    Apparently GotStyle in Toronto now carries some of the Eidos collection. I am going to check it out this weekend.

    Michelangelo is the factory where the Eidos tailored clothing is produced. The factory no longer produces garments under the Michelangelo label but continues to make private label goods for many other brands at all different levels of make. All the non washed garments in Eidos collection are made with a full canvas construction.

    I asked the Isaia guy at Barney's about Eidos and he was shocked. He asked me how I knew the name.

    It doesn't surprise me that all the Isaia retail associates don't know about it. We're keeping it entirely separate as its a different idea. There is no mention of Isaia anywhere on our garments. We don't want it to feel like a diffusion line because it isn't. I genuinely believe that our silhouettes stand up (and in many cases surpass) to the best things available in the market, at any price point.

    Quite frankly, I am shocked at how this thread is not exploded out into a six figure view count already. Antonio, maybe have someone post up some new pics?

    yea, definitely need more pictures, I tried it on in Bloomingdales today, fit is very good if you like the Napoli flavor (I am more biased towards English). I like one of the navy spots coat and a dark red DB (Though they didn't have the DB in my sizes, so couldn't see how it would have worked).

    The problem I can see is the fabric selection is not too inspiring (lots of pinstripe, one/two solids, few bold check, no houndtooth etc.), it's not bad at all, especially if you just start out buying tailored clothing, it's actually pretty good. It's just a bit on the boring side if you have built up your wardrobe already.

    I think it's more of a Bloomingdales's fault, the ones shows up on Tumblr looks a lot more interesting. I bet the selection would look a lot better if it was launched in Barneys New York/Bergdorf Goodman.

    Just bought a blue Eidos suit from Bloomingdales yesterday priced at $1495, marked down 40% for the weekend sale. Beautiful suit, impeccable stitching. Left it for minor length alternations will post some pictures when I get it back.

    For their first season, Bloomingdales chose a relatively safe buy because the product was untested. Thankfully it has been working on their floor. Next season, you will find some really fantastic swatches available there and at the other 20 stores that have chosen to pick us up.

    The Eidos stuff is looking awesome. I just got back from a couple weeks in Italy and it was quite a revelation in style for me. Nick, your stuff is knocking it out of the park and I can't wait to see it in the flesh....errr...fabric...

    Any chance Bloomingdales in Chicago is going to have Eidos?

    Nothing in Paris as of yet. My good friends at The Armoury will be carrying our "Lupo" one piece collar woven polo in HK and Tribeca this spring and may expand their selection in upcoming seasons.

    Bought a staple Navy suit and a MTM sport coat at the Eidos event at Boyds in Philly. The fit is terrific on both and Antonio was extremely helpful. The sport coat just arrived this week, and I'm thrilled with it. Cant wait to see the dress shirts and other pieces for the upcoming season.

    Not sure if this pic does it justice, but here's the sport coat...
