Back of the jacket and trousers look very messy. Don't know about the trousers, but the jacket can be cleaned-up with some tailoring and definitely on any future MTM orders.

I got fitted at the popup store in NYC and the sleeves were supposed to be shortened but I realized after I received the suit that this was not in the confirmation email with the adjustments they sent me and these sleeves measure the standard length for a 40R. Anyways, there is 1.5" of fabric below the end of the last button (functional), so I believe while not optimal they can be shortened .5" or .75" at absolute most without throwing off the balance. I don't think I'll be able to tell how the pants really drape until I have them hemmed, so I will try to get pics after I send them to my tailor so I can make adjustments for future orders.

I'm guessing the back should clean up a bit when the waist is taken in since there is a lot of extra fabric through the waist (my upper waist measurement is only about 29.5" and this is the standard 40R shoulder) which when paired with my posture and causes it all to bunch in the back yet still look relatively OK from the front. Any suggestions on how else the back could be cleaned up a bit for future orders?

Reduce the back chest, waist, and possibly chest as well.

Yep. KW's terminology, not mine. I had a slight amount of wrinkling/excess material on the upper back of my trial jacket, so we reduced the back chest 1.5 cm to clean it up. Basically, it's the measurement across the back from pit to pit.

Made my first KW purchase this week, the Ancient Madder Paisley pocket square. What a beauty. I'm considering purchasing two pairs of trousers in the herringbone. Has anyone purchased these previously? I'm looking for a heavier weight fabric, perfect for cold weather and pairing with a tweed jacket.

So I have a ton of questions- some more bizarre than others.

 

I bought a white polo among some other items and became a pretty big fan of Kent Wang's line.

 

So I noticed with the White short-sleeve Polo I purchased (the heavier material) that even on the hottest of hot days, they did not show a bit of sweat.  For me that's ideal, as sometimes with lighter materials even light sweat tends to show.  

 

I was wondering how that translates to the long sleeve dress shirts of Kent's.  Are they of a comparable material ?  Is there variance?  Basically what I'm looking for is something I won't sweat / show sweat in as I am on the move A LOT during the work day in a business casual environment.  

 

 

Anyway...I was looking for input, as I'm sure the lot of you have a lot more experience/knowledge than myself.

 

I was also curious on the quality of Kent's ties.

I don't know about the long sleeve rugby (love the short sleeve white Polos too), but the ties are top notch, I have several grenadines.

Kent, is the new watch going to be going up for pre-ordering or will it just debut on the website on the 10th?

I received a suit that I had been measured for at the original NYC trunk show which turned out similar to yours. I had the same 1.5" of extra fabric between the cuff/1st button and the tailor had no problem correcting the sleeve without having to shorten from the shoulder or anything drastic like that. My pants were similar to yours as well. The extra length was easily corrected but the excess fabric on the back/side of the leg was more difficult to fix. It took a couple of attempts to solve. The first attempt left the back really clean but had tightened the fit around the thigh/seat making it  uncomfortable. Backing off the fit brought back some of the excess but they are much improved from the original. As for the back of the jacket just bring the suit back to the popup store or to a good tailor and see what suggestions they have. For what it is worth, my jacket was too tight so we just let the sides out a bit for a simple fix.

Re: I was also curious on the quality of Kent's ties.  

 

I have three ties from Kent, navy gren grossa, gray glen plaid, and brown cashmere - zero complaints with any. I find the gren grossa ties the best knot most of the time, where the cashmere sometimes ends up being slightly smaller than I want when I knot it most days, but the quality and look is spot on.
