Upper Body Measurement

$0.00

Neck

Measure around your neck over your Adam’s apple, following its natural curve.

Torso (Jacket Length)

Relax your arms. Measure from the highest point of your shoulder at the base of your neck straight down your torso, in line with your first thumb joint. Check the back and ensure that the measurement covers 2/3 of your rear end.

Chest

Run the tape measure around the fullest part of your chest, beneath your armpits and in line with your nipples. Ensure the tape measure is level all the way around. Keep your arms relaxed at your sides.

Front Chest Width

Start your tape measure at the point just below your underarm. Measure straight across your chest to the other side.

Stomach

Wrap the tape measure around your stomach in line with your belly button.

Seat

Wrap the tape measure around your hips at the widest point of your bum.

Shoulder Width

Identify the bones at the top edge of each shoulder. Measure from bone to bone over the natural curve of your back.

Back Width

Start your tape measure at the point just below your underarm. Measure straight across your back to the other side.

Sleeve Length

Relax your arms. Measure the length in two steps. Start from the bone at the top edge of your shoulder and measure to your elbow. Hold the tape measure there and continue measuring to your wrist, just below your wrist bone. As a rule of thumb, your suit sleeves should end half an inch above your shirt sleeves.

Bicep

Relax your arms at your sides. Wrap the tape measure around the widest point of your bicep in line with your nipples.
