How to take measurements on another shirt

If you choose to take measurements on a shirt that suits you well, follow these tips:

 

Neck

The collar measurement simply corresponds to the shirt size itself, expressed in centimetres (eg. 40) or inches (eg. 17). If you are unable to read the shirt collar size, you can take your own neck measurement, instead.

Place the measuring tape around your neck, putting your index finger between the tape and your neck to give the desired amount of comfort.


Chest

Measure your chest by laying your shirt (with buttons fastened) on a flat surface and taking the measurement under the sleeve stitching, as shown in the photo.


Waist

Measure your waist by laying your shirt (with buttons fastened) on a flat surface and taking measurement from side to side at the halfway point of the shirt (between the fourth and the fifth button), as shown in the photo.


Sleeves

Measure your sleeve length by laying your shirt on a flat surface and taking measurement from the shoulder stitching to the end of the cuff (incl.).

 

 


Shoulders

Measurement of your shoulders is done by laying your shirt on a flat surface, at the level of the yoke horizontal stitching, and measuring from side to side between the sleeve stitching.

 

 

Length

The length is measured by laying your shirt on a flat surface and measuring along the back part from the collar stitching to the shirt tail.

 

 

Cuffs

For the cuff measurement, lay the shirt open on a flat surface, as if in preparation for ironing, and measure the fully opened cuff length.
