post #26551 of 41940

Hey guys, I have been itching to get a ToJ jacket for a LONG time (couple years) and finally have the disposable income ready to get a jacket made. I need to get my measurements taken for ordering purposes. Does anyone in the Toronto area have a tailor suggestion?

Any tailor should be able to do it, alternatively you can just buy a measuring tape and follow the guide they have for measuring.

I would do it yourself, a lot of tailors don't give a shit and/or they measure a certain way to fit their house fits

Yeah, it's not that hard. And if you have a good friend that you trust, they can spot you on measurements when you start freaking out and doubt your own abilities.

Yeah seriously, just get a friend to help you. I did my measurements with a cheap paper tape measure and just got 3 different people to try it to make sure and it worked out great biggrin.gif

I had my measurements done at Studio Kim near King and Bathurst, but I didn't find the measurements she gave me very helpful. I ended up just measuring my self and using a jacket I liked the fit of as a reference piece.

I imagine Synth as Robert Pattinson.

Measured myself....does this sound wrong? Shoulders 16.5 Chest 40 ? Midsection is 32.5 and waist is 31.

I'd guess your shoulders are bigger or your chest smaller, a 3.5 inch difference in width seems a bit much

Those are the same shoulder and chest measurements I gave for my jacket

3,5 inch difference in shoulder width and chest width here as well, so you might very well have measured it correctly. A smaller difference is probably more common though.. so to be as sure as possible, you might want to double check those two measurements.
