Inis is nice. Nice selections @Steel28
Thanks Mr Moo and Frank. Quality is quality.
The feeling when you wear artisanal piece is great. The cost is easy to forget.
i think that it starts at $1,360 for certain fabrics after the 20% off.
Well sign me up for that then. Hopefully they have something cool in the tweed family!
Also finalists for the Formosa GMTO fall/winter sport coat fabrics are up:
Vote for any that you'd be interested in.
Unbel, remind me what flexibility there is in sizing? E.g. is one limited to 46, 48, 50, and perhaps L and S, or are in-between sizes available?
Definitely L and S and sizes outside the range that we normally carry. Still not sure about odd sizes (checking now) There are no odd sizes but really the difference between a 50 and 52 is small enough that I think just about everybody is going to either fit well into one of them, or just not be a good fit for this cut generally and therefore not really much better off with a 51. Difference between a 51 and 52 is probably less than the margin for error in most dimensions.
Thrilled to report that sizing up on the Port Flannel one size and then washing and drying to shrink a bit worked perfectly!! I would say it's now about almost perfectly between the original size and the size down. Maybe closer to within 25% of the size down. I could not be more pleased with the fit and now only wish moar were available!!
I had the opportunity to meet Antonio Ciongoli of Eidos last month. A brief summary:
Antonio was very warm and patient with me. We spent hours talking about various things, including his line. It was quite the experience to listen to him talk about his inspirations. I stood in front of the mirror for literally hours while Antonio grabbed everything--from overcoats to shirts--for me to try on. For each piece, he kindly explained the "why" behind every choice/design. Let me just say--wow!
The MTM Process
I wasn't planning on ordering anything, but Antonio's passion and enthusiasm quickly changed that. (Antonio was not pushy at all. In fact, he advised me to commission only one suit for my first order.) I was deciding between two models, and since the store didn't carry the Lorenzo model, Antonio graciously let me try on his jacket (and high-rise pants!) in the Ciro (similar to the Lorenzo) model. The entire process was made very simple. Highly enjoyable!
I was quoted "6-8 weeks," so I haven't received my suit yet. But from every Eidos piece I've seen, I know it's going to be great! Incredibly value, in my opinion.
Drake's special edition (with suit that's barely holding on to its place in my closet). I'm quite pleased that Greg decided to have it made even though it didn't get the most votes.
Alright, is it just me, or does anyone else mistake this for one of those pictures of the Pope praying, at first glance?
Bless NMWA father 4 they have stunted on these affili8s
I love the term "stunt". I'm pretty sure that if I use it, you'll feel the need to put up that Inigo Montoya gif. So you may as well get it over with.
Delighted to see the Formosa gray flannel suit available in my size. Looking forward to trying this maker.
You'll be pleased.
