    I am wearing my 54R Eidos today and also have an Eidos shirt in 16.5/42. These fit really well.

    My final Eidos piece (for now) is a Lupo polo - in size XL. It also fits really well - I would suggest that is the best size for you.

    Thanks everyone for the help, looks like XL is the way to go. @Pink Socks What's your heigh / how do you find the length of the shirt?

    The L looks long enough on @hookem12387 which worries me because I'm 5'11. I have a good feeling I'll have to get the polo hemmed shorter.

    @comfortablydumb I have a feeling you'll have to get it shortened. I wouldn't want the large any longer on me and that's with a few extra inches

    I much prefer Tipo and the new Lorenzo(?) that NMWA is carrying.

    I'm sure the fabrics are nice on those jackets but the cut doesn't do a whole lot for me.

    The new NMWA/Eidos cut is quite lovely, especially closing the quarters a bit.

    One really has to try on the different cuts for fit, tho...

    Yes, I think it will be hard to beat the new NMWA cut. The Tenero does have pretty nice lapels when you try it on in person, those pictures don't do justice.

    Is there a significant difference in fit between these two/three fits and the Tipo from Bloomingdales?

    I have a Tenero (blue donegal double-breasted) and a few Tipos in 54R and I find I enjoy wearing the Tipos more. The Tenero is noticeably slimmer through the chest and arms, and a bit shorter as well, but in the actual jacket length as well as the sleeves. Still a great jacket, but I definitely prefer the Tipo fit. Would love to try the Lorezno / Ciro.

    Thanks for the shout out, @ScottMC You're right; our product images do need some work. We've only been in business since August, and we're still working out all the e-commerce kinks (such as mislabeling the Ciro suit as a Primo).

    Regarding Tenero vs. Tipo, we found that the customers in our brick-and-mortar shop really loved the fit of the Tenero last season, so that's why I chose that model.

    We're taking a risk with the Ciro suit; it's our attempt at pushing Nashville guys out of the Thom Browne/Mad Men thing. When I put on the jacket, it instantly made me stand straighter and feel powerful, for lack of a better word. It's really something you have to try on to fully understand. I think @NickPollica knocked it out of the park, and we've already had some very positive customer feedback.

    So excited to have Eidos in our store; if anybody has any other questions about our product mix, I'm more that happy to answer via PM.

    -Jim

    Anyone have any idea what the 'Nero' fit at Carson St is like? To me it looks pretty much identical to the Tipo, wondering what the differences are.

    6 foot / 183cm - length perfect for me. Not too short like some other brands.

    @NickPollica Does Eidos do MTO trousers? Or only suits/jackets?

    I was told by Quinton that you can do MTO trousers through someone like NMWA.
