post #2206 of 4435

Emailed kent a couple times, usually he responds super fast so i just assume he's busy or on vacation or something. Definitely not complaining. he has some of the best customer service in the business. 

 

wanted to know if the green polo was being restocked in L so I could buy the newly restocked grey and green short sleeved polos together. In waiting, the grey got backordered after being in stock for like 2 days. Sunuvabitch, my own fault for not acting quicker I guess. 

 

Anyone have any IRL photos of the green polo. Im hoping for a kelly green more than a lime green and stock photos are hard to tell sometimes.

Did anyone else get one of the new batch of navy polos? The collar length in the front seems to be .25" or so longer than the previous polo shirts I've ordered. I'm trying to figure out if it's a slight change in the design or specific to this particular shirt. It's probably wearable, but definitely noticeable looking at two of them side by side and I prefer the shorter length. I haven't contacted Kent yet, so if any of you have any insight it would be appreciated.

Maybe it shrinks after a wash.

Suit deets - fabric TR7089, wide lapels, 3-roll-2, soft shoulders, minimal pick stitching, black horn buttons, ticket pocket, button fly, 2" cuffs. I think the rest of the details are standard. I really love this fabric, it looks like a pretty standard navy indoors, but when the sun hits it outside, it really pops.


Beatlegeuse, is that tie 3 or 3.5 inches? I selected wide lapels on my Kent Wang suit (which should be arriving this week), and I'm beginning to wonder if my 3.5 inch ties will be a bit too thin for the 4.5 inch lapels. I have a few 3 5/8 ties on the way from Sam Hober, but I'm wondering if even those will be too thin for the wide lapels. The classical wisdom dictates roughly matching tie width and lapel width, but adhering to this strictly in this case would be absurd, as I'm not about to wear 4.5 inch ties, lol. I think 3.75 is as high as I'd go and I think would still be in proportion with the wider lapels, but even 3.75 inch ties are hard to find theses days. Any thoughts?

By the way, your suit looks great, Beatlegeuse!

I've actually already given a wash a short dry with the same noticeable difference. Haven't decided whether I'm bothered by it or not.

I think you're taking the rule too literally. I personally wear 3" ties with standard width 3.5" lapels. I don't think 3.75" or any larger looks good on any one, regardless of lapel width. Really, I think the only acceptable tie widths are 3 to 3.5". Anything else looks dated.

That shouldn't be the case. Email sales@kentwang.com if you'd like a replacement.

It's made from Horween cordovan, which only comes in one thickness. But because it's only a single piece of leather it's thin compared to most other bands which are usually composed of two pieces of leather.

Thanks for the compliment! The tie is 3.5 inches, and the suit has 4.5 inch wide lapels and I think it looks fine. Actually I haven't measured the lapels on my suit, so I'm not sure if they're exaxtly 4.5 inches, they might be just a tad smaller. I'm not too much of a stickler for matching tie width and lapel width, as long as I'm not wearing a super skinny tie with wide lapels or vice versa.

You guys are right: I'm probably overthinking the whole tie/lapel width thing. I've been overthinking a lot of things recently. shog[1].gif

too much time spent on SF will do that, along with making you second guess every decision you've ever made about clothings. Moderation and holding grains of salt are key.

In general, my 2 cents is that as long as the general proportions are similar then no one is going to really have a beef. If you wear a 5" 1970s lapels and a 2" skinny piano key necktie, it will look weird. Same goes if you have a Topman lapel with a massive wide tie. But keep it in the same family and you're golden.

I wear 3 in ties with 3.5 in lapel suits all the time. I even went with a 2.75 in tie once but I wouldn't go any lower than that for a 3.5 lapel

Just got my Kent Wang trial suit for MTM.  I haven't scrutinized it yet, but I was shocked to see I might not need too many alterations beyond length and a few nips and tucks.  Will post pictures tomorrow to get thoughts from others on what needs to be done.

I had a similar experience with the trial suit; I was pleasantly surprised to find that the jacket needed very few alterations. Looking forward to seeing pictures of yours. Have you decided on a fabric and details for your suit?

I just received confirmation that my MTM suit has shipped from Kent's warehouse. smile.gif Should arrive Wednesday or Thursday.

I know it will be solid navy, but have not received the swatches yet to pick a specific fabric.
