Tips for taking measurements:
To ensure an accurate measure and a comfortable fit, please have someone else measure you.
Stand straight, but relaxed with your heels together and your arms at your sides. Do not suck in the stomach or inflate the chest.
The measuring tape should be held firmly allowing enough room for an index finger to fit between the tape and the body. The tape should be kept level.
Measurements can be taken in centimeters or inches, but be consistent to avoid confusion.
For a shirt or jacket fit you will need the measurements: A B C E F H
For trouser fit you will need the measurements:
C D G I J
