    Stefan88, I think that would have been much better with black shoes. Boring, I know.

    Oh ok, thanks. I saw those on Isaia coats I wore the other month, but I didn't notice the dimpling. I thought the completely unstructured shoulder doesn't have dimples. Is there a way to create one that doesn't have the dimples?

    You guys are giving me way too much to think about! I love that jacket too, although I don't know how to feel about a raw silk SC. I can't imagine it would be very breathable.

    Edit: Also, it seems that Eidos makes pretty short jackets. at 6-1 a 29 inch jacket would just look weird on me.

    +1. I always like warm, coppery browns better when I look at just the color; but it is always harder to pair than a cold brown.


    Sometimes, people use spalla camiccia a bit misleadingly; in fact, it only denotes the way the arm is attached to the body, simply speaking. Some people say spalla camiccia and mean spalla camiccia con arriccio, meaning an "inserted" shoulder with shirring.

    Well, just compare your dad's suit (and your own) to suits that David has made for himself - the difference is pretty damn remarkable (and not in your favor).

    That fit is so bad, it's almost hard to believe.

    Great look. Your face and body language says: "I'm on a mission. Someone will die before the night is over." And inside your briefcase is a .40 p229 with suppressor and subsonic rounds.

    I am 6'4" and have several Eidos 54Ls and they look proportionally correct. That being said they are the Lorenzo model, which I think is longer than some of the others. There has been a lot of discussion in the Eidos thread about different lengths, so seek exact details there, but my point is tall guys can wear Eidos OTR.
