Styleforum Dress Shirt Measurements Database

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
SF, I've set up a form so that everyone here can put in measurements of their dress shirts. I will export these measurements daily to an Excel file and put it up here. This will hopefully benefit people who are trying to find the best fitting shirts. If you guys think more measurements should be added or you have any suggestions please reply to this thread. Please follow this link for the form, thanks all! UPDATE: Download database in Excel here UPDATE: Link to form simplified. HD

While the idea seems good, I'm not sure how useful it will actually be. Many shirt makers have many different cuts and can be rather inconsistent in their fits. Also it's common for cuts to change from season to season as they get updated. This database would be more useful if we lived in a world where every shirt manufacturer had 1 or 2 standardized fits. Unfortunately, most don't.

You're right, that's why I put the comment section there so people could provide other information. While a database like this has limitations, I think measurements are more helpful than something very subjective like "Black Label is pretty slim".

This is an absolutely fantastic idea. All my non-MTM shirts are off getting cleaned. Once I get them back, I'll definitely help out with this.

Cuff measurement might be better done from button to end of button hole (like the neck is done). Great idea, I'll share when I get a chance.
