MEASUREMENT GUIDE

The Uniform Sizing Form allows the store to order your uniforms according to your body measurements. You may go to a tailor to have your measurements taken, or you may have a friend help you with the use of a measuring tape.

In order for us to order your uniforms on time you must submit your Sizing Form no later than May 1, 2020 or within 5 days of being admitted. 

Each section below corresponds to a specific question on the Student Uniform Sizing Form. Please read this guide in order to help you understand how to take your body measurements correctly. You may also see a tailor for professional assistance.

You may also download and print a PDF version here to help you as you take your measurements. You may also take it to a professional tailor to be filled out.
