How to measure a mens jumper


Buying the right jumper can be a tricky job. Particularly when you’re buying one-of-a-kind cashmere. A medium jumper from one brand might be a large from another… but there’s one system that makes life so much easier and all you need is a measuring tape. If you want to learn your size along the way, get one of your favourite fitting jumpers and follow the Nearly New Cashmere Co. tips on how to measure a men’s cashmere jumper.

First things first 

Lay your jumper flat on a hard top table so your jumper isn’t stretched out when you lay it down (might get a shock otherwise!).

Chest Measurement 

With your measuring tape measure in inches from the seam of one armpit to the other. Double the measurement and this is the chest size.

Back Length 

Measure from the top of the back of the jumper all the way down to the bottom hem. This is the back length of the jumper.

Arm Length

To measure the arm length of the jumper measure from the top of the shoulder seam and down the arm to the cuff. This is the arm length of the jumper.

It's that simple...

That’s all you need to know to measure you jumper correctly. When buying from us make sure to read the description so you know you’re getting the right size. With other brands you’ll also be able to have a look at their size guides to get the perfect fit.
