MEASURING FOR THE CORRECT SIZE

COATS:
Chest– Measure around the fullest part of the chest keeping tape up under arms and across the shoulder blades. Add two inches to this measurement to get the coat size.

EXAMPLE: If your chest measurement comes out to be 40 inches then the coat size is 40. See the size chart below

SHIRTS:
Neck– Measure around the neck until the tape is comfortably snug. Record exact measurements including half sizes.

Sleeve– Measure from the center of the collar at the back of the neck, over the shoulder, the length of the arm to one inch beyond the wrist bone.

TROUSERS:
Waist– Measure around the waist directly over the shirt (not over slacks or coat) just above the hip bones and over the naval. Keep two fingers between the tape and your body. The number of inches is the waist measurement.



Table of Proportional Measurements
The chart below will help you in checking your measurements. Note that these are proportionate sizes and lengths relative to height and weight, for the “average built” man—and can be used as a reliable guide. Exceptions, of course, are people with full chest, small waist, extreme prominent seat, stouts or corpulents, etc. Note that each size is in the same arrangement according to height and weight and that many of the measurements change with each height and weight. If you are between any two weights shown on the chart, for a given height, the changes in chest measure can be figured as follows: If you are 5’8” tall and weigh 162 ½ lbs., your chest measure should be midway between 38” for 155 lbs. and 40” for 170 lbs., or 39”.

EXAMPLE: If you are 5ft. 10in. tall and weigh 190 lbs., you should measure 42 in. around the chest. If you get a 40 in. chest measurement, re-check your measure. Be sure to get the tape high up under arms over largest part of blades in back. Hold the tape sufficiently easy to slide your fingers under it.
