Taking measurements for bespoke suiting while touring (Part 2).

Continuing from the last article (Part 1)

Taking the measurements for legs. Taking five measurements for the trousers is necessary if you wish to have them made perfectly. The first measurement we take is called the side seam so getting the body sideways to the tape measure standing to attention with your legs together and just raise your right arm slightly so you can bring the tape measure in from your hip, all the way down to your heel. For the second measurement for the trousers, we take the inside leg measurement and for that we measure from the upper area all the way down to the heel on the foot. For this measurement, we ask you to stand at attention with both legs apart. We just find the upper apex measurement all the way down to the heel.

The third measurement we take for the trousers is the trousers’ waist measurement. For this, we ask that you stand at attention with your legs together and just raise your arms slightly so you can bring in the tape measure for this around your waist.  It's careful to note that the tape measure should not catch on the trousers so it's just sitting above your normal trouser position. We make sure that it's not catching on anything and then you give it a gentle tug and where the tape-measure meets itself on your tail bone and waist is measured there. There is no finger in-between the tape measure and the body and that makes the trousers snug closely to the body.

The fourth measurement for the trousers is called the seat measurement and for this we need you to stand at attention with your legs together and just raise both arms slightly so you can bring the tape measure all the way around the seat of the body. Just make sure it's in the correct position with the arms down and it should be over the fullest part of your seat. Always have one finger between the tape measure and the body the fifth and last measurement is the cuff measurement of the trousers and for this we just ask that you put your arms down by your side legs apart and you take the tape measure all the way around the ankle.

After, these measurements we are ready to construct the suit which you have always desired for.
