Complete Measurement Guide for a tailored suit

If you want to order a suit by email then you can fill the following measurement chart and we will see to it that you get the custom-made suit. Do not worry you can measure yourself within five minutes.

Things you need

A piece of paper and a pen.

Measuring tape.

A good fitting garment, i.e. a shirt and a pant. Refrain from wearing jeans as they do not offer the best size measurements.

Precautions to be followed while measuring yourself.

When measuring yourself, make sure that the tape is always held flat against the body. Curled up tapes do not provide the precise measurements. It should be held tightly that it does not droop and at the same time it should not be too tight that it restricts your normal movement.

All measurements should be taken to the nearest quarter (.25) inch.

Do not add or subtract any measurements. We will adjust the fit based on your selected preferences and the built of your body. We will give the allowances in the measurements accordingly.

If you have any more questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. Our experts will guide you to take the measurements.

Detailed Procedure to measure each part

Neck

Place the measuring tape around the base of your neck with one finger space between the tape and your neck.

CHEST

Place the measuring tape around largest part of your chest, as high as possible under the arms with two fingers space. Tape should be held straight but it should neither be too loose nor too tight.

STOMACH

Place measuring tape around the stomach with two fingers space. Measure the stomach over the part that has the longest circumference. Again the tape should not be held tightly.

HALF SLEEVE

Measure the length from the shoulder to the point where you want the cuff to hit.

FULL SLEEVE

Place measuring tape from the point where the shoulder seam joins the sleeve and guide the tape down along the arm to the point below the wrist. Do not forget to add 1.5 cm to your final measurement.

SHOULDER

Place the measuring tape from the point where the shoulder seam joins the sleeve of one hand to shoulder seam joining the sleeve of the other hand. Use that as the primary measurement and do not forget to add an allowance of 2-4 cm according to your normal standing posture and body build.

FRONT LENGTH

Place the measuring tape from the point where the shoulder seam joins the collar vertically and measure the length up to the point that you want it to be.

BICEPS

Place the measuring tape around the fullest part of the upper biceps with two fingers space in between the tape and your skin. Place the tape and your fingers parallel to the level of the biceps. Do not try to measure vertically as it can give wrong measurements.

OUT & INSEAM

Place the measuring tape on the top of the right waistband and measure the length to the floor. Finally reduce as much as 1-1.5 cm to get the final measurement.

WAIST

Place the measuring tape around your waistband while maintaining a slack of two fingers space. Do not leave the tape to droop or make it too tight. It should be free enough to rotate and tight enough that it does not fall down the position.

HIP

Place the measuring tape around your hips at the hipbone area. Measure the size of it while maintaining the space for two fingers. Tape should be parallel to your body. Do not curl or rotate the tape.

U-RISE

Place the measuring tape from the center of front rise, across the crotch and then measure the length up to the center of the back waistband. Make sure that you take the correct measurement, as it is a delicate area.
