^ how did the trousers fit otherwise? did they feel overly slim? Not sure if this will help, but here are the measurements of the trousers I typically wear, and I'm hoping that a size 34 in the KW suit will be somewhat similar:

waist: 34"
thigh: 13.25"
leg opening: 8.25"

My measurements are very different from yours.  I wear 30" waist, but Kent's 30" pants were basically jeggins on me (except for the waist).  

 

I took the rise up 2cm, seat out 4cm, and thighs out 4cm.  Left the leg opening where it was.  I think that is somewhere in the 7.5-7.75" range.

 

I actually had to have the thighs and seat taken in a bit.  Leg opening was good for me.  For my next one I'll bring the thighs and seat in 2cm. Maybe let the leg opening out 1cm.

FWIW, I added 3cm to the rise, but decreased the back rise. My trousers fit very straightly, as the above photos hint.

Philly and yywwyy - thanks for the details. I'll wait and see what happens after I get the trial pair. I'm hoping that the less changes I have to make the better, but I'm guessing I'll probably have to do some tweaking on the trousers as well.

Sorry, one last suit question for those that ordered a suit.....when you placed your order, how did you specify which fabric swatches you wanted to be included with your order?

I sent an email to sales@kentwang.com but haven't heard back yet, and I didn't see a spot to include these on the website. I saw the benchgrade captoe balmorals were restocked, so I was about to place my order for the suit and shoes today before anything sells out or goes back out of stock.

Kent, what about the trench coat's 100% cotton fabric makes it water resistant? I'm trying to figure out if it will work for me in the perpetually drippy Pacific Northwest... Any other water-resistant outerwear coming down the pike?

I ordered my suit and then when Kent told me it was going to take a while for the standard one to be ready he asked which swatches he could send me with the suit.  I just emailed hm the fabric numbers of the swatches I wanted.

Silly question, but where is the pricing for the sport coat? I see suiting prices but nothing for an odd jacket or sportcoat?

 

I'm planning on getting a three piece suit and a sport coat made.

Yep I ended up just doing the same thing - placed my order and sent an email with the swatches I wanted. Kent said earlier that my size in the trial suit was actually in stock, so I just wanted to make sure I could confirm the swatches I wanted before my suit was shipped out to me. I will definitely update this thread with my experiences in the MTM process! Looking forward to it for sure.

When you click on the individual fabric you want, there is a drop-down box labeled "Pieces" that will let you select any combination of jacket, vest, or trousers, and you will see the individual pricing for each.

Yes, or you can look at the price list at the bottom of the suit page.

The fabric is woven very tightly. It won't be truly waterproof like a rubber raincoat will be, but it'll breathe and look better as it's still 100% cotton. It should be enough for anything other than a hurricane.

Kent,

Does your suitmaker have any cotton fabrics they can use to make some casual trousers based on my suit trouser measurements? I'd definitely get some if that was available.

Yes, I have cottons in an array of colors in the B price range.

 

Australian customers: I have a 36 jacket with 30 trousers headed to Australia. Now would be a good time to order as you'll be able to avoid the vicissitudes of international shipping and potential customs and tax.

Do you have any navy hopsack fabrics? It would be sweet to be able to put the ultimate navy blazer together with a nice hopsack material.

Just wanted to give my kudos to Kent for great customer service: ordered a couple of pocket squares Friday evening, and they arrived the following Monday with a hand-written note.

 

Thank you, sir.
