lorenzini shirts for 15.75 guys... - Page 2

post #16 of 26
In NYC, I get charged $25. The guy does it from the shoulder and he does a great job, but the $25 adds up if you bring in a handful of shirts.

The Lorenzinis are not going to be very slim fit. You are most definitely going to need to get it altered if you are fairly skinny. I have a 38cm shirt (this is the neck size) and it is big and kind of boxy on me (38" chest 32" waist). The plus is that the sleeves are long, but what is funny is that they are too long!

Thanks for the heads up on the fit in the body, I thought Lorenzini's would be a bit slimmer for the European market. I am not super skinny, medium build 41" chest, 32" waist but I definetely prefer a more tailored look. I have a tailor that does most of my work but never had to have sleeves done before plus theres a couple shirts that need to be taken in on the sides anyways, I'll ask the cost for sleeves. Will be worth a looksee to see if there is anything I like in the lot and make a judgement call based on how much work would have to be done I suppose and if there are any patterns/colors I like. I have so much trouble finding the slim type of shirts I want in the simple solids stripes that I prefer.

What am I missing here? 32" waist is pretty skinny for a RTW shirt, no? (I feel fat)

Haha, sorry. That was misleading. MY chest is 38" and MY waist is 32". I'm not sure what the exact measurements on my shirt is as it is in my car (taking it to the tailor tomorrow) and I don't feel like running out and getting it right now. I'll edit in the measurements later though.

I feel you on this... I've pretty much given up on it. Though if I were you I would give RL Custom-Fit 15.5"/M a try. I recently found a bunch of them on sale at a department store (Marshall Fields) for $20-40, and they retail for ~$70. If you go to a Polo outlet store they will cost even less I'm sure or they will have a 2 for $80 deal or something like that. They fit me well in the waist although the chest and the arms are a bit big - they will probably fit you well though since you are probably a little bigger than me.

They are single needle stitched, but the buttons are plastic and the cuffs have 2 buttons for adjusting sleeve length. You can just take one of the buttons off though if you don't like this look.

I think the Lorenzini fit is all over the map. I have several that are slim fitting, though I've heard others say here that they can be blousy.

I'm possibly also interested but I need the +3 sleeves. So please post the sleeve length.

guys i'll get some pix today. it'll just be on the hanger as that's how they came. i'm thinking of around 55 each just to clear them out. every one of them (one is actually an Alex Mocciola shirt from korshak) are 36 to 37 except the Alex which is 16/34
