How to Measure
Measure a shirt with a collar that fits you well. Open the shirt and lay the collar flat. Measure from the center of the collar button to the far end of the button hole. The measurement in inches is your collar size. (Alternatively, measure around the base of your neck, inserting a finger or two between the tape and your neck to allow for comfort.)
With arms relaxed at your sides, measure around your chest at the armpits, over the highest part of your chest and shoulder blades, keeping the tape parallel to the floor.
Measure around your chest including the fullest part of your arms at the highest point of your shoulder blades, keeping the tape parallel to the floor. If this measurement is 7 or more inches larger than your chest measurement, order the next larger size sportcoat to avoid binding in the upper arm and shoulder area.
Stand in stocking feet with your feet slightly apart and your back to a wall. Measure from the floor to the top of your head.
Bend your elbow 90 degrees and place your hand on your hip. Hold the tape at the center back of your neck. With a friend's help, measure across your shoulder to your elbow, and down to your wrist. The total length in inches is your sleeve length.
Regular, Tall, Short or Big?
Regular describes a well-proportioned body 5'8" − 6'0" tall, with hips and chest of equal girth.
Tall describes a body 6'1" − 6'3" tall, with a long torso or sleeve length. Body length of shirts is 2" longer than Regular. Coat sleeve and body length is 1-1/2" longer.
Closer-to-the-body fit throughout. Shirts are tapered with a 3 3/4" drop from chest to waist.
Short describes a body of 5'3" − 5'7", with a short torso or sleeve length. The garment body is 2" shorter and sleeves are 1 1/2" shorter than Regular.
Big describes a body of 5'8" − 6'0" with a less athletic profile. Pockets and other details increase in size for a pleasing proportion.
