Eidos Napoli - Page 382

post #5716 of 6271
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.

Can't imagine someone be bothered enough to create fake Eidos(especially faking it out of LBM which a lot people know about in the first place) most likely yours was a one off sample, which model is it

Ps that pattern isn't that special pretty sure I remembered seeing Paul Stuart, Isaia and perhaps more who have done it (though might not be exactly the same fabric)

Thanks, I figured it was a stretch that it could be a fake, given the craftsmanship not sure I would care either wink.gif

The model is "primo". I wouldn't think the pattern would be something completely unique but it's the exact cloth.

My thought was that possibly both jackets were made in the same shop in Italy and possibly I was getting a model, that, as you said, is a one off and not the level of the construction, silhouette as finishes found in "mainstream" Eidos. That seems unlikely as I don't see Isiaia, Edios and LBM all being related. The jackets though are very similar looking (lapel width, gourge height, button stance er cetera)

In any event I like both jackets and am keeping both; was more curious than anything on the provenance of this piece.

Antonio can correct me if I'm wrong, but Isaia most likely produced this (or Michaelangelo).

It doesn't fit the same as the Bloomies one bc the model—Primo—is the slimmest Eidos has produced, and generally not available. It's slimmer, specifically, so that is likely the cause of the difference in fit (Drape as you put it).

Primo is actually my favorite eidos model. Nearly perfect. And I've been eyeing that green jacket in my size.

Fabrics are rarely exclusive to one and only maker.
They simply used the same cloth, there's nothing unusual in that.

The fabric was from our Ischia collection and it was open piece goods from the mill E. Thomas. Isaia also had it in their collection and I'm not suprised to see LBM used it as well as it is a beautiful cloth. We design a lot of exclusive textiles at this point but I will throw in an open goods fabric if it fits in with our seasonal colors and this one did.

Matera arrived and the fit is perfect for me (usual size 50). I can where it with a t-shirt or heavy layering. Thanks to all the rain on the East Coast I began to break it properly today.

All this Matera talk is making me interested...Anyone have hot tips on where to score a size 46? Checked with MP3 and Gentry, but no luck in my size, unfortunately.

Antonio, very much appreciate the reply. The cloth is indeed stunning, as is all of your collections. Love the jackets and the brand, you have a very happy new customer.

Best

Alex- thanks for your input, just never saw this before so it took me back a bit is all. Guess it's comman place. The fabric and color is very nice so I guess it no surprise it was used by others.

Moss- thanks for your feedback as well. it certainly is trimmer than the Bloomingdales one, letting out 1/2 inch from the waist should do it for me. It is otherwise perfect. I was forced into a 40r to get the other jacket which is large and cut fuller. I like it well enough to have the chest and waist taken in.

If you are considering the green jacket I would grab it, the color and pattern is stunning. Has a light weave, quarter lined, perfect spring summer.

I think Haberdash sold this, if I remember correctly. I tried it on at one time and loved it. Went back and my size was gone.

I got a preview of Marcus Malmborg's new webshop this morning (which should be live by midweek at the latest). Fans of proper Eidos tailoring (read Tenero, Ciro and Sal trousers) should get excited. His assortment is amazing.
