Is It Possible To Get A Suit Made If I Send Over My Measurements?

When it comes to luxury menswear, nothing beats the second skin your tailor will create for you. Bespoke suits are built from the ground up, ensuring that every bump, curiosity, and love handle is considered, ensuring that you look your best. You will also be safe in the knowledge that what you are wearing is one-of-a-kind. The question is: Is it possible to get a suit made if I send over my measurements?.  In this article, we are pleased to walk you through the entire process of getting measured for a bespoke suit, from consultation to measurement to fabric selection. 

Guide to Measuring for a Men's Suit

Our tailors must be aware of 12 essential measurements and 5 build data, which are shown below. Take your time and read our tips first. If you have your body measurements, let's take them for our tailor so that we can design your custom suit or shirt order.

Chest circumference

Put the measuring tape beneath your armpits and align it with your nipples to get an accurate measurement of the diameter around your chest. Make sure that the tape is held in a horizontal position. For the purpose of obtaining an accurate measurement of your chest, you should relax your arms at your sides and breathe normally.

Neck circumference

It is important to avoid pulling the tape measure too tightly when you are measuring the circumference around your neck. Position the tape measure so that it is slightly below. Be sure not to extend your neck and avoid bringing your chin down; instead, maintain a relaxed posture.

Shoulder width

The width of your shoulders can be measured by starting at the outside edge of your left shoulder (which is roughly equivalent to the point where the sleeves of your shirt begin) and moving to the outside edge of your right shoulder. The tape should not be completely straight; rather, it should follow the natural curve of your back and contact the bone that is the most noticeable below your neck.

Arm length

Relax your arms and take measurements of them in two separate sessions: begin at the point where you finished measuring your shoulders, also known as the outside edge of your shoulder (the portion of your shoulder where the sleeve of your shirt begins), and measure all the way up to your elbow. While maintaining a close proximity to the contours of your arm, continue to measure from your elbow to just below your wrist bone.

Bicep circumference

The tape measure should be wrapped around the largest point of each of your biceps. Relax your arms at your sides and position them in this position. Submit the biggest value of the two.

Wrist circumference

The tape measure should be wrapped around your wrist, little below the wristbone. Send in the greater of the two values.

Back length

Bring your head down a bit and take a measurement starting from the most visible bone below your neck and ending one centimeter below your rear end. If you'd like, measure the center back seam of the jacket without the collar included. Use the measurement of a jacket that fits you.

Stomach circumference

Breathe normally and without holding it in (avoid sucking in your stomach!). Encircle your stomach with the tape, making sure it is in line with your belly button. Ensure that the tape measure remains horizontal.


Without holding your breath, measure four fingers down from your abdominal button. Make sure the tape measure is horizontal and that it won't be obstructed by your pants.

Hip circumference

Step out of your shoes and spread your legs a little apart. Using the inside leg's natural shape as a guide, measure from the floor to the highest point on the thigh (below the crotch line). Pull the tape just enough to be taut.


Submit the greater of the two values after wrapping the tape measure around your thigh, right below your groin. Ensure that the tape measure remains horizontal.

What would happen if your measurements weren't accurate? We can promptly correct the measurements if you provided them incorrectly.

Our statistical system, which is based on an exact sartorial specification sheet and a sartorial men's size table, confirms the accuracy of your measurements individually and collectively after you have verified your data.

We will get in touch with you to double check and make the necessary adjustments if the algorithm and our tailors determine that the dimensions and your made-to-measure item don't match.

Consider the occasion and season while selecting the weight of the cloth for a suit. Lightweight textiles weighing seven to nine ounces per square yard are typically worn in warm climates and during the summer. For the majority of the year, mid-weight fabric—typically weighing between 11 and 12 ounces—performs effectively in a range of temperatures. Heavyweight textiles, weighing between 14 and 19 ounces, are meant for colder climates and winter apparel.


The most popular material for suits is wool since it is breathable, adaptable, and wrinkle-free. It can be combined to create a variety of textures with a variety of other fibers, such as cashmere, silk, cotton, and linen. Suits are also frequently fashioned of worsted wool, which is derived from combed fibers that guarantee consistency during the spinning process. Super 100s, 140s, 160s, and 180s labels indicate how many times the worsted wool has been twisted during manufacturing. In general, lighter and smoother cloth is indicated by a higher number.


Cotton is another common material for suits; it breathes well but creases and wrinkles more readily than wool. These materials work well for more relaxed environments and go well with unconstructed jackets.


This fabric is perfect for tropical weather because it is lightweight and breathable. Linen wrinkles readily, just like cotton, thus informal settings are the greatest places to use it.


When worn alone, cashmere is a luxurious fabric that is incredibly soft and breathable. To soften the feel of their blends without raising the price, many businesses blend cashmere into their products.


Natural temperature regulation, breathability, and durability are all features of silk. While not commonly used on its own, it gives a gentle touch and the aforementioned attributes to a combination.


This synthetic fiber is affordable and is utilized in a wide range of suits at modest pricing. It is less breathable than wool and wrinkles more easily. Many businesses attempt to divide the difference by using a wool-poly blend to include some of the benefits of wool into a low-cost fabric.
