Big sizes are for full-waisted men of average height. They are cut fuller in the waist than garments from a department store or discount store. If you want a longer shirt-tail, look at the Tall sizes.

Generally speaking, tall sizes are for men over 6'2". However, many BIG men enjoy a longer shirt-tail and buy talls the next size larger. Since talls are not as full in the body, increase a size for a big man who wants the longer tail.

How to measure for a proper fit:

Chest --Measure under your arms and around the fullest part of your chest, keeping the tape straight across your back.

Waist -- Measure around the smallest part of your waistline.

Neck -- Measure around the base of your neck. Pull the tape tight enough for a shug but comfortable fit.

Sleeve -- Bend elbow and measure from center of neck (backside) to elbow and down to wrist.

Inseam -- Measure from crotch point to ankle bone.
