    Love the polo, @9thsymph. Did you get it at Bloomingdale's (presumably, the midtown location)? How much was it?

    This might carry outside of eidos price point but my dream jacket would be the eidos cut but with an very lightweight, open weave cashmere.

    Something that would pack small for traveling, could be used as a layer in cold climates but would still be wearable in late spring.

    Any chance of something like that?

    Antonio, love that cut! Would love to see Eidos Napoli in Europe though.

    They bought our other polo model, the "camicia," which came in a little longer than the lupo but also a hair off spec.


    There is considerably less handwork in Eidos tailoring than Kiton, Attolini and Rubinacci, which is a big part of the reason for the price disparity. I'll put our sportswear up to theirs any day of the week though but that's just me liking what I do :)


    Most European stores we have shown the collection to say it is too American and too expensive. Go figure.

    Such a shame about the stores, didn't know about that. Will be great to see your stand at Pitti Uomo, will you be there in person?

    I also haven't really had the time to dedicate to trying to get the business off the ground there. I will be at Pitti for sure. If you come please stop by and say hello!

    Great, I'll be sure to stop by Bloomingdale's when I'm in NYC on Friday.

    That's interesting. I haven't seen a lot of other brands made in similar countries and of similar quality for much less.

    Thats the strange part. There is literally no one else doing what we do at this price in te wholesale market. The feedback from the european stores has largely been that they dont care about quality of construction. Mist stores would prefer I sell fused jackets.

    When looking at London, there is literally nothing at your price/quality point, let alone with your style. I'm forced to do most of my shopping online/via ebay, because there's nothing I'm interested in in town. Couldn't you use the success of SuitSupply, which sells very decently constructed half canvassed and some fully canvassed suits, as an argument that the modern consumer is much more informed when it comes to the construction and quality of their suits?

    There has to be plenty of room in the market for a store that is positioned above SuitSupply. Nicer cuts, nicer fabrics and fully canvassed, but still for a reasonable price, which is exactly what Eidos offers. For example, Suitsupply's fully canvassed suits sell for £699/$1000, and I'd gladly pay a couple hundred more for something like Eidos. I can't be the only one that thinks that.

    Anyway, I'm sure I know much, much less about the market for menswear than you do, but I can't help but feeling there are plenty of Europeans that would like to get their hands on Eidos. Perhaps an online store might help?
