    I like the tweedy feel to a lot of it. A lot of it reminds me of something you'd see in the Andover Shop catalogue.

    Hard to tell about the cuts given the limited scope of the photographs, but I like the looks overall.


    Not really. The origins of the style are the same but the Andover Shop hews to a traditional
    even generous cut: very Ivy League. I've been there. Boggi is a contempo/faddish cut: trim and short.
    Also, Andover Shop tends toward heavyish hand loomed tweeds and the like. Not evident in
    Boggi Andover is style. Boggi is fashoion.

    Upon closer examination of the Boggi offereings, if you really like them, I think that
    you'd freak out at the Andover Shop.

    I purchasd a sport jacket from one of the many Boggi stores in Milan a few months ago. The fabric is Guabello super 130's which has a smooth hand and a slight sheen. Beautiful cloth. The price was 350 euros full retail. The fit is superb but VERY Italian. Form fitting, slim lines, lots of waist suppression, slim arms and high arm holes. Not for the portly man. Construction quality is a solid B+. Interlinings are fused but that's not always as bad as people make it out to be, if done correctly. Overall one of my favorite jackets. I get compliments on it all the time. I wish Boggi would open a store stateside.

    Bought a pair of trousers made of Angelico tasmanian wool and made in Romania for 100 USD (full price). Any idea who makes them ?

    I didn't want to resurrect an old thread, but since my question went unanswered in the quick question thread, I'm posting it here. Could someone tell me definitively how their sizes are? Would a Large correspond to an italian size 50 (ie relatively small)?

    50 Jacket? Normally Italian sizes a L is sized for a 40 " chest. Rarely a touch smaller. But can be a little bigger.

    That's normal Italian sizing.

    They just opened a store on Calle Serrano, on of the two main high-end shopping streets in Madrid. Although not everything there is high end. Massimo Dutti (Inditex) also has a shop there. And, actually, at a first look, Boggi reminded me a bit of Massimo Dutti.

    When thinking about it... I just checked a belt that I bought at an Italian airport shop a few years ago, and yes, it is a Boggi belt. Sorry to say that it is probably one of my crappiest belts. But I will check out the shop they got here to get a more complete idea, I guess that it is not fair to judge them by one single item.

    I was in Boggi store in Italy,i liked their style a lot,good quality and very good prices.But i went to their shop in Dubai and the prices were like triple time more expensive(same story with Harmont and Blaine) and they had not so many choices.When i'll go to Italy next time i'll definitely visit their shop.

    Sorry, outerwear.

    That's normal Italian sizing.


    Again, sorry for being unclear, I wasn't referring to the ches measurement, but rather the size. From my experience an italian size 50 is at least two sizes smaller than an "ordinary" 50 here in scandinavia. 40 inches souds right. Which brings me back to my question; is Boggis sizing "averagely italian"?

    It's typical northern Italian mid-market stuff. Quite a SF-friendly aesthetic. Not a bad shop at all for what it is.

    Hopefully this helps

    I have bought trousers and a down jacket from Boggi
    I found the trousers fit TTS as did the jacket, however I believe they had numbered sizes rather than S/M/L

    I can check the jacket again tonight to make sure

    Anyone?
    Their sizing is smaller than UK, in other words a large is small on me where most UK brands would be my size. I cannot confirm if this is true of everything they make.

    Andover Shop? Not really.
    Much too fashionable.
    Cut(s) at the Andover Shop are entirely different .
    Also, the Andover Shop is truly tweedy, not
    like this stuff.

    Seeing this thread reminds me how much I want TRINI's quilted blazer from Boggi. Frustrating. :brick:

    We just got BOGGI in HK, however the prices seem wildly overpriced compared to the online shop, can anyone verify the huge price diff?

    Their cotton blazers are $6500 HKD (830USD) and I tried on a denim shirt that was $1390 (178USD)

    Does anyone have an idea where to find measurements of Boggi suits online? I tried on a 50EU when I was in Italy that was too large but didn't think to try on the 48. It's probably too much of a risk to buy a suit from them without trying it on but there are just so few domestic options for shawl collar suits that I'm thinking of giving it a try.
