    Hello all,

    I'm new to the forum. Had my eye on some of the Marni sport coats at Yoox and wondered if any of you had experience with Marni sizing? Do they run slim? I wear Italian 48/US 38 for Costume National and Marc Jacobs. Any recommendations on what size I should buy for Marni?

    Cheers

    I own a Marni sportjacket and a Marni raincoaty type thing. They run EXTREMELY small. I wear a 36/46 normally but for Marni's stuff, I have to wear their 38/48.

    hmmm...i've experienced the opposite. i'm a 39 chest and i probably could've sized down on both the 50/40 Marni jacket and peacoat that i've got. both purchased off Yoox.

    on the flipside, i always have to size up one if not two for Costume National.

    if you don't mind the $5 restocking fee, i'd get two sizes.

    Marni sizing is very different from season to season, i've had both superslim items and some items that were very generously sized. get both if you want to be 100% sure

    Everything I own in Marni (all outerwear) is US38/EU48 which is my normal size in other designer brands.
