    I'm with ya. Once I get an Eidos anyway. I like theirs better than isaias and I don't see anything wrong with wearing one. I'm sure there are those that disagree.

    In other non body type news....I was in Santa Monica this weekend and picked up some Save Khakis pants from Unionmade. They are some of the most comfortable casual pants I've ever worn. Not too pricey ($129 MSRP) and made in the US of A. Just FYI...

    The shorts are solid as well. Great color options. Only small detail that bothers me is the massive belt loops (not width, but they stick too far out if that makes sense).

    I can see that. I'll be wearing everything untucked though. I got a nice oxford stripe shirt too....I snap a shot with them on later.

    Last I checked, he's only allowed to wear suits but sometimes shows up to the office with only pants, shirt and tie and gets stuck in an important business lunch without a jacket. I think a navy blazer hanging in his office would be a good idea.

    Or, you know, just wearing a suit every day...

    ^ No disagreement from me on that one. But if he's not going to wear a suit everyday, a blazer in his office is definitely a lesser evil than having to walk around jacketless.

    A week ago, people gave me shit for making precisely this distinction in the Eidos thread. Glad to hear I'm not alone.

    I don't like the quarters on some of those Eidos. Too extreme. Looks like a morning coat.

    I like the idea of rounded quarters, but this is waaaaayyy too extreme

    @Claghorn are you B&T's this rounded?


    "Good" rounded

    I agree with you, @jrd617
    The first pics I saw of that new Eidos line looked promising, but in the end it looks a bit like a Liverano caricature, IMHO.
