No respect for history.It was oval head. OVAL.Not egghead.Shaking my head...
I thought that means it's bespoke.
Okay. Yea that seems crazy.Except in the sense that basically everything is American nowadays. Because 'Murica.
Separate from what?This all came about from an Esquire video that indicated Eidos is Italian. Since it's Esquire they probably paid (one way or another) for inclusion in the Italian brand video.When I saw dirnelli pointing out that Eidos isn't necessarily Italian like that, I assumed he was talking in the sense that they're fibbing a little and that should somewhat color your impression of the brand, not in the sense that his need to definitively categorize menswear...
I don't think you're giving the other argument quite enough credit.The point - as I see it and I don't totally share this view so I may be wrong - isn't to neatly divide all brands into nationalities.

Anyone able to hook a brutha up? What's the best buttondown collar you've seen Luxire make? THanks.
Ah.I mixed up Sexton and Cifo - which are definitely the two I'd get wrong.Simon has some closeup photos on his blog. Really love that Panico and the Liverano.
