Suit coats are the fundamental dressing of men, for both formal as well as casual dressing. It should be remembered that dressing plays an important role in creating an impression. Although suits are available in different style and sizes, those with the correct measurements can give flattering results. Therefore, custom suit coats are recommended as they are made based on a person’s form and physique. Now, let’s learn how sizes for stitching a custom suit coat should be taken.
Start the measurement of custom suit coat with chest, which goes right under the arms. It is better that you stand in front of a mirror and take this measurement so that you can ensure that the tape stays straight. Keep one end in the middle and take the other end around your chest till it meets the center end. While noting the reading, see that the tape does not get loose anywhere, but it should not be too tight either.
Next, wear a dress shirt so that you can measure the length of the arms based on it. See that the arms of your custom suit coat extend till half the inches of the cuffs of your shirt. This means that the rest of the cuffs till the wrist bone will be exposed.
