Making sure you’ve got the right menswear size

Before you buy menswear online – whether it’s just a formal shirt, a pair of shoes or a beach hat – it’s best to double-check your measurements or have someone else check them for you. This way, you’ll be able to check yourself against the measurements in our menswear size guide with confidence.

For the most accurate measurements to match up to our menswear size guide, measure around the following areas: collar, chest, waist, inside length and jacket length. Keep these measurements handy when you’re buying men’s clothing online and compare against our menswear size guide for the most precise results.

Inch measurements on the chart are derived from centimetre body measurements and are rounded to the nearest quarter inch.
