CUSTOM SHIRT MEASUREMENT GUIDE

The best custom shirts are made in America.  We'll show you.
Refer to this guide we've put together when measuring yourself for our custom shirting.
DO NOT MAKE ALLOWANCE FOR SHRINKAGE. Yes, like laundry.

COLLAR
Place the measuring tape about the neck in line with the neckband of the shirt.
Measure so the tape is snug, but not tight to get the skin measurement.  Add 1/2" for ease.
Collars are sized in 1/4 inch increments.

CHEST
Stand straight but relaxed.  With arms at sides, place the tape measure around the chest, high under the arms
and over the shoulder blades. The chest measurements are sized in full inch increments. Use your best
judgement on whether to size up or down.

WAIST
The shirt waist is located below the rib cage, above the trouser waist. Take the waist measurement
at the fullest part of the waist, taking into account any lumps, bumps, or humps.
Waist measurements are sized in 1/2 or full inch increments.

HIPS
Measure around the hip bone area. Tape should be snug and level.
Hip measurements are sized in 1/2 or full inch increments.

LENGTH
Place the tape at the highest part of the shirt, below the ear, generally this is where the collar band
and the yoke meet.  Measure straight down to the crotch.  
Shirts are designed to be tucked in and stay tucked.

YOKE
The tape measure should be placed on top of the shoulders over the prominent neck bone.
The measurement should be taken from shoulder point to shoulder point with the tape placed
over the neck bone at the base of the shirt collar. 
Do not allow the tape to drop across the shoulders.
Yoke is sized in 1/4 inch increments.

SLEEVE
Place the tape at the center if the yoke under the back collar. Measure to the shoulder then down to the wrist.
Add 1" for sleeve measurement.  Sleeves are sized in 1/4 inch increments.
FUN FACT: Custom shirt sleeves are generally a little bit longer than
what you may be used to.  This is because most shirts to not have a proper fitting cuff.
When the cuff of a shirt fits correctly, the sleeve will not fall below the wrist.

CUFFS
Measure around the wrist bone to determine the cuff size.
