    The price for a Lardini suit is $1000, right now on Yoox.

    There's nothing for 60 bucks as told above.

    I recently bought a cotton/linen Lardini blazer from YOOX--$324 for an unlined, unconstructed summer jacket. Pricey, but I liked the fit and fabric and construction so I kept it. Sized 50 EU or 40 US which gave me a very slim fit and I wear a 39R US. The tags had been hand-corrected to 50EU Longo (long) but the jacket was a good length for me at 5'11" so I assume their slim fit jackets are quite short. The sleeves were way too long which is a problem because they have working cuff buttons. But...the spiffy MOP buttons persuaded me to pay for sleeve alterations.

    Lardini makes Bloomingdales' house brand.

    I suggest you go to a store and try them on................fit is great for slim guys. Also, they are half-canvassed!

    I will have a BNWT staple navy pinstripe 38R for sale this weekend =)

    Do all Lardini suit jackets and sportcoats have working cuffs?

    I'm considering this yoox lardini:

    http://www.yoox.com/item.asp?cod10=49120689&tskay=3FD17CD7

    Any opinions? I have a question on the shoulders. heavily padded? minimal? Prefer minimal. I can fit into a 42r OTR, but really look for 41Rs. Some conflicting info on this thread as their suits being slim fit vs. others saying they are for a large man.

    FWIW...I just purchased a 42R Lardini suit. I am normally a 40R. The shoulders are very lightly padded and fit me perfectly (18.5in fits me best). While I haven't measured the chest I don't see the need for any alterations. I just need to bring in the waist of the jacket slightly (which I often do even in most OTR 40Rs). The pants are 36 inch waist so I will be getting them altered / slimmed.

    So my guess is that if you buy a 42 the jacket should fit you fine. Trousers may need slimming down depending on your waist size.

    On yoox there are Lardini jackets without the flower lapel pin?

    Does this mean its made for an brand(Piombo?) or its just doesn't include the lapel pin?

    Lardini makes jackets for Piombo, and there is no lapel pin for Piombo, Just Lardini house brand. Kiton makes the jackets for MP Massimo Piombo.

    Heavily padded shoulders are older Lardini models...the problem is Yoox has lots of old stuff, so just be ready to return. Almost all of the more recent Lardini jackets are garment dyed and washed, so they have super soft shoulders, and obviously...no canvassing

    Lardini has been doing a lot stuff with Zegna fabrics recently, especially silk and cashmere blends, amazing stuff especially a mini hopsack washed cool wool very similar to the Killer Hopsack Boglioli K's that come out each summer
