|There is a common misconception that your tuxedo size is different than your suit size. However, this is NOT true at all. If you have a well fitting suit, we recommend ordering the same size for your tuxedo. For those of you that do not know your measurements, we have included a measurement guide below. HOWEVER, we do not recommend measuring yourself. We only suggest using this as a last resort. You are much better off going to a department store to try on a few suit or sport jackets to see which size fits you best. You can also give us a call to help with measurements. Our customer service reps are highly trained in this area, and can offer you a lot of assistance in choosing your correct sizes. Please don't hesitate to call us.|
1. To Measure Height:
Stand against a wall (shoeless). Place a flat ruler across top of head to wall. measure from that point down to the floor.
The following guide will show you the appropriate length for your jacket.
5'4" to 5'7" = Short
5'7 ½" to 5'11" = Regular
5'11 ½" to 6'2 ½" = Long
6'3" + Up = Extra Long
2. To Measure Chest:
Bring tape measure around the widest part of your chest, under your arms, completely around your torso. The average man will have a 6 inch difference between chest size and waist size (i.e. 44 chest will have 38 waist).
3. To measure Waist:
Waist measurement should be no different than your normal waist size when you purchase a pair of trousers. However, if you would like to measure, measure around the smallest part of the natural waist.
4. To Measure Seat or Hips (Optional):
For Men, measure around the fullest part of his seat. For Women, measure around the fullest part of her hips.
5. To Measure Inseam:
Measure along the inner seam from the crotch to the bottom of pant leg
6. To Measure Sleeve:
Start measurement in the middle of your back, just under your neck, over your shoulder, around your bent elbow, to your wrist bone. Please note that your tuxedo shirt size should be no different than any other well fitting dress shirt that you have in your closet.
