In order to get the type of fit that you like, we would ask you to indicate your preferred fit style below. Our tailors would then add the appropriate allowances to improve the fit of the finished jacket.
1- The Regular/Classic fit adds 3-5 inches of fullness to chest, waist and hip measures (for e.g. if the actual chest measurement is 42 inches then choosing the classic fit would give a chest of 45-47 inches for the finished suit jacket).
2- Slim fit reduces this allowance to 2-3 inches.>
3- The Relaxed fit option increases it to 5-7 inches.
Measure the circumference of your neck at the height where your collar would sit. If you wish to be sure you of the height you can wear a shirt that fits you well.
Wearing a typical bra for you (or the bra you intend to wear if its specific), measure the circumference of your bust at its fullest point. Do not pull the tape measure tight and try to relax your arms by your sides. The value should basically be your bra size (i.e 36DD) but always measure never assume.
How to Measure:Measure around your waist roughly at the level of your navel or right below your bottom ribs, whichever is larger. As a guide this measurement should be where you are widest. Don't keep the measuring tape to be higher in the front or back, it must be level all the way around and don't breathe in!
This measurement is a body measurement and there will be an allowance added to it to make your jacket, the allowance will be added according to the fit that you chose.
Measure around the fullest part of your hips AND seat (tailor term for bum). Stand feet hip width apart, making sure your pockets are empty and the tape is level and untwisted. You should just barely feel the tape against your body, do not pull it too tight.
Measure across the top of the back from the tip of one shoulder to the other, its not necessarily a straight line but rather follow your natural curvature of the upper back. If you struggle to identify the tip of the shoulder and have a shirt / jacket that fits well, you can simply measure between the shoulder seams.
With your arm relaxed at your side, measure from where shoulder seam meets the crown down to your desired length, generally at the base of the thumb where it meets your wrist.
Flex your arm to 90 degrees to find the widest point of your bicep then relax your arm and measure the circumference of at its widest point.
Measure around the circumference of your wrist at the point where the jacket sleeve would end, keep the tape measure snug but not tight.
WELL DONE! THAT’S THE JACKET FINISHED, NOW ONTO THE TROUSERS.
In order to get the type of fit that you like, we would ask you to indicate your preferred fit style below. Our tailors would then add the appropriate allowances to improve the fit of the finished trousers.
Classic fit trousers typically sits at your natural waist. It is eased through the seat, hips and thigh giving it about 1 1/2-inch more room than the Straight Fit. The slightly tapered leg is finished with a 18-19-inch leg opening.
Straight cut trousers typically sit at your natural waist and are slim through the seat and thighs, a fit that is not too loose, not too tight and finished with a leg opening of 17-18-inches.
Slim fit trousers typically sits slightly below the waist and has a short rise. It cut slim through the seat, thigh, and leg shape to fit close to the body. This very modern fit is finished off with a leg opening of 15-16-inches.
Bootcut trousers often sit at your natural waist or just below it. From the knee to the ankle, these trousers become slightly wider or “flare” out and finished with a leg opening of 19-20-inches.
Measure around your waist at the height where you would like to wear your trousers, not your natural waist. Do not pull the tape measure too tight. If you are not sure and have an existing pair of trousers that fit as you would like, wear them, and measure around the waist band where they sit.
Measure vertically from the top of where you want the trouser waist to sit down along the side pant seam, to the desired trouser length. This is typically around 1-2″ from the floor, but will vary depending on your style. If you are not sure you can wear a pair of trousers you know fit you well, and/or wear shoes similar to those you intend to wear with the suit.
Measure the circumference of your thigh at its widest point, this is usually near the top of the inseam but may be slightly lower depending on your physique.
Similar to the previous measurement, but take the circumference of your knee. We do not typically need these last two measurements, so only include them if you feel these are problem areas for you in traditional fitting trousers.
Measure from the front of your waistband, under your crotch, to the back your waistband. Remember to measure from where you would like your pants to sit.
