Tips / Instructions

  • Always ask someone to measure you, never be temtped to measure yourself.
  • Our website will ask for your measurements in inches only, so please bare this in mind.
  • Stand relaxed (do not breath in!) with your feet together and look straight ahead at all times.
  • Ensure the tape measure is level all the way around, it shouldn't be sloping or slanting.
  • If you need our assistance, please call +44 (0)1792 474685 or drop us an e-mail (sales@welsh-tartan.com).

a) Collar Size:

  • Measure around your neck with one finger inside the tape for comfort.
  • Ensure the measurement is taken underneath your chin, not to the side.

b) Chest / Jacket Size:

  • Measure high under the armpits at the widest point around the upper body.
  • The tape measure should include the shoulder blades.
  • Relax your arms down to the side before recording your measurement.

c) Sleeve Length:

  • Both arms must be relaxed down to the side.
  • Where possible, this is best measured with a formal jacket on.
  • The measurement is from the crown to cuff (where the sleeve meets the shoulder to the bottom of the cuff).
  • Ensure this is not too long as some shirt cuff should be exposed.
  • We can reasonably predict your sleeve length from your height and will call you to discuss if necessary.
  • If you do not have a jacket to measure, measure from the top of your shoulder down to 1/2 inch past the wrist bone.
  • Sleeve guide: 23.5" - Short Fitting, 24.75" - Regular Fitting, 26" - Long Fitting

d) Kilt Waist:

  • The Kilt waist is much higher than a trouser waist.
  • This should be a snug measurement at the widest point of tummy, at navel level.

d) Trews Waist (High):

  • Please note - This measurement only applies to our "Tartan Trews", NOT our "Golf Trousers" as these are not high waisted (see Trouser Waist below).
  • Measure around waist at navel height.
  • Take measurement firmly, so the trews may sit comfortably without falling down.

d) Tummy Size:

  • Widest point of the tummy.
  • Add 1 inch for movement (or take a loose measurement).

e) Hips / Seat Size:

  • Remove any items from your pockets.
  • Measure around the widest point of the seat / hips.
  • As illustrated above, this is normally around the buttocks.
  • Put three fingers inside the tape to allow room for comfortable movement.

f) Kilt Length:

  • This measurement is best taken whilst kneeling down with the body upright and back straight.
  • Measure from the Kilt waist (as above) to the floor and take off 1/2 inch.
  • As a guide your Kilt length will normally correspond to your height as shown below:
    Kilt Length          Height     
21'' 5'5''
22'' 5'7''
23'' 5'9''
24'' 5'11''
25'' 6'1''
26'' 6'3''
27'' 6'5''


g) Inside Leg:

  • Measure from the crotch to the desired length.
  • We would strongly recommend measuring down to the floor, without shoes on. This will give you a nice break in the trouser.
  • Please take this measurement wearing formal trousers, up on the waist (not on the hips).

h) Outside Leg:

  • Please note - This measurement only applies to our "Tartan Trews" and "Golf Trousers".
  • Measure from your waist to the desired length.
  • We would strongly recommend measuring down to the floor, without shoes on. This will give you a nice break in the trouser.

i) Trouser Waist:

  • Please note - This measurement only applies to our "Golf Trousers", NOT our "Tartan Trews" as these are high waisted (see Trews Waist above).
  • Physically measure your waist size, do not rely on casual wear such as jeans or shorts.
  • Formal trousers are worn higher than casual wear (up on the waist) so please measure just above your hip bones.
