Measuring Guide

Welcome to the Franklin & Poe Measuring Guide!

This guide we will walk you through how we measure our clothing.

Please note:

  • We measure just about everything we receive and post it to each product page
  • We do not pull or stretch the denim, shirts, pants, etc while measuring
  • There may be variations in measurement depending on person measuring and how the garment is laid flat. If you are uncertain, please contact us and we will be happy to spot measure again!
  • Sometimes we receive multiple units of the same size. Measurements are generally indicative of one unit, so there may be variations between different units of the same size
  • We try to update our measurements as best as possible, sometimes we overlook a restock measurement. Again, please contact us if there are any issues or questions.

Without further ado:


How to measure a shirt:


We measure the chest directly across from seam to seam directly under the armpit.

In this example, we come to a measurement of 20" across in the chest.


We measure the length starting at the seam where the collar meets the shoulder straight down to the longest point at the bottom hem.

This shirt measures 27.5" in length


The sleeve is measured starting at the seam where the shoulder meets the sleeve straight to the end of the cuff

The length on these sleeves measure 24"


To measure the shoulder, start at the left top of where the shoulder meets the sleeve and extend straight across to the right side.

In this example, we come to a measurement of 18.25" in the shoulders
