How To Take Your Measurements

Finding your fit is easy- just find a soft tape measure and get to work!

Simply measure around the base of your neck, or measure the collar on your favorite shirt (from the center of the collar button to the far end of the button hole). The measurement in inches is your collar size.

If you intend to wear the shirt with a tie, the size you select should closely match your exact collar measurement. However, a shirt to be worn without a tie may be purchased slightly larger for comfort and a more casual look.

Relax your arms at your sides. Measure around the fullest part of your chest, with the tape measure at the armpits. This is your chest size.

When buying a jacket or sports coat, also measure around your chest and arms (at the highest point of your shoulder blades). This is your overarm measurement. Subtract your chest measurement from your overarm measurement. If the difference is 7 or more inches, we recommend ordering one size larger for comfort and a better fit in the upper arms and shoulders.

Bend your elbow 90 degrees and place your hand on your hip. Hold the tape at the center back of your neck. Measure across your shoulder to your elbow, and down to your wrist. The total length in inches is your sleeve length.

Measure loosely around your natural waistline. You should not hold the tape measure tightly, remember you’ll want to eat and breathe in your pants!

For belts, order a size 1-2 inches larger than your actual waist size.

Find a pair of pants that fit well (see our Feature Article for tips). Measure from the crotch seam (where all the fabric meets), down the pant leg all the way to the bottom. This is your inseam.

Rise refers to the distance between the top of a trouser’s waistband and the crotch (the top of the trouser leg’s inseam). You can measure along the seam of your favorite pair of pants.

FORtheFIT.com offers pants in regular and short rises. If your regular pants fit fine, continue to order a regular rise. However if they feel or look too baggy or you are 5’7″ tall or less, you may want to consider pants that offer a “short” rise.
