As Westward Drift said, the UK sizes run one size smaller than U.S. sizes (UK Large = U.S. medium). And Mango fits small to begin with. So if you need one from the UK site a size large may be a better bet. Just a suggestion!

Re: Alternative Matera Slub Linen Jacket/Blouson -NTTD

Thank you....!  I mentioned medium because it (the UK size guide) says it fits 39.5 which would be perfect for me....but you're saying it might be too small despite the measurement?  Maybe for the price I should get a large and a medium?

I'm a size 40 suit and a medium in almost every brand. For that moto jacket Mango had a few years ago I went with the UK large/U.S. medium and it's wearable but a tight fit. Granted that was the style of that jacket and this one looks a little more forgiving. But I still went with the UK large with this one. But heck, at $13 each probablly better safe than sorry if you want to order 2. I'm sure you'll have no problem selling the one that doesn't fit.

Edit: for comparison I find the Mango fit very similar to Massimo Dutti. And I always need a large from them.

Re: Alternative Matera Slub Linen Jacket/Blouson -NTTD

If someone can grab an XXL for me I'll be happy to cover all costs. Thanks!

All sold out on Mango US site or else I'd grab one and Mango UK won't ship to Canada.  ajb007/martini

Re: Alternative Matera Slub Linen Jacket/Blouson -NTTD

I wasn't sure what to do, so ordered myself a Medium (have the cafe racer jacket canoe2 mentioned also and that fits me well in a Medium - snugly but nice) and a second Medium thinking that I'd have no trouble moving it on to someone.  Happy to push the button on a couple more to help some people out so long as I get reimbursed swiftly.  For reference I'm a 40" chest, 33" waist and get a Medium pretty much everywhere except for some of the US stores that offer a little more room in their fits.

Sunny is sorting me out.  Thanks to everyone who offered.  And of course to John for the awesome find!

Yeah, you guys really cleaned them out!

For those who missed on the Mango, I can highly recommend the Save Khaki version. This one has the drawstring waist which. to me, is more important to matching the look than the proper pockets. Mine arrived yesterday and I was surprised how much I like it.

The fit does look closer with the slightly looser arms. I'm not too keen on work jackets though.
I like the Mango one with the patch pockets; looks good.

I'm surprised they haven't reverted back to the original price.

Cant say no to that price, haven't been a fan of that look myself but as a relatively short term lurker on these forums you guys have been costing me a fortune.

Anyone got theirs yet? I do quite like the look although it's maybe a little slim.

Sorry, yes: Mango. I'm not sure how quick they deliver. They have some quite nice other bits on their site.
