How to Measure your Size

1 How to measure your collar -

For me, this is really important if you need to get the right shirt size.

There is nothing worse than having a poor fitting shirt with a tie that is strangling you all day. Simply measure around the base of your neck and ensure you take the correct measurement.

2 How to measure your sleeve -

Always make sure your arm is fully stretched out before taking this measurement. Measure from the collar, down the shoulders and along the outer side of your arm.

3 How to measure your chest -

Chest measurements are fairly easy to take as long as you keep the tape measure tightened around the chest.

So the best way to get an accurate measurement is to measure around the fullest part of the chest. Feed the measuring tape under your arms and make sure you go all the way around to the other side.

4 How to measure your waist -

This is probably the easiest to measure as its simply the measurement around your natural waistline.

5 How to measure your inside Leg -

This has been the butt of jokes for years but its really simple to take the right measurement. Measure from the top of the inside leg at your crotch to your ankle bone.

6 How to measure your outside Leg -

This is another really simple measurement to take. Measure from your natural waistline to the hem, that it!

7 How to measure your centre back length -

This will definitely need some help from a partner or friend. Measure from the centre of the seam to the hem.
