    Significance and Use

    The use of the body measurement information in Tables 1 and 2 will assist manufacturers in developing patterns and garments that are consistent with the current anthropometric characteristics of the population of interest. This practice should in turn reduce or minimize consumer confusion and dissatisfaction related to apparel sizing. (Also refer to ISO 3635 Size Designation Procedures.)

    Three-dimensional avatars depicting each of the mature mens sizes in short, regular and tall, were created by Alvanon, Inc. and included in this standard to assist manufacturers in visualizing the posture, shape, and proportions generated by the measurements charts in the accompanying Tables. (Avatar 1-6) See Figs. 1-3.

    1. Scope

    1.1 These tables list body measurements of mature male figure type, age 35 and older, sizes 34 through 52 in Short, Regular, and Tall. Although these are body measurements, they can be used as a baseline in designing apparel for Mature Men in this size range when considering such factors as fabric type, ease for body movement, styling, and fit.

    1.2 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.

    1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
