Shirt Measurements

For the best custom made shirts in Singapore, it starts with accurate measurements. This means ensuring that each step of the measuring process is taken and recorded accurately. This will help us create the shirts you will love that fit perfectly every time. We also store these records for any future custom made shirts or clothes alteration.

Collar / Neck

The first step is the collar measurement. All measurements are taken in inches. Place the tape measure close to the neck under the Adams apple, with index finger in between the tape measure. This allows for ease in the collar. Add a quarter inch only if you prefer them even bigger.


It is best to wear a dress shirt that you like and think fits you well for this measurement. This will give you a good gauge from where to begin and end the measurement.Follow the slope of the shoulder. Start from the shoulder line of an actual shirt, this is where the horizontal part of the shoulder meets the vertical part of the arm. Measure till the centre back and proceeding to the other end of the shoulder line.Measure up over the curve of the shoulders and to outside edge of the other shoulder.

Sleeve length

We take the half back ,run it across the shoulder, down the arm ,to the wrist,and stop in between the wrist and the beginning of the thumb. Please refer to video.


Run the measuring tape around the fullest part of your chest, under your armpits and over the shoulder blades. Let your arms hang down in a relaxed, natural pose. Do not arch or puff out your chest as this will exaggerate the measurements. Make sure the tape measure is straight all across running parallel to the ground, across the back. Place index finger in between the tape measure and this will give you your chest measurement.


These are not the same measurements that you would use when you buy your pants, so please do not use the same measurement. The belly button is the best indicator, from where you should start your waist measurements from. Run the tape around the fullest part of the belly. Place the index finger in between the tape measure, and this will give you the waist measurement.


Take the tape measure place it around the widest part of your hip, covers your seat. Place your index finger in between the tape measure , this will give you your hip measurements. Please remove all contents from your pockets when measuring your hip measurements.

Shirt length

Wear an existing dress shirt this will help.Place the first end of the measuring , where the seam meets the neckline under the collar.Hold the tape measure firmly there let it run across the body closest to the center front of the shirt ( watch video) .Where the tip of your thumb meets your pants is a good indicator of what a shirt length should be.
