Depending on your jacket size, the "wide" lapels really aren't all that extreme. Before I ordered my first KW suit, I was worried that the wide lapel option would be a bit too large, but now that I've seen them on a size 44 jacket, I wish they were even wider actually.
Its a 38. Should look OK but I'm nervous anyways.

Wide lapels should look fine on a 38. I have wide lapels on mine, which is a slightly modified 40. And I've seen pics posted here a while ago with wide lapels on a 36 and that looked good too.

Is there any interest in purchasing paper prints of some of the original pocket square designs? Some of the pocket squares are cropped versions of a larger design, so the paper version will be uncropped. Price will be reasonable, $50 for an unframed print, around 14". I'm not looking to make a lot of money off them. I spent much effort researching these and my editor has worked on improving the colors so that they're true to the vision of the original artist, so I just want to share the fruits of those efforts with others.

 

I had this Kabuki print framed and hung on my wall. The pocket square will be available in about two months. Shinagawa will be the next paper print I will do.

The Star Chart's probably my favourite one - it's really easy to work into outfits. Find myself reaching for it in the morning much more than most other squares (except white linen).

I really dig those white sneakers. Does anyone here got an on feet picture of them? With denim if that is possible. 

 

Thanks in advance

Will you be re-stocking the purple Gingham in size 15.75 anytime soon?

Got the chance to be featured at TSB and decided to give a Kent Wang suit shoutout. Got it as a 3 piece but it was too hot to wear for this feature.

 

more of the feature if you guys are interested.

I just got this beauty in the mail today from Kent Wang.  I'm looking forward to wearing it.  The 0.5" sizing is spot on.  It's lovely, but delicate.  I hope I don't rip it apart.

Hi all. I just received the trial suit today and I am obviously excited so I took some "selfies." I will clearly be seeking Mr. Wang's input, but I want to wait until I can get someone to take pictures for me in daylight. I have a few obvious insights, but I am a total amateur so I don't want to bias your opinions by saying something stupid. In other words, I'll just let the pictures speak for themselves. I am 5'9" and 145 or 150lbs (haven't weighed myself in a long time). The jacket is the 34R and the pants are 30. For reference, the shirt is a BB extra slim fit 14.5/33. Thanks in advance!

^ jacket sleeves are obviously very short, and the jacket might need to be lengthened just a hair as well, but the pics are pretty dark so it's hard to tell. Buttoning point might need to be lowered just a tad as well, depending on your personal preferences. Shoulders look pretty good from what I can see.
post #2397 of 4476

Ditto Beatlegeuse.  Also, I'd recommend letting the waist out a bit if you keep the current button stance.  Your shoulders are narrow in proportion to your waist and hips.  Letting the waist out a bit will make it look a bit more proportional.  I think it would also alleviate some of the creasing in the midsection as well.  Looks pretty good though.

Thanks to both Beatlegeuse and An Acute Style. Perhaps what I really need is more time on the shoulder-press machine! To be honest, I am thinking that I might need to go up to the 32 waist on the pants...or at least the existing ones are going to need to be let out because I feel like something bad could happen if I bend over or squat down. But seriously...a 34 chest and a 32 waist? Does that put me into freak of nature category? It is not that I have much of a belly...the Brooks Brothers extra slim fit shirts are still too billowy in the waist for me...

Hey all: I've been dying to buy one of Kent's polos but my size is out of stock for a couple months. Anyone have any recommendations for something similar (price and fit)? Going on an early summer trip and need me some polos. Many thanks to all.

I imagine standard padding/more structure in the shoulder will do you favours in this situation I imagine if you haven't already opted for that. I haven't seen anyone that's a drop 2 before!
