The aim of this study is to establish anthropometric data for garment industries in Bahir Dar City for the design and manufacturing of clothing. Date were collected from nine Bahir Dar City tailors’ adult men measurement for shirt and trouser making. Totally, about 350 and 1000 measurements were collected for shirt and for trouser. Data purging process has been carried out before using it for developing standards. Data collected were analysed using percentile base for the 5th, 50th, and 95thpercentile. Based on the percentile, standard sizes for the two products were developed. Size charts are also established for both products. Visible difference has been observed on standards when compared with Italy and USA standards for the same measurements. This proved that further studies should be conducted in all regions and ethnic groups in Ethiopia for clothing design and beyond for other applications.
Key words: Anthropometry, clothing design, tailor, Bahir Dar, Ethiopia.
