Looks perfect where it counts. Slimming the waist will be simple and make it very flattering.Received my first Anglo Italian RTW jacket just before Xmas and I’m pretty impressed. I bought a pair of their C&J loafers last year but they didn’t work out for my wide feet, and their balmacaan raincoat earlier this year which I love, but I’d yet to try their tailoring.
The cut is full, with quite a bit of room in the chest and waist but I like it. The waist is a bit too roomy (ironic given that’s normally a bit slim for me in RTW) but nothing the tailor can’t amend. It’s full canvas, with a bit of handwork. I’m not overly concerned with that kind of thing but, for anyone that is, you get quite a lot of bang for your buck.
I really like the cloth. It’s spongey and tactile, as you’d expect. I’d actually ordered a swatch of it last year and had intended to have a jacket made up in it but my tailor persuaded me to go with something from a different bunch and I always kind of regretted it.
I’d left it a bit late to order for Xmas (it’s a present from my wife, who wanted me to have it on the day), but I emailed and Jake was very helpful, ensuring it was shipped in time, and was also really helpful on questions of fit.
Given the fullness of the cut, I’ve also ordered a size down, which I’m yet to receive, but I’m fairly confident this is the right size for me with some tweaks.
Giving serious consideration to their MTM programme next, if I’m able to get down to London in 2021.
