HOW TO MEASURE FOR A PAIR OF PANTS
To get accurate measurements, you will need a soft measuring tape and a partner to help. Of course, you can always stop in to any Men’s Wearhouse and one of our Expert Stylists will be happy to take your measurements.
1) Waist Measurement
Wrap the tape measure around your waist, near your navel. Do not measure over the waistband or belt of your pants. Make sure the tape is level across the front, back and sides. The tape measure should be snug, but not tight. For a proper fit,
dress slacks are worn above the hipbone on the natural waist, about the height of the navel.
2) Inseam Measurement
It’s possible to get your inseam measurement using a pair of pants you own that fit you well. Fold the pants in half vertically and lay them on a flat surface. Place the end of the tape on the crotch seam and stretch it to the bottom of
the hem. Make sure the pants you use to measure closely matches your selected suit fit. For example, if you are looking for slimmer fitting pants be sure you wear an equally slim fit when measuring.
For body measurement, stand upright
while your partner measures from the crotch seam to where you would like the hem to fall. To find the most accurate inseam measurement, wear the shoes you intend to pair with the pants. We recommend that the pants skim the forefoot (or top)
of your shoe, but feel free to adjust the length if you prefer a shorter or longer hem.
These measurements are a guide to help choose the size that will fit you best. Your exact size may vary depending on the designer label you choose.
