Measuring Your Favorite Fitting Shirt

SHIRT COLLAR

Lay the tape measure across the base of the shirt collar, from the center of the button to the center of the buttonhole on the other side.

SHIRT WAIST

Lay the tape measure across the middle of the shirt, just above the 7th button from the top of the shirt.

SHIRT CHEST

Lay the tape measure across the chest just under the sleeves. 

SHIRT YOKE

Lay the tape measure across the yoke of the shirt measuring between the seams.

SHIRT CUFF

Lay the tape measure across the open cuff of the shirt measuring between the buttonhole edge of the cuff to the middle of the button.

SHIRT SLEEVES

Lay the tape measure on the yoke, starting in the center and measuring over to the top seam on the sleeves.  This is the half yoke.  Then lay the tape (in this case with the 9) at the top of the sleeve and measure to the bottom of the cuff on the sleeve.  Measure both sleeves to ensure they are the same length.
