Altar Server Sticharion Sizing Guidelines

In order to establish your sticharion size according to the system used in our store, you will need to take two measurements while wearing a well-fitting dress shirt (all measurements in centimeters):

1. Measure from shoulder to shoulder, pulling the measuring tape tightly around your back. Start measuring at the point at which the two seams intersect on one shoulder, and end at the same point on the other shoulder. This measurement is the first number in the sizing designation, i.e. 54 / 145.

2. Measure down your back from the bottom of the collar all the way down to the bottom of your pant legs. This is the second number in the sizing designation, i.e. 54 / 145.

Please note that the sizing designations are approximate. The first number (shoulder measurement) should stay within a close range of your actual size in order to ensure a good fit, i.e. if your size is 54 then your vestment measurement should be in the range of 52-56. The second number (height measurement) has a bit more flexibility, although many servers prefer to err on the shorter side. For example, if your size is 145 then a vestment in the 140-145 range should be a good fit.
