THE MEASURE OF A MAN
HOW TO MEASURE FOR A BLAZER & SPORT COAT
To get accurate measurements, you will need a soft measuring tape and a partner to help. Remove your outerwear and/or suit jacket when having your measurements taken. Of course, you can always stop in at any Men's Wearhouse and one of our Expert Stylists will be happy to take your measurements.
IMPORTANT: The chest and overarm measurements are a guideline for the range of sizes that fit your frame. As a general rule, your chest measurement will be your jacket size.
Hold your arms out to the side and have your partner wrap the tape measure around your torso, making sure the tape is snug in your armpits. Lower your arms and have your partner check to make sure the tape is level across your shoulder blades in the back and over the widest part of your chest in the front. Make sure you aren’t holding your breath or sucking in. This will affect the measurement.
Stand with your arms at your side. Have your partner wrap the tape measure around your arms and torso, making sure the tape is level across your shoulder blades in the back and the widest part of your chest in the front. Make sure you aren’t holding your breath or sucking in. Instead, breathe regularly and keep your body relaxed.
NOTE: To accommodate men with a large upper body, both measurements should be considered. If the difference between your chest and overarm measurements is greater than 7", subtract 7" from your overarm measurement to get your jacket size. For example, if your chest measures 40" and your overarm measures 49", the recommended jacket size is 42. We suggest trying on different sizes and fits so you can see what looks and feels best.
These measurements are a guide to help choose the size that will fit you best.
Your exact size may vary depending on the designer label you choose.

Style tips for Big & Tall men
The proper fit is key. A garment that fits well can be slimming and flattering. Clothes that are fit too tight/small make you look like you need to lose a few pounds. It may seem like clothes that are too big are hiding your frame, but they make you look even bigger. Our in-store Expert Stylists Master Tailors will ensure you get the right size and fit.
Classic tones are your friend. Big and/or tall guys can stand out because of their size, and that’s not always a good thing. Choosing classic colors like black, gray, or navy is best. Add color in accent items rather than in main wardrobe pieces like jackets or pants. Avoid large-scale patterns like plaids or window panes.
Button your blazer. This simple act creates a slimming effect for a big guy, or a less imposing look for a muscular build. Just don’t forget to unbutton before sitting to avoid unwanted creases.
