    Just discovered this on my teal lupo from Gentry. If I recall correctly, I've only worn/washed it 3-4 times =(

    @NickPollica - I got the chocolate brown linen pants from this season at NMWA. The washing label says not to wash it, would you say that's absolute? Can't really see why gentle washing would harm them.

    Great pants by the way!!

    I know you were asking Antonio, but I thought I'd chime in. Washing linen can be a real disaster since the fabric tends to be less colorfast than cotton and it can shrink more (and less predictably).

    Unless you're up for an experiment in laundry, I would recommend dry cleaning linen trousers. They may come out fine, but I have seen linen trousers emerge from the washer not-so-fine.

    I am 1000% in favor of machine washable stuff. But even for me, dress pants seem like a risky proposition—I'd agree that you don't want them to shrink, and I also would worry about damaging the structure in the waistband, etc.

    That said, please try it anyway and report back for the rest of us :stirpot:

    Picked up a couple Eidos jackets from SS14 for a good deal on eBay. Curious what peeps here think. I'm looking to fill out my summer wardrobe—currently I only have my navy raw silk jacket and the brown raw silk suit. So I wanted something lighter. And specifically, I've wanted something in the tan color range for years (have had several over the years, but none have been just right).

    Threw the blue in the order, too, because the photography in the lookbook from that season made it look pretty cool. Never would've chosen a light blue SC, I don't think, but figured what the heck.

    They are Tipo fit, same size as all my other Eidos jackets (primo, tenero, NMWA, lorenzo). Shoulders are surprisingly a bit snug, particularly in the blue jacket, but not too tight that I can't, say, drive a car (my standard shoulder test lol).

    Seller has a 30 day return policy. So I can keep both, send both back, or keep one or the other. I'm letting it sit for a bit to decide. Also waiting to see Antonio's SS17 presentation tomorrow at NYFWM.

    So, thoughts?

    Love both of them. Have the blue and green PoW, gutted that I could never find the teal windowpane in my size.

    Both are very, very warm weather oriented, going best with lighter brown or cream trousers. Neither are as versatile as plain brown or navy, but both make a nice statement without going over the top.

    If you want to slip these into a weekly rotation they may not be versatile enough. If you're cool with a few wears a month during warmer times then I say go for it.

    I sadly mourn the slow death of the Tipo

    Agree with everything FLW says above. I really wish Eidos had made that grey/blue PoW in a suit; it would be spectacular. As it is, it's great with cotton or linen white/cream/sand/taupe trousers and either no tie of a very casual knit. I tried to wear mine in more formal ensembles and it never quite worked.

    ^ @mossrockss I love them both on you, but I prefer the blue one by far (unless it's a 52/42, then I'd return it [​IMG]). I honestly think it would get more wears than a couple times per season.

    Haha, I thought it was a 52 because I remember you saying that a couple weeks/months back you take 52.

    She's got a good eye! Make her happy and keep the blue. Side benefit: You get to keep it.

    I own the teal windowpane and love it. It's a compliment magnet. Keep it unless the fit is intolerable.
