TJ's Custom Made Jeans Measurement Sheet 
Please write down the measurements you take for each measurement as we will ask you to confirm them against any order.
 
 
Waist Measurement 

Measure from one side of the waistband to the other side. Be sure to pull any folds or looseness from both fronts and backs so the jeans are laying completely flat.

The total distance of this measurement multiplied by 2 is your waist measurement.

   
   
Seat / hips Measurement 

At this stage we recommend putting the jeans on and identifying where you are fullest or widest in the hips including your seat/ buttocks. Mark the jeans on both sideseams at this spot for use in the 'Waist to hips measurement'. Then remove your jeans and measure from one side to the other side where you have made the marks. Be sure to pull any folds or looseness from both fronts and backs so the jeans are laying completely flat.

You will then multiply this measurement by 2.

Tip: Mark this point on the side seams and/or in the middle with masking tape or chalk for the next measurement.

Waist to Hip Measurement 

Measure from the top of your waistband to the masking tape you put on your front where you are fullest or widest in the hips.

This is your waist to hip measurement.

   
   
Front Rise Measurement 

Measure from the crotch where the inseam meets the front and back seams to the top of the waistband. Be sure to pull any folds or looseness from both fronts and backs so the jeans are laying completely flat.

This measurement is known as the front rise.

   
   
Back Rise Measurement 

Measure from the crotch where the inseam meets the front and back seams to the top of the waistband. Be sure to pull any folds or looseness from both fronts and backs so the jeans are laying completely flat.

This measurement is known as the back rise.

   
   
Thigh at Fullest Place 

Measure the thigh at the crotch where the inseam meets the front and back seams at the crotch. Measure from one side to the other side, directly across the fabric width when pulled flat.

You will then multiply this measurement by 2. This is your thigh measurement.

Tip: Avoid the mistake of measuring halfway down to the knee - the correct position is much higher, near the crotch.

   
   
Knee Measurement 
Measure where the jeans are widest in the knee; normally about half distance from the waistband and the bottom hem. Measure from one side to the other side. You will then multiply this measurement by 2.
   
   
Inseam Length 

Measure the inseam from the crotch where the front & back seams meet to the bottom of the leg at the length you wish your jeans to reach. Keep in mind any shoes or boots you will wear when you wear your jeans.

   
   
Leg Opening  

Measure from one side to the other side.

You will then multiply this measurement by 2. This is your leg opening measurement.

   
   
How to measure for a truely custom fit TJ's jeans.

 

We highly recommend..

You take the measurements from your best fitting jeans laid flat on a table.

Our experience with other methods of measuring has never been as accurate and satisfying as measuring over a good fitting pair of jeans and making minor adjustments for a better fit. Please trust us on this!

 

Helpful measuring tips for a truely Tailormade Jeanswear fit.

1. Be careful to measure using the beginning/start of the measuring tape.     

2.To take accurate measurements pull the measuring tape straight, don't leave it hanging loose. Make sure the tape is at equal angles to the seams if measuring across, not higher or lower on one side.

3. It will help if you measure your best fitting jeans while they are laying flat on a table. Make any adjustments to give you the fit you want.

4. Alternately like many of our clients who donít have a best fitting pair; measure a pair of jeans, shorts or trousers that fit in most places and make adjustments to give you the fit you want.

5. Don't measure over belts or items that may be in pockets.

6. It will help save you time if you jot down your individual measurements as you measure for later use when filling in your account form.

7. A friend or relative may be of help in taking your measurements. This may make it more fun too!
