When I made a single-breasted three-piece suit for my
husband I measured:
Basic:
Chest
Waist
Hip
Side-to-side across his belly

Pants:
Length, left waist to floor at side seam (with dress shoes
on)
Length, right waist to floor at side seam
Inseam length
Right thigh
Left thigh
Right knee
Left knee

Jacket:
Neck
Jacket sleeve length from C1 to wrist, left arm
Jacket sleeve length from C1 to wrist, right arm
Bicep, right
Bicep, left
Right elbow, flexed
Left Elbow, flexed
Jacket Back length, C1 to waist
Jacket Back length, C1 to bottom of jacket
Jacket Front length, neck to waist
Jacket Front length, neck to bottom of jacket
Tip of left shoulder to CF waist
Tip of right shoulder to CF waist
Width of back, side to side 5" below the neck

Then we decided where he wanted the first (top) front button
on a two-button jacket, how wide he wanted the lapels,
whether a notch or v-shaped collar notch, how many and where
the inside jacket pockets would go, how many sleeve vent
buttons, how many back vents on the jacket.

Pleated or flat front pants, the shape of the pants front
and back pockets, which side would have an inside-the-pocket
coin pocket, buttons or no on the back pockets, type of
lining for the inner thigh area, button or hook (or both)
for the waistband, where to place the suspender buttons, and
whether to add belt loops.  Also decided on that little
"dress on which side" issue.

For the vest, front length, back length, depth of armscye,
real welt pockets so he could use his grandfather's pocket
watch, how many buttons up the front, the type of buckle for
the back waist, black or red paisley for the back and
lining.

There were probably more I have forgotten.  I realize many
of these items are not strictly speaking "measurements," but
all were important decisions in making his suit exactly as
he wanted.
