    Thanks - not sure about Harrolds but I will ask next time I am in there.

    I spoke with my good friend Christian Kimber (http://christiankimber.com/) who works for Henry Buck about Eidos. He met Antonio at Pitti. I think given the Australian market Henry Bucks are waiting to see the brand grow and become more recognisable before they would stock it. Unfortunate but understandable. I think they will be stocking Isaia though

    That's funny - I was thinking Henry Buck, but my understanding was they only sold high end shoes and accessories.

    Glad to hear Buck has expanded.

    Good luck --- I'm sure you could also find someone to buy as your proxy.

    If there's something you're looking for, let me know - or let @np know --- he can have a sales associate at Bloomingdales in NYC hold it for you (send you a phone pic), and you could do a CC order.

    Thanks GG. Henry Bucks main store is actually closed at the moment, they are planning a major reopening soon (April I think) - a lot more brands, targeting a younger market in the upstairs store, with the traditional stuff downstairs.

    Are you Australian? I am a Scot who has been living in Melbourne for the last 6 years.

    In terms of Eidos I can find the stuff online (or at least I should be able to when the new collection is released). it is more that I would love to be able to handle and try on pretty much the whole collection before deciding what to buy. Thanks for the offer though - I might take you up if things prove difficult to get.

    Need to sell some stuff on eBay before any new purchases anyway.

    Can anyone talk about the construction of the jackets?

    Is there and hand tailoring in the collar, shoulders or buttonholes? I love the aesthetic of Eidos but haven't been able to find out about their construction.

    Hopefully someone will start carrying the line in Miami so I can take a look at them.

    No Miami doors yet. The amount of hand tailoring on our garments is minimal which is reflected by the price. Eidos is a mostly machine stitched fully canvassed garment.

    Eidos will be at No Man Walks Alone starting in the fall (i.e. the collection that was just at Pitti).

    Thanks for the report. I have a feeling that Eidos is poised to become the next forum darling.

    I would love to try one on in person, and for what's its worth the Bloomingdales in Aventura Mall seems like a great location to carry the line down here.

    Yes, too bad. Eidos stuff went away for a couple hundreds of euro on yoox before the hype.

    The yoox stuff was a different make than what we are doing now. Originally, Eidos was the name of the washed and dyed and soft jacket fabric collection sold by our factory. All the jackets were made with a fused construction to be a soft as possible. I changed that when they hired me so that they only fused jackets you can buy with an Eidos label are washed and dyed (which have to be fused because the canvas and jacket fabric shrink differently).

    I look forward to seeing more of the Florentine styled sport coats. I notice you have a barchetta breast pocket on your coat. Is that the typical Florentine style?

    Nice. Hope that green sweater makes it in.

    The designs look good.
    But it's a shame they use real fur (correct me if it's faux fur). For that I could never purchase or recommend.
