    Bought some from the threedifferent sale recently (as many others did) pretty good value for the K jackets if you're into the more casual deconstructed sort of look

    Hm, I guess it shouldn't be a problem, though it might depend on what you are thinking to wear underneath: a sweater, maybe a rollneck, or just a simple shirt? I have a couple of grey blazers, some woolen/tweed aswell that i oftenly wear with dark/black jeans, or with corduroy and woolen trousers; I guess you can't go wrong when matching similar/neutral colours :)

    They appear to fit the mannequin but whether they fit you cannot be determined.

    If you are looking for a classic menswear fit, probably not. Boglioli isn't for you. But if you want something with a bit more of a fashionable fit, shorter, snug, trim, then Boglioli is a great choice.

    Gus is correct. I don't own any Boglioli, but even in their more structured
    models I have to go up a size, at least based on the models(s) I've tried
    at two different stores

    True. Any shop offering longs online would make a killing... [​IMG]

    I bought a K jacket a couple weeks ago, and it's pilling like crazy. 100% washed wool. I love the style and fabric, but I'm hesitant to buy more wool (or cashmere) K jackets because of the pilling. I don't mind it aesthetically, just uncertain if I'm going to rub a whole in it quickly.

    I've read that wool pilling dimishes over time; any truth to this?

    I know this thread has been dormant for a while but I had a question about 'Coat' vs 'K Jacket' fit - I was able to try on a K jacket at a store near where I live and it fit me perfectly. However having never tried the the 'Coat' fit, is there a big difference between the two? Is one looser or slimmer or are they quite similar?

    thanks

    K is noticeably shorter and slimmer than Coat from my experience.

    From my experience there is a wide fluctuation in how the K fits from style to style

    Hello

    Excuse me for my English, I am not a native speaker.

    Perhaps someone here could recognise this Boglioli Coat model? I have only 1 photo and measurements, and I am trying to decide, should I go to seller's town or not :)
    If someone has this model (this color or other), please could you make some photos?

    Hi folks,

    I spent too much time humming and haa-ing over a particular Boglioli K jacket from the boglioli online store. They have finally taken the winter section off their website and now that I've lost the opportunity to buy I've realised should have just gone for it.

    Does anyone know what happens to their unsold stock usually? I'm assuming it's unlikely it will ever resurface on their website. Is their any point in holding my breath for an appearance on yoox?


    Agh...why am i so indecisive

    Hi @G. Landi from your post a few years back it's obvious you know a lot about the brand. They are very much interested in growing their presence in the US and will open their first store in NY this summer. I met the guys from NY recently and they are hopeful about the demand for Boglioli's casual fine tailoring style. The unstructured, soft-shouldered, unlined jackets have always been what they are known for and more recently they've also strengthened pants (pleated and tapered) and knits for an effortless and relaxed total look.

    It's been a while they are only making K-Jacket, Dover and Coat three styles. They told me only K-Jackets are garment dyed and the other two are either yarn dyed or piece dyed. Because garment dyeing requires more complicated washing and dyeing after garments are made they are also more expensive. And it's the style they will continue to focus on. I've tried on all three styles from the recent seasons and my observation is K-Jackets use more interesting fabrics and have the unique garment-dyed look. The other two are also great just less adventurous. Regardless of the style the quality of fabric, tailoring and details are top notch.

    I didn't notice much difference in the fit. They really try to tailor the jackets to fit you comfortably without being restricting to achieve an effortless and relaxed feel. They prefer lightweight materials that drape well, from the shoulders to the collar to the chest. I find their size rather generous, at most a drop 6 and reach mid to lower crotch. I have a Dover double breasted jacket from ss15 made of slightly brushed silk. It fits like I just described.
