    Yea. The fit was a bit big, cause he lost weight, but the shoulders were really nice. Rounded, slightly bold. If I were in NYC, I'd definitely want to try him out, after seeing that today.

    Murl, from your post am I correct in that you actually sized down from your normal suit size for formosa?

    My momma says it's because I'm so damn handsome! Just joking...a little.

    To clarify, I can wear Formosa in two sizes: 52 and 50. The 52 took a lot of tailoring and I just threw the 50 right on. I don't have a "usual" size...50/50 between 52 and 50. Depends on the maker and measurements.

    Same for me. I'm a 52L in the Lorenzo (which I own) and sized down to a 50 in Formosa (which I've only tried on).

    Both of those look fantastic. Probably going forward you would get the 50 though right? I cant wait for inky blue to come in so I can buy moar

    Nice looking Eidos. Too bad it is only for sizing. For reference, what size should I go for with Eidos?

    I doubt it's going back...I like the fabric too much. You should go with a 50.

    If you need navy, get navy. But now you know the fit is excellent.

    Just as a sizing reference: I'm 50 in Formosa and would be 52 in Eidos but it doesn't work for other reasons.

    Yes. Don't want anyone's Bawzkopper status dinged, but get the one you need and will therefore wear a lot.

    @Murlsquirl does look suspiciously like Ridiculously Photogenic Guy...

    Tbh the navy is great, but there will definitely be other navys, both Eidos MTO, future Eidos stock, and Formosa MTO. And if you really really need a navy SC between now and when you get another one, you can always borrow a jacket from a navy suit. But if you really like that fabric on the checked Eidos, this might be your only chance to get it.

    This is pretty much what I'm leaning towards. I don't NEED any jacket or suit. I have no requirement at work for them, I just enjoy them. That's why I think I'll take your advice.

    I don't look like this guy!

    I think the jacket looks even better in this pic...not with what I'm wearing, just the shape.

    Ah Murl, yet another jacket seemingly made for you.

    That's a grey jacket? I guess if you must choose, go for the navy unless you can really afford both. Navy>gray. Just my two cents.

    But you've nailed down the fit. What I like about it is that the quarters are a little less open than in other pics I've seen. I suspect that the Lorenzo, due to the more open quarters, are less forgiving for those of us with wide hips.

    BTW, I assume this special postcard is only for ballers at NMWA...I'm guessing based on who's reporting receiving one.
