SUITS: Men's size chart and measuring instructions.Updated a year ago

Our men’s suits are available in the standard UK suit sizes ranging from 36 to 52. However, we strongly advise you to take some time in order to measure yourself, or have someone else measure you up to ensure you get the correct size.

Please note that the fitting of our suits only comes in regular sizes, not in long or short sizes.

PLEASE NOTE: our suits have a slim-fit design. When in doubt between two sizes, we recommend you pick the larger size of the two.

Measuring up your chest size is the most important part as it is essential to get the right size jacket. Identifying your chest size should be achieved by measuring at the widest part of your chest with a tape measure.

The lower waist is measured around the part where you normally wear suit trousers, just three fingers below the height of your belly button. For the inside leg size, let someone measure you from the highest point from the inside of your leg down to where your heel hits the floor. Hold the tape measure alongside your leg, keep your legs slightly apart, and do not wear shoes while doing this.
*Obviously, the length of the inside leg is much shorter for our Summer Suits. Luckily, the inside leg size is not essential to determine your Summer Suit size.

Once you have your measurements, please compare against the table above to identify the correct size. If your chest size falls into a different size category compared to your waist, all you need to do is select the jacket sizing you require. The trousers are ready to go in their stated size but if you need them taken in or need a little extra added, the design allows for a tailor to adjust the waistband and side seams two sizes either way.

Have you found your size? Wait no longer and have a look at our men's suits.
