Rail Shirts

Most of our rail shirts are made of 4 way stretch fabrics and fit measurements as follows: 

XSmall - bust 28-32, waist 25-28

Small - bust 30-34, waist 27-30

Medium - bust 34-39, waist 30-34

Large - bust 38 -42, waist 34-38, XLarge 40-44, waist 36-40

XXLarge bust 44-46, waist 38-42

If you have a youth that is wearing a 14-16, the XSmall ladies' rail shirts work great!


Custom orders

We suggest the following to ensure accurate measurements:

  • Do not try to measure yourself
  • Use a soft measuring tape (tailor tape)
  • Pull tape snug and ease off for measurement
  • Do not add or subtract from your actual measurement.  Exact measurements are necessary for construction.
  • Call with any questions regarding extra length or growth room

We will need the following measurements for each of our custom made items.
