Yes, it's a four season fabric, 270 g, but all our four season fabrics are on the lighter side, say compared to what you would get at a British tailor.
Trouser measurement table. Just measure and compare against a pair you own.   I've tweaked the measurements on these over thousands of made-to-measure customers. They are mid-rise. Only 5% of MTM customers ask for higher rise, 1% ask for lower, most keep it as is. With the slimness of the leg (measured at the thigh), 5% ask for looser thigh, 3% ask for narrower thigh. The seat measurement (across the widest part of the hips) sees more variation, with 15% asking for...
What does it say on the Royal Mail website? They may have more info.   You could also call USPS and they may be able to give you more information. Rarely, though. They pretty much have the same info as the public website, but once I had a shipment that had a vague description like yours and they said when I called that they were able to see it was in customs.   Also, Registered Mail may have small delays and be tracked differently, as it has to be signed by an employee...
  4 new pocket squares 10 pocket squares available in 17" The Great Wave available in wool/silk
I don't believe in hand-sewn for the sake of it being hand-sewn. Hand-sewn is better looking as it hides the thread. Of course not all hand-sewn is the same: #3 is wavy and not as smooth and straight as #2.
Gus, I've been planning a similar photo comparison. You read my mind! I think hand-sewn edges are absolutely a big deal. The stitching is visible when you wear it. It's a bigger deal than say, hand-rolled ties, as those edges are on the underside of the tie and not visible when worn.   You mean 1 & 4 are clearly machine stitched? These are made by a machine that does both the rolling and the stitching, but the machine is only capable of making a stitch that leaves the...
Rickshaw Cart pocket square $45  You have to email them for pricing. You can also look at the Harrisons website. I think neither one is absolutely complete. It's humble in the sense that it doesn't have wood paneling and mid-century teak furniture, though I'm working on the latter. I'm happy to meet all customers.
White linen with purple edge pocket square  The plans for a spring trunk show have fallen through, mostly because the euro is weak and I'd rather spend my money drinking sherry in Spain than lambic beer in America. Maybe there'll be a San Francisco trunk show in the fall. We'll send you a free pair. Just email sales@kentwang.com.

 Dark green pindot six-fold tie $85   All the Canadian customers that we've heard back from have told us they have not had to pay any duty. USPS (which delivers through Canada Post) is much less aggressive than UPS/FedEx about collecting duty. Even if you factor in shipping costs and the current exchange rate, I'm sure our suits are much better than anything comparably priced in Canada. They're currently stuck in customs. Hopefully should be released soon. Unfortunately,...
