ᐅ How to find the Correct Suit Jacket Sleeve Length?

A jacket's sleeve length is a crucial factor in deciding whether it fits your body properly. Here are some tips to help you determine the correct sleeve length for yourself.

The sleeve should end right at the point where your wrist begins or is slightly longer. Finding the correct sleeve length on a suit jacket is important to look polished and professional, so you might also consider taking your suit measurements by a tailor.

Here are some basic tips to help you determine the correct sleeve length for yourself:

  1. Start by measuring your arm from the shoulder joint to the desired cuff length. This is where you will want the sleeve of your jacket to end.
  2. Next, find the measurement of your arm circumference at its widest point. This is typically around the bicep muscle.
  3. Subtract the arm circumference from the arm’s length measurement to find the desired sleeve length.
  4. Finally, add 1/2 inch to the desired sleeve length to account for ease and movement. This is the sleeve length you will want to order when purchasing a suit jacket.


By following these simple steps, you can be sure that your suit jacket has the perfect sleeve length for your body type and frame.
