Custom Measurements Guide
A custom-tailored suit is a luxury all gentlemen should treat themselves to! We do recommend being measured by a tailor, alternatively, many customers do employ the help of a friend. Just make sure to follow our guide that is specific to our suits, whichever route you take.
A few important notes before you begin:
- Measurements should be taken snug but not tight.
- In all instances, make sure that the tape measure is level across or around the body.
- Do not add extra inches for comfort. Our highly skilled tailors already factor in for comfort. Submit all measurements exactly as taken for a perfect fit.
- Submit all measurements in inches.
|1. Neck - Measure around the width of the base of the neck where your shirt collar would sit.|
|2. Shoulder - Measure from the end of the left shoulder to the end of the right shoulder.This measurement should be equal to the desired width of the jacket’s shoulders.|
|3. Sleeve - Measure from where the seams on the shoulder meet to where you want your sleeve to end. The measurement submitted will be your sleeve length. We recommend the jacket sleeve length should come to the thumb joint (located at the wrist joint).|
4. Bicep - Measure around the bicep.
|5. Wrist - Measure around the wrist.|
|6. Chest - Measure around the widest part of the chest while standing relaxed and breathing normally. Make sure that your tape measure is level around the body and do not overextend the chest.|
|7. Stomach - Measure around the belly over the navel.|
8. Waist - Measure 4 fingers below the navel. Don't be surprised if this differs greatly from your normal trousers waist size.
|9. Hip - Measure around the hip and buttocks.|
10. Jacket Length - Measure vertically down the front of the body, from the location of the shoulder seam to the 2nd knuckle of the thumb of the relaxed arm, while standing in an upright but relaxed position.
11. Trouser Length - Measure the trousers outseam from the waist, down the side of the leg to the floor.
|12. Thigh - Measure around the width of the thigh.|
13. Inseam - Measure an already well fitting pair of trousers from the crotch seam down to the end of the leg hem.
