    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.

    It won't - we have a lot of knitwear from knitwear makers. With Eidos, we were more interested in the tailored clothing they produce in their own factories : sport coats, suits and overcoats.

    I was impressed by the cuts and Antonio's eye for fabric. It probably took me a lot longer than it should have to sit down and select fabrics for our buy... too many good options! It's clear to me that Antonio has great taste and I am sure that the Eidos stuff will fit nicely in the store's assortment.

    What sort of pricing are you looking at for their standard tailored offerings?

    Some of the colors and cloths look quite nice. I especially like some of the green sweaters. Quick question:From looking at the jacket worn in the photo, it looks to be relatively shapeless. I'm not saying that it lacks waist suppression, but that it seems to lack shaping in the chest, etc. Is that the intended aesthetic or are there some other photos that look substantially different?

    Was trying to see what Bloomindale's has via their website, but nothing comes up searching for Eidos...puzzling...or am I websearch incompetent?

    That brown donegal jacket is lovely...

    Its just the angle, although that model is based on the Liverano silhouette so it lacks the standard front darts you find on most southern Italian jackets. Instead, it has a single diagonal dart that runs from under the arm to mid pocket. This allows the jacket to have a defined waist while maintaining a cleaner front of coat. The overall feeling is almost that of an Italian sack jacket but with much more shape. Its just one of the 4 different models we offer, although I am excited to say that it is the model that Greg will be carrying at No Man Walks Alone.

    Anyone else know where I can supposedly find this stuff online other than Carson Street Clothiers or am I just going to have to wait for NMWA's fall selection?

    We are just shipping so things wont be online for a little while but Carson will have a much bigger offering online shortly. CHCMshop.com will have some sportswear as well as Haberdash and Lawrence Covell's webshops.

    Thanks; that's helpful. Does the chest swell out at all above the waist? Or is it more like Kiton, etc without much curvature in that area?
