    You're a brave and generous man. I proxied in July and found it a lot more work than I had anticipated. Lots of digging, curating, and messaging back and forth. Unless the person for whom you are proxying puts total trust in your taste.

    Sell it on Ebay for some iGent cash to subsidize your next Eidos purchase

    Seriously though does anyone leave the pin in?

    I could see it working for outwear but it seems tacky on a suit I will wear to work.

    Listened to it last night. Anthony and Jeremy did a fantastic job putting that together.

    It was designed to not look like a logo - the thought was to make something remsembling a vintage turquiose rosette that you would wear in lieu of a flower if you liked that sort of thing. That said, the best part of it as a branding tool is that it can be removed without a seam ripper. I don't wear it anymore and actually thought about killing it all together but too many people tell me they really like it so I figured ai would leave it.

    What drives me crazy is Isaia's insistence on putting it on all our outerwear styles (despite me telling them that it should not be on anything other than tailoring). I wouldn't recommend wearing a carnation in the buttonhole of a field jacket, so why would you wear this?

    Sell it to someone who has less taste than you.

    This is interesting. When you say they insist on it, do you mean that they try to exert creative control, or is it more just a friendly suggestion by them?

    I think that you accomplished your original vision. I really like the Eidos pin in and of itself. I've actually never worn mine with an Eidos piece but I have worn it with other tailored jackets, just as an accent. The color is great, the pit itself is discreet, and the logo doubles as an homage to Greek mythology.

    Wait, you smell that?
    

    I like the pin in both the tailoring and outerwear. It's distinctive for Eidos, and I think a nice touch. My suggestion, for what's it's worth, is leave it in, and leave it up to the customer to collect them in a drawer or leave it in and wear it. Sometimes it's a good conversation starter - people have asked what the pin is about, and I don't mind telling them.

    It's less of a concious "we disagree with you" thing and more of a "we have more important things to worry about than make sure this gets changed" attitude. Unfortunately, this attitude is more common in Naples than I'd like.

    Completely agree. Sounds strange but the distinctive turquoise pin was a small but significant selling point for me if that makes any sense..

    I would leave it in. It helps the customer recognize an eidos garment on a mannequin and on the rack easily. That said, I would never wear it.

    Unless the company is going to pay you to advertise the brand, don't wear the pin.

    Thanks for the replies all, I think I'm going to leave it in.

    FWIW I think the pin looks great on Eidos stuff in the store, so please leave it in!

    Have you never worn a Ralph Lauren shirt?

    There is no reason to have such strong negative feelings towards something that is completely optional. 99.9% of people you encounter will have no idea what Eidos is anyway.

    Also definitely remove the Jaguar from your car's hood if you drive one—that is, unless you're being paid to.
