Do-It-Yourself T-Shirt Measuring
A guide for t-shirt measuring. To determine your correct size to order when buying a new t-shirt, use your best fitting t-shirt as a guide. Todd Shelton t-shirt sizing charts can be seen here.
T-shirt Measuring – Chest
Lay t-shirt on a flat surface and smooth out any creases. At one inch below the armhole, measure across the chest. Measuring two t-shirts will produce more accurate results.
|Inch||18 ¼||19 ¼||20 ¼||21 ¼||22 ¼||23 ¼||24 ¼||25 ¼|
The shirt is narrow by half an inch at the bottom opening in relation to the above chest measurements.
T-shirt Measuring – Shoulder
To determine shoulder measurement, lay t-shirt front side down and measure straight across from left top shoulder point to right top shoulder point.
|Inch||16 ⅜||16 ⅞||17 ⅜||17 ⅞||18 ⅜||18 ⅞||19 ⅜||19 ⅞|
To determine sleeve length you will need to measure your t-shirt’s shoulder and sleeve. Measure from top shoulder point to the end of the sleeve, add this measurement to half of the shoulder measurement from from your own t-shirt to find your sleeve length.
32/33 = 33 1/2, stabilizing at 33 after laundering
34/35 = 35 1/2, stabilizing at 35
36/37 = 37, stabilizing at 36 1/2
To determine overall length, lay shirt your t-shirt on a flat surface and measure from the highest point (beside the neckband) down to the bottom hem.
|Small/Medium||24 ½||26 ½||28 ½|
|Medium/Large||25 ½||27 ½||29 ½|
|Large/X-Large||26 ½||28 ½||30 ½|
|X-Large Plus||27 ½||29 ½||31 ½|
Narrow arm and narrow waist shapes are illustrated with white lines on the left facing arm and left facing side seam.
