ABOUT MEN'S SIZING
Orvis men's clothes are cut generously to accommodate an active country lifestyle. In addition, we build plenty of “wearing ease” in all our men's garments to ensure you will enjoy them for many years. We field-test all of them on associates, and we take into consideration how the clothing will be worn. For example, when we fit men's outerwear, we always size it with the appropriate layers beneath. That means you do not need to order a size up for a comfortable fit.
*Measured from the center of your back
HOW TO MEASURE
IN ALL INSTANCES, HOLD TAPE FIRM AND LEVEL, BUT NOT TIGHT.
a) Hat Sizes: Using a flexible/soft tape measure, start 1" above the ear. Follow around head staying 1" above the ear. This will give your most accurate reading. Then refer to the chart for size.
b) Neck Circumference: Wrap tape around to the base of your front neck and allow room for wearing comfort or measure the collar length of a favorite shirt.
c) Sleeve Length: From the center back of your neck with your arm slightly bent, follow the tape around to your wrist bone.
d) Chest: Wrap a tape measure evenly around the fullest part under your arms.
e) Waist: Wrap tape around your natural waistline, or where you actually wear your pants.
f) Seat/Hip: Standing with your feet together, measure around the fullest part of your hip (approx. 7-8" below the waist). Don’t forget to keep the tape level.
g) Inseam: Best taken from an existing pair of pants you like. Measure along the garment inseam from the crotch seam to the hem.
h) Glove Hand: Measure all the way around the flat part of your hand, excluding the thumb, and around the widest part at the knuckles. Use the chart above to convert this measurement in inches to your corresponding glove size.
Because size measurements can vary dramatically across the marketplace, it can be hard to know your best fit. Our Customer Service experts are here to help. Just chat, email, or call 888-235-9763 for the actual garment measurements of any item we sell.

Hat Sizes & Head Measurements
Find your hat size easily!
Using a cloth measuring tape, measure around your head at the point at which your hat normally rides (approximately 1” above your ear). If your measurement is between two hat sizes, order the larger size.
Your hat should fit securely, but not tightly—if you shake your head back and forth vigorously, the hat should stay put. The same goes for bending forward: if you bend down, your hat shouldn’t slip off. Make sure, though, that your hat doesn’t bind or pinch. If it does, we recommend you exchange it for the next larger size.
