Every item in our store should have at least two measurements listed - the chest and the length. All measurements are taken with the garment laying flat and unstretched.
Chest: The chest measures the distance from armpit to armpit. It is usually the widest part of the shirt.
Length: The length measures the distance from the highest point of the shoulder to the hemline (bottom).
Sleeve: The sleeve should be measured from the shoulder seam to the cuff or sleeve hem.
Modern Size Equivalent
For ease of reference, we have also translated our hand measurements into a modern size for each item. These are based on traditional men's sizes.
