3 Steps: How to Measure Sleeve Length on a White Button-Up Shirt

Measuring your dress shirt sleeve length is essential to ensuring a proper fit. Here are three simple steps to help you measure the sleeve length of a white button-up shirt:

Step 1: Gather Your Tools

Before you begin measuring the sleeve length, make sure you have a flexible measuring tape or a ruler, and a white button-up shirt that you want to measure. Lay the shirt flat on a surface and smooth out any wrinkles to get an accurate measurement.

Step 2: Measure the Sleeve Length

Locate the center of the back of the collar of the shirt. From this point, measure straight down the back of the sleeve to the cuff. Keep the tape measure or ruler close to the sleeve for an accurate measurement. Note down the measurement in inches or centimeters.

Step 3: Check the Fit

Once you have measured the sleeve length, compare it to the sizing chart provided by the manufacturer. Ensure that the sleeve length falls within the recommended range for your size. If the sleeve length is too short or too long, consider altering the shirt or opting for a different size.

Including Jewelry in the Measurement

If you like to wear jewelry such as bracelets or watches, make sure to account for the extra length they add to your wrist. When measuring the sleeve length, you may want to wear your favorite jewelry to get a more accurate measurement for a comfortable fit.
