    It's interesting. I found eidos fit me perfectly otr (I'm 6', 170 and a consistent 50) and the 50 fit me just right. And for reference, the Ring 50 fit me perfectly (albeit a smidge smaller). My size must be in some sort of sweet spot.

    I took advantage of the spring sale and ordered a Blousant and Polo from Gentry earlier today. :D

    Their buy is so amazing. I hope they put the whole thing online - we did a ton of exclusive things for them like our spring peacoat in the cotton shantung garment dyed in a deep, inky navy, our picasso jacket in a heavy japanese indigo dyed canvas, and so so many more amazing things.

    Wow, that is an amazing collection of pieces.

    I fell in love with the Shantung Blousant as soon as I saw it in the SS15 Lookbook.

    Absolutely in love with the Lupo! I have a few concerns, however, that I'm hoping you fine folks can help with.

    1. Does this saturated pink work with dark skin?
    2. Do they shrink a lot? The fit is great but any tighter might be a problem. (Also, is this a cold wash/ hang dry kind of shirt?)
    3. Will they work with dark trousers or would that make me look cut in half?
    4. Do people wear them untucked. I see they have them like that on some of the online retailers product pages but I'm not sure it works.
    5. Wear can I find more! (Size small)

    1. Yes, absolutely the pink works with darker skin!
    2. In my experience they don't get much tighter with washing but they may get a bit shorter. Cold wash/hang dry is always a good idea.
    3. Definitely works with darker trousers
    4. I've never worn mine untucked. The curved hem makes them ideal for tucking, imo.
    5. Not sure, but if you find a place with more XLs let me know too!

    You should check out the tailoring selection on carsonstreetclothiers.com - they carry the nero model which is essentially a tipo short - The 52R Nero will fit like a 52S Tipo.


    Lawrencecovell.com and stanleykorshak.com have short sleeve camicia polos and Lawrence Covell has lupos.

    @NickPollica
    Thanks! I check them every hour:)

    I know you said the Aldo collar is named after your father. What is the Lupo named for?

    Thanks for your responses. If I see any in your size I'll be sure to give you a heads up!
