Tips on using this guide

  • Ask a friend or work colleague to measure you in a fitted t-shirt or shirt to ensure you are getting the most accurate body measurements.
  • Refer to the images of the male and female body below to check which areas you need to measure.
  • Take a note of your measurements and compare your body measurements to the measurements of the chart for the products you are buying.
  • If your body measurements cross over more than one size, select the larger size.

Women

Shoulder

Place the tape measure on one shoulder point where the seam of your shirt is and take it across to the other side. It’s best to measure your shoulders across the back.

Bust

Measure your bust at the fullest part, under your arms. You want to measure the chest keeping the tape measure slightly relaxed. Your shirt should fit firmly on the chest but not too snug. If the buttons are popping or pulling open then you know the shirt is a tad too small.

Waist

Your natural waist is just at your belly button, and usually the narrowest part. Measure your waist while exhaling so that you can ensure a comfortable fit even when sitting down.

Hips

Just above your your hip bone is where you need to take this measurement. This is an important measurement for shirts as you need to make sure that you have allowed enough room in this area at the final button. Take the measurement quite firmly and also cross-check against the measurement chart for our chino range as these tend to sit a bit lower than our natural waist.

Seat

The seat is important when buying skirts and trousers. Make sure you keep the tape firm and measure at the largest part of your seat, usually 30cm from your natural waist.

Sleeve Length

Place your tape measure at your shoulder seam (at the same point where you measured your shoulders) and then with your arm straight and by your side measure just past your wrist bone by about 2 cm. You want to allow enough room so that when you move your arm, the sleeve doesn’t ride up too high.

Trouser length

It’s best to take this measurement when you are wearing a pair of trousers or skirt. Place the tape measure at the waistband (keep in mind if the product is high waisted you will need to measure from the belly button and if low rise than measure from hip bone) and measure the right-hand side of your leg to the point where you want the garment to finish.

Men

Neck

Place the tape measure loosely around the base of the neck. Be sure to leave enough space at the front of the tape measure to place two fingers. When doing up your collar, you want to have about 2 cm of space.

Shoulder

Place the tape measure on one shoulder point where the seam of your shirt is and take it across to the other side. It’s best to measure your shoulders across the back.

Chest

Measure your chest at the fullest part, under your arms. You want to measure the chest keeping the tape measure slightly relaxed. Your shirt should fit firmly on the chest but not too snug. If the buttons are popping or pulling open then you know the shirt is a tad too small.

Waist

Your natural waist is just at your belly button, and usually the narrowest part. Measure your waist while exhaling so that you can ensure a comfortable fit even when sitting down.

Hips

Just above your your hip bone, about 5 cm from your waist is where you need to take this measurement. Take the measurement quite firmly and also cross-check against the measurement chart for trousers and chinos.

Seat

The seat is particularly important when buying trousers. Make sure you keep the tape firm and measure at the largest part of your seat, usually 25 cm from your natural waist. You want your trousers to fit firmly but not pull open at the pockets causing tension.

Sleeve length

Place your tape measure at your shoulder seam (at the same point where you measured your shoulders) and then with your arm straight and by your side, measure just past your wrist bone by about 2 cm. You want to allow enough room so that when you move your arm the sleeve doesn’t ride up too high.

Trouser length

It’s best to take this measurement when you are wearing a pair of trousers or skirt. Place the tape measure at the waistband (keep in mind if the product is high waisted you will need to measure from the belly button and if low rise than measure from the hip bone) and measure the right-hand side of your leg to the point where you want the garment to finish.
