Question on italian sizes

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a question on Italian sizes. I am somewhere between a M and a Large. I wear, for example a 42 suit with sometimes a bit taken in, but not much. I wear 16 dress shirts and my waist is about 35. I was going to order some nice Zegna cotton sweaters but was wondering if a 52 or a 50 would be better, given that I can't walk in the store and try them on. Anyone have any advice?

A European size 50 is equivalent to a US size 40;likewise, a European size 52 is equivalent to a US size 42.Which size best fits you depends on the fit of the sweater.Is it oversized, or is it more tapered to the body?

Zegna runs true to size. Unless you want it snug, I'd go with the 52. Are you getting it from their web site, or one of the boutiques? Perhaps trying one on at a store nearby would give you an idea as to size vs. fit. If I can help you locate a store that carries Zegna near you, let me know.
