    Significance and Use

    4.1 The use of the body measurement information in Table 1 and Table 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).

    4.2 Three-dimensional avatars depicting each of the young men sizes 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 Table 1 and Table 2. (See Figs. 1-6.)

    1. Scope

    1.1 These tables list body measurements of young men figure type sizes 32-48. Although these are body measurements, they can be used as a baseline in designing apparel for young 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 young 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 are not necessarily exact equivalents; therefore, to ensure conformance with the standard, each system shall be used independently of the other, and values from the two systems shall not be combined.

    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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

    1.5 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
