    http://cgi.ebay.ca/NWT-CANALI-MENS-L...QQcmdZViewItem I'm pretty sure the guy missed the measure of the sleeves pretty bad. I mean, no one makes 25.5" sleeves. Of course, that's Sportswear so the level of quality is not the highest of Canali's, or so I would guess, but I'd like that to be an authentic item if I am to bid on it. Oh, and do you guys think this would fit a 36 or are Canali sports small more like 38?

    He probably measured from the shoulder. Given his shoulder measurement, I'd say it's 35.5"

    I think it's the real thing and chorse's assessment of sleeve length is dead-on.

    Thank you guys.

    Now, I'd just have to know how Canali's small shirts fits and perhaps I'd buy that. It could be a pretty reliable shirt.

    I think this is going to be too big for you. Shoulders of 20 and chest of 44. This--as far as I know--would be much better if you were a 40R or 42R, not a 36 or 38.

    Hm, that's a pretty strange kind of small. Perhaps she messed up with his measurements again. [​IMG] Edit: she answered me. It IS even big on a 40. Damn. Oh well, thanks a lot guys!
