 Thanks for the heads up, very impressed with the site. Photos are fantastic, one of the bests i´ve seen in ecommerce by far, well done marcus.

 

 Anyone knows if should i size down in the Marcus eidos ragosta field jacket? Normally i use (augusto, primo) size 48, but i´m considering to purchase size 46 for both casual and formal look (with suit underneath), but not sure if it will be too tight. Also i own the nmwa FW casentino  coat in size 46 and it´s ok for both purposes, feeling in the limit of tightness with suit

Free FedEx int'l shipping from Marcus Malmborg, too - very impressive.

And we are live at UNIONMADE.

I believe there are a few more things trickling in but this is a good introduction.

Some good stuff there! Like the terry cotton Gianni and the long sleeve wide neck tee. And they have my suit as a jacket http://unionmadegoods.com/product/eidos-silk-wool-shirt-blazer-in-navy/ The fabric on this is insane! Buy immediately!

Definitely not a style to size down on. If anything I'd say size up if you are planning to wear over tailoring.

I really like the wool cardigan at Unionmade. I wear my cotton SS16 version all the time. I took a large in the cotton version (slouchy fit). @NickPollica I assume I need the same in wool version?

Unionmade stuff is beautiful. Is there a typo on the indigo henley? $225? If that ever made it to sale, I'd put myself inside of it.

This brings up a question I have had for long time. Why is it difficult to make the sizing consistent (at least within the same brand/line) so that let's say if I am regular Eu50, Eur52 or Eur54, I can just pick that size and not have to guess if say Tenero vs Lorenzo vs Tipo it will work in specific size or not. Additionally that would give the buyer an idea of how the garment was meant to fit or to be worn (loose or tight) by its creator and not the sale staff.

 

Most vendors will not provide the measurement and even those that do often are not accurate. just a thought.

And that's just one factor.

Adding on to that, it also becomes a question of proportions. If a 48R was going to fit the same across the spectrum it would need the same ratio for chest/shoulder/waist measurements. If you were to standardize those measurements and the ratios between them you would wind up with one universal cut and the only real difference would be number of buttons or shoulder expression.

I suppose this has an appeal in and of itself, but it would eliminate the existence of different cuts for different body types. Often when we talk about sizing up or sizing down we are usually accommodating some body measurement that is outside the standard mean.

Finally, in the case of outerwear, it becomes hard to judge because the designer/brand may envision the piece being worn one way while the customer envisions another. Outerwear has so much to do with layering, etc. that it can be very hard to create one universally accepted size.

I have probably put more thought into this than is really necessary, but it was a slow day at work shog[1].gif

I'd keep the same size.

Thanks. The pricing on the indigo knits is due to a combination of factors. First, the fabric we are using is mostly Japanese yarn dyed natural (not synthetic) indigo, like you would find at 45rpm. This doesn't run cheap (about as much per yard as many of the loro piana tailoring fabrics we use in the collection). Secondly, there is a cost inherent to making things in Italy that I just can't get around. We obviously try to make our garments worth it by designing them with different details from what else is out there but I can understand how $225 for a cotton henley can be a bit jarring.

I don't plan to layer field jacket so in same size as suit will always be too big (and possibly still too big depends on if it's layer over jacket or sweater). I'm too short to play with the loose fitting most of the time...(it can work but if it's loose fit length need to be shorter as well which is generally not the case at 36 US short suit size)

If you're talking about the Ragosta then I'd really advise against sizing down this season. The fit was conpletely overhauled this season. It is shorter and has substantially more narrow shoulders.

Hey All, would an L or XL Lupo be best for a 41" chest?

I'm of similar size and take L for a more of a fitted look.
