    Which Marcello did you get? As far as I recall they came out a bit different with regard to sizing, though they were all indeed on the slim side. I picked up the guncheck Marcello in a size 40 - and ordered a size 38 (long - but that shouldn't affect the chest/shoulder dimensions) in the previous round of FF jackets and am very happy with the fit. Now to decide what to get this time ready for winter ...

    Man, that Donegal is a sweet fabric! However, that sale you guys have been running cleared me out, and I don't know if I should...

    How do the 1" size increments work? Does it just increase the chest of the lower even size by a total of 1" (so .5" on the size chart)? I'm specifically wondering about the difference between the 37 and the 36.

    I have the Linen Navy Glen Plaid Marcello. I'm guessing I'd probably go 38R if I did order an FF jacket then. Thank you Pekingman

    Hi Mike et all...

    I'd greatly appreciate some advice on sizing.

    The LBM cotton fits me great in 38R. Also I have a Napoli in duck canvas that fits well in 38R - nice and slim fit.

    I have had a Napoli Hopsack in 38R that was a bit too small in the shoulders/chest. I also tried on the Napoli 38R seersucker and it was also a touch small in chest/shoulders.

    What size should I order for the FF in the Daltrey or Weller models you're offering?

    I suspect 39R might be safe if the fit is similar as 38R seems to be hit or miss with me.

    I have a sizing question on the jackets. I usually get 38S, which is a good length in the body, sleeves and a good fit in the chest. But the shoulders are always a little wide. I'm wondering if I went down to a 37R, maybe the shoulders would fit better and I might be able to have a tailor let out the fabric a bit so I could button the jacket comfortably.

    Finally, if I did that, would the fabric show a seam in the back, the way some fabrics do when you let out the waist in a pair of pants? (I'm eyeing the Harris tweed, which I'd think would disguise that sort of work better than most).

    Edit: After studying the measuring charts again, it doesn't look like sizing down would make sense.

    I'd go 39 mostly because these are fall/winter wear jackets and the coats you mentioned above are all spring summer. We wear less underneath in a Spring/summer coat and we tend to be slimmer during the warmer months from being outside and walking a bit more where in the fall and winter we tend to put on a few pounds.



    I wouldn't wprry about anything showing with any of these fabrics. It generally is an issue with cotton, wool tends not to have this issue.

    That's a good point Rob. I often have a light merino sweater and dress shirt underneath as it gets in the colder months so 38 would get quite snug

    How does special sizing work for trousers? For instance if I'm a 35, do they take a 36 and take in an inch or a 34 and let loose an inch? I ask since the pant measurements for the knees and cuffs will be different, depending on the size they use to alter.

    FF sport coats look nice
    Unfortunately don't have the funds ATM but hopefully in a few months they're offered again

    For the FF Jackets, is the Napoli completely unstructured OR is it a soft shoulder with minimal padding? Sizing would be the same as Daltrey and Weller? Thank you.

    Mike can correct me but I think with an odd size all the measures will be split. So the knees and the cuffs on a 35 will be between what a 34 and 36 are.

    Will the Epaulet Jackets in the FF have functional cuffs?
