ALB & CASSOCK MEASUREMENTS

We require two measurements. The length and chest size.

Length:

Measurement to be taken from the nape of the neck (under a conventional shirt, blouse or jacket collar) to the length you actually want the garment to be made.

Chest:

Measurement to be taken around the chest under the arms and over the fullest part of the chest.

COTTA & SURPLICE MEASUREMENTS

 

We require two measurements. The length and chest size.

Length:

Measurement to be taken from the shoulder to the length you actually want the garment to be made. You will note a yellow length and a red length.

The yellow length is is taken from the shoulder to the wrist and is usually a guideline length for a cotta.

The red length is is taken from the shoulder to the tips of the fingers with the arms stretched out down the side of the body as per the picture of the lady and is usually a guideline length for a standard surplice.

As all lengths are subject to taste (subjective) the length chosen aesthetically would normally fall between these two lengths.

Chest:

Measurement to be taken around the chest under the arms and over the fullest part of the chest.

Quite simply the Measurement needs to be taken around the central part of the neck - over the adam's apple. (Ladies Shirts are supplied by Dress Size)

No other measurements are required.

CONVERTING METRIC & BRITISH STANDARD MEASUREMENTS

With garments and other items increasingly being made and sold according to metric (centimetres) measurements here is a help to all of us who still think in British Standard 'inches'.
