The tux looks really good, what lapel width did you go with?

email the maker instead of the try-er on. kent can get you squared away with a few basic measurements.

I'm surprised we never heard anything from all the people at the trunk show that purchased suits.  How did the suits turn out?

I bought one and haven't worn it yet... Will try and make an effort to do so soon.

Mine is still being manufactured. I expect to have it before the end of the month.

I wasn't at the trunk show, but I have a KW suit being made right now that should be done in about a week. I'll post pictures.
post #2332 of 4576
Mine arrived but I haven't had a chance to take photos or even really try it on.

I have a suit coming within a few days so I'll be sure to get some pics up ASAP.

Taking the new KW suit out for a spin. Here are 2 robo poses and a closeup of the fabric.

That looks very nice.  Seems you have your fit dialed in with KW.

Great fit on that suit! Only nitpicks in my opinion are that the shoulders are rather strong and the jacket a tad short. Sleeves might be a tad short, too, but that's preference. Great looking suit overall though.

My maroon polo just arrived and instantly I know this is probably the best polo I have owned. I will definitely be returning for more purchases.

(Arms are a bit too snug and body is a bit long but that's due to my weird measurements)

I like showing a little more cuff, and if the jacket gets too long I feel like I'm swimming in it. Given that I'm thinner (`155lbs) I don't like any excess fabric, and if I look down and see a long jacket it just makes me feel skinnier. That's why I've also gravitated towards Suit Supply for their slightly trimmer/shorter fits. As for the shoulders, I hear ya. My square shoulders are just something I'm stuck with.

Looks great and I think to fit is on point as well.

For anyone who has one of the Kent Wang suits... How would you rank it compared to more traditional makers in terms of craftsmanship, fabric, etc? I'm most familiar with BB and PRL's stuff. Is it like an 1818/Blue Label, but full-canvas? Is it comparable to Golden Fleece? To Purple Label?
