    Do you wear other brands in a 44L or 42L? Those pants would be swimming on me, but the S to S and chest size is perfect... ugh

    One is a sack blazer made in usa, the other one is made in italy with better and slimmer cut and with pickstitch detail.

    I usually wear a size 40R, should I size up with this? ( I am interested in the made in italy)

    Thanks

    ^^ Thanks mate. I assumed the more expensive was better, especially when it's already on sale. I am intersted in the sizing as well, I'm a 41L and am going to 42L. Wish me luck.

    All great points...can't argue with any of this. I have really been wanting the Marlow for a while now, and I don't own any dark brown dress shoes, so this will fill a really huge gap in my rotation. And it's really difficult to find any brand new cordovan shoe for under $450, so I couldn't pass it up this time.

    Although, I really do like the Lindrick too - and your description along with Spoo's pics made me want them even more, haha. I guess I'll just have to stick with the Alden x Epaulet Ravello for now (assuming those are shipped sometime soon - hopefully this year), and maybe I'll get the Lindrick during the next private sale.

    Do you know if the Italian made blazer is Caruso and fully canvassed?

    Honestly can't say whether the Blazers are Caruso, I was under impression that the suits were only.. however I can see how the Made in Italy blazers can be..

    I think I'll get it either way.

    I usually wear 40R slim fit (38R otherwise) with a good amount of waist suppression (32 waist). Do you think 40R would fit well with Rugby suits/blazers?

    If a 40R slim fit fits you well already - then a 40R Rugby will be good - because the 38R is also slim...
