Wow it looks great. When I look at the measures on the website it seems so oversized (compared to my other suits). Looks tight and nice on you. May I ask how tall you are?
Thanks! I'm wearing a size 50 here (I'm 5'11"), this is not tight at all, I think the camera angle makes it look more fitted than it is. I can easily fit a DBF Pecora Nera sweater, or a thicker Inis Meáin knit underneath here. I got a little over 23 inches p2p.

Seeing some comments both here and NMWA, most folks sized up one for the Pecora Nera sweater from this season?

I think most sized up. a few went TTS and still liked the fit.

I know I sized up, and loved the fit. It is pretty stretchy though, so I probably could have kept the TTS piece and let it stretch out a bit with wear.

I am on the shorter side for my chest size - 5'8" with a 40" chest - so as much as I would have liked to size up for a more roomy chest the L would have been too long in the body for me.

Question for anyone who might know...cordoroy easy pants on the DBF site list measurements at 18.7 waist and 8.9 leg opening for size 50, while NMWA has a pair listed at 17.3 and 7.7. I wouldn't think there would be two different cuts and assume one of the measurements is off? I can see the waist being variable since they are elasticated, but the leg opening makes me wonder.

Was curious about that as well. Waist measurements are probably hard because the fabric is so thick and it's elasticized. I will say, though, that the fit on the DBF model does not look like a leg opening of 8.9". That's much wider.

Anyone with familiarity of the balloon pants that can speak to sizing? I'm normally a 32 waist and it seems, looking at measurements, the balloon pants are at a little over 16" for a 46. Which, if correct, would be perfect for me, if the rise was around 11.5-12". The 48 seems a bit big, with almost a 17" measured waist.

I just measured a pair of 50 here and got 21.5 cm (8.4")
