    On that point, I concur completely. He's absolutely right about that.

    I've definitely become far more picky about the stuff I find for myself these days. Honestly, I have enough stuff now that I'm starting to thin out my herd and donate some stuff I don't find myself wearing too often because it doesn't fit right.

    It was a hard lesson to learn, but I agree with him that leaner wardrobes are much more utilitarian especially for starting off.

    Aight, here's another one. We're all over the place (I am mostly to blame).
    We decided to start swimming at an indoor pool facilities. I probably would go to Target for some trunks but this one could look bawssss(?).

    Also, on Eidos, I'm tempted to buy one of the jackets, but the quarters on that Lorenzo cut never look right.

    Are you gonna kop one Noodles?

    I am about to noodle something. It could be a SS or it could be Eidos or even one of Kulata's suggestion. I really don't have any good suits besides the one.

    I thought you were saving your pennies for Formosa? If you've found a maker and cut that fits, why mess with anything else? Doesnt seem like the prices for the other options are that much less.

    Not sure the Lorenzo will work for you, try another Eldos if you want Eidos. Very open quarters and wide hips....hmmm not so sure.

    Very true. I will stick with Formosas but the last SS suit that I posted is tempting. Eidos is was more out of curiosity. Just wanted to know more facts on them. Also, Formosa suits have not been restocked yet so SS would make sense until NMWA restocks. This one below is only $500 so it won't hurt my pocket that much.

    Open quarters bother me too. Just wanted people to share their first-hand experience with Eidos since I have none.

    Hey Noodle-bros, can I get some help with shirt/tie pairings with this newly acquired suit:

    Disclaimer: I bought the suit online and just threw on a random shirt and tie to check the fit of the suit when I opened the package. I know it's way too busy to actually wear this combo.

    @The Noodles - :facepalm: - Don't get me wrong, the suit looks nice. It's just that it is not particularly versatile. Your other good suit (the Formosa) already has a windowpane pattern so alternating that and a POW seems a bit suboptimal. Solids. Solids. Solids. Then go play and have fun with patterns once you have staples you like.

    You look like you've been taking fashion advice from pre-SF RTC.

    +1 to Archibald

    You don't want to be "that guy" with the blue glen plaid suit and the grey glen plaid suit
