Well, so far so good: I grabbed the brown/blue guncheck from Bloomingdales NYC last week over the phone. To my delight the 40R is a fantastic fit on me, mostly due to the unfinished sleeves, thank god, as I have long arms and it's usually a deal breaker when they are functional sleeves off the peg. Other than the packing engineers being stoned and leaving the security tag on the jacket, which turned into an issue, all else went well. I was waiting until my next NYC trip this summer to check out Eidos sportcoats (I have and love a couple of the polos) but couldn't resist a sale so called a sales rep and had them ship one to meFull props to those who alerted this thread to the 40% sale and good size selection at Blommys San Francisco!
I called and nabbed the Navy hopsack as well.
Will drop some pics when I get the jackets sleeves finished.
Beautiful Beautiful cut on these...wow....totally in love with these Eidos jackets.
