I put them up for sale in this forum by the way. Here
I think this has been discussed before. The "problem" is that Yoox just reports the size on the tag, rather thangiving the actual measurements of the clothes. Italian manufacturers tend to report their trousers sizes in suit sizes, rather than the actual waist size in inches. I think the real
issue is that many fashion houses don't standardize their sizing. Some designers even size differently between seasons! Yoox could do better by actually providing measurements, although this may not be feasible given their huge inventory. They are
, however, accurate about what the labels say. The problem is that a IT46/US36 for Adriano & Sons may be equivalent to a IT48/US38 for Marni or a IT50/US40 for Comme des Garcons...
