How to measure yourself for a Made-to-Measure Jacket

July 18, 2017

We've created a few graphics to help those of you who are measuring yourself at home for a custom-fitted jacket. Make sure you use a soft tape measure or a piece of string that you can mark and measure afterwards for the most accurate results. Also get a friend to help! We don't know about you but our bodies don't quite bend that way...

There are 3 measurements we need from you to create your Made to Measure Jacket. Chest, High Point Collar and Shoulders and Arms

Chest: Measure the circumference of your chest, just under your armpits. This will give us the measurement we need to get the fit of the body of your jacket right. 

Shoulders and Arms: Start measuring at the middle of the back of your neck where your neck meets your shoulders. Measure to the middle of your hand, lining up with inside of the base of your thumb.  This will give us the measurement we need to get the shoulders and arm length right for your jacket.


High Point Collar: Measure from the collar of your shirt to the top of your shoulder down to the length you want your jacket to be. If you're unsure how long you want your jacket to be a good reference point is the length of your favorite t shirt.

The High Point Collar measurement tells us where you want the bottom of the jacket to sit.  Traditionally there is a correlation with the high point collar and your sleeve length. Some people do want their jacket to be a little longer or shorter in relation to their sleeve length so we offer you the option to make this adjustment as well to allow you to get the exact fit you want.
