Help with Measuring

Our online service is trusted and recommended by personnel and regiments throughout UK and with over 120 Years of combined experience in military tailoring and 15 years successfully trading online, we have found our self measure service to be a truly reliable way for our customers to receive high quality made to measure garments at their convenience. Because we deal direct with our customers through our online service we are able to offer the premium quality tailored uniforms that British Army officers expect but with significant savings over traditional visiting tailors.


Self Measure


Our uniforms are all hand-made in our workshop in Yorkshire and we are confident you will not find a better service. Please follow the instructions carefully as measurements taken may not be the same as standard shop bought clothing.


Our extremely experienced team can usually spot any mistakes in supplied measurements and will contact you for clarification.


If you are still concerned about taking your own measurements and would like to visit us for measuring please call us on 0113 2889944 during office hours to make an appointment with us at our Leeds factory. There is a £20.00 surcharge for this service.

All our uniforms are covered by our 30 Day No-Quibble Guarantee* so in the unlikely event you are not completely satisfied with your uniform we promise to make any alterations you require free of charge within 30 days of receipt of your uniform.
