Shirts by Style
Sizes and Measurements, this is for Charlie Harper Collection & Bowling style shirts ONLY

Bowling style shirts by design are intended to be bigger and more loose than say a "dress" shirt.
To ensure the correct sizing for your shirt there are two basic methods.

Method 1. Measure your actual chest, raise your arms and run the tape around your chest just under your arms. You then ADD 4 inches for a standard loose fit or ADD 6 inches if you like a more room.

Method 2. Take a leisure shirt you already own that fits you comfortably, close the buttons, lay it on a flat surface. DO NOT use  any shirt with stretch fabric or a formal shirt usually worn with a tie.
Measure it from side to side just under the arms, then double the result. Example: side to side = 23 inches then x 2 = 46 and that would be the size to order.

The inch to centermeter values are approximate for guidance, the letter sizing stated is purely an approximate guide and should not be relied on as letter sizing varies too much.
SIZES STATED WITHIN THIS WEBSITE GIVE THE ACTUAL SHIRT GARMENT SIZE NOT YOUR BODY SIZE.
WE CAN ONLY MAKE WHAT YOU TELL US TO MAKE, ORDER A SIZE 46 INCH SHIRT AND YOU WILL RECEIVE A SHIRT THAT MEASURES 46 INCHES, WE DON'T ASSUME, GUESS OR INTERPRET IT TO MEAN SOMETHING ELSE AND
YOU SHOULDN'T EITHER.
ALWAYS CHECK YOUR SIZE !!!
Please remember the size you are ordering is the actual finished shirt size NOT your body size.
The above chart is based on the shirt being 4 inches bigger than your actual chest measurement.
If you like a more loose fitting ADD 6 inches to your chest measurement to get the shirt ORDER size.
Letter sizing ?
The letter sizing system of L XL etc is very unreliable, it can vary too much by who made it and even more by which country you are in.

To avoid any possible mistakes we only use
ACTUAL GARMENT MEASUREMENT.
If you are unsure by all means email us and we'll do our best to assist you.

Measuring for a Custom size shirt.

If you want to reproduce the size of a shirt you already own that fits you just the way you like it, just follow these simple instructions.

Take the shirt and close the buttons down the front.

Chest:
Lay it on a flat surface, preferably hard, like a table or the floor.
Smooth the fabric out so there are no wrinkles or creases,(don't stretch it!)

Measure it from side to side, just under the arms. Note the measurement.
Colours will often display differently on a variety of devices/monitors, therefore all colours should be taken as indicative and may differ from the actual garment received.
