Saw that the reverse sweatshirt is really cheap on bloomies, so feel the need to endorse it. http://www1.bloomingdales.com/shop/product/eidos-pine-bark-reverseloopback-terry-crewneck-sweatshirt?ID=1632428&CategoryID=#fn=spp%3D6

Here's a bad pic of it in action a couple weeks ago, bonus pic in the dickie shirt (in Croatia)




Why not one more eidos shot from the trip, linen shirt

I'm looking for a navy Fresco jacket in a 40r. Is this the appropriate place for this? If so, does anyone have a link to one or just have one period? 

 

Thanks

thanks! tenero makes sense, although it's a 2-btn so was thrown off.

Just picked this one up from Bloomies, and based on what Moss said about what's sold there I would assume it's the Balthazar? But it's 2-button and quarter-lined, the latter being something Nick said was only on the Tipo? I checked the Bloomies website but that's also strange because the same fabric there is a 3r2 with besom hip pockets: http://www1.bloomingdales.com/shop/product/eidos-glen-plaid-slim-fit-sport-coat?ID=1605002

Check the tag in the inner breast pocket. It will have the name on it

This makes me smile - I know Victor well but he's ill-informed. Cook got it from Agyesh, who got it from me. We used to call that the "button-back," but what you see in that photo is the strange evolution of something I started doing around 2008 for a very real purpose, which was to try and make double breasted jackets easier to wear open. I started doing this with peacoats - I had all the interior buttonholes cut so I could button the jackets back onto themselves and there wouldn't be so much fabric hanging around. I don't know if I was the first one to do this but Agyesh Madan (formerly of Isaia, Stoffa) saw me do it and began to do it as well. Pitti photos of him wearing coats like that exploded and suddenly variations of it were everywhere. It only really works on casual and unstructured things because canvas makes the lapel buckle in an awkward way. The hook on that jacket was there so that you could button both sides back and still keep the jacket semi-closed. Not my best idea...fussy at best and incredibly contrived at worst. Its all fun though.

In other news, apparently Haymakers and Haberdash ordered the Primo fully and quarter lined for one season without my knowledge. Who knew? For those of you ordering, it's very, very slim but the shoulder is epic.

Ha, great story! "It's all fun" is definitely my approach to menswear. I appreciate you keeping it that way

And to the Primo: Glad something so great went under your nose—the one I own, which is the one from Haymakers, is my favorite Eidos jacket hands down. Fully lined though it may be smile.gif

Grazie mille @NickPollica! Of course I should've known that Agyesh would fit into the story somewhere.

Processed By eBay with ImageMagick, z1.1.0. ||B2

Just received my Eidos jacket. Believe or not, the tag says the cut it's primo. It's made from medium navy hospack cloth (don't know the brand, I wouldn't say it's vbc), which I'd say it's ok for sprig& autum and maybe early winter. Shoulders features the spalla camicia and jacket it's 3 button rolled.

I purchased it from eBay, and looks that the seller has a lot of Eidos stuff (shipping from Italy). Most accurate picture it's the fourth one. Sorry for the crappy iPhone pics

Awesome dude. Great jacket. I'm wearing mine today (which is Tenero), and it is my second favorite Eidos jacket.

Congrats!

They are the Singleton snuff suede loafers from Polo, made by Allen Edmonds.

Thanks to whoever it was that mentioned an ebay seller shipping from Italy.

 

I just checked and couldn't resist this beauty in 100% linen in the Ciro cut for a steal.  The NMWA/Lorenzo is my favourite cut, so this was a no brainer at the price. There are also a 52 and 50 available, I believe!

 

 

I'm 99% sure I have the matching trousers from SS15 already, as an added bonus :slayer:

That Italian Ebayer has some...interesting stock

"Men's Paisley bikini new" (I should hope so)
