I know RLPL sizing has been discussed previously, however, I was wondering about the cashmere blazer in particular. I'm a standard 44 in polo blue label and a 46 in black label. I have the chance to purchase this blazer in a 46 for a great price but want to make sure its going to fit or at least be tailorable. Does anyone own this blazer who can attest to its cut and whether or not you sized up for it?

Thanks very much

It fits moderately slim. To me, this piece fits about the same as blue label.

Ive also found it to be a bit long-- Im a 38s, and my jacket length is usually about 28.75-29.

My RLPL Cashmere is more like 29.25.

Yeah the length seems to be a bit long from the measurements provided. A 46 is 33in length so I'll probably have it pulled up an inch when I bring it in to have the sleeve buttons sewn on. I'm still on the fence so I think ill just take a trip to RL to be sure. Seller will refund if it doesnt fit but I want to avoid the hassle if at all possibe.

I have a St. Andrews RLPL 100% Cashmere navy blazer in a 46L. Its NOT slim and the shoulders are wide with roping, i would guess closer to 21". It will require significant cutting to make it work for a 44 IMO.
I would stay away.

Regards.

My experience as well. I would not size up.

Thanks for the advice everyone. I passed and went with a 46 in black label that was 40% off. Fits great.
