    Thanks for the heads up, just grabbed the indigo popover. I've had my eye out for this for quite a while!

    Nice, CD. Beat me to it. Fellow party of 10 Ajrak medallion cardigan owner here. I took delivery of mine too and thought I'd share some quick pics. @NickPollica - This thing is so great on so many levels. I'm glad you fought the good fight with your supplier/factory and got these made! Awesome work. PS - I'm ready to cook some eggs :D

    Pics (pardon the mess in the background!):

    It is one size, tag actually says "M", so close to a medium is a fair gauge I'd say. I own the FW15 belted wool cardigan in Medium and sizing is close, the Ajrak having a slightly more loose fit all around.

    I'm 5'8", about 160-165 nowadays so you can gauge the fit. I remember you were close to my size maybe a bit smaller so it would fit you great too IMO. I was on the list months ago for this and when I officially purchase a few weeks back I was number 5 of 10 to order. I would call Robert Elder at Martin Patrik 3 to ask if there are any left. He was really great to work with.

    Yes. You can see it in CD's pic on the left. It's same material as the rest of the cardigan so it blends right in.

    Haha yeah - no surprises here. As soon as I saw it in the SS16 presentation I knew I had to have it... It's funny, I was first attracted to Eidos because of the quality:price ratio of their tailored offerings, and as a result I slowly replaced most of my tailored wardrobe with Eidos... I've recently discovered Eidos has become an alarming proportion of my casual wardrobe as well.

    I'm an XL/54R/16.5 in Eidos tops and this fits fairly slim, but not overly so, and I imagine it'll loosen up a bit more with wear. I say the fit is probably perfect and loose as intended if you're an M or L, and maybe a bit too relaxed if you're an S or XS (depending on your preferences, of course).

    Hah! I got mine shipped to Buffalo and picked it up today while visiting a friend (not a bad way to avoid excessive shipping charges and duties, too).
    Good to know that between you and me, at least 20% of known Ajrak's in the world will be in Toronto!

    I'm 5'11 and it hits just above mid-thigh for me, pretty ideal length IMO.

    $350 and no idea if there are any left. Give Martin Patrick 3 a call!

    Reposting original description below. Last I checked there were 2 left (that was last week):

    After months of battling with our suppliers, I'm happy to announce our Ajrak medallion cardigan has finally arrived. The knit jacquard pattern is based on tradtional Rajasthani indigo textiles that are block printed by hand in the Ajrak style. We spun together four different colors of cotton yarn (navy with black and cream with ecru) to give the pattern a suble depth of texture. You really need to see it up close to appreciate how beautiful it is. The garment is knit full but light and layers easily over a tee shirt or pajamas around the house.

    Only 10 produced. Exclusively available at Martin Patrick 3.

    @NickPollica Any insight in to whether the Cotton Shantung will fade if hand washed? Or on the other extreme, how it will take to over dyeing?

    Just got my first Eidos piece. Unstructured 3 season Tenero. Was surprised to fit a 52.

    Also tried on the Tipo which were better in my usual 40.

    Still need to get buttons sewn on and will probably bring it in a touch at the waist.
