Kent Wang Plaintoe Balmoral shoes in Black with Hanger Project laces after Saphir:
SOLD!!! Up for sale is a pair of Kent Wang Plaintoe Balmoral shoes in Black leather, size 43/9D US. I purchased the shoes just about a year ago and wore them 12 times. I recently did a complete Saphir treatment, including Renomat, 3 layers of cream polish, 1 layer of wax polish and 4 additional layers of wax polish on the toe for a mirror-like finish. Kent Wang's description: "Plaintoe balmoral design, the only black shoe you'll ever need. Even more formal than a...
Thanks for the compliments. I don't know if you would consider them special 8000 lasted, hollow I'm a bit of a Tom Ford guy as well:

I agree with you completely. I've noticed with my MTM experiences that there is a disconnect between my expectations and what the tailor has in mind based on what he hears. My issues with my own MTM has been with fit and lack of certain options such as lapel width or style. I wasn't "blown away" by my commissions and find myself reaching for my heavily tailored OTR garments more so than my MTM garments.With bespoke, the issue would be trying to make a tailor do...
Shawl is an option, I just find that peak lapels look better on my wider shoulders. The two pictures above are the same Tom Ford tuxedo, the color is very washed out (Blackberry camera). That TF tuxedo is a traditional black with satin facings. The only thing that's not completely traditional about it is that it's a 2 button, versus 1 button. Who do you recommend for bespoke? I've included a picture of the Casino Royale tuxedo that I had in mind in my original post. ...
The Tom Ford tuxedo comes out to about $2300 after taxes and alterations. I've tried MTM in the past, the measurements are directly from my clothing. I have a local tailor and another tailor at my local Neiman Marcus (the TF tuxedo is from NM). I find that I have better results with OTR after my local tailor's adjustments than with my past MTM experiences. I still had to get some alterations done on my MTM pieces by my local tailor. Another option would be Napoli Su...
Hello, I'm looking for my first tuxedo to wear to social functions and perhaps to future weddings. My budget is $3.5k. I'm considering Kent Wang's MTM option to try a peak lapel, one button, roped shoulder tuxedo (similar to the one that Daniel Craig wore in Casino Royale). I am in the medical field, so my clothing can have a little style but should border more on the side of classic. Also, I came across this Tom Ford tuxedo that has a peak lapel, but is two button....
