Leather Jacket Measuring Guide

A leather jacket is a timeless and versatile wardrobe staple, but achieving the perfect fit is essential for comfort and style. Follow this comprehensive guide to accurately measure yourself for a custom or off-the-rack leather jacket.

General Instructions

  • Wear Appropriate Attire: Wear a thin layer of clothing, similar to what you intend to wear under the jacket. This ensures accurate measurements.
  • Use a Cloth Measuring Tape: Utilize a flexible cloth measuring tape for precise measurements. Ensure it is snug but not tight for accurate results.
  • Stand in a Natural Posture: Stand naturally with relaxed shoulders and arms by your side. Avoid slouching or standing too rigidly.
