We understand that not everyone will be able to make it to the store or visit a local agent in their area to attend a fitting. This is why we have provided a self-measurement online instructions form below to follow, use a sewing tape measure (if you do not have one email and we will post you one), and ask someone else to help.

We highly recommend men get measured by a suit hire company or a menswear suit retailer.

NOTE: If supplied measurements are inaccurate, every effort will be made to meet your requirements. However this is not always possible due to heavy booking and therefore we accept no responsibility for incorrect information supplied to us.
