I liken it to buttoning the top two buttons on a 3/2 roll jacket - people do it but you lose the charm of the silhouette. You want that placket line to form a long roll, not an angular, sharp pull.

Ahhh, good to know. I'm about to pull the trigger, just have heard from literally everybody else to get it in size 50 lol. The one I'm about to get ( at AK Rikks in MI) is not belted. My buddy Adam who is my connection there is probably super annoyed with me as I make him measure them each and I keep waffling back and forth, lol.
I've decided to go with my normal size after comparing measurements with my other outerwear. Thanks for your input!post #3828 of 69902/12/16 at 10:05amQuote:
Oh i see, it's cinched, not belted. derp. my brain obviously did not process that correctlypost #3829 of 69902/12/16 at 11:07amOn the subject of Lupos, I own this season's burgundy version in a size large and can attest it fits slim (I typically take a size small in most brands, medium in slimmer fitting Euro brands or Japanese brands). I ended up with a large for the proper fit, still slim, but not sausage casing slim like the small or overly constricting like the medium was. I did try the small in last year's version and recall it fit similarly to the Large from this season (maybe slightly smaller) from memory though I didn't pick the old one up for some reason. Now that I figured out my sizing in this style, I am wishing I would have been able to get more, I like the style.
Speaking of which, I do have a BNWT medium burgundy Lupo that I am going to be returning this weekend, unless one of you fellow Eidos fans wants it at the nice deal that I picked it up for. I'm also likely going to be listing a size medium basketweave cardigan from last FW15 in B&S soon. If any of you are interested, in these feel free to PM.
EDIT: I also will be returning an awesome pair of Eidos x Kimber Suede Chukka Boot in Chocolate in a size UK 7.5 this weekend as well. These things are phenomenal but unfortunately don't fit my feet that well, a bit too narrow for me. I scored a great deal on these as well that I'd be happy to pass along. I've had my eyes on these all season and have not seen it drop in price anywhere except sporadically during Christmas/Black Friday and even then it wasn't that significant a savings. If you want a good deal, get in touch. If they fit me like I was hoping I'd already be wearing the heck out of them as they are awesome.

THis is helpful. I am also 5'10" but a bit heavier and typically wear 54R jackets since I need 19" between shoulder seams. There is no way i could fit into Lupo size L, would I need XL or XXL?
Does anyone have mesurement for Lupo in XL or XXL?

I'm incredibly biased about what to look out for as I designed the collection and think its all great. One thing that we did really well with that will be available this season only is our "Dickie" shirt. Its a version of the woven lupo shirt the armoury offered the first spring but with a full placket, short sleeves and a mitred, extended waistband style hem. Full disclosure - The style is 100% lifted from Dickie Greenleaf's two tone Janzen beach shirt in The Talented Mr. Ripley.
I really love the "stories" put together on ediosnapoli.com . Only suggestion would be to add captions to the images so I know how to describe the item I'm looking for when searching various retailers.B&S (Click to show)I picked up a number of shirts and a pair of pants at SF Bloomingdales, put up a few that didn't work out on B&S.post #3838 of 69902/12/16 at 7:11pmpost #3839 of 69902/12/16 at 9:52pmpost #3840 of 69902/13/16 at 4:13am
