@NickPollica
: what's the measurement on a 38/48 for the chest in the Tipo?

The lorenzo is definitely NOT drapier than the tipo. The lorenzo is actually narrower through the half waist (52cm on an eu50 as opposed to 53cm on the Tipo). That said, the shoulder expression is softer and slightly more extended with much rounder lines throughout.

Thanks for the information Nick. You've worn both obviously...any chance you have a pic of both that can be posted side by side? I think I've seen you in a brown donegal that had wider lapels and lower gorge than the Tipo, probably taken at Pitti.

Brown Tweed looks awesome. What is the weight on that Nick?

Interesting take.  Isn't Lorenzo roomier in the chest than Tipo?   I found the chest to swell more on the former than the latter.  Hence my comment on drape vs lean chest.

Sorry to distract from the sales alerts for a minute but here are a few (pretty bad) shots of the Lorenzo cut on me.  I tried to show the chest swell on some pics but it's not easy to capture without a 3D view of things.  Maybe that helps you guys understand what this cut looks like.

That looks pretty fantastic when worn unbuttoned. Not a fan of it buttoned (strikes me as a bit too "morning formal" silhouette), but luckily I almost never wear my jackets buttoned. Can't wait to see the fabrics and configurations for Fall, Greg.

Some good news for Torontonians!

 

I e-mailed GotStyle this morning asking when the Eidos fw14 collection would be in, and what they would stock. They replied saying it should all be in in 2-3 weeks or so and they "will be carrying the complete collection of Edios, including suits, sportcoats, dress shirts, neckwear and sportswear."

 

They also mentioned that Antonio would be coming to the store sometime in fall to do a trunk show. Very cool!

Well Greg, when you're chiseled from marble like you and me, you can get away with the rounder silhouette of an open jacket. Have to give the other guys a chance, after all.

I need Justin's credit card info....it obviously doesn't have a limit.

Greg, I hope the sizing of those work for me because I will be ordering one if they do.
