Maybe the first page can be edited (and continuously updated) to include all the vital information: stockists, model comparison, etc.

I don't want to derail the thread, but does @LA Guy have any thoughts on this? I can't be the first person to bring this up.

This is the 1 billion dollar questions (literally) for forums.  Every platform has issues.  A blog has low grade and low amounts of info, generally.  Instagram and tumblrs, are generally highly visual and not a good place for information, and the blogs housed on tumblrs have the same issues as a blog. A forum, which has the real time knowledge contributed by highly informed and invested hobbyists, has a ton of information, but it's hard to find, and we simply don't have the personnel to keep the OP updated.  Something like Wikipedia moves slowly, and because it's conservative by nature, and not primarily social, a lot of info is simply never published, because the barrier to writing like that is very high.  

 

It would be great is some members of good standing would commit to doing this, and the would be made dubiously honored, but even wikipedia is having issues finding new writers.  It's a high commitment task where the only realistic reward is contribution to and recognition by the community.  If this person exists for this or some other key threads, please feel free to PM me.  

 

Sorry, I am as interested in this as are you, and have sat around a table with other "experts" trying to figure this out.  So far, no one really has an answer.

I'm aware of the Ciro & Tipo, but I'm just now realising that NMWA have their own model too? How do they all compare.

I'm fairly portly for a tall guy and best I can manage off the rack is a drop 7 :/


Here's a breakdown of Tipo, Tenero, Primo and Lorenzo. NMWA has a revised cut this year, I believe and someone with more knowledge than me can chime in on the differences.

Tipo - If you are familiar with Isaia, its a mix of the S-Body and Gregory. Fully lined with a minimally padded shoulder. A classic length (76cm on an EU size 50) with a trim half waist (53cm), a high armhole and slim sleeve. This is what most stores stock.

Tenero - Our soft model. Unlined with a completely natural shoulder. 1cm shorter in length and 1cm narrower in the half waist.

Primo - Carried by exclusively Haberdash in Chicago. Similar to the Tenero but with a slight grinze in the sleeve head and a narrower half waist (50cm)

Starting in Fall we will be offering the Lorenzo, which is inspired by the Liverano silhouette. It features a slightly extended shoulder, a more generous lapel with a lower gorge, more rounded, open quarters and the angled underarm dart that allows for a cleaner front of coat. In sportcoat form it is unlined and lined for suits.

Nobody bought the maremmana in navy this season. Those doors of Nordstrom (and Vancouver) carry Eidos,

Thought some of you guys might like to know that Nordstrom's entire buy is now online. As I look at it, I'm remembering that Nordstrom actually picked up a bunch of my favorite sportswear pieces. They did a pretty good job of shooting it all too, aside from buttoning all 3 buttons of our knit blazer...btw, if you guys haven't seen that style in real life it is epic. The fabric is an insanely lofty and warm chunky knitted twill wool blend and the silhouette is fantastic. Its slim but still slightly slouchy with no canvas or fusable at all. I've been wearing mine a ton with an indigo tee and jeans.

Cool. Thanks for reply. Had my eye on that jacket actually even if all 3 buttons done up like that hurt my eyes.

Just looking at it again - am I right in thinking its vent-less?

I tried on the Hunting Jacket from Nordstrom, the measurements for a Large lined up with about the EU52 comparing it to NWMA's versions, as a point of reference.  

 

If I had to roughly guess:

 

Small: EU48

Medium: EU50

Large: EU52

X-Large: EU54

 

FYI, the tag on the jacket I tried on showing the Fabric/Size/Model, doesn't state the EU size, but rather the S/M/L/XL/XXL scale.

 

I'd generally follow the advice from the Nordstrom website.  I'd order true to size for your regular S/M/L scale for a trim/slim fit.

 

@NickPollica , please feel free to add any further detail.

 

A lot of great pieces in A/W15 collection.  Props to the Eidos Crew for a well crafted menswear collection.

 

Probably have said this a few times already, but I'm eagerly awaiting the return of the MTO/MTM.

No vents as we wanted to give it more of a sweater-like vibe.

This is a good rule of thumb for more tailored things. The knitwear (polos and henleys) are a bit more flexible.

Damn. That's a hell of a sportswear buy.

Fairly similar to yours! They've done a good job of shooting it, which I think is more than half the battle online.

Without a doubt. It's been one of my top priorities to get that changed but it's proving to be a bit difficult.

Who still carries the Tipo cut?
