    Just a PSA, I've purchased and returned two LBM 1911 sport coats in the last couple months. It seems they have very low arm holes, which was a bit surprising for an Italian brand.

    I own several Boglioli coats, Corneliani, Lardini, Battistoni, etc. and LBM's arm holes are much bigger/lower. See pic.

    FYI

    do you size correctly?

    I also own LBM 1911 blazers. bought them a few years ago

    they fit nicely, slim fit.

    i do not have your problems.

    They are from recent years? are they LBM or LBM 1911? I guess LBM has some traditional cut.

    Ya the shoulders fit fine, normal 46us size, just the armholes are way low. Both were recent, new 1911 purchases. Unlined, soft shoulder, patch pockets...very modern cuts...except horrible arm holes.

    I see LBM 1911 mentioned alongside Boglioli frequently but the armhole cuts are very different. YMMV

    Hardly surprising Italy will have just the same demand for coats of a universal block. You should not expect every Italian man to have discerning tastes, most won't. You are reading far too many written articles and not thinking rationally about the subject.

    Thinking rationally? LOL, ok man, take a chill pill, it's just a sports coat. Just trying to help out those shopping around.
