    I have one and find they run slightly big. I'm a 37 chest and took a size 36 in the Tebas. Assuming the ones Spoo has are the same cut as mine, anyway.

    The Teba is really nice. IMO, what makes them special is the soft structure inside. Most shirt jackets are basically completely unstructured -- they fit like a shirt. The Tebas have a light fusible in the chest and a very, very thin shoulder pad. Gives the jacket a bit more structure. It's much more flattering than your standard shirt jacket. Probably closer to a lightly structured Italian sport coat than your standard shirt jacket.

    If this whole writing about clothes thing doesn't pan out, you've got a promising future in sales.

    I'd say they're close cousins. They're similar, but slightly different.

    They're similar in the sense that both are softly constructed. No haircloth in the chest, very little padding in the shoulder. Gives both lines a very relaxed and casual feel.

    They're different, however, in terms of cut and sensibility.

    Boglioli is cut like a traditional suit jacket, just slightly more fashion forward. Slimmer fit; shorter body. Their coats have a contemporary Italian feel.

    Tebas aren't cut like suit jackets. They're more of a shirt jacket or painters jacket. The body is slightly boxier and more relaxed. The quarters fall straight down, rather than cut away towards the hips. The sleeves have button cuffs. The back is ventless and, maybe more distinctively, the lapels don't have notches.

    I think of Boglioli as that softly constructed, contemporary Italian jacket a guy wears if he likes tailoring, but feels traditional silhouettes are too stuffy. Maybe it's for a more casual office or a night out on the town. Teba is for weekend afternoons or trips out to the country for wine tasting (which is the origins of the jacket, as Count Teba supposedly wore this in the countrysides of Spain when he was drinking wine and hunting quail).

    It's definitely a quirky looking jacket. And for everyday purposes, something like Boglioli will be more useful and versatile. That said, for guys who like CM clothing, a Teba is nice in that it's a slightly more causal and interesting take on classic casualwear. Again, I think the biggest advantage here is that it has fusing in the the chest and very, very thin padding across the shoulders (which is rare in shirt jackets because it takes more effort to produce). Most guys, including me, don't look good in completely unstructured shirt jackets, which is why tailored clothing is so helpful. Tebas give you some of the advantages of tailoring while being somewhat casual.

    Here's a good example. The jacket on the left isn't Boglioli, it's by a Florentine tailor named Vestrucci. But the general cut is towards that soft Italian tailoring side of things. On the right is a Justo Gimeno Teba. After the first photo are some images of how I think the Teba can be worn.
