    I'll share back once I get it (later this week) but I will say that I trust Sartorialism's judgement (the one who posted that thread and was a neat B&S seller for a time) and a number of the others in that thread. Whether this version still holds up to then, we'll see.

    Just curious, has anyone ever ordered a suit or jacket from Yoox and gotten a Long sized one? Everything I've ordered from them has been a Reg and had to be returned.

    Reporter is made by the folks at Inghirami -- they make, among other things, Ingram, San Remo, Inghirami, Reporter and Peter & Sons, and recently acquired the Robert Friedman shirt brand from Fabrys SRL. It is all made in Italy, mid-market construction and fabrics. Of their brands, leaving aside Robert Friedman, Reporter is the slimmest fit and most fashion-forward. It is not super-slim as you may find in some other Italian brands, but it is cut nicely. It has been carried on occasion at Saks and Neiman Marcus in the U.S. It is certainly worth $79.

    Many thanks for the info but now you've got me excited that I'm going to get lucky with a gem; we'll see...

    It's nice stuff, you just have to be careful with a lot of the Inghirami items, as they tend to make more classic cuts, and often produce for the Italian wedding market, which is why you'll see items with a lot of sheen and made out of viscose and the like. Glad to help out on any additional questions you may have on them or any other random brands -- I run a small business in this area, and have experience either dealing with these companies directly or in many cases have bought their items. I happened to meet with an Inghirami rep last month, and may be headed to their warehouse in a few months if things work out.

    Does Reporter run small compared to US sizes? I find that I need to size up on a lot of Italian brands (Barena for example, and anything I have tried on yoox that was an unknown Italian brand).

    What do you know about Pennesi? I bought some of their suits and they seem to be a good value.

    I have some Gazzarrini tuxedos that will be available in a few weeks, but only a handful. If you're a size 38/48EU and like something a bit more fashion-forward, you're in luck.


    Reporter will run you how all Italian items should fit (I'm partial to a proper slim fit being a skinny guy myself) - Drop 7, generally high arm holes, tapered in the midsection, etc... but it is not too severe.

    Pennesi is likely to run you a bit smaller than even the Reporter items. Pennesi is one of the house labels of Copen Group. I sell their main line, Royal Hem, at PEURIST, and it is good stuff. They also make/have made for Romeo Gigli, Alessandro Dell'acqua and Ferre. They are currently in the process of building a men's line for Baldinini (the shoe company). Certainly on par with items from Inghirami/Reporter. Difference being is that the cut is generally much more slim for the Royal Hem and Pennsi lines, particularly in the arms and pants, but that varies. If you're buying a suit and you can see the measurement on the pant leg opening, you should be able to get an idea of how the suit will fit overall - anything 7 inches or less tends to be VERY slim; 7.5-7.75 inches is about normal - slim, but not too severe; anything above 7.75 inches is likely to vary.

    Hope that helps.

    Thank you very much for this information, sir. Would you know if Reporter still features handstiching and other nice detailing?

    Its logistically and economically hard to order/return stuff to Yoox from where I live.

    Thanks!

    And, perhaps, you may also know a few a things about MichelAngelo, Hilton, and Coltorti brands?
    Thanks again, really amazed with the knowledge you have on these local Italian products.

    BTW, I purchased summer pants by Peter and Sons in Bari, they are nice in quality and construction, but made in China, not Italy.

    Yoox should hire you to stay here and answer questions! Or, rather, you need your own affiliate thread for info like this instead of helping yoox out :fistbump:

    Can't tell you about the details on the Reporter items beyond what I already know. As for the other two -- Michelangelo is an upper mid-market brand -- uses better fabrics, slightly better construction (http://www.michelangelospa.com/). Hilton is a brand owned by Tombolini, decent quality, on par w/Reporter and the like, but slightly lower quality than the Tombolini main line. To the best of my knowledge, Coltorti is a boutique with locations in the U.S. and Italy (http://www.boutiquecoltorti.it), and the items being sold are likely a house label.
