Italian term or phrase: maglia jacquard tagliata
The "maglia jacquard" isno problem, it's the "tagliata" bit that has me worried!
Any textile specialists out there who can give me a hand?

cut jacquard knitwear


Explanation:
it's a guess rather than the words of an expert:

I understand this to mean that the piece of clothing is made of jacquard material (I imagine a roll of woollen cloth entirely made in a jacquard pattern here...), then cut and assembled (as opposed to a jacquard pattern worked/knitted into a specific garment).

not a specialist but a knitter


Explanation:
My sense of this is that the knitwear is not knit to measurements, rather the knit fabric is cut to measurements.
Did not find this term in the Lands' end catalogue.
What you can do in that catalogue is find the item number in Italian, then search the English catalogue with the number.
