Place the measuring tape around the neck at the area your collar would rest. Take a deep breath and relax and stand as naturally as possible. The measuring tape should rest comfortably around your neck. Place a finger between the skin and tape for added comfort.
Place the measuring tape around the largest part of your chest - usually at the nipple area. Lower your arms, take a deep breath and exhale to relax your shoulders. Make sure the tape is parallel to the ground.
Relax your shoulders. Find the bone at the top edge of your shoulder. Measure from bone to bone over the natural curvature of your back.
Relax your arms. Find the bone at the top edge of your shoulder. Measure down to the elbow area on the side of the arm (make sure to keep a straight line and not go towards the elbow bone). Hold the tape measure at this spot. Continue to measure down to right below the wrist bone. Make sure to continue a straight path to the back of the hand (opposite palms).
Relax your arms to the side and measure the widest part of your bicep. This is usually quite close to the armpit. Place a finger between and take the measurement. The tape should lie naturally without being too loose or tight.
Wrap the tape around your wrist at the wristbone area. Place a finger in between.
Relax your arms to the side. Place the tape at the highest point on your shoulder at the base of your neck. This is where the shoulder meets the neck. Run the tape down to your thumb knuckles. This usually is level with bottom of your crotch area (unless you have very long or short arms).
Wrap the measuring tape around the stomach in line with your belly button. Take a deep breath and exhale. Be natural and don't puff out your stomach. Make sure your tape is horizontal to the floor.
Wear your pants at the level you normally would with dress pants. Wrap your measuring tape above the waistband and take the measurement when you feel the perfect tension around your waist. This will be similar to how tight your waistband will be.
Empty your pockets and wrap your measuring tape around the widest part of your buttocks. Make sure that your tpe is parallel and level to the floor.
Wear your pants at the level you normally would with dress pants. Place the tape at the top of your waistband. Loop between the legs and measure to the top of the waistband. If your pants have a hanging crotch, pull hard enough to bring up the tape close to your seat (between your legs).
Wrap your tape around the largest part of your thigh. This is usually at the highest part of your leg where your buttock becomes a leg. Level your tape parallel to the ground.
Wrap your tape around the largest part of your calves. This is usually where your bump is on the back of your calf muscle. Level your tape parallel to the ground.
Remove your shoes and wear your pants where you would wear your dress pants. Start on the side of the pants at the top of the waistband and measure straight down to the floor.
For most men, we suggest our reknowned Slim Fit. Imagine a slimming fit while remaining comfortable to allow natural movements. Pants are fitted with a tapered ankle. However, if you're all about comfort and willing to live with looser fabric around the arms, stomach, hips, and thigh area, then we'd recommend a classic fit.
Most men fall into this category. When you wear an off-the-rack suit, no weird wrinkles or lines appear around the shoulder pads.
Men who work out tend to have these shoulders due to trap muscles. When you wear an off-the-rack suit, the shoulder pads do not run straight but run an uneven path down to the end of the shoulders.
Square shoulders are easy to spot. When you wear an off-the-rack suit, there is an accumulation of fabric behind the neck.
When you wear an off-the rack suit, the back of the collar lies perfectly on the back of your neck.
