Anyone have any lining and button suggestions for a navy suit? 

post #1457 of 4438
I do navy lining with Navy. I think it looks best that way. Do horn black or horn dark brown buttons.

It's personal preference. I went dark brown horn with brown lining.

If anyone is interested in how the measurement consultation works, these were my recommendations, with accompanying explanations:

 

  • Your shoulders are square (as opposed to sloping) so we'll raise the angle of the shoulders +2 cm
  • You could also consider switching to the soft shoulder padding so they don't look as prominent
  • The shoulders also look a hair too wide, so -0.5 cm
  • Back chest (across the armpits) is loose, so -1.5 cm
  • Waist looks ok in the back. Does it feel loose?
  • Assuming the side photos are the natural way you hang your arms, then we'll adjust the sleeve pitch backward 1 cm
  • Sleeve length -2 cm
  • Button stance -1.5 cm lower, should be at the narrowest part of your waist

I'm thinking about getting a couple of rugby shirts. I'm a 38R. Is the recommendation still to go with an L?

I just received one of his belts in medium brown. I'd say that medium is probably a better match to the AE walnut color. BTW, it's a very nice belt. Good quality leather.

If they are the same pattern as the polos you probably want medium.

Any Styleforum discounts I can apply towards the Bauhaus watch?

Received the grenadine purple tie, couple pocket squares, and a rugby over the weekend. Had to return the rugby (fit wasn't right for me) but LOVE the tie and pocket squares.

Also, FWIW, the customer service has been great: fast shipping, immediate repsonses to my questions, etc.... Will be ordering again soon.

Just saw Kent's watch featured on the watch blog Hodinkee. It's a fairly complimentary profile and a rare one for Hodinkee (to my knowledge, this is the first watch they've talked about that is under $1,000 . . . at least in the year or so I've been reading).

Congrats, Kent!

What kind of styles of waistcoats are available Kent? Would it be possible have one made in a double-breast configuration? Or perhaps just lower buttoning point to reveal more of the chest and tie?

Canadian customers: I have a suit with a 36 jacket and 32 trousers en route. 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.

We don't do discounts or sales as I think it's better to have one low price at all times, without silly games.

The suit options form lists three options: 5 button; 6 button; Notch lapel, 4 button. So no double-breasted. The 5 button is lower than the 6 button.

I was really impressed with the consult above.  As my posts indicate, I was somewhat unsure of the process going in.  After I received the jacket and consulted with Kent, I was immediately impressed with his service.  I plan to pick up a few additional items from Kent in the future.  I'll report back after receiving the RTW trousers in a week or so.

Thanks for the reply, Kent. As for your jacket. Is it possible to request more open quarters than the default width?

Similar to the degree of this: http://www.styleforum.net/t/56404/lightbox/post/5913334/id/568984

Just ordered my second KW MTM suit.  This one I will be wearing in my wedding!  I just got engaged last Friday and my first plan of action was to order a KW suit.  Next plan of action is a Hober wedding tie.

 

I will, of course, post pictures when the final suit arrives.
