NOTE: Each product has a sizing chart link in the description on its product order page. Please refer to this link when looking up measurements for a certain product as each product has its own sizing chart. This page outlines the guidelines that should be followed to determine your correct size on that chart.


Measuring Guidelines : General Information

Measuring: Taking correct measurements is the best thing. This is especially true in respect to waist measurements for pants. Pants come in many different brands, and sizes and fits will vary between them. Therefore, do take your actual waist measurement-- we strongly recommend for you not to calculate your size based on any existing pants you already wear. Ensuring that you have the right size will benefit you our customer by cutting out the extra time and cost involved with return shippping.


Tips:


    – DO NOT adjust the measurement to allow for shrinkage. Potential shrinkage has already been figured into sizing the garment.

    – DO order the larger size if measurements fall between two sizes (unless you prefer your uniforms to fit a little tighter).


Don't second guess the sizes shown in this reference guide. Sizes on the size/conversion charts in this guide are based on actual body measurements in inches.
Never simply base your size on a size you already wear. Uniform sizes do not necessarily relate to retail sizes.
Waist measurements! Don't “suck it in” to cheat the actual measurement. If you do, you'll pay for it later with a fit that's probably too snug. Just stand up straight and relaxed.



Measuring Guidelines : Measuring Men


A. Neck Size: Standing at his side, hold the tape snugly around his neck. The number of inches shown is his neck size.

B. Sleeve Length: Standing at his back, have him hold up one arm chest high and touch his nose. Measure from the bottom center back of neck (the round bone at the top of his spine), down the arm across the elbow to the far end of the wristbone. The number of inches shown is his sleeve length.

C. Chest Size: Standing in front, measure around the fullest part of his chest, under the arms and around the shoulder blades. The number of inches shown is his chest size.

D. Waist Size: Standing in front, measure around his natural waistline, just above the hipbones. The number of inches shown is his waist size.

E. Inseam: You stand in front. Have him stand with both feet flat on the ground with legs straight and slightly apart. Have him hold one end of the tape measure at the base of his crotch seam. You straighten the tape down the inside of his leg to the top of his shoe. The number of inches shown is his inseam length. Remember–this measurement will be more accurate if he is wearing the actual shoes to be worn with the uniform.



Measuring Guidelines : Measuring Women


A. Bust: Standing to her side and holding tape firmly under one arm, measure around the shoulder blades, under arms and around the fullest part of her bust. She should keep her arms to her sides as much as possible - it will affect the measurement if they are raised too high. The number of inches shown is her bust size.

B. Waist: Standing to her side, measure around her natural waistline. The number of inches shown is her waist size.

C. Seat (hips): Standing to her side, measure around the fullest part of her hips. Start 7 to 8 inches below the natural waistline. If the tape can't be moved up and down, it's not around the fullest part. The number of inches shown is her seat (or hip) measurement.

D. Inseam: You stand in front. Have her stand with both feet flat on the ground with legs straight and slightly apart. Have her hold one end of the tape measure at the base of her crotch seam. You straighten the tape down the inside of her leg to the top of her shoe. The number of inches shown is her inseam length. Remember - this measurement will be more accurate if she is wearing the actual shoes to be worn with the uniform.
