    Just made my first Yoox purchase. :embar:

    Grabbed this in what they call size "42". I'm actually a 40R is US sizing but imagine this runs small. Am I right?

    You aren't really giving enough context for anyone except those familiar with that piece on sight to give you any advice. No brand etc...

    Maybe if we did some analysis on all first yoox purchases and the likelihood of it running slim?

    ^ You should be fine with the sizing. 40 and 42 in this cardi isn't all that different. I had a hard time deciding which to keep. I kept the 40 but would have been happy with the 42. It runs sort of slim but not ridiculously slim.

    it is a nice piece, I wear it unbuttoned generally.

    Miran, ur too fat for rlbl suits :p

    I have that jil cardigan in 36 and fits me spot on (I'm slim 36). But 38 would've worked well for me too.

    (i) I am not fat
    (ii) They have my size and 1 size larger.
    (iii) It's Made in Italy though....and no, Italian 54 doesn't mean American 44.....so you could be right, they could be Italian tight fit....I better size up. Is that your experience, very tight fitting?

    I can't comment on the RLBL suiting, but the other items (jeans, cords, shirts) I haven't found to be tight-fitting. My normal size fits appropriately.

    thrift shop buddy, washed out denim jackets abound.


    I'm trying to score a thrifted denim jacket myself, so I can cut the sleeves off and wear it over a black leather. fuk ya.


    I also have the raw selvedge + courderoy collar version from Supreme, I love it. And lastly, I have an insulated version from All-Saints


    But finally, I am still trying to find one with a white sherpa collar, then I'll be done with denim jackets.

    This is ridiculous. The problem is they give you the exactly chest measurement...but each suit is cut differently. Judging from the picture, this one is narrowest at the chest with lots of room around the gut...
    Others are wide at the chest and slim at the gut...

    How do you figure out if it'll fit just by looking at the picture?

    I'm not worried about drop/pant size...coz you can always let out and take it a little....


    Case in point:

    Chest: 23 1/2" (armpit to armpit)
    Shoulders: 20 1/2" (seam to seam)
    Sleeves: 26" (shoulder seam to cuff)
    Length: 32 1/2" (top of collar to bottom)

    Doesn't this look narrowest at the chest....even when buttoned up? Pant size on this is only 39 though! so how can the jacket waist be bigger than 47?

    You guys are aware that suit jackets and trousers can be altered, right? In many cases, they actually have to be altered because length or sleeves are not.

    I am bigger guy with a 6 drop and used to own several RLBL
