Nicely done.

And this is a suit in the NMWA cut



Anyone is free to like or dislike the cut. If you prefer those super high notch slimmer lapel cuts that Italian houses marketed to American customers in the early 2000s, you will find plenty of those everywhere. Our cut is a return to classic proportions that many bespoke tailors in Italy have just never moved away from. It doesn't fit well in a J Crew or Nordstrom mail catalog

I'd have a wardrobe full of those if the exchange rate was more favorable! Classic proportions that I really don't think will date at all. Beautiful look.

That sample looks more like the SS15 version of that cut to me than what it changed to last season (and which I presume is how it'll be going forward).

^ You're right, that is certainly an 80's cut. And to me, the notch, being lower than the current norm, shows a resemblance.

The cut/pattern actually did not change from SS15 to FW15 or SS16. How it was executed and manufactured changed last season as it was made in a different factory.

This. Hate the idea of the brand leaving me behind save for what one store essentially can justify purchasing. I guess it's lucky I caught on when there were myriad stores carrying it, I could afford it and get several pieces in the cuts I like.

But hey, I'm not responsible for the success of the brand; what sells is what sells. So in no way begrudge anyone or anything.

Hoping Antonio is wildly successful whatever form that takes. I'm sure there will be some stuff I'll be into each season.

I want to believe you; must be a wild amount of difference within the tolerances on the buttoning point, sleeve width and lapel shape between the ones I own then.

I was there today and they got their initial SS16 Eidos shipment. The stuff from the Eidos e-commerce site hasn't arrived yet.

Got to try on the new field jacket design and I do like it. Not sure if I like it over the original version (of which I have 3), but if I was getting another Eidos FJ it would probably be the new version.

I must be minority I wear 46S in Tipo, and it was never really a true favorite of my, too loose (not necessarily in the not enough waist suppression, just never in the right way), surprisingly Balthazar is good for me and much better than Tipo (in 46R, 46S is just too ridiculous short in Balthazar) in terms of fit, but I do miss the 3 roll to 2 and wider lapel so never end up getting. I only tried the NMWA cut in the double breast suit (the only thing available at trunk show in 46), I like it, only wish it was in short rather than regular and would need to try the single breast version to really see how it would work.

I don't think NMWA is a very 80's cut, by that standard RLBL Anthony (minus the small lapel) is probably the most 80's cut suit out there currently

Awesome! I emailed them and their response was very fast. Excellent service from what I can tell so far...

actually the photo greg posted reminds me more of the 70s if anything. Small notch on wide lapels, lower buttoning points..

Definitely the 1980s. Richard Gere, American Gigolo, Georgio Armani, and the exaggerated drape cut

Do you mean the NMWA cut is an eighties cut?

I think the only characteristic it shares with an 80s cut ala Armani is the buttoning point.

And keep in mind that Armani was trying to replicate the look of the golden age of Hollywood with the fuller cuts and higher trousers. The NMWA cut is closer to classic Neapolitan look (in my humble opinion).
