There is a difference but I think it's exaggerated due to individual's hip size. Taka has skinny hips and Antonio is folding his arms.

Look at this Liverano

Looks exactly the same cut to me. The difference is that Ethan's is bespoke, while Gregs is RTW and probably not suitable for his body type. He needs a longer and maybe even slightly bigger jacket than that one.

^ MF, I don't think those pictures demonstrate anything. He has his hands in his pocket in every pic!

In yours he has his arms crossed, that's way worse.

Here his hand is only in one pocket. Can't you mentally duplicate the one quarter that's laying normally to see how it would look like?

In the other pic he's simply pulling the jacket closed, very close to the actual buttoning position, so the quarters are pretty similar to how they would be it if it were buttoned normally.

I'm still voting for actually trying it on. I'm hoping to.

One is bespoke the other is ready to wear. If Greg's was bespoke they will adjust the cut for his body.

I think the Eidos is fantastic and I am sure I'll be able to rock it.

Maybe an "L" length jacket would alleviate the quarters issue on gdl? Is that a regular or long length jacket? Eidos seems to run short. I'm normally a regular but would hazard I'd need a long.

And I told you, as has Greg, why that's not a valid comparison. You're comparing bespoke vs RTW. I bet if Greg got Eidos MTM in that cut it would look really similar to the liverano cut, because they would be able to adjust the quarters for his self proclaimed wider hips, and add some length to the body.

Anyway, we'll have to wait and see till the actual collection is online and we can see some good pics and maybe try it on ourselves before we can judge.

It could also be that the rounded quarters are "risky" for a ready-to-wear jacket

There's a great chance that a person's body type could throw the cut out of whack. On the other hand, a RTW jacket with less rounded quarters might be more "forgiving."

What I was just getting at. The rounded quarters might not be great for RTW

I fully agree with you. The Eidos cut will be risky for guys with drop 5 and below. The fit issue can possibly be mitigated with longer jackets and higher waist suppression.

The cut is not for everyone. It has a distinctive style (just like its inspiration). Some will fall in love with it and find that to be a fantastic opportunity to get this style at very palatable RTW prices. This is the reason why decided to carry Eidos.

For those who don't like it, there are hundreds of other styles, with higher gorges and closer quarters out there. Hundreds of options for "less risky" cuts, so that shouldn't give anyone heartburns.

Edit: answering question above : 4 sport coats (navy donegal, check as pictured, green/copper horse blanket, and gun check) ; 3 suits (Prince of Wales, navy, and brown/black LP mini check) ; 3 overcoats (navy tweed, db grey check and beige herringbone tweed). Another unique offering is that all suits come with vests for those (like me) who want to rock them like this :

I don't mean to disparage Eidos/NMWA, of course. Just making a set of observations related to personal style

That's awesome! Same size as the the Tipo cut? Any tentative release date?
