First, you’ll need a soft measuring tape and a partner to help out. Keep in mind that you’re measurements don’t always have to be perfect—just a good starting point. A good tailor can easily make some simple alterations to get you the perfect fit. If you’re not comfortable measuring yourself, stop by the Pursuit store and we'll be happy to help you.
With your arms at your sides, measure around your upper body, under your armpits and over the fullest part of your chest. That number (in inches) will be the starting point for your jacket size.
Use your height to determine whether you need a SHORT (S), REGULAR (R) or LONG (L) jacket style. If you’re shorter than 5’8” you’ll likely need additional tailoring to make your sleeves shorter. Guys 6'6"or taller will likely to need a to shop a big & tall store.
Depending on how you’re built, you may need to adjust your jacket size. If you’re skinny, you don’t need to adjust your size, but may need to have a tailor to slim the waist of jacket. If you’re solid or broad shouldered, you’ll likely need to go up to the next size.
Measure around your waist, just below your navel. Keep the measuring tape snug against your skin, but don't pull it tight. The number of inches is your waist measurement. Slim suit pants will be more narrow in the thighs than typical jeans. If you are not used to wearing your pants 'slim' we recommend we choose the next larger size.
Measure along the inner ridge from the crotch to the point you wish the pants to hit the shoe (typically where the heel of your shoe starts.)
