So if I'm trying to buy clothes for a male friend, what measurements do I need him to tell me? Friend doesn't know, and I don't know either, because I have no clue about anything to do with clothes. I'm Not A Proper Girl.

Any dressmaking types or other sartiorial experts able to help me out here? Ideally, please tell me, so I can tell my friend, exactly how to obtain the relevant measurements, rather than just their names.

Oh, and GIP, while I'm at it. I've scanned the image from a random greetings card darcydodo picked out because it looks a lot like me. And there's a teapot!

Depends what 'type' of clothing :)
Indeed it does; I didn't want to include too much detail in my request for fear of giving too much away about the present. But thanks for those.

And I don't think we've met, though we're probably almost connected. Welcome!

Every now and then I go trolling friendsfriends lists.
It's a recursive process by which I find new/interesting LJs. People like karen2205 seem to act as 'nodal points' within the LJ community.

Yay, friendsfriends is fun. And karen2205 is indeed exceptionally well-connected. (I was at the same college as her at Oxford, incidentally.)
