Eidos Napoli - Page 381

Is the wool/silk fabric of the drawsting durable? I'm looking at picking up either a tenero or augusto in that same material, but am wondering if the fabric will stretch or tear easily with use. Also, is it appropriate for 3 seasons?

Eidos wool/silk pants are amazing. Size 32 is perfect fit, very sharp.

I found them a bit big at the waist as was mentioned. I would probably say size down if you don't have thunder thighs. They didn't work out for me but the fabric is indeed nice.

Yes, i agree about the waist being a bit wide but this is by design. Once you have drawstrings tightened it's actually great fit. No way you can size down even without thunder thighs. Be careful.

They have to be big in the waist to fit over the hips as there is no elastic in the waistband and the waistband doesn't have a button closure. They can be easily cinched down with the drawstring. I would defintely not suggest sizing down.

Getting back into tailored/classic clothing after a hiatus of 7 years, was fairly active here and my wardrobe is decent (RLPL, castangia, borelli, 1 attolini et cetera). Some pieces from when I was relatively slim, some during my fuller years, having lost 40 pounds most can't be tailored to my current size.

Long into to get to the point. I went to Bloomingdales to try on an odd sport jacket, light brown, gourgeous. Amazing stuff, absolutely fell in love with it. The 38r fit like perfect. Unfoetbeyl alog with the weight loss my disposable capital has decreased and while 1200 for this level of sport coat is very reasonable I can't justufy it. I found a jacket I love for deep discount but it's a 40r. I see from some sources the 38r shoulder length is 18.1 and 40r is 18.3, think that should do and I can have my tailor adjust the chest and waist? Thoughts from others that have had to size up?

It's good to be back (bad for the wallet). I wish I could support the brand buying it full retail Nick, wonderful stuff.

One of you in a size 38/40 (measurements seem to run big) better pick this up in order to prevent me from squeezing myself into it.

If anybody wants to get rid of any green casentino outerwear give me a shout. So sad I missed out on that.

Well like a dummy I didnt read that there were detailed measurement haha

I think the shoulder is close enough and the rest is easily tailored to match. curious how closely these will match the Bloomingdale's 38R, that I assume is a F/W 16. These cant be older than S/S 14 so assuming the fits are close.

Jacket lenght :

75 cm ( 29.53" )

@NickPollica

First, honored that you're heading this way. Would love to meet you.

For lodging, staying around Guerrero and 14th-16th is a good bet, or even 19th and Alabama. Both are central and walkable hoods, not too far from 18th & Sanchez where Unionmade is. Both have neighborhood bars and cafes to start your day with.

The view from Liberty Hill (roughly Dolores and 20th) is superb and again, walking distance to Unionmade.

The other area I highly recommend is Upper Haight or Inner Sunset (5th-12th along Irving). Great vibe and you're next to the famous Golden Gate Park, which is larger than Central Park and has botanical gardens, Japanese Tea Gardens, and the De Young Museum. Plus a pretty lake you can rent pedal boats on.

And I'll hook you up with food/bev recs smile.gif

Thanks to everyone for the recommendations - I am excited to visit.

Speaking of visits - for all you Stockholm based guys, I am in route (currently sitting in the Copenhagen airport) and will arrive tonight until Sunday. Marcus has my schedule pretty booked up but he's hosting an open house on Saturday. Please feel free to stop by and introduce yourself!

Bad pic but the Capris have landed in Toronto. Very happy with them, really unbelievably comfortable right out of the box.

Those look awesome.

Wonder if someone can enlighten me to what season this jacket may be from?

I purchased it from eBay



Jacket is nice, doesn't fit or drape as well as the one I tried at Bloomingdales, that could be because of the fabric (40 silk, 35 Linen, 25 wool) and a different model (midsection is 1/4-1/2 smaller).

Browsing yoox, to my surprise, is see this jacket that seems similar, nie exact (save patch vs flap) with the same fabric from Luigi Bianch Mantova.



i have an LBM jacket and ii is certainly not as nice as the edios (read fused) and the silhouette is also lacking in comparison.

I guess my question is the Edios I picked up the genuine article and the houses just happen to acquire the same fabric and design similar jackets?


As a side note: I also picked up this other Eidos jacket that I absolutely LOVE the fabric. I want to make a giant blanket of this fabric and live in it.
