Tuxedo Sizing and Measurement Information
Everything you need to find the perfect-sized tux is here. You can measure yourself (recommended), or print out a measuring form and find where to get measured elsewhere.
Measure at Home
Choose a measurement from the menu below for instructions on how to take it yourself. To make things easier, you can print a measuring tape and form..
If you don't already know your height, measure from the top of the head to the floor (without shoes) – this is your height.
If you have a scale, use it as you normally would and record the weight provided by the device.
If you do not have access to a scale at home, you can estimate by using your last recorded weight and take into consideration any changes your body has gone through since that time.
Have a friend wrap a measuring tape around the widest part of your chest and back, under your arms.
Have a friend begin at the nape (center of the back of your neck) and guide the measuring tape out over your shoulder and down the outer edge of your arm, stopping just past your wrist bone. Record this as your sleeve length.
Have a friend measure around the middle of your neck, not too tight – record the measurement at a relaxed fit.
Have a friend begin at your hip, about 2" below belly-button height. From there, measure down the outside of the leg, to the floor. Deduct 1.5" and record your outseam.
Check your pant tags, either on the outer waistband, or stitched to the inner waistband. Typically there will be two numbers printed such as 38-34. If they are not labeled, the number on the right is your pant length.
Measure around the widest part of your hips and butt. Sounds weird, but it helps.
Take off your belt, and measure snugly around your waist where your pants normally sit.
