    I think Antonio had his presentation today for NYFW. On the Haberdashmen instagram, there's a picture of what I am guessing is either the Lorenzo or possibly the new NMWA version? Beautiful lapel and soft shoulder (brown pinstripe). What pics I saw looked really really nice. Congrats.

    @NickPollica , @gdl203 , confirmation that this is the new cut?

    Based on the shoulder, it doesn't look Iike the Lorenzo. It does look very nice though.

    Cannot wait to see the NYFW presentation. I enjoy looking at the presentations for brands I'm moderately interested in, nevermind a brand I support 100% like Eidos.

    The pics from Haberdash look outstanding. Has anyone seen more besides theirs and Eidos' own instagram?

    Dammit. I should have thought of that. Thanks for helping me surmount my own stupidity.

    Also check out c_kimber. A friend of mine based here in Melbourne who has been collaborating with Antonio on some footwear for Eidos.

    Found one of these suits in the Bloomingdales in the Westfield mall in SF. Priced down from $1500 to about $500. Was the only one in my size with a discounted price. Did not end up buying it as it was not quite the color I was looking for but was an amazing suit and maybe I should have bought it anyway. Would've been my first luxury suit :)

    I'd say this is generally good advice; however, it makes the most sense once someone is basically stocked. For the newbies who are coming in from the world of fast-fashion (note: they probably aren't jumping from that to Eidos, but...) sales on better quality stuffs let them upgrade enough to get away from junk. Once you get a generally OK-to-good stable, then change gears from quantity to quality and focus time/resources on upgrading individual items to super high quality/perfect.

    That's not to dissuade anyone from going for pure quality on day 1, but keep in mind - those who are just starting to climb the ladder of better dress are going to make mistakes along the way (Lord knows I did!!) - I'm happy I learned those lessons on good-to-better items from sales/discounts than the higher-end stuff.

    I think it must be the new cut. Looks very similar (lapel/shoulder) to Greg's pic in the NMWA thread.

    The stuff at the show is most likely Ciro model. Our new style is somewhere between Lorenzo and Ciro, with some changes.

    Btw, I probably should have posted this here too. I know several of you wanted to see the new NoMan cut. First peek
