Shirts
Neck Size To measure the neck:
Place the tape around the neck. Set the tape low in the back of the neck and bring it around the front to where the collar will button. The tape should not be pulled tightly, rather just a true skin measurement.

Now add 1/2", 1 cm to your skin neck measurement to determine your final collar size. The collar size should always be at least 1/2 inch more than your skin neck measurement.

Men's hat sizes (US) measure the diameter of the hat. UK size is the diameter of your head. To obtain your measurements, measure the circumference of your head across the forehead and just below the curve of the skull in back, add 1/4" for US only and divide the result by Pi (3.14159). Continental European size is hat circumference (head plus one) in cm.

Best to use a cloth ruler or measuring tape; either imperial (inches) or metric (centimeters).

Notes

Sizes for gloves, socks, and stockings are the same in both the US and Europe. Sock sizes correspond to the length of your foot.

In addition to the sizes above, clothing sometimes uses approximate size measures, such as XS (Extra Small), S (Small), M (Medium), L (Large), and XL (Extra Large). These letters are especially common on T-shirts. Each letter may represent a range of two or three numbered sizes. International students from Asia should expect their large to correspond to a medium in the United States. But it is best to try on the clothing for fit, because there is little consistency among manufacturers.

Men's shirt and pants sizes are more consistent than women's clothing sizes because they reflect the actual size of their dimensions in inches. Men's shirt sizes measures the circumference of the neck and are mostly consistent. If a second number is listed, it is usually the sleeve length, and runs from 32 to 36 inches. Men's pants are sized using the waist measurement and the inseam measurement. The inseam is the distance from crotch to hem. Men's coats are measured according to chest size, measuring under the arms.

Men's hat sizes measure the diameter of the hat if it were deformed into a perfect circle. To obtain your measurements, measure the circumference of your head across the forehead and just below the curve of the skull in back and divide the result by Pi (3.14159). Women's hat sizes measure the circumference directly.

In the US, each whole shoe size differs by 1/3 of an inch. In Europe, whole shoe sizes differ by 2/3 of a centimeter (about 1/4 of an inch). This makes the correspondences between US and European shoe sizes only approximate. European shoe sizes are the same for men and women. In the US a woman's shoe is about 1 to 1-1/2 sizes greater than the same length men's shoe. Infant shoe sizes run from 0 (4 inches) to 13 (8-1/4 inches). These correspond to European sizes 15 to 31. Boy's shoe sizes run from 1 (8-1/2 inches) to 12 (12-1/4 inches). Girl's shoe sizes run from 1 (8-1/4 inches) to 9-1/2 (11 inches). Add 1 to the boy's size to get the equivalent girl's size. Of course, there's a lot of variability, so it is imperative to try on a shoe before purchasing. If the shoe fits, wear it.
