I think the number you are referring to as chest size is actually the neck size. Virtually every dress shirt Yoox sells that has a single number (as opposed to saying "S", "M", or "L") as their size would be referring to neck size. In the past, a shirt that said 39 (cm) would say 15.5 for the US. 39 cm ~ 15.5 in. This is the circumference of the collar. This is normal practice for dress shirts. In fact, many shirts would show something like 39/15.5 on the tag.In...
No, that's not what I mean. Dress shirts are sold by neck size. For example, when you see 39 (cm), that means the neck actually measures 39 cm around. If you convert that to inches, it is a little over 15.3, or approximately 15 1/2.So 38 cm = 15 US, 39 = 15.5 US, 40 = 16 US, etc...What they are doing is taking dress shirts and converting them to suit sizes. A 50 EU/40 US suit is the chest measurement of the wearer. Someone wearing a 40 suit might take a 15 or a 15.5...
Great point. They should take advantage of these MTOs and just copy the designs.Plus, the boot is on the 2 last, which to me is a more elegant, dressier look, because it narrow. Also the reason why I can't wear it.. Plus (my ramblings here): AE seems to make some odd design choices at times. They seem strangely drawn to some wackier designs and miss a lot of solid basics, IMO. It's been discussed here how men's wardrobe basics have not been covered well by AE in the...
I finally took a look at this. Not sure what they are doing - are they trying to equate shirt size to suit size? That's crazy.At least they still show the cm measurement on the size chart, so you can convert back to your neck size in inches (if you don't already know), and then look up their new "US" size.
That pic belongs to Cold Iron. Search this thread and you will find that he owns and knows about virtually every boot made by AE.
This is a brand new with tags Caruso suit in 40R (actually, 50R European, drop 7). This is a great workhorse or basic suit for someone needing a solid staple color in their closet. Caruso makes great suits. This suit has a flattering fit, European but not too slim.

That retro branding on the sole is cool. That's a great find. Congrats!
