    I've done 2 MTM rounds with Eidos, both at trunk shows (last November and this April) in NYC via NMWA. First round was just a jacket, this last round, they seem to have increased the measurement/adjustment points from the earlier round, which is clearly a good thing. I wore an OTR Lorenzo cut suit to the measurement, so I think that made it even easier for Quentin to talk to me about adjustments and take measurements. Shoulder width, chest and coat waist width, pant rise, pant waist size, thigh size and opening, if I recall, were all things that were tweaked or tweakable. Both Fall and Spring books were available with some fabrics being unavailable b/c OTR production had used all of them. Some uncertainty at the time about specific fabric availability, but the clarifying follow up was very prompt and the order finanlized a day or to later. Very positive experience, albeit the production time was a little longer than expected, but well worth the wait. I'd say don't order under a tight time frame (wedding,etc.). In fact, as I type that I imagine i'll do a MTM tux from them soon....

    Spring/Summer 2014. I bought it from Bloomies NYC. You might want to call around to see if any of the stores still have it. I saw SCs from F/W 2014 at Bloomies NYC last week.

    @hookem12387 Coachman Clothiers in Knoxville, TN (where I am) will start carrying Eidos & Kimber this fall and will have the loafers, among other pieces.

    Thanks for sharing your MTM experience. I really liked the Silk Shantung black tux that NMWA had. Might have to add that to the MTM list.

    Scored this beauty off of ebay (for an absolute steal...) and just received it today. It's the silk/wool tipo from SS14. Still has all the tags and stitching on the shoulders/sleeves attached. Just needs a trip to the tailor and a good pressing!

    Excuse the poor picture. It's the same fabric as the jacket Antonio is wearing in the pic below. Also, Antonio, I am totally going to jack your style and wear it with my blue Lupo. I definitely can't pull off a hat like that, though...

    Are Eidos MTM suit fabrics the usual mills, or are they specific Eidos-only house books.

    @ComfortablyDumb

    One of my favorite patterns. Nice pick up!

    Looks like a Tipo with that lining. Can you confirm?

    @venividivicibj

    Both.
