Yoox.com - long sizes in jackets?
I was just about to post the same question. This is one of the many reasons I hate Yoox.
For an example of a long, see this Sartoria Partenopea:
With new cropped styles, even known brands have become a complete crap shoot. And these "Samples" are unreturnable; so to me, they mean unsaleable.
I have had great luck with their shoes though.
Though I need a long in sport coats, I figure this outer jacket ought to be long enough, especially since it even features a waist draw cord. (rear view with button below image) I was tempted by the other Barbera linen sport coat, but it looks unconstructed and probably more cropped than their traditional coats, so that was not an acceptable gamble.
Also got a pair of orange! Replay sneakers for $30 and a Hollywood Milano baseball cap for $30 (clearly no bargain, but I liked the color).
Who knows, maybe this field jacket will turn up offered on here next September!
I have the same issue with Mr. Porter. It's impossible to buy suits or sportcoats from these sites because they refuse to acknowledge that many men need long sizes. Since when did a long size become unusual? These sites want to convince you that everyone's a regular now and that jackets should be worn shorter. Complete BS. They just dont want to stock long sizes. I have no problem finding longs in department stores in the US for brands like Zegna, Brioni, etc. There is no reason these virtual stores can't stock them as well. Until then, I'll take my business elsewhere.
