How to Measure for Custom Made Items

Please make all your measurements in centimeters, rounded to nearest quarter centimeter (1/4, 1/2, 3/4)

  • While the individual measurements associated with the suit are also important to get the right fit, your height and weight can help you estimate your fit.
  • This is especially important if you’re going to have your suit tailored, because height and weight helps tailors determine your “drop” of the suit, which is the difference between the size of the pants and jacket.

Neck Size
Wrap your tape measure around the base of your neck, just above your collarbone. The tape should feel snug but not tight. Then, record the measurement.

Sleeve Length
Place one end of the measuring tape at the base of the center of the back of the neck. Run the measuring tape over your shoulder, and let it hang down to your hand. Measure to the center of the meaty part of your palm. Do not adjust for shrinkage.

Shoulder Width 
Start the end of the tape on the outside edge of the shoulder where you want the yoke of the shirt to start. This is where the horizontal part of the shoulder meets the vertical part of the arm. Measure up over the curve of the shoulders and to outside edge of the other shoulder.

Chest
Wrap the tape measure around the widest part of your chest and back. This is the area right under your arms.

Waist
Measure around your waistline, which is the narrowest part of your waist at the height of your belly button.

Wear a shirt while measuring so your jacket will fit over it. Choose the type of shirt that you plan on wearing under your costume. This will help you avoid getting a jacket that’s too snug.
