"Classic fit" is a traditional fit that is comforable and easy to wear; it is cut generously throughout the chest and waist, but still maintains a clean body shape."Slim fit" is cut closer to the body; the armholes are usually a little higher and the arms and legs are cut narrower as well. "Modern fit" falls between classic fit and slim fit. It has more room than a slim fit, but less boxy than a classic fit.

Intro to General Sizing You've Got Options

Getting your tuxedo measurements is a relatively easy process. It's also nice to know that you have options. The easiest way to finding your sizes is simply looking in your closet and viewing the size tags. Jackets usually have size tags in the inside pockets; shirts usually have size tags close to the neck. If you don't have any jackets or dress shirts, you can then take your own measurements by checking out the videos some of the videos and size charts below. Lastly, if you don't have a tape measure, you can always visit a local tailor in your area to get your measurements.

Tuxedo Suit/Jacket Sizing:

If you are used to wearing suits, you probably already know your jacket size. If you don't own a jacket, you can have a friend or family member take a few measurements to help find your jacket size.

Pants Sizing:

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. A good rule of thumb that is frequently used today is to measure 4 fingers below your belly button. Check out the video below for additional details:

Waist Measurement:

Your actual waist measurement is usually larger than your pant size. For example, in the video below our model "Mike" measured "35.5"; however, he normally wears 33 waist pants. In general, it is usually recommended to order your regular waist size that you normally wear opposed to going based on your actual waist measurement.

Pant Length (Outseam):

The easiest way to measure your pant length is by measuring from side of your waist down to the floor. Then subtract 1 inch. For example, in the video below,you will see that our model "Mike" measures "41.5 inches". When we subtract 1 inch, we see that Mike's pant length is "40.5 inches".

Hip Measurement:

Your waist measurement and inseam is usually all that you need to select the correct pants; however, if you are on the larger size or if you have a big butt, you may want to factor your hip measurement into the size chart.

Shirt Sizing:

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"

Common Shirt Sizing Mistake:

Some gentleman will measure their "sleeve length" incorrectly because they only factor in their "arm measurement" and they forget to include their "shoulder measurement divided by 2". 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" that apply to most gentleman:

  • 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

Vest Sizing:

When selecting your vest, it is recommended to factor in both your "waist size" and "jacket size". For most gentleman, "jacket size" is a good guide to use. However, if you have an athletic build with a small waist, you may want to order based on your waist size. For example, suppose you wear a 42R jacket, but you only have a 32 waist. In this case, the size "Small" would work better for you. For less-athletic gentleman who have "larger bellies", you also want to factor in your waist measurement. For example, suppose you wear a size 50 coat with a 48 waist size. If you go based on just jacket size, the size XL may be be your initial selection. However, with the 48" waist size, a size 2XL vest would be a more comfortable fit in this case.

*Long Version Vests are also available in sizes Medium through 5XL for gentleman who are 6'1" or taller."
