Another interesting question is how well our systems of measurement corresponds to the body shape of today’s men?
Measurement system of costumes based on the wearer’s chest measurement. A person with 96 cm chest size has size 48 on their Blazer, i.e. 96 divided by two. American and British manufacturers often measure in inch, which means that you get to take their European size and subtract by ten to get its size in inch. A blazer in European size 48 corresponds, therefore, size 38, according to hyperrestaurant.com.
Sometimes preceded the size of a number of different characters with different meanings. R (Regular), S (Short) and L (Long) is used to talk about kostymens length. B, C and D are used less frequently as a measure for different body shapes, where B is suitable for long and thin, (C) conventional and D for something heavier built people. If you look at the shiny label is often the term “Drop”, that tells you how much narrower the jacket’s waist to the chest measurement.

It may sound very logical, but many have probably experienced how bad measurement system works in practice. Not the least of which is located at the intersection of two sizes. Similarly, there is obviously a problem in starting chest measurement. Two people with the same chest dimensions can have very different proportions. Another problem is that the sizing system is based on measurements taken on soldiers during World War II.Although the dimensions are updated somewhat after the war, there are many who believe that the size scale is totally outdated and not adapted to body shape on today’s men.

Based on these measurements was created since a 3D model is the starting point in the brand’s sizing system. By carefully studying their prospective audience has Uman developed a scale from one to five, which not only takes into account the breast and waist like the conventional size scale, but also adapted to the garments must be better around such as the shoulders, arms and thighs.
