Men Measurements

How to do Measure - Men
Man's measurement is the same as his size. Where small, medium, large, etc. are concerned, the best way to ensure proper fit is to know your measurements.
What you'll need -- A cloth tape measure and a full-length mirror. For best results take body measurements undressed or in lightweight clothing. Keep your arms at your side and have a friend take the measurements. When measuring, keep the tape measure snug, but not tight.

Neck size
Measure around the base of the neck.
Easier method: Take a shirt that fits great and measure from the center of the button to the far end of the button hole. Inches = Size (If it's 17 1/2 inches, you're a 17 1/2 neck) Round up. For example, if you measure 17 1/4, round up to 17 1/2.
Sleeve measure
Bend your elbow and put your hand on your hip. Have someone measure from middle of back of your neck, around shoulder and elbow to wrist bone.
Easier method: Take a shirt that fits and fold at the elbow 90 degrees and measure from middle back of collar to cuff.
Chest size
Take measurements under armpits, around fullest part of chest and shoulder blades.

Please note that throughout all our sizing charts, the measurements you will see are based on actual body measurements, not garment measurements.
