INCLINE DEVICE TM

Measures the relationship of a customer’s neck to his back. This enables a coat collar to be positioned correctly; not too far forward causing a roll below the collar, or too far back causing a gap between the shirt collar and the coat collar. Also, this enables a coat to be balanced; front length to back length. Additionally, it is used to measure the prominence of a customer’s shoulder blades and the prominence of a customer’s seat.

RISE DEVICE TM

Measures the rise of a customer’s trousers. This enables trousers to be made with a rise based on the way a customer wears trousers. This method is accurate and without the awkwardness of talking some measurements for trousers.

SLEEVE DEVICE TM

Measures the coat sleeve inseam length. The coat armhole depth, and the way both of a customer’s arms hang naturally at the sides, have been considered in determining the measure. This enables coat sleeves to be made to the proper length; especially important for functional sleeve buttonholes.

The regular Sleeve Device is part of out "KIT" of Instruments. It has a coat sleeve Inseam measurement scale from 11" to 20 1/4". Clothiers who have customers with longer than normal arms, may substitute the X-Long Sleeve Device, at an additional cost, which has a measurement scale from 14" to 26 1/4".

INSEAM & DROP SHOULDER DEVICE TM

Measures the trousers inseam. Sometimes it is used for a potentially hard to fit customer, as a double check to confirm the measure derived from the Rise Device. This enables the inseam to be measured without awkwardness because of its 10 inch handle.

Measures a drop shoulder; one shoulder lower than the other shoulder at the collar. This is used as a platform for a customer to stand on. Together with the Retractable Metal Tape Measure and the Six Inch Ruler With Level, this method determines the drop shoulder amount; measuring from the floor to the shirt collar at the shirt yoke seam. Also, using the same 3 hand tools, will determine a customer's height.
