post #26671 of 36394

So finally pulled the trigger on my first Eidos item and it was this beautiful navy suit. Don't know how well it will fit but figure I have to give it a try before ruling Eidos out for me. I just love the lapels but mixed feelings about the very open quarters.

Google luck! Great choice!

Yes. In fact, we're debuting it tomorrow at the SF trunk show and will close orders at the NYC trunk show in Nov 7. We'll also have it online between the two.

If you like the lapels, you should like the quarters too, since they're balanced accordingly. There's a certain vertical symmetry that is required to make the proportions of a jacket work - lapels and quarters go hand in hand.

Awesome, will be checking online and making my order as soon as it goes up.

 

Thanks mate.

I meant this more in regards to not knowing how they will look on me personally. I'm sure you heard the criticism on the Eidos fit in regards to the quarters, so I'm just hoping my thin frame will not make it look as bad as I seen on some with wider hips(if that really was the problem.)Still I personally love how it looks on some, recently becoming a fan of Liverano.

The quarters on the eidos jackets have changed from the initial iteration. The quarters have been refined with the advent of the NMWA model.

Also, heading to Chicago next month, and, as usual, somewhat concerned about the cold weather. Oh wait, I forgot about all my clothes from NMWA! Cannot recommend the Valstar field jacket enough. This is a size 50 (which is TTS for me), and underneath it is the bull's wool in one picture, and the inis meian aran sweater in the other. It is hard to keep this warm without really looking like you are piling on the coats!

I'm headed to England in December and have no warm weather gear. I need that jacket or I will freeze to death...at least that's how I'm trying to justify the purchase.

And a SS scarf? Nice! It may even be cold up here by next month.

What's the most reasonably early time you'll be open for visitors to the trunk show? I'm happy to bring the coffee cheers.gif

That is a legitimate reason. It also looks good without a sweater underneath, which is more than can be said for a lot of heavy outerwear.

It will be cold by my metric! And yep, SS scarf, Merola peccary gloves, big john jeans smile.gif.

Talk to me Newc, is this exact the same field jacket as current run?
post #26682 of 36394
Almost. The back collar of mine is lined in suede. That is about it though... Other than that they look the same!

The coat is a LOT warmer than it looks, as @PatrickR can surely attest.

Poor PatrickR. Patrick R (me) can definitely attest that the coat is warm. It takes me deep into the Chicago winter before I need to switch to the Valstar parka. :fistbump:
