    Not gonna lie, I kinda wish I saw that before I placed my order. It's kinda great, in a totally obnoxious way.

    Regarding Primo - is the consensus to size up like I do with Tenero? I wear a 52r in most Eidos cuts, but the Tenero I wear a 54r..

    Thanks and sorry for umpteenth fit question..

    The ciro cut was really cool, too bad that guy doesn't have it in a long.

    Can anyone tell if jackets with patch pockets can be shortened? Need to cut it 0.6 inches, which would leave 1.9 inches above the patch pockets. I always avoid shortening this kind of jackets, just to maintain the balance of the jacket.

    Thanks, I'm one of your tumblr followers. Your Eidos pieces are great, with perfect fit always. Guess I had that collection...

    The primo model is the slimmest we've ever made. It was developed basically as a sample models so that we could do photoshoots and have to alter the samples. 48 fits like most brands' 46 but longer.

    I got the Arjak from a fellow SF member. Sadly, I don't think it works for me :/. So beautiful, though!

    antonio,

    is the lack of primo's current availability due to the retailers/buyers general fear of their customer not understanding or appreciating the benefits of the design (a la tipo) or a deliberate decision to streamline the tailored end of your design vision ?

    (personally, always been a fan of grinze/spalla camicia and thankfully now that the hyped conversation about it is dying down, i hope it doesn't disappear, least of all from eidos)

    Does anyone have experience letting out the seat in Eidos suit pants? How much allowance is there?

    I'm not sure why you would bother shortening a jacket for such a small amount when the outcome is such a crap shoot. I've never seen a jacket shortened after it was made look good. With that said, if its a patch pocket jacket, just have the pockets taken off and reset

    Couple things. First, the primo was never really meant to be sold RTW as it only really fits tall, skinny guys. Second grinze is something that is nearly impossible to sell in RTW, particularly at a lower pricepoint.

    We are now focusing on the following:

    1. The things we like

    2. The things we sell well

    I personally think that the tenero is the best, most versatile and wearable expression of our canvassed tailoring. For myself, I only really wear the Augusto now as I tend to dress more casually and think its the easiest thing to throw on with a tee shirt and chinos. Greg sells the NMWA well and Marcus sells the Ciro and Tenero. Bloomingdales sells the Balthazar.

    0.6 inch, or 1.5cm, is not "a small amount"... For example, the difference between a 75cm long jacket and 76.5cm can be quite obvious. Actually I think this is about the limit of how much you can shorten a jacket without throwing the balance off. I have seen this kind of alteration done with good result, if you have a good tailor
