Take your measurements from your body

To take your measurements from your body you need a friend to help you. Please follow these simple guidelines.

1. Shirt length

Lunghezza-camicia

This measurement is used to determine the lenght of your shirt. Take the measure using a tape measure parallel to your back, from the base of your neck to under your buttocks.

2. Shoulder width

Larghezza-spalle

Measure your shoulders from bone to bone, at the top edge of each of them, following your natural curve (see the image).

3. Sleeve length

LUNGHEZZA-MANICHE

Take the measurement starting from the bone on the top edge of your shoulder until just below your wrist bone. Be careful to keep your arm bent at 90 degrees.

4. Neck circumference

CIRCONFERENZA-COLLO

Measure around your neck. Place your finger between the tape measure and your neck, so that the collar won’t be too tight.

5. Chest width

ampiezza-torace

Measure around your chest, beneath your armpits, in line with your nipples. Try not to leave any empty space between your chest and the tape measure: this kind of measurement must be as precise as possible. The wearability of your shirt depends on the model you choose (classic fit, slim fit, regular fit).

6. Waist circumference

CIRCONFERENZA VITA

Wrap the measuring tape around your waist at widest point, inline with your belly button. Also in this case, please keep the measuring tape well leveled. The wearability will depend on the model you choose.

7. Hip circumference

Measure your waist at the height of the hips. Leave one finger between the tape and the body in order to avoid the rear puff.

8. Biceps circumference

To measure the circumference of your biceps, make a full fist and make sure the measuring tape is well adherent to your bicep but keeping a finger between your bicep and the measuring tape.

9. Forearm circumference

avambraccio

Even in this case, make the measuring tape adhering to the forearm but consider one finger between the tape and your body.

10. Wrist circumference

Wrap the measuring tape around your wrist, just below your wrist bone. Be careful the measuring tape is leveled.

Take your measurements from a shirt

If you want to take your measurements from a shirt that you already have, just lay it on a flat surface and, using a measuring tape, take the measurements following the instructions below.

1. Shirt length

Misure-camicia-1

Measure the back lenght of your shirt starting from the center of the back of the neck down the back to the bottom hem of the shirt.

3. Sleeve length

Lay your shirt down and measure the sleeve lenght starting from the shoulder seam to the wrist hem.

4. Neck circumference

Misure-camicia-1

Open and lay the shirt neck on the table. Measure the lenght between the button and the center of the buttonhole (see the image)

5. Chest width

Misure-camicia-4

Button your shirt and measure the lenght from right to left edge, 2 or 3 cm under the armipits

6. Waist circumference

Button your shirt and measure the lenght from left to right edge inline with the waist of the shirt (between the fourth and the fifth button).

8. Biceps circumference

Measure the circumference of your biceps starting from around 4 or 5 cm under the armpit seam,by sliding the measuring tape perpendicular to the sleeve.

9. Forearm circumference

Even in this case, measure the forearm circumference by sliding the measuring tape perpendicular to the sleeve.

Stretch the shirt cuff and measure the space between the button and the center of the buttonhole (see the image)

Test Blanket!

If you are not sure of the measurements you have taken, you can ask us for a test lap, that is a prototype of a shirt that you can try on before ordering the final made-to-measure shirt.
