Good questions. Most of the pieces do come with drops specified on the internal size tag or paper sleeve tag. As for sleeve length: as long as it's not marked as short or long, then yes - standard sizing applies. The challenge with many d'Avenza jackets is that they don't (typically) come with sleeve buttons for finishing. You can't "match" the front buttons to sleeve buttons you buy from a supplier, so you'll need to replace the full set. It's not a big deal (it's about $25 bucks for excellent buttons, and about $10 to have the buttons sewn on). If you can find a d'Avenza jacket with buttons already in place (sewn on - including sleeve buttons), then you're in luck. D'Avenza used the strongest Chinese shank of silk. From The Guardian UK profile:Thank you very much for the fast response.
I see, so probably only look for jackets / sakkos for me. In the worst case i can wear a nice „tailored“ jacket and see how slim the pants may go.
Iam guessing d‘avenza Also writes on it, how long & „shaped“ it is with L / R etc. and the Drop ? Because my arms are also long .
As I guess the older ones does not come with drops indicated (newer does) have they all been the same sleeve length?
"The buttons of buffalo horn (deer horn is too weak, and less delicately patterned) are attached by a thick shank of Chinese silk, spun in Italy. They are designed to last the life of the garment."
