How to measure your arm and chest length

Arm Length

Take one of your existing shirts where the arm is a good fit and lay it on the floor.

Measure from the centre of the back of the shirt to the top of the shoulder. Then continue from the top of the shoulder to the end of the cuff.

For example: Length 1 + Length 2 = 33 inch

For someone with average arm length and a chest size of 42 this length will be around 33 inches.

For cm conversion 1 inch = 2.54 cm






Chest Width

Take a shirt that fits you well and measure around the chest as shown above. Do not pull to tight. Unless you want a tight shirt.
