Shoulder
Your shoulder measurement is the distance between the outer edges of each shoulder (shoulder seam). Take the measurement and round up your measurement to the nearest half inch.

Neck
Place the tape measure around your neck where the top of the collar goes. The tape measure should be flush with your neck, not too loose and not too tight.
