Just a suggestion, but you're going to have your work cut out for you beating this company in the Google search results. Although defunct, they have a 10+ year start

I knew that I'd heard the name Eidos somewhere before! Thanks for reminding me, and thanks for the nostalgic trip down memory lane!

That's a comparison I've been using frequently to guys who know clothing. That said, obviously our pricing structure is very different. The name was one of the only things I was given coming into the project as Isaia already owned the rights to it for clothing and apparel.

From the website, the collection looks like practically
every other "Neapolitan" RTW vendor this year. I have
several Isaia suits/ sportcoats, but jumped ship a couple
of years ago when the cut changed from the Sirio/Stuart
models. I love the quality but don't like the models and fabrics
available the San Francsco Bay Area.

Just a quick aside - According to the higher ups here at HQ, the S in Isaia's widely available "S" body stands for Sirio and the three models have the same fit. That said, I have developed 3 new tailoring silhouettes that are completely different (and frankly, I think much better) than Isaia's current offering. One of my goals for this collection was not to design a super fashion forward suit and sell it in uninspiring fabrics (think ZZenga), but to create a timeless, elegant silhouette rendered in interesting fabric that not only looks great now but can be worn for the rest of wearer's life.

The way I see it, the value proposition is that we're making a timelessly beautiful cut, fully canvassed garment that is made in Italy accessible to a much broader spectrum of guys.

My Siro/ Staurts of maybe 5 years ago+ fit me very differently than what Nieman Marcus
and Saks in San Francisco began stocking a few years back. The then "new" cut was (is)
two buttoms with a shorter, closer fitting jacket and somewhat built up shoulders. Mine
are three buttons and a looser fit. I actually had the little padding reduced in these suits/jackets..

I look forward to seeing your new collection.

Michelangelo is the factory where the Eidos tailored clothing is produced. The factory no longer produces garments under the Michelangelo label but continues to make private label goods for many other brands at all different levels of make. All the non washed garments in Eidos collection are made with a full canvas construction.

Do Bloomingdale carry 36 for you guys?
post #26 of 395
I believe they do. I know or a fact that carson street does.
post #27 of 395
I asked the Isaia guy at Barney's about Eidos and he was shocked. He asked me how I knew the name.
post #28 of 395
well, guess there is a reason for me to go back to Bloomingdales after all, will try to check out this weekend and report

It doesn't surprise me that all the Isaia retail associates don't know about it. We're keeping it entirely separate as its a different idea. There is no mention of Isaia anywhere on our garments. We don't want it to feel like a diffusion line because it isn't. I genuinely believe that our silhouettes stand up (and in many cases surpass) to the best things available in the market, at any price point.
