If this doesn't work out, I agree with your move to check out a blue herringbone or a blue textured SC. I was thinking grey but understand that they're not everyones cup of tea but I'd like to get a grey textured sc one day.

Brooks Brothers makes a charcoal herringbone in the Fitzgerald cut that gets knocked down to like $198 whenever it goes on sale. Just an FYI.

What about the NMWA Fox Flannel blue herringbone? Or trying to keep the cost lower than that?

jungle, i really like the eidos look, and nick pollica in WAYWRN does it very well, but i hear its a much more modern/trendy cut. on the shorter side and probably cut close to the body. just worth keeping in mind.

Give them a try. I am also going to try Eidos but only when NMWA starts carrying the liverano cut with the wide lapels and more rounded quarters.

I think the regular ones won't work for me.

Since Spain is getting destroyed, must comment...love that jacket.

I tried on some Eidos suits at Carson Street in January. It wasn't a good cut for me. I tried multiple sizes and had bunching under the armholes in every one. The materials and construction were great for the price point though. I'll give the NMWA models a look in the fall.

What do we know about the Eidos SCs coming to NMWA? Are there different cuts within Eidos and if so...? @gdl203 help?

They will all have the Liverano like cut if I'm correct, and they will have long sizes.

Thats what I was thinking. frown.gif

@tm79 are you talking about the formosa suit? Or do you have a link of what you're talking about? I must be missing it on their site or something.

I don't know if I could handle that. I agreed to do ours in a minty green (wifes favorite color) but I can tolerate it. We put up some Art Nouveau Game of Thrones prints that I think work with it.

I'm largely in charge of picking out furniture and selecting art. I grew up with parents obsessed with interior design and general aesthetics (there were no family pictures anywhere in our house because they didn't really match the feel of the place). My wife grew up with Korean parents.

We are inheriting a nice 2 person couch (I lack the vocabulary to explain why it is nice, but I think they paid around 3-4k for it a few years ago...come to think of it, I dont know if that is expensive for a couch. Beautiful brown red leather.) My wife wanted to put a cushion shaped like a puppy on it. We agreed it wasn't happening.

Do any of you guys know if you can wash either by hand or machine/delicate cycle cotton knit ties? I would think so but I've never done so.

I've succesfully hand washed silk knits: wash them with mild detergent, very gently squeeze out some of the excess water and then lay them flat to dry. Should work with cotton as well, I guess...

Delicate wash with cold water.
