Size Measuring

Men's clothing: finding your size

At vangils.eu you can easily and quickly shop for a completely new business or casual look. Don't know your size? Measuring is knowing. Take a tape measure and take a look at our menswear size charts, per category. For a perfectly cut suit, shirt or trousers, you can make an appointment with a Traveling Tailor.

Tips for finding your size:

  • Stand upright, in a relaxed position
  • Do not hold your breath
  • Do not pull the tape measure too tightly
  • Do not measure over your clothes, but directly on the skin
  • Have your measurements measured by someone else
  • Are you in between sizes? Then choose the larger size

Ready-made, quarter & length sizes

In the Van Gils men's wear size charts, we distinguish among regular, long and wide. The regular sizes are standard clothing sizes. Under the heading 'wide' you will find the quarter sizes that are intended for the somewhat small, sturdy man. Are you tall? Then choose the length sizes.

Fit: slim fit, tailored fit, regular fit and shaped fit

In addition to the size, the fit is also important. Which fit suits you best will depend on your build. At Van Gils we distinguish among four fits:

  • Regular fit: the name says it all, regular fit means that the item is not fitted. A comfortable fit for the more sturdy man.
  • Tailored fit: an elegant fit with a light waistline. A tailor-fitted dress shirt is perfect for an everyday business look.
  • Slim fit: slim men should go for a slim-fitted suit and/or shirt that is tailored to accentuate a slim build.
  • Shaped fit: this extra-tailored fit is ideal for (tall) slim men.

In the product details, you will see which type of fit each product has.

  • Size chart suits

    It is essential that a suit has the right size. This means: not too tight and certainly not too loose. Your suit must sit comfortably and still button up well. Use a tape measure to ensure that you choose the right size. Stand up in a relaxed position and measure your chest, waist and hip circumference. For a detailed size calculation, you must also measure your shoulder width, arm and back length. Use the table below to find your correct size.

  • Size chart jackets

    jacket is a perfect basic item for an everyday look. You can wear a jacket both formally and casually. It is important that it feels comfortable. Do not buy your jacket too small, but not too large either. When you close the button, the jacket should fit nicely and not pull too much. Use a tape measure to measure your chest and waist circumference (at the level of your belly button) and preferably the shoulder width, back and arm length as well. In the table below you will find which size you need.
