Waist - 32"

 

I also have larger traps and muscular shoulders. 5'9", 160lbs.

 

Thank you in advance to anyone that weighs in.

Go for it.  You might want to try both, I am the same measurements, but am 6'0 and usually wear a M thought a L might give you a more relaxed look.

And what size is that you are wearing? Nice accesories (notice the plural) on your left.

Things I changed:

 

Brought in waist 1"

Sleeve length +1"

Elbow width +.25" (Sleeve was a little tight)

Shirt length +.5"

Collar band .25" higher

Collar points .5" longer

 

Please give me your honest opinions.  I think it's definitely wearable, but could fit better.  A friend of mine tailors for free, so I can have him bring my shirt without a problem.  I just want to dial this in because I know I want to get more KW shirts.

 

 

Al-Did you get that collar curl by increasing the collar point length? It might be a bit too much for me, but I like it. It could also be the low camera angle that gives the looking up someones nose perspective.  I would bring in the waist a bit more and think about bringing in the chest after a wash to reduce the folds.

Try sitting down first.

 

My next shirt will most likely be a spread collar, so perhaps I'll shorten .25".

 

Did this shirt pass the sitdown test?  It's much trimmer than my MTM. 

 

I think if I brought the chest, waist and hips in .5" it would be about there for what I prefer.  I don't like the extremely slim look, and that photo from your site is a little too tight for my taste.

Yeah, longer collar usually gives curl.  I have had MTM shirts done before and each tailor has always recommended a higher collar band and longer collar points because I'm tall and have a long neck.

Does anybody happen to know where KW's tie bars are made in?  Thanks.

Bangladesh. No, Wyoming. Or is it Peru? Perhaps the Amalfi Coast. No, no, it's Tibet. They are holy.

I think they were the actual reason for the final crusade.

Thank you, sir. Your post is exactly the information I was looking for.

Just placed my order for a Medium Navy Polo, White w/ Leaf Pocket Square & White Lapel Flower.

post #1917 of 4528

Sounds like a solid order.  I really liked the navy polo.  The fabric has been slightly different between the white, grey, and navy but I am liking them all the navy and white may be my favorites so far. Looking forward to getting some rugby shirts like in maroon.  Really like the looks of the white leaf PS, wear in good health.

Rugby in Navy and Polo in Lavender for my first order? or some other colors?

post #1919 of 4528

Are there any pictures of a 3-roll-2 with narrow lapels from Kent floating around? I'm a shorter guy and I'm considering a 3-2 or 3-2.5 as a way to kind of cheat and lower the button stance to make myself look taller. Plus I like that softer roll of the lapel. Not an option you see often on RTW suits so I've never tried one on.

For those that have the brown cap-toe, are they being used strictly as office shoes? I already own the pair and wear it in the office, trying to figure out if I can ever wear them casually with jeans or if they are too sleek.
