Do not measure yourself
You need to stand up straight with weight even on both legs to ensure accurate measurements.
Wear breeches and socks
Wear the breeches and socks that you would normally wear.
Measure one leg at a time
To avoid mistakes, do not try to do both simultaneously.
Measure on a hard floor
Don’t measure on carpet or an uneven floor.
Measure strictly in this order – 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 12 and finally 8.
Put the sticky labels for 9, 10 and 11 in the same place on each leg. do your right leg first and use the same measurements to place the labels, in the same place, on the left leg.
Sticky labels and a tape measure
Use the sticky labels to mark the place on your legs that you will measure.
Take all measurements in cm.
The tape measure
Taut, not tight, not loose. never pull the tape measure tight. Just take the measurement where your tape measure meets without any sagging.
Check, then check again
Finally, double-check your measurements.
Taking measurements into your own hands
It is really not difficult to provide your own measurements if you follow the step-by- step instructions accurately. The really important part is to read our checklist carefully before you begin! Most of us can read a tape-measure (which is the vital part) so don’t worry about getting it wrong but do keep still whilst you are being measured and try not to ‘supervise’ by twisting your body to take a look at what is going on.
Once completed we will scrutinise your measurements to ensure that they are accurate and we may well ask you to check or confirm certain areas before proceeding to process the order. We are perfectionists so don’t be surprised if we ask a lot of questions!
