Measuring tips

First of all, stand barefoot in your underwear. For best results take your measurements a few times, or have someone else  measure you.Take care not to hold the measuring tape too loosely or to pull it too taut.

Collar
Measure around the base of your neck where your collar would normally sit.

Chest
Measure around your chest at its broadest and fullest part, but avoid placing the tape too high under your arms.

Waist
Measure around your natural waistline, at the point your waistband or belt usually sits.

Inside leg
Measure from the top of your inside leg at the crotch to the floor.

Jacket length
Measure from the centre of your neck, around about the 4th vertebrae, to where the hemline should be around your bottom.

Jackets and coats
Because these are normally worn over other clothing, you'll find we've been more generous with the sizing, so you shouldn't need to go up a size to allow for layering.

Lengths
Garment lengths can differ from style to style, so for trousers, refer to the individual product description. These lengths are approximate.

How garments are sized

The sizing on the garment label is based on the average body, with a height of 5'10" - so "to fit size x " is a net body measurement.

Patterns for clothing are produced 1% - 2% over body measurements, depending on the garment type, to account for a variety of body shapes and/or desired fashion fit for that type of garment, such as close tailored or loose relaxed fitting.

Styling of trousers for instance, is no longer dependent on them being worn high on the natural waistline these days, but worn lower, just above the hip. As that's a wider part of the body, the stated waist measurement "to fit size 38" will actually be larger than 38".
