    If you pick any of these item...then click on size you need...it will provide you the info.
    The sizes listed are US...and the corresponding Italian size will pop up when you click on the US size.

    Regards.

    Another question when the dress pant size is listed as a 38 (suit size) what does that actually mean. Like with these for example. http://www.yoox.com/item/YOOX/JIL+SA...8543_6_5_1A_70

    those are size 32, the 40 are a US size 34 and so on.

    Italian trouser sizes correspond to suit sizes. So, e.g. Incotex trousers that are marked 48, correspond to a size 48 suit. That is a US 38 jacket (-10) and, depending on the drop, usually a US 32 trouser. Roughly, drop 16 from the Italian pant size to get US.

    It appears YOOX lists the trousers according to US suit sizes, which is a bit of a pain, so just drop 6 from the pant size. 38 = 32, 40 = 34, etc.

    Obviously, this won't be exact because of vanity sizing, inexact waist measurements, etc., so YMMV.

    Bumping this thread to ask another sizing question re Yoox. I purchased a Pal Zileri suit on there just now. The description said "fits large" and suggested that I purchase one size smaller than normal. Is Yoox generally accurate when they suggest this? I did purchase a 36 instead of my normal 38. Really hoping it won't be too small. Much appreciated for your guys input.

    I am also wondering about what "fits large" actually means for Pal Zaleri suits on Yoox.

    I've bought a Pal Zaleri suit before (in store, not online) and it fit me fine. Is Yoox saying that the Pal Zaleri suits they sell are larger than regular Pal Zaleri suits, or that Pal Zaleri suits generally fit larger than other suits (not in my experience).

    How did you go ordering one size lower?
