Oh you originally said size 38 had a 43" chest... you just linked to a 39/40, which is correct. We only have handful of Napoli model suits in London which are not online and are being transferred to the USA next week. They are almost all charcoal except for a navy in 38R.
Where do you see the chest of a 38 measuring 43"? (Link?) The chest measurement of a garment is always 2-4" larger than the chest size it is intended to fit to allow for movement and factoring in the fabric and interlining. The Napol suiti has a different shoulder than the Classico with a softer shoulder pad and slightly wider shoulder and a more suppressed waist and slimmer trousers (which we can switch for you). Please note the Napoli sport jackets have a soft...
The Maestro was not a slim fit... the Lucente was the original slim fit which ebolved to the Granoro which then evolved to what is now the Classico II, so that's the one you want!
Sorry no navy Napoli in 40R... we have one in charcoal, but otherwise for navy 40R it's just the Classico II.
What size Napoli were you looking for in the suit? I have a few here in London that aren't online that I was planning to transfer over to the US. Mostly charcoal in a few sizes and one navy I believe...
Woops yes also the 2 and the 3 roll 2.5 are the same cut.
Yes - I'm headed to Biella again next week to look at Spring fabrics!
I'm kind of predictable, so for trousers the obvious choice would be charcoal, but if you're daring you can go for a nice pair of brick red/rust!
As an aside, I paid a visit to the Boggi shop in Sloan Square earlier this week and tried on several jackets. All of them were probably a good full 1" shorter than my jackets and they still covered the seat and looked great to me. Very Italian - not for everyone, but I do get inspiration from the likes of Boggi. As I may have mentioned before, I think I'm going to make my lapels slightly wider either via a new model or existing model. We'll see...
The suit jackets modeled above are the Napoli model but with a structured shoulder. The Benjamin sport coats are the same exact cut but have a natural shoulder, so for all intensive purposes they are pretty much the same cut - just a different shoulder.I'm looking forward to seeing some of you post pics of yourselves in the sport jackets!
