Also, is there anyway a tailor could fix the shoulder? I am led to believe so far that it is not possible to fix the shoulders. 

Sadly, I have the same issue at 52R. Tried on the 54R. Sleeves were a bit better, but was just too big all around.

sizing down solves that problem on our garments, not up. The divot you are getting is partially caused by the jacket's canvassing that extends up to the top shoulder seam. On some of our models, you get that divot when the shoulder is slightly extend past your natural shoulder because the canvas needs a bit of time to fall and mold to your shoulder shape. When you size down, your should fills out the sleevehead and often negates the divot. On some people though, the actual angle of the sleeve just isnt right. In looking at your photo it appears to be a combination of both. I spent a TON of time working with Isaia's head pttern maker on this season's NMWA shoulder to update the sleeve pitch, mellow the grinze and perfect the overall shape. The primo is the slimmest model we offer (we dont really sell it to anyone so I'm a bit suprised you got your hands on one outside of a sample sale) so if that size is close to fitting you/a bit big in the body, the NMWA should be just right. Hope that helps.

Shoulder alterations are usually either impossible or very expensive. Do you live in the US? If so, NMWA has a VERY generous and easy returns policy for full priced items. It might be worth checking out, especially if Antonio says that it would be a good fit for you.

@NickPollica, thank you very much indeed for your advice. Will try 48 and see how it works out. Also, just as an FYI tried the Bloomindales cut and 50R was pulling in the back slightly and divoting slightly so the SA there advised me to size up to 52 to avoid divots and pulling in the back. Very interesting to hear that sizing down actually solves the problem. It was indeed a sales jacket from Haymaker and Co in Nashville was so excited to get the Eidos jacket in the fabric that I pulled the trigger without thinking too much. Also, feel that it was not divoting as much on the day I purchased.

I live in Chicago, will give NMWA a go and see how it goes.

Best just try, Jeffery used to say upsize to avoid divot as well. My personal view is try both ways..., then if nothing works this cut is not for you, move on...

I know. I finally took a look at the new Vancouver Nordstroms and found the Eidos stuff. Beautiful stuff, but bummed about the lack of tailoring.

@NickPollica or anyone else: Any idea if rollneck sweaters were stocked other than the light grey? Looking for Brown or Green. Thanks.

Longshot, but is anywhere currently stocking short-sleeve Lupo polos?

post #3174 of 6231

Not sure if they're in stock anywhere right now, but are you a medium?  @LJubel328 has some for sale over on BST.

For those interested in the Eidos X Kimber boots I believe the discount code "StyleForum" works on http://christiankimber.com/

To follow up on this, is anyone here aware of a 38L/48L being stocked anywhere?

@NickPollica I picked up the Thompson Belted Cardigan. Beautiful piece. With a M, I get a nice slim fitted, clean look through the body, and with a tug I can get slight overlap of the front ends when belted, but it doesn't necessarily want to stay that prefers to be open since there is less material (like on the Scoop website http://www.scoopnyc.com/thompson-belted-shawl-collar-cardigan.html). With a L, there is definitely more room in the body and chest, I get more overlap on the sides when belted, and it has a slouchier look (like on Christian Kimber's site http://christiankimber.com/products/copy-of-eidos-knit-charcoal). I'm curious on your take on how this sweater is intended to fit?
