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.

If you’re tall, we can accommodate your long arms with sleeve lengths up to 39", extra long jackets and extra long ties. We offer shoes up to size 16.

Style tips for Big & Tall men

Classic tones are your friend. Big and/or tall guys can stand out because of their size, and that’s not always a good thing. Choosing classic colors like black, gray, or navy is best. Add color in accent items rather than in main wardrobe pieces like jackets or trousers. Avoid large-scale patterns like plaids or window panes.

The proper fit is key. A garment that fits well can be slimming and flattering. Clothes that are fit too tight/small make you look like you need to lose a few pounds. It may seem like clothes that are too big are hiding your frame, but they make you look even bigger.
