Kent will make the recommended adjustments close enough that I wouldn't worry about having it done. At worst, some minor adjustment at a local tailor will get it perfect. When I did my suit with Kent, the sleeve length turned out perfectly.

Thank you all who chimed in. Reading all these positive comments makes me very excited on the final outcome. Just out of curiosity, most of my email correspondence are with other mtm members, other than Kent himself. Seems like KW is too busy to handle everything but i would like he is very much involve during the entire process.

I believe Kent is currently kicking sartorial ass at his New York trunk show, so I'd cut him a little slack between now and Monday for that reason.
post #3244 of 4576
But my correspondance with them has been going on for the past 3 weeks and all except for a couple of non fitting responses are by other members of his mtm team. Im hoping Kent will hav a final say on the final recommendations

Does any one have the brown and or burgundy knit ties? If so could you please describe the color IRL or provide pics?

He's also been traveling through Europe, I think, during the last several weeks.

Seems Kent is busy, so, for those who know do the shoes get restocked? Seems like the medium brown oxfords have been sold out for a long time.

Hi, after ordering a and trying the trial suit, what exactly can be modified for your last suit? 

 

Can the button stance be lowered/heightened? 

Can one shoulder be made shorter/wider than the other? 

Can the back/shoulder section be adjusted for hunching, sloping or squaring of shoulders, collar gap/back bunching. 

etc. 

 

Or are there just minor modification made to a new stock suit, like adjusting sleeve length, taking in  waist.

 

Thanks

lots of stuff can be modified. i'm pretty sure (to a certain extent) everything you listed above and more. i say "to a certain extent" because your changes are modifications to an existing pattern, and probably certain things cannot be drastically changed without throwing off the "balance" of the pattern you're working from.

like topos said, they are modifying the pattern of the suit being made for you, not making modifications to an already made suit. Wouldn't be MTM if it was the latter.

Might be two months. It has been difficult reordering this color.

Button stance, yes.

 

I've never encountered shorter shoulders. Usually it's that one shoulder slopes more than the other, which we can accommodate by adjusting the shoulder angle to match.

 

Yes to all of those.

Awesome, sounds like I'll be placing an order not too long from now then. 

 

Which of your available fabrics would look most like this? I'm basically looking for a staple Navy suit, which is a bit more blue than dark...and not too dull. Have enough of dark-dark navy suits.

They do, email sales@kentwang.com - I emailed 2 days ago about the 3.5 inch brown cashmere tie, next day I got a reply they were back in stock.

Thanks! I just ordered the dark brown half hoping the 8.5 do not fit so I can exchange and snag that last size 8 in medium brown, too redface.gif

This looks a lot like the first suit I ordered, but I can't remember the fabric number right now. I want to say it was something like TR7065, but I'll look it up and get back to you. That is one weird looking vest on that guy though...
