I think this was called the Marcus shirt? I don’t wear it very often and I’m not sure why. Not sure if it fits in with my more casual workwear pieces.
Great shirt though, someoabout the design makes me look like I’m in better shape than I am.

That’s the original work shirt and it has the marcus collar. Lots of push back from every one of the retailers that customers didn’t “understand” the collar. We ended up changing it to something smaller and less spread.

please tell me you can resurrect it for an 18e denim work shirt

(pretty sure me/some of us have already made that request)

if you want to get rid of it (and depending on size) i probably would buy it from you.

While I love how it looks in the photo above, it was largely unsuccessful commercially for the aforementioned reasons. Further, I'm not really interested in rehashing Eidos ideas for 18 East.

Haha, too nice to let go and I’m a small so probably wouldn’t work for you anyway. I know you love the Marcus collar, have you tried Luxire or one of those types of services? I tried to have a former affiliate copy an old Eidos bomber and wasn’t really happy with the result (probably my fault for kissing some of the details or messing up the measurements.)

completely understandable.

although to be fair, i considered them your signature ideas.

Generally no, as I feel like that would be stealing intellectual property.
That said, now that these designs are in the dustbin of history and not commercially available at all anymore aside from the random eBay deal, I’m considering it.
Right now I have more than enough shirts and am on an OCBD kick. But it’s in my head for the future.

I hear you on the stealing issue but I wanted that bomber so bad! I paid the price for my indiscretion in a custom jacket I don’t wear.
Shirts should be easy to copy though. May want a faux dickie shirt one of these days.

A bit of a market hole in regards to slim tailoring that isn't short in length.

Hopefully that gets filled at some point but I'll enjoy scouring the bay for stray jackets and suits until then.

Have you checked NMWA’s IG post about their new house brand of tailoring? Looks good.

Speaking of EBay hunting, how many times have you scrolled past this jacket?? It’s been for sale for years at this point.
