    My Newbury jacket is the silk lined one- Made in China . So factory in China and Italy may be using different cuts.

    Ah okay, originally I always thought that anyway - but changed my thought when he said the size difference existed


    It's possible, i consider Rugby still an experiment of a brand - so i don't take anything to harshly, including sizing.



    Yeah this point is important too, since some Newburys are made in Italy and some 'Imported'

    I agree with this and I hope that they can keep this brand forever!

    Gents,
    Rugby vs BB Fitzgerald Fit how do they compare fit wise ? BB claims they are slim fit with higher armhole. Also they have Cambridge fit . Have any of you hand any experience with them ?
    [COLOR=FF00AA]Saturdays [/COLOR]- you and I are pretty much the same size. Do you have any BB blazers and any fit comments.
    Sorry we don't have any BB in Australia.

    My two cents. I have a BB Fitzgerald suit in a 38R and purchased the Rugby tropical wool navy blazer (made in Italy) in the same size for my son. I just tried it on and it definitely has higher armholes and is slimmer in the chest than my BB Fitzgerald suit. I tried a BB Cambridge fit sport coat once at the store and it was similar to Rugby blazer my son has in terms of high armholes and slim chest. I had to size up to a 40R to make it work. Hope this helps...

    Sorry BB refuses to help me in stores, I refuse to buy from them. Horrible customer service in some boutiques. They literally ask me to shop their childrens' sizes rather than even offer some of their slimmer fitting lines.

    I love BB, and do still buy a few things here and there like their ties - but unless its something I absolutely need and cannot find at RL, I avoid them. I love their classic cologne and ties, everything else I can get elsewhere at better prices.

    I do admit though their shirts are nice, but I can never find any that fit me well OTR.

    If I ever run into a 36R BB suit I'll probably give it a shot

    whaaat.. i've gone through the website inside and out, there is absolutely no way I could've missed this, It was literally the only thing I was looking for since the fall collection was posted

    TY TY for the link!!

    I can't help but think that it will go on sale eventually, but I can grab it at $250 after Student discount, no tax since I live in MN.

    It was added this morning, I swear!

    It was never on the site when I first posted a screenshot from the video, and it wasn't last night when I saw it show up on eBay.

    Someone at Rugby is trolling me.

    What's the difference between Polo's and Rugby's cashmere 100% cashmere sweaters?

    I can't tell the difference between them. Then again I don't own enough cashmere to say one > other, in terms of quality
