Fitting your Jacket


The Measurement Guide

Mears have many years of experience in measuring and fitting ready to wear garments, by carefully following their guidelines it will ensure your garment will be the correct fit. If we feel the measurements are incorrect you will be contacted before the garment is cut.


You will need:

A fabric tape measure
A person to measure you
A well fitting shirt the type you will wear with your jacket, pair of trousers (not jeans), jacket, and a pair of shoes.


When taking measurements:

•    Keep the tape measure comfortably snug, but not tight
•    All measurements should be to the nearest 1/2 of an inch


Jacket Chest

Measure around the fullest part of the chest keeping the tape measure level,
and well under the arms.

You should only just be able to feel the tape measure on your chest.

Stand normally and do not inflate your chest.

Make sure your index finger is able to fit between the tape and your chest.

Measuring your required Jacket Length

Lift up the collar on your jacket and measure from the collar seam down the centre back seam to the hem at the bottom of the jacket following the contours of your body.

If you are unsure of the perfect length it is generally accepted to be where your knuckles are with your arms naturally hanging down.

Measuring your required Sleeve Length

With your arm in line with your body, measure from the top of the sleeve (crown) to the cuff.

The sleeve should go to the base of your thumb (located at the wrist joint).

We also recommend that you err on the side of generosity with your sleeve length.
