    Warning -- that appears to be boys M, so probably effectively XS, unless I'm missing something. Nice design though, not quite what I'd have expected from BB.

    Well spotted. I knew it was too good to be true. Any of you with stylish sons get on it :)

    I think I'm too pale to wear a jacket that light, but it is nice. I've sold to that guy before, too; in fact he's selling one of my very earliest acquisitions right now too.

    Re: your sport coat, is it me or is Isaia sizing all over the place? I've got a 52R which is somehow on the tight side across the shoulders, but not much bigger in the chest than your coat.

    You've got me worried now about my measuring skills! I don't have much experience with Isaia I but say. I love the jacket I'm selling though. If you want some pictures taken with the tape measure in jut let me know ;)

    By the way gents, does anyone wear XXL and want a lovely summer poplin shirt? £15 + postage

    I didn't mean it like that -- I'm sure you're correct, I think it's just that Isaia sizes are inconsistent. Mine's the red coral label, which maybe runs shorter and tighter. There are a few people on this forum who have owned several and seem to have a sense of it, but another data point is always helpful.

    The measurements look about right for a 38 to me, except the shoulder measurement - if you are measuring it from the top of the sleeve seam then that is very broad, if it is from side to side, then probably pretty standard.

    It's a shame it isn't a 40R...

    Been a bit quiet here lately. Do you not realise I have money burning a hole in my PP account?! :)

    Anyone here a 48R and wants a proxy on a ZZegna silk/linen grey stripe blazer for £20? Tempted to buy to flip but not sure I can be arsed.

    You're telling me, Nick.. If it was 40R, I would have driven to his house for it.

    EU48 or UK48? Might be interested if it's the former.

    I've got a Gant 16" shirt available, it's too big for me. Spread collar, button cuffs, pocket, surprisingly decent buttons.
