    Fantastic. Curious how that compares to the Tipo cut that you picked up (e.g. the navy donegal...you kept it?). I know the feature differences, but more interested in how the two jackets sit on the wearer.

    I'd be curious to see a side by side pic if you feel like putting them both on at some point.

    Hello @NickPollica

    I have a 36/46R Tipo from last season which was a great fit in the shoulders & chest, but I had to take in the waist - what size Tenero do you think I should try?

    Aware that you have mentioned in the past that the Tenero actually has a narrower waist, and others have mentioned that it is slimmer overall, but it would be great if you could elaborate a little more. I think the Tenero would be too tight for me in the same size if the shoulders & chest were also slimmer

    Also, are your knit ties actually 63" long?? Seems a bit.. much.

    Thanks! :)

    I've been thinking about trying MTM formal wear at the upcoming NMWA event at the end of the month. I'm curious how much customization you can potentially do - for example, can you adjust things like lapel width, slimness of pants, shoulder type, etc? I tried the ciro shawl model from NMWA and the shoulders didn't sit well on me and the lapels were slightly too wide for me, but I also have eidos suits from past seasons that fit great.

    Also, any thoughts on how quality would compare to something like Freemans Sporting Club MTM which is about the same price point?

    Thanks in advance all.

    This has been well documented here before but our MTM process is like this:

    You pick your model, fabric, trim and we can alter the point to point, back length, waist, and sleeve length on the jacket. For the trouser we can alter the waist and bottom opening.

    We offer the Tipo in a shawl option if you didn't like the shoulder and lapel width of the NMWA model then we have one other one you can try (slightly more padded in the shoulder and a narrower lapel).

    I'm not familiar with FSC tailoring quality but all our tailoring is fully canvassed.

    In terms of sheer quality of tailoring, take Eidos over FSC. I've tried on those exact brands back to back a couple of times and Eidos is the clear winner, quality-wise. You may like FSC's fit and styling better (I don't) but for tailoring quality Eidos carries the day.

    Fit first, always. If you're spending $2k on tux should also check out RLBL and Paul Stuart and Paul Stuart PC. They have completely different aesthetics, but that's the whole point, just try, you wouldn't know otherwise.

    So on made to measure, can the pants have, say, the seat/thigh of a size 36 and 32" waist?

    ^sweet! Did you get confirmation that a long would be too long?

    Would love to see how the fit is regardless, when you get it in!

    It did seem like the R would work for me just fine. Whether the 52L would be too long or not, who knows.

    I'll post a pic when I get it!

    yep - we'd just fit off a 52 but take the waist in.
