Anyone own an Oxxford 1220 and a BB Fitz..

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Have read a few of the other threads about the OXXFORD 1220, but does anyone have a Brooks Brothers Fitzgerald to compare this suit to. Yes, I know they are in a totally different league, half canvas vs full canvas, hand work, etc, etc but I am just looking for an opinion on fit. BB Fitz and the RLBL both fit me really well.

Thanks.

From what I have seen of the 1220, the shape is vastly different from the other two. The shoulders are quite strong and measure a bit wide, and the chest is slim, but not RLBL slim. On my size 40, the typical measurements of a 1220 are 19" shoulders, 43" chest; conversely, RLBL is 18.25" shoulders and 41" chest.

Thanks. That's kind of the pictures I was getting... too bad considering they have a 36S on ebay for $800 right now... I can't even fit into the smallest of Oxxfords I guess.

Oxxford 1220 is not slim. With smaller sizes and some tailoring you can make Oxxford work for you, I believe. Also, I highly recommend guys who sell Oxxfords on ebay - frieschskys. Great service, insane shipping speed.

Isn't Oxxford 1220 a whole line of suits priced under the regular Oxxford stuff? If so, it doesn't refer to a particular model or cut.

I am not an expert. I've usually seen the 1220 being advertised as being modern/slim cut. Owning both 1220 and RLBL (44R for both). The RLBL is slightly slimmer fitting, but not by much. I didn't have any major alterations on either one (only sleeve length). I know my 1220 is 19.5" sh and 23" ch. Another great source for 1220's on ebay is topshelfapparel (also has a solid return policy).

Topshelfapparel is also a user on here under the name VMan.

The 1220 Line looks comparable to Zegna Milano. Still kind of full in the chest, but slimmer than the average sack.

Oxxford 1220 comes in only 2 models:

A Body which in a 40R has a 18 1/2" Point-Point
and
B Body which in a 40R has a 18 1/2" Point-Point but with a 1/2" fuller Chest.

Both are trim and a just a touch larger than RL Black

Do you happen to know what the Point-Point would be on a 36S? Thanks

Sorry these are incorrect, here are the current ones:

A: Point-Point= 18 3/4; 1/2 girth = 20 1/2; Length = 30 1/2
B: Point-Point= 19; 1/2 girth = 21; Length = 30 1/2; w/ 1/4 fuller armhole

Type A would be 17 3/4
Type B would be 18
