How to Measure a Man


In preparation for this afternoon’s Jutland Sew-Along post about fitting, I’ve created a handy chart to show you how to take all relevant measurements before choosing your size for any of our patterns.  I’ve included it in this post rather than within the sew-along post because it was starting to become overwhelmingly long…and I really don’t want to scare you away from fitting your pants because it isn’t very difficult at all!

If you would like to refer to this chart when you need to measure a man in the future, just head on over to our website and you will find it in our Tutorials section!

  1. Great post – I was looking for this exact info not long ago & I’ll be putting it to use soon:)

  2. This may a silly question, but my husband wears his pants several inches lower than his natural waist, should I measure the natural waist or where he likes his pants to fit?
