Significance and Use
4.1 The use of the body measurement information in 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.)
4.2 Three-dimensional avatars depicting each of the big men sizes on certain measurements were created by Alvanon, Inc. and included in these tables to assist manufacturers in visualizing the posture, shape, and proportions generated by the measurements charts in .
1.1 These tables list body measurements of mature big men figure type sizes 46–64. Although these are body measurements, they can be used as a baseline in designing apparel for big men in this size range when considering such factors as fabric type ease for body movement, styling, and fit.
1.2 These tables list body measurements for the complete range of big men sizing.
1.3 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 nonconformance with the standard.
1.4 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.
