    Looks like a straight 3 button to me.

    It could be a 3/2.5.

    There's some rolling beneath the 3rd button.

    It's a Cantarelli (italian), might that help on determining it?

    It looks like the previous owner wore it (and at some point had it pressed) as a 3/2.5 and the seller didn't recognize this (which was silly of them). Further evidence of the seller's ignorance can be found in the buttoning of the bottom button.

    Well, it's from Yoox, so it have not been used before.

    In which case, I'm confused as to why they'd button the top button of a jacket that's been "rolled" at some point and as to why they'd button the bottom button of a...well...why they would button the bottom button at all.

    (Yoox will sell store display models, right?)

    All blazers, sportsjackets and suits on Yoox have all buttons buttoned on pictures. :S

    Looks like a 3 roll 2.


    To say that you probably never search through yoox...they have great ability to ruin the look of suit and jackets...

    By the way they sell items they get from worldwide stores in stocks, the big part are items that went unsold at the end of season, but they accept literally everything like old items, items without tags etc.
    They care only that garments have original inside labels / fabric composition and are not visibly used/damaged.

    Indeed. I have never searched through Yoox. Am I missing out on much?

    Isn't 3/2 roll mainly a North American thing? This is an Italian jacket, also Yoox is in Bologna, Italy.
    .

    I'm sure what they do, is just put it on the mannequin, do all the buttons up whatever it is, photograph it, and that's it. AFAICT Yoox is shifting thousands of garments, from hundreds of fashion houses. There's probably no time for elaborate, expensive and beautiful Ralph Lauren catalog style photoshoots.


    It's definitely end of season and old stock that they sell. I'm sure much of what they get is one offs as well, so items are quickly photographed, listed, and then onto the next ones. Yoox product descriptions tend to rather concise and straight to the point.

    I've bought a couple of Boglioli jackets from Yoox, and when I made the purchases, those items were immediately marked as sold-out. Also what arrived were the actual jackets in the pictures. Their returns policy is very good, as long as you don't remove the securely attached Yoox tags(Yoox uses sealed tags, and you have to cut them to remove them. But I think that's the same with all new apparel now, sealed tags), or wash the garments, there should be no problem.

    BTW this was when I was in the UK.

    It just looks like a "normal" 3 button jacket. That little "roll" looks more like it's pressed down.
