Gap Men’s clothes are true to size, but it’s best to take your feet length or body measurements.

Gap makes great casual shirts, Polo shirts, regular shirts, and collared shirts for men. Their lineup for women includes dress shirts. Anyway, to find the correct size for men’s tops, regardless of the urban style or your preferred select styles you just need to wrap an actual tape measure around your chest.

The customer service at Gap stores globally can help you fit into an exclusive size by also measuring and getting you the right size neck and sleeve.

To measure your chest yourself, lift your arms slightly and measure around your body (without a shirt is best), crossing over the fullest part of your chest.

Keep one finger between the tape and your body to ensure an accurate fit. If you don’t have a measuring tape, use a piece of string and hold it alongside a ruler.

Belt sizes are also based on waist measurements, but with a twist. The length of your belt has to be more than the size of your waist. The belt needs to go around you and still have some space left to hook onto itself. Gap has taken out all that trouble and made belts for each natural waist size.

Hat sizes are determined by head circumference. Find the widest part of our head and measure around it. This is usually the part that includes your forehead and the back of your head is always above the make of the neck.

Many experts suggest the “ear to ear” measurement to simplify things. Use a tape measure to measure the circumference of your head from ear to ear with a tape measure.
