Upper Body Measurements

1. Sherwani and Kurta Length

2. Jodhpuri and Suit Length
Measure from the base of your neck to the point that hits half of your thumb for a tailored look in jodhpuris and suits.

3. Shoulder Width
Span the tape across your back from one shoulder to another to determine the ideal shoulder width, a key for the structure of any upper garment.

4. Arm Length
Measure from the shoulder to half of your thumb to specify the arm length for sleeves that fit just right.

5. Chest Measurement (Two Levels)

  • Chest 1: Around the fullest part of your chest.
  • Chest 2: Below the chest and above your stomach for a fitted profile.

6. Waist and Hips
Measure around your natural waist and the widest part of your hips for a snug fit that doesn’t compromise comfort.

7. Biceps and Neck

  • Biceps: Circumference of your biceps to ensure sleeves are neither tight nor loose.
  • Neck: Around the base of your neck to find the right collar size.

Bottom Measurements

1. Trousers Length
From the top of the waistband to the ground, measure to ensure trousers that elegantly brush your shoes.

2. Waist and Hips
Proper measurements here are crucial for trousers that fit perfectly right out of the box.

3. Thighs and Knees
Measure around the fullest part of your thigh and your knee to allow for freedom of movement.

4. Trouser Bottoms and Inseam

  • Bottoms: The leg opening circumference impacts the overall style—choose slim or wide based on your preference.
  • Inseam: From the crotch to the desired length, critical for proper trouser length.

5. U-Shape of the Trouser
This measurement ensures ample space in the crotch area for comfort and mobility.

By following these detailed measurement instructions, you're set to order or tailor traditional Indian and formal attire that fits as if made just for you. Precision in measurement is crucial for a refined look and essential comfort. Use this guide to ensure every piece from sherwanis to suits fits impeccably.
