Place the tape measure around the entire neck. To ensure a comfortable fit take the neck measurement with one finger inside the tape measure, ensuring the tape is at the base of the neck where the neck and shoulders meet as seen in the diagram.
inches
Place the tape measure around the entire wrist. To ensure the right fit, take the wrist measurement with one finger inside the tape measure.
inches
Place the tape measure across the top of the shoulders and measure from one shoulder edge to the other, ensuring you take the curved contour over the top of the shoulders as seen in the diagram. (Note: Yoke = the section of the shirt that goes accross your shoulders and upper back)
inches
Place the tape measure at the top of the sleeve level with the edge of the shoulder, and then measure down the length of the sleeve. PLEASE NOTE: This measurement should extend past the top part of your hand (otherwise your sleeves we likely end up too short when you bend your arm). We recommend measuring all the way down to the tops of your knuckles.
inches
Place the tape measure at the top of the shirt level with the collar seam, and then measure the length of the shirt. This measurement will determine how long your shirt is, so simply select the required length.(We recommend the shirt length measurement be taken at point level with the base of the trouser crotch.)
inches
Place the tape measure around the body over the largest part of the chest area as shown in the diagram. To ensure the right fit, take the chest measurement with one finger inside the tape measure.
inches
Place the tape measure around the body over the smallest part of the waist area (true waist) as shown in the diagram. Assume a normal stance and place tape measure around the belly, located below the rib cage. For those with a big belly, the tape measure should be placed around the fullest part of the stomach. To ensure a comfortable fit, take the measurement with one finger inside the tape measure.
inches
Place the tape measure around the body at the point where you would like the shirt length to finish. To ensure a more comfortable fit, take the hip measurement with one finger inside the tape measure. Remember to use this as the reference point when entering your shirt length.
inches
Place the tape measure under your armpit and around the top of your arm. To ensure a comfortable fit take the armhole measurement with one finger inside the tape measure.
inches
Place the tape measure around your bicep over the largest part of your upper arm. To ensure a comfortable fit take the bicep measurement with one finger inside the tape measure.
inches
Place the tape measure at the crease in the top of the arm where the arm and chest meet. Measure the length across the chest to the equal and opposite point on the body. (There is no need to place the tape in the armpit, just on the crease where the relevant body parts meet)
inches
Place the tape measure at the crease in the top of the arm where the arm and back meet. Measure the length across the back to the equal and opposite point on the body. (There is no need to place the tape in the armpit, just on the crease where the relevant body parts meet)
