HOW TO MEASURE FOR A DRESS SHIRT
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.
Have your partner wrap the measuring tape around your neck, just below your Adam’s apple. Make sure it sits on the skin with no gaps; it’s okay if the tape is slightly higher in the back than the front. The measurement should be taken with an index finger between your neck and the tape. It should be snug, but not tight. Take the measurement and add ½”.
Let’s do this in phases, starting with the arms relaxed. First, place the tape measure behind the center of the neck and run it over the top of the shoulder. Then hold the tape measure there and continue to the elbow. Hold again, then continue down to the wrist, approximately one inch past the wrist bone.
Sleeve length sizes are offered in two-inch increments. For example, if your sleeve length measures 33", you should choose sleeve length 32/33.
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.
