Sizing down with Canali

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hi all, allow me to start by saying that I've lurked about on this forum for a good bit of time and found it to be a wealth of knowledge for a relative newbie like me; many thanks for that.

 

On to my question-- I'll be attending my first black-tie event soon and have been in the market for a tuxedo. A few days ago I managed to find a nice canali (1 button, peak, no vents) online for a very reasonable price. However, when searching I underestimated my chest size and the tuxedo in question is only a 40r (whereas my chest measures roughly 41.5). I understand that Canali tends to cut their garments a bit roomier (especially considering that this one is a "modello 13710") so is it possible that I'd still be able to fit into the jacket? Is it worth pulling the trigger on?

 

Thanks again.

What is the return policy? If you're only out a few dollars to pay for return shipping, only you can decide what those few dollars mean to you. If you'd rather have the drink when going out, then save the few dollars.

I find Canali to be very roomy in the chest, so you might be fine depending on your build. I can't wear it because of length issues, but whenever I've tried it on, I've moved from a 40 to a 38 without issue. Even in the drop 8 model that I tried on, I still had room in the chest.

The seller offers free return shipping within 7 days of receiving the garment.

That's good to know because I ended up biting the bullet (the auction ended last night); it took damn near forever for a deal like it to surface, and I was ultimately unable to pass it up. My order was just shipped today so I'll update this thread once I actually have it in my hands.

Sounds like a 42 size which should fit you.

Canali measures differently depending on the drop.

Their 36R drop 6 measures closer to 38R, While their 38R drop 8 fits closer to 36R.
