I went over today - although the trench was not quite what I was after, I did end up with an order for a 3-piece in Ariston Navy (AR0011).

I must say, very impressed by the apparent quality of the construction, choice of fabrics and price point. Also, Aaron is a lovely chap - very knowledgable, helpful and good to have a chat with.

I think I may have been in the pop up shop at the same time as you getting fitted with my girlfriend. Could be wrong though... But the dates seem to match up and I remember someone coming in to try on the trench.

 

I am also considering AR0011. I keep going back and forth. When looking at this fabric in sunlight, it seems to have nice blue to it without being overly dark which I like

Does kent wang offer peacoats?

And who makes the cashmere sweaters?
post #3499 of 4529

Any updates on whether the pop-up shop will continue to operate past New Year's?

 

I went in for a fitting a few weeks ago and had a great experience with Aaron, who was very patient with my fianceé and me. I would definitely want to stop by again the next time I'm back in NY.

No. I'm not a huge fan of them; I just wear sportcoats most of the time. Maybe in the distant future.

It will continue to run indefinitely.

There were a lot of backorders that were filled so only a few left. The next restock is Jan 31.

Interested in other folks assessment who have purchased one. Where does this stack up in terms of quality versus other brands and price ranges?

So I bought one of the new sweaters and tried on one of the cashmere sweaters on sale at brooks brothers the other day. The prices were similar with KW being around $50 cheaper. I don't know enough to say definitively which is better since I know nothing about cashmere and on paper, 3-ply and Scotland make BB sound a lot better. However, I like the fit of KW, the blue color is great, Kent has been great at answering my questions about cashmere, it felt softer and comfortable, and it was less expensive. I am strongly considering buying the other two colors after Christmas. It's too bad there's no burgundy though.

Is it just me or is the white polo semi transparent?

Mine is just about the heaviest most opaque white pique I've ever seen.

I think the cashmere from Brooks Brothers is still sourced from Asia though, so the only difference is where it is spun and made.

Just ordered a pair of the handgrade single monkstrap in medium brown. Very excited to see these in person, and hoping the fit will work for me.

^ I tried these on at the pop-up shop - really nice leather and detailing, and ran TTS for me.

After searching in vain for weeks, it would be great to have staple & formal silk suspenders/braces at a mid-range price ($55?).

I'm really close on pulling the trigger on the medium brown as well. foo.gif
