Collar Size  
SHIRT SIZE
What size shirt is right for you? At this time, we have 2 styles of shirts… normal fit and tapered fit. The normal fit shirt is the standard fit that should fit most people. We think you’ll be pleasantly surprised how well Custom Pilot Shirts fit. You won’t be disappointed with short arm lengths or short tails. We have designed our shirts to have a modern looking short sleeve (a little longer than most) and all of our shirts have long tails for a positive tuck. The tapered fit shirt has the same measurements as the relaxed fit shirt except the waist and bottom of the shirt are a little smaller. Check the tables after you measure yourself to see which fit may be right for you.

DETERMINING YOUR SHIRT SIZE

Our nominal shirt sizes are simply the actual collar size of the shirt. Please don’t just look at another pilot shirt or dress shirt and order that size. Just because you wear a specific size “XYZ Company” shirt doesn’t mean that’s your size in our shirts. We want to make sure your shirts fit correctly so follow these easy instructions before you order. 
It’s up to you but in your work environment you want a comfortable shirt. A tight-necked, tight fitting pilot shirt is simply not comfortable for the many conditions we face. We recommend getting a collar size that is at least 1 inch larger than your actual neck size. A collar size of ½ inch larger than your neck size can be ordered but will feel tight  and may not be very comfortable under all conditions. You can actually wear a shirt that has a collar size up to 1 ½ inches larger than your neck because the tie will take up some slack and still appear normal.
The shirt’s collar size determines the rest of the shirt measurements including the shirt’s shoulder, chest, and waist (stomach) measurements. The collar size of our shirts are in inches and measured from the center of the top button to the far end of its button hole. Find your correct size by either taking a comfortable shirt and forget what the tag says and measure it from button to hole or by measuring your neck with a cloth measuring tape and add at least 1 inch for comfort. This is your collar size but don’t stop there and order. Now measure your chest and stomach at the largest point (around your belly button) and compare the numbers in the charts. If you won’t fit into our shirts up to 1 ½ inches (collar size) bigger than your actual neck measurement we don’t recommend you order standard fit shirts. You should consider our custom fit shirts.


EASY SIZE INSTRUCTIONS
(Follow these instructions before you order)

Take these 3 measurements of yourself and write them down:
Neck Size (measure where your collar lays)





Chest Size (measure just under your armpits)


Stomach Size (measure around your belly button)


Compare the table data to the collar size that is 1 inch greater than your neck size.
You can get a shirt collar size that is as small as ½ inch larger than your neck size (may be a bit tight) or up to 1 ½ inches larger than your neck size (may be a bit loose).
