Menswear Grading

Menswear grading like all grading is a compromise. It can be very straightforward or it can be quite complex. Usually for grading just a few sizes a standard grade would be used, but if there are a lot of sizes then a more sophisticated grading method would be needed to ensure that the more extreme sizes do not become out of proportion.

While Menswear is on the whole less design orientated, with fewer variations in style there can be far more sizes involved. Classical mens tailoring traditionally has about eight sizes and may also come in short, regular and long making twenty four sizes in total. Styles may be slim fit, classic fit, athletic fit or corpulent fit. As men tend to get disproportionately big in the waist girth, the waist will need to be graded more than the chest or hip. The extra grade on the waist would tend to go on the front grade rather than being equally dispersed.

Mens off the peg jackets will generally have a deeper armhole than a Bespoke jacket as it has to fit a wider variety of sizes. This is especially true of jackets bought online as companies cant afford to have too many returns due to badly fitting garments.
