For Menswear and Kidswear, you need to measure your around chest and refer to the available size chart in the desired item page, as the size chart often varies based on the design and type of item you are opting for.
The size chart of each of the item category is based on the around chest/ bust measurement. Eg: If your around bust is 36 inches, you must select size 36 of the desired item, however, for Menswear and Kidswear, there are certain items which are worn a little loose and not body fitted.
Therefore, you must measure your around chest and look for the size chart on the item page and select the size which reflects your measured chest size. Eg: If size chart reflects chest size of 32 and then 34 while you measured yourself to be 32.5 inches, you must select the size reflecting chest size as 34 inches.
