    Yes. The true three-buttons are cut with a relatively high gorge, it's very distinct from the three-roll-twos. Boglioli sizing is pretty inconsistent... you need a bit of luck! I find that they are a hair too short for me, plus a few other issues. Plus I am trying to focus on bespoke now.

    I find there's a horrible degree of cognitive dissonance with buying their stuff - their site makes their stuff look so great, as do so many of the #menswear crowd's pics but then you see their merchandise on Yoox and the like and it just doesn't look right at all and it really puts me off buying it as I've got no idea if it'll arrive and look horribly cheap

    I was wondering that too. The fact that they button all 3 buttons makes it tough to figure out what's really going on.

    Boglioli is high quality... it's just that Yoox and other discount retailers aren't putting enough into their lighting rigs to photograph the stuff properly.

    Bogliolo is one of the finest and Mr. Porter has it online as well.

    Just a heads up.

    The jacket arrived and it's a definite 3/2 roll. The photos are very misleading.

    Phenomenal value for the wool jackets. Have ordered a couple more. Functional cuffs so beware of sleeve alterations on check patterns.

    Part of the problem is that many of them are 3-roll-2, but they insist on buttoning the top button. It was never designed to be buttoned, and it causes the whole thing to sit funny.

    Got 2 Boglioli jackets recently, both 2 button...they fit better than my tailored linen jacket which cost a hell of a lot more.

    I sized up from 54 to 56 and can confirm that this is the way to go. They may fit TTS if you are built like Adrien Brody (which I'm definitely not).

    3 different seems very legit...they are just a bit slow (thorough?). Also, they used the cheapest possible shipping via UPS which means it took 9 days for my stuff to arrive. But Im happy to have my stuff and that it fits. A seriously good value.
