This is my first Eidos purchase, and my first NMWA purchase. I was unsure of buying this (due to the cost, and my unfamiliarity, and it was non-returnable). I have not seen many detailed reviews of similar NMWA Eidos suits, so I thought this might be helpful for someone else who might be on the fence.
For reference, I prefer an Italian cut suit with a slim profile and soft shoulders. My favorite suits so far that I own are Caruso and Ma.Co.. I was looking for something with slightly wider lapels and higher rise trousers, and this seemed to fit the bill.
This is described as a "Mixed navy suit with subtle nailhead weave, 12 oz wool", on sale recently for 981. It shipped within 4 business days for free, in a large box, with a substantial wooden hanger, a cloth garment bag, and a small box of chocolates. I did not receive an email regarding shipping notice or tracking information, so that was slightly disconcerting, but it worked out fine for me because the shipping was very quick.
FABRIC and CONSTRUCTION: The cloth is medium weight, soft (not extremely soft), and seems fairly warm. The color and pattern are true to the pictures on the website, and exactly what I expected. It is slightly brighter than true navy, but nothing close to a bright blue.
It is 100% wool from VBC and fully lined. The shoulders have no padding that I can feel. The trousers are flat front, with an extended waist tab.
FIT (This is BEFORE any alterations):
This is a size 36R (46IT). I am 67.5" tall and weigh 130 lbs. I re-measured the suit trying to use the same technique as described on the website, but my result was a half inch shorter in the shoulder and jacket length.
I am satisfied with the fit in the shoulders, jacket length, and waist. (The length might be borderline long). There is enough room in the chest to feel comfortable, and I don't see any collar gap or bowing lapels. The button stance is slightly lower than my other suits, but I think it looks more classic. I will need to shorten the sleeves and finish the trousers, but I was not planning on any further alterations. The trouser waist is slightly snug but not enough to require letting out.
The back (without alteration) looks cleaner than any of my other suits:
Shirt is Ledbury, and tie is Drake's.
Overall, I like this suit very much, especially the lapels, soft shoulder, jacket length, and trouser rise. I was expecting more rounded shoulder appearance and a fuller lapel roll, but maybe this was from being packed and folded. The color is perfect and very versatile for daily wear. The fabric is nice, but I would not say it was exceptional. The weight is heavy enough for cool weather, but probably not appropriate for summer heat.
In terms of quality, I think this is a very good value, and I would recommend it.
