Is the top left shoe in this pic the navy porter?

It looks much better there than in the DC shoe thread.

I see there's a new(?) option for unstructured jackets. Anyone tried that yet? Pics?

How are these polos for keeping their shape?   


The polos keep their shape well. I have 3 of them, 2 short sleeves and 1 long.

 

Do wash in cold water and hang dry/lay dry to maintain the shape.

 

There are a few fabric which is thin, my purple one is thin, so that might be a factor when you choose your colors.

I would be down for a dark brown balmoral/blucher as well.

I was at the trunk show and had a chance to try on the polos. Normally I would purchase a large but I sized up to XL for Kent's polos. The Large was tight around the armhole and body. Not crazy tight but enough that moving up to the XL was an easy decision as any shrinkage in the Large would equal a fail for me. I actually purchased the navy long sleeve polo from Kent at the trunk show and just received 3 short sleeve polos and 1 more long sleeve polo today which I order from the site Friday afternoon. Pretty quick turnaround.
 

Also purchased a suit and a pair of the Hand grade Sienna Monkstraps at the trunk show so I guess the folks at Barney's, Bergdorf's and Saks won't be seeing much of me any time soon.

I actually got the exact same fabric (7089) for my upcoming wedding suit. Only changes are peak lapel, standard width, extensive pick stitching, 3 piece, and dark brown horn buttons. We were leaning towards 7087 at first but seeing your outdoor shots now, I'm glad we went with 7089. 7087 would have been far too light in direct sunlight for outdoor wedding photos.

It should be shipping in the next week or so; I cannot wait.


I'm interested in checking out 7089 as it seems pretty popular but I can't find it on the site. Can someone hit me with a link or point me in the right direction.

It's not on Kent's website. I would describe it as a true navy.

So does that mean Kent no longer accepts order in 7089? Also, what's the characteristics of this fabric that distinguish itself from other solid navy fabrics that are on the website right now?

It just isnt a fabric which can be added to the cart and processed in the checkout. 

 

It is still a fabric which is available through request though.

I think the pics I posted a few days ago showcase the fabric pretty well. Looks like a standard navy indoors, but the color pops and it looks brighter under direct sunlight.

Does this mean of the available selection on the site or are there options not displayed like the older striped shirts?

 

For my first shirt what's the most important measurement to focus on, neck or chest?

The only fabrics currently available are the RTW shirts on the website. We have access to several hundred fabrics but I need to photograph and organize them. They will be available in a few months.

Maybe in the distant future. The handgrade brogue fills that niche pretty well already, though it's a balmoral.

Hey kent any time frame for when you'll make a 48 sized jacket? Need MTM, my 12 drop sucks ass.
