SLEEVE LENGTH

Find the spot where the shoulder meets the arm. This is where a sleeve seam would normally sit. Measure from this point down along the arm and end just above the first knuckle of your thumb, making sure your arms are relaxed by your sides. It is better to make this measurement a bit longer than a bit too short.

SHIRT LENGTH

Place the tape where the shoulder and neck seams meet. From this point measure straight downwards to the point where you want the shirt to end, usually around the thumb point.
