Place the tape measure around your bare neck, just below the Adam's apple, where your collar would typically button. Measure loosely enough for comfort. This is generally a number between 15 and 18. Dressshirts come in 1/2 inch increments from 14.5 to 18 and 1 inch increments from 19 to 22.
Place the tape measure at the base of your neck in back. Extend the tape over the broadest part of your shoulder and down the length of your arm to approximately 1"- 1 1/2" below the wrist bone.

Often, when a guy needs a larger size suit to accomadate a larger pant, the coat becomes very sloppy. The portly fit corrects this problem. Typical suits have a 6" drop, that is, if the jacket size is 46, the pant size is 40. A portly suit has a 2" drop, so a 46 coat comes with a 44" waist pant.
