Take the measures can be rather complicated for those who never did. Follow our tips to get your new shirt without errors.

Take a shirt wearing which you already feel comfortable in the different movements of each day.

COLLAR MEASUREMENT

Open the collar of the shirt, spread it and measure from the button until the middle of the button-hole from the other side.

 MEASUREMENT OF THE SHOULDERS

Turn the shirt on the rear side and measure the distance between the seam of a sleeve and the other.

 MEASUREMENT OF THE CHEST

Extend well the shirt while buttoned, taking care that there are no folds on the back and measure the distance between the points immediately below the two sleeves.

MEASUREMENT OF THE WAIST

Measure horizontally the shirt at the tightest point.

MEASUREMENT OF THE LENGHT

Turn the shirt on the back and take the distance between the seam of the neck up to the lower edge of the shirt.
