    How come nobody ever carries the 36/46 size?

    Don't most people size up for eidos jackets? So that would be like a 34

    I didn't size up, I think Eidos is fairly true to size at least in suits

    it is a chariot, I believe, from the Phaedrus, a Platonic dialogue. In it, Aristotle uses a winged chariot as part of a lengthy allegory about divinity and the soul.

    Eidos, meanwhile, was used by Plato to describe the true nature of something, its Form. This ultimate reality, this perfection, was hidden from the view of mere mortals.

    @venividivicibj

    I tried the field jacket at Bloomie's. The 38 was definitely too large. Tried a SC in 36 and that seemed just right.

    Does anyone have a list of on-line retailers of Eidos?

    I know of

    NMWA
    Bloomingdale's
    Haberdash
    Stanley Korshak (still carrying?)
    Carson Street (though I think they will soon or have discontinued SCs)

    Just curious whether there are some buys unique to certain stores (SCs in particular).

    Turns out it's just the green shrinks less than the others. I shrunk an orange and white too much. Green is good though. Doh

    The only thing I do with hot water on colored garments is soak them with 2-3 capfuls of Retayne color fixative for about 30 min, then rinse on cold. Wash on cold from there on out.

    Ya, unfortunately the green was pretty long and I wanted to shrink it. Should have clearly been more careful. The green worked out, though
