Measurement guide

HOW TO FIND THE PERFECT FIT!

At Maximus, we offer a large assortment of different brands and styles, each one fitting a little different. With the goal of creating the best shopping experience possible and to reassure you that your shirt and pants fit just right, Maximus has added the key measurements to all of our products online.

Please note that all measurements are of the clothing and not of the body. Also, it is possible that the fabric of the garment affects the way it actually fits. Now, go get your favorite t-shirt and favorite pair of pants, along with a measuring tape and you’re all set!

Measurements are shown in inches and are taken flat.

CHEST : Place measuring tape 1 inch under the armpit and measure horizontally.

BELLY : Place measuring tape where the belly is at its strongest (about the 3rd button from the bottom of a shirt) and measure horizontally.

BODY LENGTH : Place tape next to the collar, at the highest point of the shoulder, and measure vertically all the way to the bottom of the garment.

SLEEVE LENGTH : This measure takes two steps. First, place tape in the center of the back, just below the collar, and measure horizontally to the shoulder seam. Next, measure from the shoulder seam to the bottom of the sleeve. The sum of these two measurements gives you the length of the sleeves.
