    Yes, please tell us how it fits as I'm interested in one as well.

    Also, what do you guys think about this Brooks Brothers jacket: http://www.brooksbrothers.com/IWCatP...=&sectionsize=


    The Regent fit by BB is definitely more on the relaxed side. Their Fitzgerald blazers are a little more tri, but still not enough for me. I don't think they make a blazer in their Milano cut which would be the only one you might like if you're interested in a trimmer fit.

    My favourite blazer of all time is John Varvatos, but I think it is more than you're looking to spend. Prada is also very slick in both construction and fit.

    I can't speak to different models, but rag & bone typically fit TTS... a 44 will really be 22" P2P. You may want to size up. I'm typically a 42 suit but a 44 in R&B, at least if I want to move my arms.

    Oh, and I've never had trouble with R&B fitting short in the arms, and I'm on the tall side (6'2+).

    Good to know. Yea, I'm planning on sizing up as well, I've never seen any fit pics of people wearing the dagger blazer smaller than a 40, so that's what I'll go with.

    I was on a similar search last fall. Tried on a bunch. My fave that was reasonable was an Acne. But when i was in NYC i went to uniqlo and found one that fit like a glove for $79. Buttons and material are not great, but it looks really good on. Im a 42 long and i bought a large.

    Uniqlo have about four navy blazers made of different fabric at the moment. My favorite is a very lightweight "dry" poly/cotton blend for $69.90 (also available in a heather grey & a light grey). Also saw a 100% cotton, wool & linen blazers. They are all very slim fit with no/minimal shoulder padding & would go with virtually anything.

    I bought this jacket a couple of months ago on Mr. Porter. It's quickly become my go to jacket as it works with pretty much everything.

    I think based on those measurements you should be able to wear a small pretty comfortably, however double check with the measurements on Mr. Porter to verify.
