nope. keep curating!
any details on which brands are on the special discount and which are for sale at cost?
Not true about sleeveless. FYI, Will at A Suitable Wardrobe offered a sweater vest a year or two ago. I tried to copy and paste image but didn't take.
I simply said that I don't know that IM actually makes those.
Great to know that they do and that other stores want to buy them.
Finally got around to measuring some of my sport coats to gauge fit of the Cantarelli coats. Here are the average numbers I came up with.
These numbers are taken from a bespoke coat, a Zegna suit coat (52, though heavily tailored around the waist), and two other Italian sport coats (52, also tailored for waist suppression). Based on the size and fit numbers on NMWA, it looks like the Cantarelli in the 52 might be the best compromise for my shoulders?
interesting, i too have a 52 zegna heavily tailored
The 52 was too big for me but you could be ok with it.
I'd say either gamble with one size and it's easy to exchange. or get both and send one back once you're sure.
I have a couple of Oliver Spencer jackets all in size 42 - would this be equivalent to an L in the Peveril jacket?
Was there ever a question about gregs advice?
Edouard, I'm curious for comparison's sake, what are your chest and shoulder measurements on your "benchmark" coat? I'll probably order two, but thought I'd ask as I examine those shots you took again.
FWIW, I'm 5'10", "around" 175 lbs., and wear EU50 in almost all makes. I can wear EU48 in some makes that run larger (most notably Canali). Unless Malat's upper body is very unusual, I'm guessing the 50 will fit best.
I agree, that should be the case, though I think my upper arms, shoulders and lats have always ruled me out of the EU50. I guess I have an unusual upper body (also known as "beach" muscles, from years of playing shortstop
Just looking at NMWA measurements for the EU50, it seems that it is going to be a tight squeeze across the shoulders at 45cm. I'll probably order both tomorrow and post the results when they arrive.
Here is a brief story I did about Greg for my blog based upon a recent interview. I hope you enjoy it.
Just took a quick peek and will read properly a little later. Looking forward to it.
my new benchmark coat is the Formosa 48 that fit on absolutely perfectly.
It's 106 & 46.
I'm curious whether the Inis Meain Pub Jacket is more like quasi-outerwear with a tailored cut, vs. a chunky cardigan with superficial jacket detailing. Are any owners willing to share their experiences?
