    While many of us may be bummed about Antonio's departure from Eidos, I think we're all super excited about his new venture 18 East. Let's use this spot to discuss!

    Happy this exists! To me this is what made the brand (eidos) so successful.

    Took the words right out of my mouth. 18 East looks a lot more like visvim than Isaia.

    Wearing 18 East in a traditional menswear ensemble would be ambitious.

    But who's to say that it can't be done? :cool:

    But yeah, this should probably be moved to SWD.

    @mossrockss yeah, I debated that for a bit. I just ended up putting it here as the eidos thread was in CM. I dunno how many people exclusively browse one or the other, I just subscribe to whatever threads are interesting, but if it would change traffic or whatnot, I don't care either way!

    @LA Guy can you move this over to SWD or should we delete and recreate?

    I do wonder how it will pair with Eidos sportswear, which I have totally been into laltely. Either way, from all I've seen, I think I need to being an early adopter instead of laggard about this.

    I think it will pair easily with many brands that have a utilitarian vibe.

    Yeah, I'll move it over. Though, I do like the idea of how this could look with a classic suit.

    I am sure that will be tried here with no success. Stick with the designer’s intent.

    Where can we get a sneak peak of 18 East?

    I fundamentally disagree with this. I think that the most interesting outfits come from de-contextualizing and re-contextualizing garments. One of the reason I more or less refuse to browse instagram, where most outfits are designed to be at least somewhat "wearable". Who needs that watered down, made for 500K likes from basic bitches/bros, crap? I would rather watch an insane fashion show that shows that garments in an outlandish way that couldn't possibly be translated into "normal life." I doubt many workplaces would allow you to rock out with your cock out like Rick showed his models a few years ago.
