post #1846 of 4441

Kent,

 Just a quick question. Do you make odd jackets or blazers? For instance, how much would it cost to have an ordinary Navy blazer made?

post #1847 of 4441
^ when you're shopping for suits on the website, you have the option of choosing a fabric, and then when you're ready to add it to your cart you can pick a 2-piece suit, 3-piece suit, or any of the components (jacket, vest, or trousers) individually. Prices for each individual piece varies by fabric.

This is a selection of the spring fabrics currently available. The complete swatch books will be photographed in a week.

 

Really, really well done. Quick question - for lapel-proportion reference, what size are those example jackets?

Purely out of curiosity, Kent, did you have to have all of those suits made up on spec to get those photos? That is a sizable investment, if so. Impressive.

Thanks, appreciate the help.

Kent, I think we had nearly the same meal at Oxheart. Incredible.

Spring stuff looks great, too. Will be getting something.

I can wear spring suits year round, just add more layers if necessary. Obviously colors that are very vernal will be harder to wear in the winter.

Yes, have a look at the price chart at the bottom of the suit page. For the A range fabrics, it's $575 for a jacket. It's a little cheaper to order a two-piece suit than jacket and trousers separately.

The shirt fabrics shown in the lookbook are not ours. But I'm working on photographing our MTM fabrics, but it may be a few months. It's a complex project.

The Saphir Renovateur should be restocked in early March.

That place has great value.

Is there no 36S option for the charcoal trial suit?

post #1854 of 4441
I know that many of you out there purchased the KW chukka in the fall.

Impressions? How is the fit? Being a KW product, I assume they are holding up well?

Thanks,

AHS

I've worn my chukkas more than any other pair of shoes I own, for two years I believe. They're almost ready for a resole—I do lot of walking on city streets. The leather and construction are still holding up fine, no different from when they were only a week old.

I just added the lapel width to each of the photos so you can compare. I think both the narrow and wide options are quite viable, not too extreme.

We only carry the trial suit in regular lengths. For a MTM order, it's very easy to adjust the length.

As I live outside of the US (in Asia), if I bought the trial suit and I know it won't definitely fit me because I'm 36S (with many other brands), I'll have to get to a local tailor for some alterations instead of send it back to you for adjusting because FedEx would charge me tens of bucks. In this case, do you think I should try a MTM order instead of a trial suit?

I don't recommend getting a tailor to make a regular jacket "short." There is too much that is different. Even shortening the jacket length is risky, but I believe the buttoning points are also different. There really isn't a way to adjust that.

Sure, but if it was a little alteration (1 or 1.5") in the back length (or even in sleeve length), it seems to be OK. But in this Kent's offer, no "short" for trial suit,  so nothing I can do but a MTM or a 36R and then adjusted by a local tailor.

Wouldn't extensive alterations to the trial suit end up costing more than the extra shipping to go through the full MTM process?

Sleeve adjustment is fine. I don't think you want to take just the back up. You have to do it all the way around. It really doesn't matter the amount you are shortening it. It is not easy for a tailor to get a nice finish on the bottom of the jacket.

 

Forgive me for saying this, but Kent Wang OTR is not your only suit option. You should either use his MTM program or find a brand that has short sizes available.
