    Yeah, my profile is old, about 4 years, before I knew much about sizing. [​IMG] I am actually a 34-36. RO for the most part, runs pretty small. However, sizing does depend on the jacket, I've only done research on the leathers and have concluded that some like the pilot leather fits slightly bigger than the Mollino or Intarsia. I think it also depends on how it is cut. I have the Intarsi and Mollino in size small, I measured both and they are practically identical but the Intarsia feels smaller and tighter. I think it has a higher armhole than the Mollino, giving a closer fit or at least that feeling. On some RO leathers though, I've seen measurements where the P2P is around 20"-21" on a size small while on others it is 18"-19" on the same size.

    ^those measures are on the hanger and the construction makes accurate measurements impossible. the pilot only fits bigger because of the wool shoulder insertions.

    I also agree with that, 2 people can measure the same RO jacket and might have different results, differing by an inch or more.

    IIRC, the Barneys in BH has the Vandals in all black but all leather not the cord version.

    Another suggestion - a bit above budget

    [​IMG]

    After 15% off this would be a good one. I don't know if you can do the revolve first-timer discount on forwardforward but that'd put it squarely in budget.

    You actually could, I tried it before. I think the first time buy discount might even be 20% off.

    There are 15% coupons floating around - I think "tulip" is one of them. At least it worked on my Astros when I bought them.

    Those drapy cardis are usually cut quite generously. Found a cached page with measurements for a size 1, for reference. http://webcache.googleusercontent.co...&ct=clnk&gl=us Size 2 is generally suited for a 36, but since it can be worn a wide variety of ways, it could most likely accommodate a 38.

    "stylewatchoct" gives you 20%, think it's valid till mid October. Just used it a couple days back.
