For the new suit any way to see BOC or that’s BOC (which seems long for 46R)
Got it all up in this grid, since Virtusize doesn't show all of the measurements we have for suits:

Yes. Because of what I just posted about costs and fabric costs.

That said, we're planning on doing GMTO rounds for those who fit the OTR block well but need different sizes, long, short, etc... or mismatched jacket/trousers sizes for suits
That’s great. Love the blue fresco suit in 50R but would need a 34-35 pants waist.

Had plenty of fun at the NMWA luxeswap. The entire fabric book for NMWA tailoring is great, and pretty much something for everyone.

Good whiskey, and oh @SpooPoker is a such a cool guy that I wanna give him half my wardrobe and watches :foo:
why only half? :sadpanda:

thanks again to @gdl203 @conceptual 4est for being awesome hosts and to all of you who came out today and showed the love. Had so many great conversations and took in so many awesome pieces (Cartier corkscrew, half dozen Formosa suits, Rota galore and more). Our best days are those at NMWA. I also sold (I think) the first NMWA x Carrara MTM, Id like to pat myself on the back for that. 100% funded from the Trade Up. :slayer:

Does this mean no more Formosa?
No. Different cut, different make, different cost. We've been slowing down Formosa RTW because of the slow demand for tailored clothing. We still host them for bespoke every couple of months.

This is a replacement for Eidos tailoring and is an improvement upon it by every possible measure of fit and quality. It's also anchored on an MTM program - which is something we have been missing and is likely to be the center of our tailoring offering (because, again, of the slowing demand for RTW).

I’ve tried on the various iterations of this as Greg and crew have been developing it and I will tell you that it is really, really nice. They MTM swatch assortment is also top notch.

Thanks Antonio. Didn't mean it as a dig on Eidos btw. I think we're on the same page regarding some of the fit/pattern issues and recurring production QA/QC problems... The cut and styling has always been amazing
