Get the Measure of Yourself

Our shirts have been produced with the British High Street in mind. Consequently, if you know your measurements for one of our competitors, then a Christian Benedict shirt in that size is likely to fit you as well.

However, if you're not sure why not check out our guide on how to measure yourself?

Remember: If a shirt doesn't fit or you aren't 100% happy with it, you can always send it back. We'll give you a full refund and cover the cost of the return leg (we enclose a prepaid Royal Mail address label with every shirt).

Step One - Work out your 'Fit'

Your 'fit' is the general size of the shirt and will determine how closely the material hugs your torso. Our most generous fit is our 'Regular', while we call our medium 'Slim Fit'. Our 'Extra Slim' size is the smallest size. To work out which fit is best for you, you'll need your waist and chest size. For your chest take a tape measure and loop it around the broadest part of your chest (under your armpits and horizontal to the floor). For your waist measurement wrap the tape measure around the narrowest part of your waist. Now check our size chart guide to see what fit might suit you best - you'll need to know your collar size to start with, as you will want to compare the chest and waist sizes of the appropriate collar size to your own chest and waist measurement.

Step Two - Work out your 'Collar' size

To work out what your collar size is take a tape measure and hold it flush around your neck, then loosen to allow two fingers to slip in between your neck and the tape. Have a friend tell you what the measurement is or use a mirror. We offer collar sizes starting at 15" and increasing in increments of 0.5" to 17.5", but are hoping to increase this range in the future.

Step Three - Work out your Sleeve Length

To work out your sleeve length, you'll need to take three related but separate measurements. You will also need a friend to help. To start, stand with your arm raised at just under right angles to your body. Then bend your arm at the elbow so your hand moves towards your chest. Now ask you friend to measure from the centre of your back to your shoulder and note down the result. Secondly, measure from your shoulder to your elbow, again noting the result. Finally, measure from your elbow to your wrist bone. Add all three results together to get your sleeve length.
