Item Sizing Origin & Construction Mike's Notes

We're thrilled to present the latest addition to our line-up of high-end tailored clothing with our exclusive collaboration with Luigi Bianchi Mantova. The Vittorio is an unstructured sportcoat that combines our signature athletic cut with Mantova's world-class soft tailoring and flawless Neapolitan shoulder construction.  Completely unlined, the internal construction is beautifully finished inside and out. The Vittorio features mother of pearl buttons, a classic two-button stance, gently rolling lapels, patch pockets and double rear vents. 

This particular model is crafted in an outstanding Loro Piana super 120s wool. The tropical-weight wool is light, airy, and perfect for warmer days. Its classic farmer's check has an oatmeal base with intersecting tuscan mocha & steel grey check lines.

Beautiful marbled cream mother of pearl buttons put the icing on the cake. 

Note: All measurements are shown in inches. "Chest" is measured from one armpit seam to the other. "Sleeves" is measured from the shoulder seam to the end of the cuff. "Shoulder" is measured from one shoulder seam to the other. "Length" is measured from the base of the rear collar to the bottom of the garment.

The Vittorio Sportcoat is true to size and generally consistent with our in-house Epaulet shirts. The size chart below illustrates how they match up. This is an approximation, as tailored clothing can't be cut identically to shirting. Generally, most customers who wear an Epaulet medium will get a solid fit in a 38 jacket. However, if your Epaulet shirt fits you very slim, or you have broad shoulders for your build, then we recommend ordering the next size up. The fit in the shoulders is crucial - the chest and body can easily be taken in if need be.

Please note that each jacket has approximately 1 inch of seam allowance in the sleeves that can be let out, and 1 inch of seam allowance in the chest and body. Many customers will find this to have a great fit "off the rack." However, it's common for a proper sportcoat to require a little bit of tailoring to fit exactly right. This is a solid item and you'll find that quality tailoring is worth the investment.

Unstructured jackets are a wonderful option when you want to wear a sportcoat and aren't constrained by excessively formal dress-codes. They give the wearer a natural look, full freedom of movement, and open the wearer up to a variety of pairings. 

By removing the interior lining, shoulder pads, and the canvassing, the jacket sits almost like an overshirt or cardigan, rather than a suit jacket. This soft construction makes for great comfort combined. This, combined with its slightly casual appearance, lends a more natural silhouette to the wearer. Think of it as lowering the sportcoat to a less formal level or, conversely, elevating your casual attire to a higher standard.

The Vittorio's shape and  precise lapel roll is achieved by a German tropical-weight interlining that provides integrity without defining structure structure. Unstructured, yet not shapeless jacket is the key. This soft construction is by far the most sought after at Lubiam and requires more time and hand labor than canvassed construction. Lubiam is famous for its soft-shouldered construction. Each and every piece wears as lightly as a shirt without sacrificing the elegance and polish of fine tailoring.  

Luigi Bianchi Mantova has been setting the standard for Italian tailoring for four generations. Each jacket is manufactured in Mantova, Italy, where Luigi Bianchi opened his first shop in 1911. Every piece is exquisitely manufactured from top-shelf fabrics in timeless shapes, with a flawless fabrication honed by over a hundred years of practice. Luigi Bianchi Mantova's soft-shouldered jackets are effortless to wear and feel like a second skin -- and they're built to last. Your Epaulet x Luigi Bianchi Mantova is sure to be a favorite for years to come.

The combination of this gorgeous old-school pattern and the Vittorio's sharp fit and construction make this a an especially valuable investment piece. We love this item with a chambray shirt and broken in pair of chinos.
