Tuxedos and Formal Wear : Tuxedo and Suit Size Charts


Tuxedo Suit/Jacket Sizing:

Getting sized for a suit is a relatively easy process. You most likely fit into one of the (3) categories below:

You already know your sizes if you own a suit, sportscoat, blazer or tuxedo.
If you currently own one of the above garments and it still fits, simply reference those sizes. They are all items with similar sizing guidelines to suits.
You do not own a suit, sportscoat, blazer or tuxedo, you do have access to a local tailor shop.
Once again, getting measurements for your suit should be a relatively easy process. You can always visit a local tailor shop to have your measurements taken (NOTE: you should not be charged a fee because the tailor will usually expect you to come back to him for your tailoring/alterations needs).
New! You know your height, weight, waist size and would like to use our tuxedo size calculator.
You do not fit into the previous two categories, but you do own a tape measure and have someone who can measure you.
As long as you have a tape measure and friend/family member, you can easily have your measurements accurately taken.

Be sure to stand up straight with your arms at your sides. Stand relaxed, yet still erect. Have your friend/family member take the tape measure around your chest (at its fullest part) UNDER your arms. Helpful hint: have your friend/family member insert a finger between the tape measure and your body to ensure a comfortable fit. This would be your "Chest Size". (Ex. 40, 42, 44, etc).

Next you want to find out if you are a "Short", "Regular", "Long", or "X-Long". This is determined by height.

See the chart below, if your height is in the Blue area, you are a short.
If your height is listed in the red area, you are a regular.
If your height is listed in the green area, you are a long.
If your height is taller than 6'3" you are considered to be an X-Long.

Suit Pants:

If you have a pair of suit pants, dress pants, or even khakis (NOTE: not tight jeans), you then have a good idea of what size waist you need for your tuxedo trousers.
If not, simply have your friend/family member take the tape measure and measure around your waist (this should be where you are comfortable wearing your trousers. Tradition used to state that you should wear your trousers up at your "belly button". Styles change over the years; it's rare that people still wear their trousers up that high). Bottom Line: You want to be comfortable whether you decide to wear your trousers up to belly-button or down closer to your hips.

Shirts:
To measure your collar size:
Take the measurement around the base of your neck and add 1/2 inch to the measurement; this is your "collar size".
To measure your sleeve length:
A. Base of neck (backside, center)
B. Outside tip of shoulder
C. Outside bend of elbow
D. Wrist or the point at which you prefer the cuff to end

1. Rest your hand on the side of your hip, with elbow bent.

2. Measure as shown in the illustration: - Start at (A) the backside base of the neck, - past (B) the shoulder, - around (C) the elbow, - to (D) the wrist or the point at which you prefer the cuff to end.

The path of the tape measure should follow the outside of the arm.
COMMON MISTAKES:
Some gentleman will measure their "sleeve length" incorrectly because they will start their measurement at the "top of the shoulder" instead of starting at the "middle of the back / bottom of neck". This can often reduce several inches from your correct measurement. When this happens, gentleman will sometimes order a 30/31 sleeve instead of the desired longer sleeve length.

For reference, here are some general sizing guidelines regarding "shirt sleeve lengths":

30/31 sleeve = usually 5'5" or shorter
32/33 sleeve = usually 5'6" to 5'9"
34/35 sleeve = usually 5'10" to 6'1"
36/37 sleeve = usually 6'2" to 6'4"
38/39 sleeve = usually 6'5" or taller

* NOTE: obviously, gentleman come in different shapes and sizes so the above guidelines may not be 100% accurate for everyone; however, it does serve as a good general guideline
