      6′ Heavy Build – 6’+ Average Build = X-Large

      Please supply the following measurements if you would like us to confirm your size.

      Neck size:
      Head size:
      Eye to chin length:

      (most people know their height)
      (most people know their weight)
      Neck Size:
      Using piece of cotton or string, measure the circumference around the neck. use a ruler to determine the length of string. This is the neck circumference. Easier still check your shirt size.
      Head size (AKA Hat Size):
      Using piece of cotton or string, measure the circumference around the head. use a ruler to determine the length of string. This is the head or hat size circumference.
      Eye to Chin:
      Take a piece of string and place it between the eyes on the top of the nose bridge, run the string over the tip of your nose and down to just under the chin. This is the eye to chin length.

      Hope this helps!
