How to Measure your Shirt Sleeve Length

It is best to have another person present, who would do this measurement for you. Stand straight and make sure your arm is bent slightly, then place the leading edge of the measuring tape at the center of the back of the neck, where the collar touches the shirt. Run the measuring tape over your shoulder, down the back of the arm passing over your elbow, to a 1/2" below your wrist bone. Do not adjust for shrinkage.  We will do that for you. If you do not have anyone to help with body measurements, take one of your dress shirts that fits you perfectly, button it up and spread it out face down on a flat surface. Place the leading end of the measuring tape at the center of the back, just below the collar band. Run the measuring tape along the top of the shoulder and down the sleeve to the end of the cuff.

We will do that for you.

This makes it an excellent choice for shirting, casual to go with your jeans and chinos, or a dressier shirt to pair with a suit or sports jacket.  Gone are the days when Chambray was typically only available in various shades of blue, now many fabric mills have added shades of tan, gray, green, lavender, and even red. In addition to that, patterns are now being printed on or even woven into the fabric. Chambray softens with every wash; however, it does crease and would require being pressed on a higher heat, with the setting on cotton. Denim on the other hand is a sturdier cotton that is woven in a diagonal weave called a twill, where the white weft thread...
