Works a bit better now. Thank you.
This is truly impressive.
Leave it unbuttoned
I think in “real life”, outside of these fora, people do what they want anyway - and the look damn good doing so. IF they care enough about putting energy and time into how they dress, and they love themselves wearing it, they will be perceived as looking awesome.
I will never have Antonio's “ease”, or Moss's southern style, and I like my Jackets either way too short or way too long, but kind of like this rambling, it doesn't matter.
If anything, this thread and Eidos' and Antonio's attitude like the one about the Dinnerjacket really helped me find my style. </ramblings>
Would Eidos Napoli ever sell a size 34 sports coat or suit? If not, any MTM options?
NMWA does MTM seasonally
I would love to see this.
Edit: What can be a bit disconcerting about this super conservative algorithmic dressing attitude is that it scares people away and hinders tailoring from evolving with the times. Allowing this kind of evolution is especially important when the social institutions that support certain garments, like a white dinner jacket, dissolves. If one can't wear tailored clothing in new, contemporary ways there is a risk of some styles dissapearing altogether, which would be a loss to everyone.
This is the exact same argument that I made.
Guess I shouldn't be surprised. Your clothes demonstrate a deep understanding of classic menswear but also a willingness to move forward and do something more distinct, personal and interesting. It's rare to find both things in one brand. Love the direction you've gone in the last few collections.
Which forum? Sounds like my type of people.

It took me about a hundred pages of new messages to this thread to understand this. I was - as a newbie to tailer clothing - in the same boat as those dogmatic people for a long time. I suspect that these forums are made up from people like me and people who will never change. In the meantime in the real world, Eidos is clearly still selling clothes, and so are other companies.
It's very easy for beginners to fall into these behaviors because so much information is derived from communities which condemn all deviations from some misguided view of what is correct. For a while I regarded my tailored clothing as something which was completely separate from the rest of my wardrobe, subject to strict rules which had to be followed. Getting dressed became way more enjoyable when I started to simply ignore these ideas, and started viewing clothes more as a form of self expression and creative outlet.
So, AAAS or FNB?
