Frequently Asked Questions
How do I take my measurements?
Please keep in mind that our sizing chart is based on flexed measurements.
To take your body measurements, you will need a flexible tape measure that you can wrap around your biceps and chest (or, if you want to go old school, you can wrap a string and then measure it against a straight rule).
Biceps – Measure at its largest girth flexed with arm bent.
Chest– Measure at its largest girth flexed with “lats” spread.
It may be easier if you have a second set of hands to help you out.
How do I know if a Bradley Allen will fit me?
Bradley Allen Dress Apparel was engineered specifically for the bodybuilder physique: Wide shoulders, large arms, small waist. Whether you’re into bodybuilding, cross-fit, MMA, or any other sport that has toned your body into that “V” shape, our shirts are designed for you.
Our Fit Features show you the elements that make a Bradley Allen fit better than any other dress shirt. With more room up top, and a tapered waist, you won’t have to wear a boxy 4XL dress shirt anymore.
Check out our SIZE GUIDE for specific measurement guidelines.
I need to wear a tie with my shirt, what are the neck measurements?
Middle Weight – 16.5″
