    The nero was a model we developed for stores that didn't want to get behind a longer length. It's the tipo but 1.5cm shorter. Fun fact - the name Nero is significant here. Anyone know why?

    .

    Saying you prefer the the NMWA model to the Ciro is kind of silly as they are very, very similar.

    Because he cut his own life short? Nero was actually kind of a dandy. Supposedly used to watch gladiatorial games through a large emerald he brought with him for this purpose.

    Nope - because he played the fiddle while the city of Rome burned.

    It's been a minute - largely due to the fact that its been a minute since I've worn anything resembling proper tailoring. That said, I'm (semi) respectable today because I'm headed to Bloomingdales NYC's tailored clothing event tonight at their 59th St. store from 6:30-8:30. If you're in the area and would like to chat please stop by and say hi.

    Ha...I wonder how many of the stores got it.

    Will you come out with an equestrian model and call it the Caligula?

    Dang. I was working on a line of reasoning following that he's buried in what's now Villa Borghese in Rome, a place also featured in one of the Hitman video games. The Hitman games are, of course, made by...

    Eidos!

    Have you taken these shoes off in the last two months? ;) You need to be commended for your dedication to testing new products! Looks great :)

    @NickPollica Do you know if any retailers besides NMWA will have RTW Sal pants this season?

    The other site needs to step up its picture taking game, then. Doesn't look that way in that format. Good to know, though.

    Guess I'll stop trying to be so silly

    Stopped by Carson Street Clothiers over the weekend to check out some Eidos stuff from my summer wedding. I had the chance to work with Lance - very nice guy, good service.

    Store was really neat and I settled on a Tipo cut. Eidos fit me really nicely OTR. Going to wait for the S/S 2015 swatches to come in to see what's in store for the summer.

    Can't wait!
