post #2071 of 4441

Just wore light blue with a green/blue striped knit to one on Saturday. I figured nobody is picking blue or green for their weddings so I might be safe. I got there and the colors were black and purple. Just like the last several weddings I'd been to. They are so original. 

I was also the only guest, besides my girlfriend, not wearing black with a white shirt and having clean shoes. We both thought it was a funeral when we walked in at first.

 

So that's why I suggest something other than monochromatic for a wedding you'd be a guest to, if this is the case. But I'm still new to the style thing here so take my word lightly.

I am thinking of getting a suit and like to hear everyone's opinion on fabrics. I was measured during Kent's visit in NYC but didn't have much chance to look at the fabric. Would fabrics by European mills like Loro Piana worth $100 additional price compared to basic wool? Only decent suit I own is the one by suitsupply and I think that one's VBC.

 

P.S. I am thinking of navy solid.

If you want a solid navy, go for one of the standard fabrics. I believe Kent has said that the standard fabrics are just as good as most of the Loro Piana and other premium fabrics. You should really only pay for the upgrade if you want a pattern (like a bold glen plaid or something) that is not available in the standard fabric.

Kent - it's hard to tell from the photos of the yet-to-be-uploaded swatch books on the website, but are there any pick-and-pick fabrics in the basic line?

Just pulled the trigger on a trunk show suit. Very excited.

Can't wait until you have a sample suit in 48. These look phenomenal

Thanks for the advice. I guess I'll save that $100 and spend it on some other vice...

I ordered a suit at the trunk show in basic navy. I think it's a good idea to hold off on the more expensive fabrics for any first suit until you decide you like the cut and get the measurements exactly right.

thanks for the input on a charcoal suit paired with one of the classic wedding ties that kent offers. ordered the charcoal rtw suit (with vest) last night as well as the glen plaid tie in standard width. excited to see how this looks. as stated, this will be the suit combo that i will be (hopefully) wearing for my wedding in novermber, paired with a white shirt and a pair of black AE park aves. pretty basic i think.

Definitely let us know how the three piece suit works out...I was thinking of getting a three piece as my next suit, but I didn't try the trial vest yet.

100 years, no no no on the Park Aves. Get the wang black bals. Will look much better, and much higher quality. Why settle for a triple when you can hit a home run?

Maybe he's like me and doesn't like the look of a plain toe...

I do, I just wish I could get them plain toe in Brown.

 

 

I was googling and couldn't pull it up, did Kent say he would make a suit if you provide the fabric?  I would love to get a summer suit made in Navy Fresco.

Yes, KW does this, but I think it's $750+whatever you paid for the fabric.  I believe you need nine yards for a suit.

9 yards is a bit much. You can do a jacket and trousers with about 3.
