What's the story with Borrelli sizing? The slacks seem to be so oddly ultraslim compared to the shirts. Shirts: They all seem to be cut rather full - - not as full as Brooks Brothers perhaps, but fuller than, e.g., Turnbull & Asser. They are miles away from being "slim" fit. Odd slacks/shorts: These are impossible for me to wear, it seems. I have tried on perhaps a dozen different Borrelli slacks and shorts and have found them to be incredibly slim fitting -- the waist is true to size, but the seat and legs are very, very slim. I normally wear a 38 waist, but I have been unable to wear even size 42 pant in Borrelli. I haven't ventured up into the 44 waist range, as the waist is ridiculously loose even with the 42. And, no, I don't have an "unbalanced" posterior. Incotex, Oxxford, Paul Stuart, H-F, Bill's, Levi's, etc. all fit me perfectly in size 38.... what gives? Coats/Suits: The blazers and suit jackets fit me perfectly in size 46R (though I normally wear 44L or 46L with most other makers). Does anyone have experience with Borrelli suit pants? Are they as slim as the odd pants/shorts?
