    Wait, you smell that?
    Anyone with the Eidos Ghurka shorts feeling they are sized on the smaller side? I ordered a 34, which is what I wear in all Eidos trousers, and I can't even get the shorts close to buttoning or getting the side straps in. And this is me pulling them up to (and even over) my natural waist. They feel like 32s, if that. Is this a case I should have sized up?

    Very interesting, I always assumed the Lorenzo had a wider leg opening.

    Hate on pleats is far more groupthink than hate on polos ever was.

    Wow, that BBJ Haori cardigan disappeared quickly after it came back in stock. Can't say that I'm too surprised, though.

    But that's okay: I picked up something else from the shop a little while ago. [​IMG]

    not for me. just grew up seeing bad pleats everywhere. and they always looked bad on me—never fit right, always gaping, never hanging well, always badly cut. but then again, this is my first pair from a "respectable" maker. who knows, maybe all those mens wearhouse suits i wore through my teen years and early 20s aren't as bad as i remember.




    nah.




    yes, and i personally do not like reverse pleats. forward pleats only for me, which are even rarer in the OTR world.

    Well, one cheap experiment is to buy the Polo Ralph Lauren Dalton off eBay and slim down the leg. They're the old corneliani good stuff. One of my old Polo II suits was with pleats and decide to slim down instead convert, looks pretty good in the end.

    I've acquired 3 ROTA lightweight(?) trousers this month and have to say that they fit like bawwws without any alterations needed, except ham.
    Superb quality trousers.

    hmmm

    i've got a pair of navy pleated Polo suit trousers that were included with a Corneliani-made jacket as a suit from eBay several years ago. The fabrics did not match, lol, so I got a partial refund but they didn't want the pants back. I'll give them a look, though what'm I going to do with orphaned navy suit pants? lol. sold the Polo jacket a couple years ago.

    Damn.. that Ddugoff Philip jacket is looking amazing. My Ddugoff jacket from last season is my most complemented piece of outerwear. Pictures did not do it justice.

    The most exciting drop of this season for me so far is the restock of the Frank Clegg signature duffle. It is finally on its way to me!

    Sizing guidance

    As a general rule, we caution anyone who has not had the chance to try on the Sartoria Formosa cut and size it properly, against ordering anything made to order. That said, if you want to go ahead and are not sure of your size, here is some general guidance & measurements (there will ALWAYS be some variation). In addition, we strongly suggest to engage in a sizing discussion here or in the No Man affiliate thread with other Formosa customers, as you will surely be able to get good feedback from others with a similar build

    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]



    Pre-Order Pricing



    We are offering a special price for pre-orders, through a 15% coupon (works only on these pre-orders) : enter PREORDER15 at checkout.

    Note that the prices paid here for pre-orders are 50% of the total price. The balance is due when the garment is ready to ship.

    Pre-Order Window


    Pre-orders are open for one week only until April 9th. After that, we will send the group order to Sartoria Formosa so that they can start procuring fabric and cutting.


    Delivery Window


    The garments are expected to be finished and delivered to us throughout the months of September & October. We will endeavor to provide timing update as the production process advances.
