    ASTM D6240 / D6240M

    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.
