Objectively? I mean I don't think Greg is paying anyone to endorse Formosa if that is what you mean?

I have no Formosa, and have no vested interest in Formosa (or NMWA, for that matter) doing well. I just happen to think their stuff looks pretty awesome, and, with few deviations, looks great on posters here (Six, McFox, Newc, etc)....

I have 6 Formosa sport coats...so I think that's a pretty objective indication. I am happy with the product...and keep buying them. 

 

The MTM suit will be a first...and I expect bespoke is in the very near future...

You should be able to make a decision based on the amount of Formosa suits you have.

I've only seen photos of some of the swatches. It looks like a really interesting book.

It's an adventurous and boldly patterned spring/summer weight book...it does have some nice straightforward hopsack type stuff but the patterns are what make it intriguing to me...the vast majority of cloths are for very casual outfits...
