    Thank you for the help! Chest measurement is likely too small. Also, I'm interested in suits and on the No Man Walks Alone website, the pants are 36.6'' in the waist. I'm a 33'' waist. Not meant to be.

    45" chest suits do not come with 33" waist trousers. Not sure how you've been buying suits RTW before, because that is not a drop that is within standard range.

    I do wear trousers with 34'' waists and I can fit into a 44''. Range of motion is limited though.

    Are you only buying suit separates? I have never seen a 11-12" drop from chest to waist

    There's a misunderstanding. I do not have a 44'' or 45'' chest. Half measurement of a jacket underneath the armpit should be 22'' (actual chest is a 39'' but because I have such large lats, I need the extra room). If the actual measurement is smaller than 22'', I can't raise my arms very much (which is a problem when I'm driving my car). I can't do most 40R (though classic Italian styles do sometime work, such as Canali mainline 40R). The waist trousers length should 33.5'' or bigger (my actual waist is a 32.5''). Another problem is my 19'' shoulder, which generally fit into 42R suits.

    It also depends on how in shape I am. The more cardio I do, these measurements decrease.


    My father has Isaia suits and I find them beautiful. Being that Eidos is more affordable and appears to cater to a younger crowd (I'm 26), I'm very interested. One of these days, I'll make it to Bloomingdales in Century City to try on a jacket.

    I forgot to answer your question! I do sometimes buy suit separates. Most of the time, no.

    I've been considering this tie from Eidos as my first foray into this part of the collection. I'm posting a pic that Marc Etlin sent me for those of you who are interested. Might be a useful summer tie in brown. The overcheck is, apparently, pink. I hope it's a bit more vibrant (summery) IRL. 100% Cotton.

    I've been really happy with the construction, feel, and knots in my Eidos tie. One of my next two ties is the green grenadine grossa that Bloomingdales is selling.

    Beautiful tie! What's the width? Most Eidos ties (non-knit ties, anyways) are 3.25", correct?

    I love that tie. This is the first picture I ever saw of Eidos clothing, and it was the picture that made me really take a closer look at the brand (unfortunately, I saw the picture a season too late and everything in this picture was already sold out.). I believe this is the same tie as Hookem's just in a different color.

    Same tie, different color. I believe it's 3.25" I love this one, and honestly the green linen one I have may be better.

    Looks like a 1cm difference according to measurements on nmwa (cached).
