How to measure:

Step 1. Put on lederhosen and use a flexible tape measure.

Step 3. Take the tape straight up the chest and over the left shoulder.

Step 4. Continue down the back towards the back right button on the waistband.

Step 5. Multiply this measurement in inches by 2.54 to convert to centimeters.

Step 6. Round up to the next suspender size. Example: 45” times 2.54 equals 114.3cm. Order size 115.
