Measurement Guide for Men and Women Entourage

Sachi Nicole  Edralin-Measurement

Some of our entourage opted to have their gowns made by the mananahi we got in divisoria for the the entourage. And since some of our entourage are from provinces, I sent them this measuring guide so that all they need to do if fill it out and send it back in.

I then have the gown sent through mail (LBC) to them and they so they can fit the gown, make “pinned adjustments” and then back again to the mananahi (dressmaker) so they can remedy the adjustments.

Then a day before the wedding they do a final fit.

I did not have trouble with this method, saved lots of time on my end 🙂

For men, I got this over the internet but could not find the source. Please please notify me where I got this if you find out who posted this so i can properly credit this to them. Thank you

Neck

Measure around your neck at the level your shirt collar would sit. You should not feel restricted by the tape for a comfortable fit, and should be able to put your index finger inside the tape.

 

_______

Chest

 (What to Wear: Shirt)

Measure horizontally around the chest roughly at nipple level, under the armpits, and over your shoulder blades. You should only just be able to feel the tape on your chest. Do not over-inflate your chest but stand normally; you should be able to fit your index finger in between the tape and your chest. This measurement is a body measurement and there will be an allowance added to it to make your jacket, the allowance will be added according to the fit that you chose.

 

_______

Jacket Waist

(What to Wear: Shirt)

Measure horizontally around your stomach at the level of the bottom of the ribcage. As a guide this measurement should be where you are widest. Allow some room for breathing/movement.

 

_______

Waistcoat

(What to Wear: Shirt)

Measure from the bottom of your shirt collar to below your belt line. Even if you don’t wish to have a waistcoat – please give the measurement a go.  It helps us to make your jacket pattern too.

 

_______

Shoulder Width

(What to Wear: Jacket)

Measure from the end of your left shoulder to the end of your right shoulder. This measurement should be equal to the desired width of the jacket’s shoulders.

 

_______

Jacket Length

(What to Wear: Jacket)

Measure vertically down your front from just next to the collar on your jacket, where the seam is on your shoulder, to where you would like the jacket to end. If you are unsure of the perfect length it is generally accepted to be where your knuckles are with your arms naturally hanging down. A shorter, more trendy length, looks good when coupled with jeans, but is an acquired taste in a suit. You can also use a jacket you like as a guide.

 

_______

Left Sleeve

(What to Wear: Jacket)

Measure from where the seams on the shoulder meet to where you want the sleeve to end. The measurement you input will be the measurement of your jacket sleeve. We recommend that the sleeve should go to the base of your thumb (located at the wrist joint).

 

_______

Right Sleeve

Measure from where the seams on the shoulder meet to where you want the sleeve to end. The measurement you input will be the measurement of your jacket sleeve. We recommend that the sleeve should go to the base of your thumb (located at the wrist joint).

As a guide, this measurement will be about 2 inches above what you take off-the peg.

 

_______

Seat

(What to Wear: Trousers)

Measure around your hips and buttocks at their widest point on a pair of well-fitting trousers (not jeans). Make sure your pockets are empty and the tape is not restrictive. As a guide, you should not make the tape too snug. You only just be able to feel the tape when measuring.
