Ahh understood. Thank you.
@NickPollica Couldn't find through a search of this thread - but is there is a post summarizing the fit of each of the jacket/suit models? I've been able to try on a couple of jackets at Bloomingdales, although I didn't check any tags to figure out the model. This issue I had with those jackets is that in my typical size (52), the upper sleeves were a bit tight, and I experienced horizontal indentation right below the sleeve head (the "divoting" phenomenon mentioned a lot here on SF). I'm not sure if this would be corrected by going up a size or trying a different model, since I didn't have the opportunity to do either. Any model similar to the Isaia Base S? While needing to slim the body, the sleeves work great for me in that model.
Interestingly enough, I take a 50 in the field jacket and can actually fit a sportcoat underneath with no issues with the sleeves.
If the Eidos jackets fit me as well as it does sacafotos, I'd be all over them!
The breakdown exists and its quite detailed. It takes too long to recap again but I will say that the bloomingdales model is the closest to the S body and has roomiest upper sleeve.
It would be a good idea to eventually have this info on the website, now that it's up and running. Would reduce some uncertainty around ordering online, at least.
Post #59 from last year. Does not include NMWA cut.
Also, if someone can dig it up, Antonio posted trouser cuts in the NMWA thread within the past week.
Also, post #700 with a little information about the Ciro cut.
Spoiler: Which fabric is this?
Spoiler: How's the fit if this field jacket?
The shoulders seem slightly wider than I'd like, but the chest/waist are as tight as I can go; it's a linen fabric, so I won't be layering. Should I go down in size if I wanted to wear over a shirt? Or is this good?
pretty sure those are two different fabrics
Yep, the first one is a wool/silk mix, I have that one and like it a lot, but I believe it's from last summer. The next one looks like the hemp one from NMWA.
No I think it's a sharkskin worsted. Antonio modeled it as a suit at Pitti IIRC.
Yep, you're right.
I like the second one. It's a beige/sand color?
looks to me like you need to size down.
I think I found it, or at least pretty close. https://www.stanleykorshak.com/products/Work-2C-Orange-Check-Shirt/15243
