Waist Measurement

How to measure your WAIST for a custom made pair of TJ’s jeans

Measuring your best fitting jeans or a pair of jeans, shorts or trousers that fit in most places laid flat on a table.

It will help if you give us the brand and style you are measuring from but not absolutely necessary.

Measure from one side of the waistband to the other side. Make sure the front and back are even on top not the front lower than the back.

If you are measuring over a pair of stretch jeans be sure to take into account how much the jeans stretch when you put them on. It will help us to get your fit right if you give us the stretched measurement of the waist, hips and thigh.  It will also help if you order one of our stretch fabrics which has similar characteristics to your pair.

The total distance of this measurement multiplied by 2 is your waist measurement. If you want to make adjustments to this measurement because your jeans are too tight or too loose make the adjustment on the measurement you give us.

Please keep the measurements you take for each measurement as we will ask you to confirm them once you place an order.

Examples:
If you are using Inches: If you are using Centimeters
If you measured 15″ If you measured 41cm
and multiply by two x 2 and multiply by two x 2
Your waist is =30″ Your waist is =82cm
Measure from one side of the waistband to the other side. The total distance of this measurement multiplied by 2 is your waist measurement. Make adjustments to give you the fit you want
