I keep card case in coat pocket FWIW
DC Dudes, Since Greg will be coming to DC for the Formosa trunk show on September 17th, we thought it would be a good time to gather interested parties for a No Man meetup.

Once I have a sense of our group size, I'll figure out a location and PM you guys the details. -David

Regardless of whether an Eidos jacket is made to the same specs as Isaia's top line, the manufacture is equally Italian.
In my mind, whether you should penalize a brand for marketing you think is disingenuous is a separate argument. On whether Eidos plays up the Italian connection...they do their photo shoots in Naples. But their models are definitely not stereotypically Italian looking. One of the things I like about Antonio's presentations is that he has models of all different ethnicities. And there are many explicit design references in the collections that range outside of Naples - the...
