Essential Tips for Success
• Do not try to take measurements yourself! An inaccurate measurement that may be off by only an inch may get you a tuxedo coat that’s one or two sizes too big or small. For the best fit, it is recommended that an experienced professional take your measurements.
• Direct your gentlemen to visit an Authorized Jim’s Formal Wear Retailer to have measurements taken (if possible). These stores have been trained to measure properly to ensure a great fitting tuxedo. If a JFW Retailer is not close, a professional tailor or menswear shop is certainly a good alternative. (Please be aware that some retailers may charge a small fee for measurement services).
• Current measurements are the most accurate! Even though a gentleman may have been measured for a tuxedo recently, measurements can and do change. It’s wise to be measured again.
• Measurements should be submitted at least four to six weeks before your formal affair.
