down to the first joint in your thumb. For jackets it is usually down to just above your knuckles.




Jacket Waist:

Required for shirts, jackets, waistcoats and overcoats


Take the start of the tape measure and place it in the middle of the front of your body, where you are biggest. This is generally the area just underneath the rib cage. Take the other end of the tape measure around your back and bring it back to the start to meet the other end. Put a finger between the tape measure and your body and take the measurement where the tape meets.



Different Styles:


A standard smart suit fit will have the bottom of the shirt/jacket around the level of the end of your thumb when your arms are by your sides. Adjust the length depending on the style you want to achieve.


Waistcoat Back:

Required for waistcoats


Put the start of the tape measure on the back of your neck, where you would usually wear your collar. Let the other end hang down the middle of your back. Make sure that you are standing straight and tall and take the measurement at the point where you would like the back of your waistcoat to end.


Seat:

Required for trousers


Take the tape measure and place it on your hips on one side. Take the other end of the tape measure around your buttocks where they are biggest and bring it to meet your finger. Ensure that the tape measure is horizontal to the ground. Put a finger between the tape measure and your body and take the measurement where the tape meets.


Thigh:

Required for trousers


Make sure you are wearing a smart pair of trousers and you have nothing in your pockets. Take the tape measure around the point at which your thighs are largest – usually where your legs meet your crotch and bring it back round to the front to meet the other end. Put a finger between the tape measure and your thigh and take the measurement where the tape meets.

 
Bottom :

Required for trousers


Measure around the width of your trousers bottom. Measure the circumference over your trousers. Another way is to lay the trousers flat, with the front and back creased smooth. Measure across the width of trousers bottom and double the measurement.
