    The ak rikks website doesn't seem to have a way to buy online. Do you have a sales associate with whom you work?

    The S/S 2016 stuff looks awesome! I really want to try out some of Eidos' suiting in the future...

    ...If only I can nail down my size. I'm a 36S in US sizing, which correlates to a 46 in Eidos' sizing if I recall. (Please correct me if I'm wrong!) I went to a local retailer that carries Eidos (Burrows) and they had a a 38 US/48 EU sport jacket that I tried on, but was a bit big. Based on that, I am likely a 46 EU.

    But now I'm learning that both Burrows and GotStyle in the Greater Toronto Area do not carry any suits or sport jackets in my size, and cannot even order them in for this upcoming season. I guess I was too late? Is there a reason I'm not aware as to why they cannot obtain anything in my size from their buyers? It's a little frustrating as I really want to own a jacket from Eidos.

    Eidos is a relatively small brand (in retail terms) and generally doesn't do mid-season re-stocks. What a store orders at the start of the season is all they will get and those orders are placed well in advance (hence why you probably couldn't order something for F/W). I am not sure if any retailer carries a 36/46, but with fall drops coming soon I would keep an eye out online.

    Also, many Eidos retailers offer their MTM service. Eidos has insanely good fabric books and the markup for MTM is very reasonable.

    Dammit, Moss.

    Because of this I decided to contact AK Rikks to see what they had left in my size.

    I'm currently in the process of getting another Eidos suit... I love you, but my wallet hates you.

    Hehe, what'd you end up with? If I had another several hundred dollars, there's quite a bit I'd be picking up from AK…


    Jordan sent me an Isaia hanger instead of the typical Eidos hanger. Haha, thanks @amckeague

    Picked up the Tenero suit in blue pinstripe linen. The same fabric as this DB suit from the lookbook

    I don't currently have a linen suit and I've been looking for a blue one and this fits the bill perfectly [​IMG]

    Was reading an interview with Nish De Gruiter, VP of Suitsupply, and he had some nice words about Antonio/Eidos:

    Do you have any must-see shows this week?
    I like to see Michael Bastian, Billy Reid, Ralph Lauren, Ovadia & Sons. I like to catch those shows because they all have their own signature on menswear and they make wearable fashion. I would wear everything from Eidos Napoli. Antonio just knows what he’s doing, it’s all his personality. I just love what he does.

    Thank you for your answer. I was not aware of this.

    I'll need to inquire with those two stores about MTM when I visit them again in the future.

    You can also contact the guys at No Man Walks Alone. They have the swatch books readily at hand (few retailers do) and they do an awesome job setting up MTOs via email.

    Quick question. I have an Eidos jacket on the way which is coming with basted sleeves and shoulders. I know for the sleeves you take it to the tailor and what not to alter it for the buttons and length and so forth. But, the jacket is also basted in the shoulders also. I researched and saw that this can simply be removed carefully by hand. Is this recommended or should the tailor remove those also? I'm just wondering as I have never received a jacket with basted sleeves and shoulders until this point.

    Just remove by hand if you're not comfortable have the tailor do it for you for free.

    Some quick and dirty post-workout-shower-terrible-hair iPhone pics of what I wore today (the hemp wool hopsack jacket).

    The fabric is very soft, and is a more "greige" (gray+beige) than a tan with a yellow tinge. It's also fairly heavy. Compared to the open-weave 9oz silk jackets from this collection, this 11oz is far heavier. It's something you'd pull out when the sun's going down on the beach and the wind starts to chill you. But for the 90° weather Cincinnati's been having, this is too heavy.

    At first I wasn't sure I was totally sold on either aspect—weight or color. But I've come around on both. The color is not inherently less good than a yellower tan—that's just what I was expecting and am still in the market for. And the weight makes it more versatile for the seasons, as well (I think I will be wearing this well into fall, and will be pulling it out earlier in spring next year).

    Plus it leaves room in my wardrobe for that lightweight tobacco or tan linen jacket :slayer: (or hell, if someone still had that tan with light blue windowpane silk jacket in stock in 52R…)

    How do you like the Tenero cut overall, @mossrockss? How are you liking the open quarters compared to the NMWA house cut?

    Did you stay same to size like your other jackets?

    TIA
