Determine Suit Sizes

  • To Measure Chest
    You can just start off the process by measuring your arms, chest and shoulder blades. When you are conducting the measurement, you should always keep the tape parallel towards the floor. If you do it, the thickest part of the area of your chest can be determined. The second process which you can undertake is to go for an over arm measurement. In order to check the over arm measurement properly, you need to place the tape on the outside part of the arm. Once you have placed the tape on the arm, you can reduce seven inches from it. The corresponding measurement of the chest can then be received by you. After you have received this measurement, you need to compare it with the measurement of the chest.
  • To Measure Waist:
    The suit always comes in a pack and you also need to measure the waist. When you are determining suit sizes, there should be a difference of two to eight inches between the chest and waist. There are a variety of sizes which you can pick up. These range from standard, athletic and portly. When you are going for a standard cut suit, the actual difference between the chest and trouser measurement should be six inches. For example, if you are wearing a suit jacket which is 42 in size, you need to wear a trouser with 36 waists. When you are picking up the Athletic Suit, you should always understand that a difference of eight inches should be there. For example, if you are wearing a suit jacket which is 42 in size, you need to wear a trouser with 34 waists. The Portly Cut is another suit which you can pick up from the market. These suits portray a difference of 4 inches between the trouser and chest size. For example, if you are wearing a suit jacket which is 42 in size, you need to wear a trouser with 38 waists.

    For Men, measure around the fullest part of his seat. For Women, measure around the fullest part of her hips.
  • Measure Inseam:
    You should measure along the inner seam from the crotch to the bottom of pant leg.

  • Measure Height
    Stand against a wall (shoeless). Place a flat ruler across top of head to wall, measure from that point down to the floor. All cuts come is short, regular, long and in some cases extra-long. Generally, a man’s height will determine the specialty: 5’4″ and shorter = extra short; 5’5″ to 5′ 7″ = short; 5′ 8″ to 5′ 11″ = regular; 6′ to 6′ 2″ = long; 6′ 3″ and taller = extra long,
