I also picked one these up during the last sale - and am noticing the same thing. I thought it was just me but overall it's about 1 inch shorter in length then the MIA cashmere SC from past season. While the colour tones, texture all seem on point - I think I'm going to send back as the fit just seems a tad off.

I know, I'm returning it tomorrow, as alterations on making my other sportcoats fit close to perfect is costs the same as adding a sportcoat I'm not that excited about.

I have that chocolate check cashmere MIA and the fit was really amazing, just the sleeves had to be lengthened a bit.

Oh well.

Has anyone tried their MIA shirts? I am wondering whether their size is similar to their slim fit and if the fabrics are significantly better.

I have a Made in USA chambray and i have also tried on there oxford and yes the fabric is significantly better and they use better quality buttons , the fit is similiar to the slim fit shirts for those items.  A few months ago I bought there made in USA brown Paisley shirt in my normal size Large and it fit like a slim medium. So I'm guessing maybe the patterned made in USA shirts fit different from their solid oxford made in USA shirts.

I've been wanting to take some measurements for my own reference anyway, so here you go:

I just compared a pair of Davis chinos with a pair of USA suit pants, both size 29.

Davis chinos tagged size 29 waist measures 32" (3 inches larger than tagged).
Davis chinos tagged size 30 waist measures 33" (3 inches larger than tagged).
The USA suit pant tagged size 29 waist measures 31" (2 inches larger than tagged).
The Grant suit pant tagged size 30 waist measures 32" (2 inches larger than tagged).

The moral of the story is that the waist sizing of the Davis fit and Grant/USA suit fits are NOT the same; Davis is 3" larger than tagged whereas Grant & USA suit pants are 2" larger than tagged.

When I compare the Davis chinos in size 29 to the USA suit pants size 29, the legs on the suit pants range from approximately 0.25" to 0.5" larger when laid flat (or 0.5" to 1" larger in the leg when worn). This is as it should be - I don't believe you would want the suit pants fitting as slim as the chinos.

Hope that helps.

thanks for the input. I'm 30 in cm so guessing those would fit. but looking at it the pants do seem dressier. was looking for a pair of moleskin pants...
