How to measure yourself correctly?

 

Neck size.
Use the tape to measure around the base of your neck, where it meets your shoulders. Put a finger between your neck and the tape measure for a more loose fit collar.

Shoulders. Back (Standard) width.
Think of a line going from your armpit straight upwards to your shoulder. Measure between those two points and hold the tape measure straight. If you are wearing a dress shirt that fits your upper body correctly, you can use it as a guide. The shoulder seams on the back of your shirt will usually match up with your actual shoulder points.

Chest.
The chest measurement is taken as a circumference measurement around your chest at the widest point. Stand in a relaxed posture and breathe out.

Upper arm.
Measure the circumference around the thickest part of your upper arm, usually at the bicep.

Sleeve length.
Measure the length from the top stitching on the shoulder to the bottom of the wrist. Aim for hitting your wrist bone with the measuring tape. Be careful not to measure too high above the wrist, or the dress shirt’s sleeves will come to be too short.

Waist.
The waist measurement is taken as a circumference measurement around your waist just above your belly button. Stand in a relaxed posture and breathe out.

Low waist.
Measure around your waist, slightly below your natural waist, where you normally wear your trousers.

Hips.
Measure the circumference around your hips at the widest point. This will usually be roughly just above the crotch line.

Inseam.
Make sure you are in a pair of pants that fit you well and also bare foot. Then take the measurement starting from the crotch seam down the inside of the pant leg to the desired end of the pants.
