Here are measurements to my two button jacket size 52 (42R[us])
P2P = 22" (laying as flat as naturally can) 20" seam to seam.
S2S = 18.5" (front)
Length = ~28.75" (front, about center of shoulder to bottom)
Sleeve = ~25" (the seam measures 18" from armpit)
Hope this helps.
Thanks. A fairly standard measurement for SF is the length from the bottom of the collar to the bottom of the jacket in the back. Can you provide that measurement for your 42r?
During my last trip to Milano in February, I went to Il Salgagente outlet, there were plenty of LBM from last season for about 150-200 euros (mostly in cotton). I preffered to buy 2 Boglioli and a Corneliani, slightly more expensive.
The LBM are really short and slim, fine if you have a fit body.
I bought one of the LBMs with 55% polyester - there is a rather substantial chance it will be going back.
Kopped one in brown that I think might be moleskin. I'll probably return if it's not.
I got the jacket. Not moleskin, but it's a great woven cotton fabric with a soft hand. Unfortunately, it's too short for me. Length is 28.25
Selling it at cost here on the B&S. 3 days only, due to the Yoox return policy:

I'm a decent proponent of the L.B.M. 1911 soft jacket, I like the fit—I think if offers most forms a great silhouette.
I'm actually unloading 2 of mine since I can no longer fit into them (I've been slimming down)
