I myself am tall, slim, and have long arms, so I need a jacket to have a narrow torso and longer sleeves.
I have bought two Lardini jackets from yoox. The first was a cotton unlined, for Â£60 odd. The cut is really nice, it drapes well and the lapels have a lovely roll to them. Nothing special, but not tat. I always get compliments on it. The second is a cotton cashmere affair. In fact it's made from a beautiful fabric: Loro Piana Cashpima; which was a pleasant surprise. It cost Â£70; a steal. It is exquisite. The lapels roll sweetly, it hangs well, and the sleeves are just right. The lining is superb, it has some nice touches, i.e., half moon flaps under the armpits. It is really very well made, and half canvassed to boot. I am 6 foot tall and 154lbs, medium build and have long arms. I buy a 42 (IT52); both the jackets fit perfect. They are not cut too slim at the waist, say like a Piombo; however, they are not straight either. They fit relaxed at the waist, and have a subtle curve. From my experience of Lardini jackets, I'd recommend them to anyone. If you wait, and you're lucky, you can pick them up from yoox at next to nothing.
