tbh it's probably just my personal preference for a "rounder" silhouette. and trying to break it down would be hard, but let me say it this way:what set Tom Ford's suits apart in his prime?what set Thom Browne's suits apart in his prime?what set Armani's suits apart in his prime?In the era those guys were at their prime, it's not as if wide, peak-lapel suits had never existed, or narrow-lapeled suits, or drapey, comfortable suits, but a set of design decisions by TF, TB or...
Shout out to @NickPollica—I have an Eidos suit and a Formosa suit sitting side by side here, both from NMWA. I appreciate Formosa's quality, but the Eidos blows it away in character and style. Lots of people love Formosa and point to it as an excellent example of Neapolitan tailoring. Obviously different strokes for different folks (ok that's out of the way). And I fully understand there's no "definitive" Neapolitan maker out there who completely embodies what makes...
LOL
Nah it wasn't about whether the cut changed, but rather if I were in between and could stand to size down instead of up.
i ordered a bunch of stuff from other makers i'd been eyeing at nmwa for a while and didn't know about sizing. formosa, rota and g. inglese specifically. i may post in the nmwa thread about it.yeah, tried on the fresco again and it's weird—feels much smaller. seriously odd. just two hours difference and it's binding up in the armholes and shoulders like crazy. so i guess i'll stick with 52!!
first time ordering this size, so couldn't tell you
wow thanks guys! ok this is going to sound bizarro but i just tried it on again and it's way too tight. not sure how just 2 hours makes that much of a difference but i'm definitely feeling it bind up a lot more in the armholes and shoulders. i guess i truly am a 52—or i gained some significant muscle mass this morning lol.also the pants here are the bigger problem as far as this suit goes. seat, waist, hips and crotch are all pulling like crazy. i'd have to let it out in...
X-Post from the Eidos thread for pics.
Got my mega NMWA shipment in today (I ordered a bunch of stuff to try on). One item was the navy fresco suit. I sized down from my traditional Eidos size of 52 to size 50. Turns out it fits literally perfectly in every way. Pants (size 34 / 50 presumably), not so much (tight in the waist, crotch, seat and hips. Great otherwise! lol) No idea if Partenopea manufacture has anything to do with it, but all the stuff about last season's jacket I bought (the gun club) that...
LOL. Jinx!
