For a comfortable relaxing fit, do not pull the measuring tape too tight.
Neck (cm): Measure around your neck where the collar would normally rest. To ensure a comfortable fit, hold one finger between the tape and your neck.
Chest (inches): Keeping your arms relaxed, measure at the fullest part of your chest. Make sure the tape is right under your arm pits and runs over your shoulder blades.
High Waist (inches): Measure at your natural waist which is the narrowest point.
Low Waist (inches): Measure your waist at the fullest part of the belly.
Hip (inches): Measure at the widest point of your hips, this is where your butt is at its fullest
Across Back Shoulder (inches): Please note you will need a friend to help with this measurement or measure a shirt you already have that fits well. Measure from where the horizontal part of the shoulder meets the vertical part of the arm (shoulder point). Measure up over the curve of the shoulders and to the outside edge of the other shoulder.
Sleeve Length (inches): Please note you will need a friend to help with this measurement or measure a shirt you already have that fits well (from shoulder seam to cuff edge). Place one end of the measuring tape at your shoulder point and measure down your arm to one inch above the crease between your thumb and index finger.
Bicep (inches): Measure the arm of the hand that you write with. Measure around the flexed bicep at the fullest part.
Wrist (inches): Measure the wrist of the hand that you write with. Measure around the wrist bone and round up the nearest quarter inch.
Length (inches): Measure from the top of your collar bone (where it meets your neck) down your front to where you would like the shirt end to finish. This is usually 1 to 2 inches above your crotch.
Ordering a Custom Shirt
We offer a custom-made shirt service. What this means is that we make your shirt to order.
You can order our shirts in CharlieBoy set sizes 4 to 20. Alternatively, if you would like a custom fit order, we offer a “made to measure” service. You can submit your measurements via our website, and we will make an individual pattern for you which will then store for any future orders.
If you have any special requests like adjustments to the way our regular shirts fit, then we can do our best to accommodate them. Please use the ‘notes’ section in the order page to add any special requests.
