How to Measure for Men - Four Measurements Needed

  • 1. Chest: Wrap a measuring tape securely around your chest right below the nipples.
  • 2. Middle (fullest part): Wrap a tape around the fullest part of your stomach. Note that I did not say where you wear your belt!
  • 3. Length in center back: Have someone hold the tape from the base of your collar vertically down to where the bottom of the vest will be. This length varies with each person depending on the length desired.
  • 4. How tall are you? This gives me a general picture of the length needed.

  • 3. Length in center back: Have someone hold the tape from the base of your collar vertically down to where the bottom of the vest will be. This length varies with each person depending on the length desired.

EXTRA IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

It helps to talk to you, (or chat by email) as to other factors affecting the fit —-such as, "I don’t like a tight fit!" or, "I want this extra long to cover my —-." or, "Make this snug as I’m on a diet and am going to lose a few pounds.".

Communication is key to getting the desired finished product.
