    Thanks a lot. I've never tried a Milano made in Italy. Do you mean to say that the Italian Milano fit is different from the USA Milano?

    Which is also the reason why I'm undecided, this is slightly big but not too big... Guess taking to the tailors 1st to see how he thinks before I decide if I want to keep

    BB 1818 made in Italy Milano definitely fits differently than the made in China Milano sportscoat (made in China ones slimmer), no experience with the made in US Milano (does that exist? as suits/sportscoatsportscoat, guess Gooden Fleece?)

    Yes, they definitely fit differently. The USA Milano ran slightly larger, had more closed quarters, more wadding in the sleeve head and did not sit well on my shoulders. They have revamped the fit made in the USA last fall and the shoulders are much better and it fits closer to the Italian now, but I still prefer the Italian made fit. Thailand made isn't too far off Italian for me but it tends to run shorter, I usually go with a 38R and shorten the sleeves. Made in China fit (the washed lambswool last year was one) has a hit and miss fit and I tend to avoid it.

    So, end up returning it, sizing still not quite right, I wish they made 36 in the Natural Craftsmanship collection...

    Several of the classic Peal (C&J) styles are on sale for $389, which is the lowest price I've seen in quite a while, especially given how much the MSRP has risen in the past few years. For some styles, there is a good run of sizes; for others, it's slim pickings. But it's worth a look.
