RL Signature Suit fit vs RL Blue Label?

I recognize that the Signature line of Ralph Lauren was discontinued a few years ago. But I am wondering if anyone could compare the fit of the Signature "Jerome III" model vs. the various RL Blue Label models, notably the Polo II and Polo IV. For example, is the Jerome III a tighter fit than the BL models? A 42R Polo II and IV are a touch snug in the chest, but a 44R is way too big. Would the Jerome III fit or be too tight? Thanks.

Higher armholes.
More padded (structured) shoulder.
(Almost roped IIRC.)
Slightly slimmer overall.

I wish they continued it to. I have two items, one sportoat and one suit. The Jerome III cut is very similar to the Black Label Anthony cut. The shoulders are even more roped. Lapels on the Jerome III are slightly wider in comparison but not wide by any means. Great suits/jackets.

Does the Jerome III fit similarly to the Black Label or is it not as slim? For example, the Black Label is a horrible fit for me.

I have to disagree. I find mine as slim fitting. The waist is nipped as well in Sig Label. I take a 38 in both.
