Fit Guides

How to get the correct fit…

Take the guesswork out of sizing. The first step to any good fit is having the right measurements. We offer size and fit charts on most of our products - you can find them under our Size Guides navigation to the right.

Our size charts offer a basic guideline for fitting while the garment measurements are specific to that product. The Fit Guide explains how your custom garment is going to fit you. 

Step 1. What's Your Size?

Most custom clothing manufacturers use different sizing specifications based on their target audience. The custom clothing products on our web site have product specific size charts  A size chart generally refers to the "size" you might want based on your actual body measurements. You should use this as a general guideline because you might want a tighter or looser fit. (See Step 2 to determine your best fit)

You can get your accurate body measurements using the following steps:

  • Get a friend to help if possible
  • Use a cloth tape measure and keep the tape taut but not stretched
  • Measure your body over properly fitting undergarments while standing tall and without shoes
  • Measure the areas needed such as: chest, neck, waist, hips, sleeve, inseam and head based upon the guidelines below

Step 2. What's Your Best Fit?

Using garment dimensions is the best way to determine how an item will fit you. Different activities will often dictate your personal fit preference - swinging a golf club probably requires a looser fit than sitting at a concert. The garment dimensions listed are the actual size of the garment laid out flat. If you have a garment that you like the way it fits, you can measure it based on the steps below and then determine what the best size to order will be.

1. Lay the garment flat (Example of how to measure a polo shirt-measurments above)
2. Measure the following:
A. Chest - Measure across the chest one inch below armhole when laid flat
B. Body Length - Measure from the high point of the shoulder from the front to the hem
3. Compare the garment measurements to your actual body measurements (done in step 1) and allow for movement
4. Our size guides refer to garment sizes not body sizes.
5. Note: Most manufacturers accept a tolerance of + or - 1" from their published specs 
6. When in doubt, if you fall between sizes, order a size up
