Measurement Instructions

How to "do it yourself" and get your tux rental measurements from home.

 measurement step 1

NECK MEASUREMENT

Place the measuring tape around your neck at the level the collar would be buttoned. Place two fingers between your neck and the tape. The tape should be snug but move easily.

 measurement step 2

CHEST MEASUREMENT

Wrap the measuring tape around the broadest part of your chest; under your arms. Place two fingers between your body and the tape. The tape should be snug but move easily.

 measurement step 3

SHIRT SLEEVE MEASUREMENT

Keep your arms down at your side and look straight ahead when measuring your sleeve. Place the start of the measuring tape at the base of your neck, on the middle of your spine. Move the tape over the top of your shoulder and then down your arm one-inch below your wrist.

 measurement step 4

WAIST MEASUREMENT

Place the measuring tape around your waist at the level you would normally wear your pants. (Note: Formal pants are generally worn around the navel). The tape should be snug but move easily.

 measurement step 5

PANT LENGTH MEASUREMENT (Outseam)

Look straight ahead; begin measuring at the side of your waistband. From the top of the pants, extend the tape down your leg until you reach the sole of your shoe.
