Measurement Tutorial

Measurement of dimensions of your body or shirt can be really tricky, if not executed properly. There’s nothing to worry! Everyone of us have been through this sort of inconvenience, and so we are sharing with you the techniques necessary to measure accurately, like a professional tailor! All you need to do is to follow these simple steps, and you will sail through it just fine. Don’t worry about minor mistakes, as the Aussie Shirt Company will make all necessary adjustments to maintain a breathing space in all aspects of measurement.

You will require the following for successfully completing the process of measurement:

  • A measuring tape, that should be kept loose while taking measurements. Please remember that tension in the tape means your measurements will be short of the ideal one.
  • A piece of paper and a pen/pencil, for noting down the measurements. Kindly mention whether the measurement is in centimeters or inches.
  • A person who will assist you in taking measurements.
