Kent - Great looking shoes, any close ups?

post #2042 of 4253

the dub monks didn't look that good on the site pics to me but that pic sold me. 

 

Hopefully restock is coming soon

Thanks.

I'm no tailor, but I'd probably have just a tiny bit narrower shoulders, lower buttoning point and the waist let out a bit (might be fixed by lowering the buttoning point - now it's almost at your diaphragm). Slightly shorter sleeves. Trousers need to be wider at the hip judging by how much the pockets bow out.

Thanks for the suggestions. I think the pictures being taken at a slight downward angle distorts the view a bit. The button stance should be lowered but its probably not as high as it seems in the picture. So far after one email with Kent, the following are possible alterations. Numbers in cm.

Jacket
-3 sleeve
+4 waist
-1.5 button stance
-1.5 jacket length
-2 angle of right shoulder
Adjust sleeve angle backward
-1 armhole

Trousers
+2.5 waist
+2.5 seat
+2 rise
+1 thigh

WOAH! Some of these look very exciting.

I have a year-round wool navy blazer and a linen navy blazer. If I were to go the medium or glen plaid, what would be your recommendation there? I have a general idea my next suit should be a medium-to-light gray of some kind, preferably 3/4 season weight if possible.

Charcol RTW suit, navy pindot and navy grenadine ordered.

 

Looking to send the RTW back and get a navy MTM at this stage. I'll post photos when the RTW and then MTM arrive.

I don't think you'll be happy with how the -2 angle of right shoulder ends up... but that's up to you of course.

Can you expand on that? I'm not entirely clear on what it will do. I'm assuming it somehow evens out the shoulders by 'lifting' the right shoulder since that side slopes more.

I believe it will heavily pad the one shoulder in attempt to even them out. However, unless done very well and measured to the right amount, it likely will just look weirder than if you left it the same or less padded. PM me more about it if you'd like.

We don't add padding to even out the shoulders, which rarely turns out well. We change the angle of the shoulder to match the slope of your shoulders. It's not going to make you look even but it will prevent the pulling caused by the jacket not laying on your true shoulder line.

Then this must be different than what I'm referring to, and if the actual measurement is called "angle of shoulder," then I'm guessing you are correct. You should listen to Kent as it is his product. However, I do believe there is an option to change shoulder padding height, which I wouldn't recommend having done. Regardless, this does not appear to be in your plans and if it were, it's something for Kent to address. Sorry for jumping in. Carry on!

Kent Wang has some great clothes but I am really looking for someone who can rap about Belgian Trappist monks. The search continues...

Thanks for the clarification from both of you. I'm glad to hear that additional padding is not the method used.

about to order the rtw charcoal suit and am thinking about ordering a tie also as this will be my wedding suit, either the glen plaid or the houndstooth. which tie width do you guys suggest for the rtw suit? or are they close enough so it's more up to personal preference? really want the houndstooth but it's only available in slim.

related: kent, any plans to restock the standard width houndstooth?
