Shirts & Jackets

For the Perfect Fitting Shirt or Jacket we need the following  measurements. It is best to have somebody help you and to take the measurements with a Tailors Tape Measure.

Take the measurement from the centre of  where the collar would be.

Just below the Adams Apple so it is snug but not to tight.

Dont allow your shirt collar to strangle you enough room to fit a finger between neck and tape.

Put your hands down by your side and relax.

The measuring tape should be put over your shirt, up under your arms and across your shoulder blades.

This should be the fullest part of your chest

The tape should be held firm but not tight.


Waist

This measurement should be taken with a shirt on and holding the tape firm against the body but not tight.

Your natural waist is usually the smaller measurement above your hips around the belly button.

Shirt Length

The length of your shirt can make you appear trendy or dorkish. Similar to a tie being too long or too short.

The shirt length can vary & it is more often a personal preference.

The tape measure should be held at the front of the body/shirt with the top of the tape  starting from the shoulder seam.

Measure the length you require.
