In charge of an event where you want to hand out shirts to a lot of people but don’t know everyone’s sizes? The following shirt size guidelines can help you buy the correct number of each size when you don’t know each person’s actual size. There is also different guidance for men’s and women’s sizes and for polo shirts, woven (button down) shirts and even outerwear.
Buying for Men: Any style listed as Adult are sized for men. Adult Golf-cut styles generally offer a better fit for beefier male builds.
Buying for Ladies: Styles listed as Ladies’ are women’s sizes. If the women on your team prefer a Men’s or Adult style, select one size smaller than what they would wear in Ladies’ sizes.
Buying for Groups: Use the charts below for a general percentage to help you determine how many shirts in each size you need when buying bulk shirt orders for a group.
To calculate your buying of apparel and embroidery in bulk for different sizes, simply multiply the number of people in your group by the percentage in the chart for each size.
These are general guidelines only and should only be used as a starting point for determining necessary quantities. Your group sizes may vary.
