I think Vida just prefers the ... 'Fashion forward'/GQ style

I lost track of whether armani or ferre started the trend; I think the ones pushing the structured shoulder and powerful look a la 30s were ferre and flusser. Armani cuts a more flowy and drapey cut. They were all nice and fresh at the beginning, then at some point the shoulders got bigger and bigger and the buttoning point arrives right at the navel and the jacket length went 33 inches from boc which was reiterated by trickle down effect to the mass market.

owait I thought we're in AAAC

If I'm not totally wrong then the NMWA adjustments happened from f/w14, the very first Eidos at NMWA offering, to s/15. Main change, less open bottom quarters, maybe lower button point, plus a few others one could dig out from this or NMWA's thread.

The extra 25% at Bloomindale's results in some crazy prices on a few previously marked down items. $270 sport coat, $350 parka, etc. Couldn't resist another shirt.

Maybe if I'm not lazy sometime I'll photograph each iteration and highlight the differences: FW14 to SS15 to FW15. I own one of each. It changed every season.

Whats your favourite iteration?

From my experience, whether something looks full or "old man" (if you prefer that term) depends on how the shape of your body and the shape of the garment work together.

 

I've had to donate trousers that measure similar to the Sal model NMWA sells because of how they constantly slip down, even though the front rise seems fine.  

 

I've realized I need pleated trousers with a higher rise than most and can't compromise no matter how attractive something may seem in looks or price.  Braces are also required.

 

Now, high rise pleated trousers would probably seem plenty "old man" on certain members here.  That's because a different cut works better with their body type.

 

Same goes for jackets.  I have closer cut jackets that measure very similar to the Eidos NMWA models.  Going by measurements, pretty much a 54L with the chest and waist let out one inch.

 

My suit is cut fuller, but hangs nicely and works with my body type. On other people it would probably look ridiculous though. 

 

Measurements aren't everything, of course, and I have a jacket that measures very similar to another but feels like I'm wearing nothing at all over my shirt.

For those who have been waiting on Martin Patrick 3 to update their Eidos collection online, one of the reps took it upon himself to photograph the new Eidos collection they received, it's posted here: https://www.facebook.com/robertelderstyle/. I just called and placed an order, he was extremely pleasant to deal with (and no sales tax for NY residents).

Thank you! The indigo popover and basketweave cardigan are awesome.

Thanks for sharing. They got some great stuff. Love all the tailored wear and the field jackets. I will be sad if Eidos ever totally abandons their tailored offerings.

No one said anything about abandoning tailored offerings. It just isn't the focus. Bloomingdales will still offer a deep assortment and the specialty stores that specialize in tailoring will still sell the models they've done well with.

Speaking of Eidos tailoring, will NMWA be getting that beautiful navy hemp wool hopsack blazer?
post #4319 of 6235
I like the cut of the NMWA suit jacket that Greg posted. But what is with the trouser hem? Is the guy expecting a flood?
post #4320 of 6235
Looks like I'll be here in the NOVA area for a bit. Any suggestions which of the DC area Bloomingdale's has the best Eidos selection? Or maybe Saks?
