HOW TO MEASURE AND DETERMINE YOUR CORRECT SIZE FOR CUSTOM CLOTHING A 2-STEP PROCESS
The most important thing for any good fit is having the right measurements.
Our size charts offer basic guidelines for fitting while our garment measurements are specific to that product.
Size Charts apply to your actual body measurements.
Fit Guides explain how custom garments will fit.
STEP 1 - WHAT IS YOUR SIZE?
Most custom clothing manufacturers use different sizing specifications based on their target audience. The custom clothing products on our web site have product specific size charts based on individual brands. A size chart generally refers to the "size" you might want based on your actual body measurements. You should use this as a general guideline because you might want a tighter or looser fit. (See Step 2 to determine your best fit)
You can get your accurate body measurements using the following steps:
- Use a cloth tape measure and keep the tape taut but not stretched
- Measure your body over properly fitting undergarments while standing tall and without shoes
- Measure the areas needed such as chest, neck, waist, hips, sleeve, inseam and head based upon the guidelines below
Chest/Bust - With arms down at sides, measure around the upper body, under arms and over the fullest part of the chest/bust.
Neck - Measure around the base of the neck, inserting a finger or two between the tape and neck for comfort. If you have a shirt with a collar that fits you well, lay the collar flat and measure from the center of the collar button to the far end of the buttonhole. The number of inches will be your size.
Sleeve - Place hand on hip. Start at the center of the back of the neck and measure across the shoulder, to the elbow, and then down to the wrist. The number of inches will be your size.
Waist - Measure around your waist, over a shirt (not pants) at the height you normally wear your pants. Keep one finger between the tape and body. If you have a favorite pair of pants/shorts that fit you best, lay them flat, measure across the waistband and double the measurement.
Inseam - Stand in a comfortable position wearing shoes with a standard heel. Measure the leg from the underside of the crotch (known as the top inseam point) to the bottom side of the ankle (the lowest inseam point). This measurement will be your inseam. If you have a pair of pants that fits well and is the desired length, measure from the crotch seam to the hem.
Head (Hats and Caps) - Measure the largest part of the head, with the tape above your brow. Convert this to a hat size using the chart below.

Average Measurement - The below measurements are based on average body measurements. Should your measurement fall between sizes, size up or down based on your preference of whether you prefer more or less compression. Waist measurements allow for most hip and inseam variations. Leggings fabrics accommodate a wide variety of body types within any given size, hence the range of measurements within that size.
Waist Circumference - To find your best fit, measure the smallest area of your waist.
STEP 2 - WHAT IS YOUR BEST FIT?
Using garment dimensions is the best way to determine how an item will fit you. Different activities will often dictate your personal fit preference - swinging a golf club probably requires a looser fit than sitting at a concert. The garment dimensions listed are the actual size of the garment laid out flat. If you have a garment that you like the way it fits, you can measure it based on the steps below and then determine what the best size to order will be.
- Lay the garment flat
Measure the following:
- Chest - Measure across the chest one inch below armhole when laid flat
- Body Length - Measure from the high point of the shoulder from the front to the hem
- Sleeve Length - Start at center of neck and measure down shoulder, down sleeve to hem
- Double these measurements to the circumference
- Compare the garment measurements to your actual body measurements (done in step 1) and allow for movement
- Once you have your measurements, ignore the "size" chart and look for this "measurement" in the garment dimensions section of the Size & Fit tab on the products page
- Note: Most manufacturers accept a tolerance of + or - 1" from their published specs
- When in doubt, if you fall between sizes, order a size up
