It's always best to rely on our website photos. They're professionally photographed and edited on a calibrated monitor.

End of March.

Just received my package from KW. Shoes look awesome. I have some slight heel slippage but I should be able to tighten it a little more than I did.





Unfortunately, the sweaters were much darker in real life than they appear on the website. The light grey sweater is more like medium grey and the tan sweater is more like taupe. I guess I should have seen this coming as the blue sweater was closer to navy than I thought it would be and the description said "tan." However, it really looks like a standard camel or oatmeal colored sweater on the website and I'm not sure how versatile taupe can be in comparison.

Here's a picture to give you an idea of the color. Sorry for the quality, it's still in the package as I'm not sure if I want to take it out yet but you can clearly see it is darker than the cardboard box it came in.

I wish I had read your post before I had put in my order for the light grey sweater yesterday..

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.

This arrived yesterday - very happy with the fit out of the box. I'll try to put up some pictures, time allowing.

Two slight disappointments - I specified for the jacket to 3r2, and to have a ticket pocket, both confirmed in my order confirmation email; the jacket has neither.

Thanks for the update.  I'm planning on making a trip to NY in a few weekends to look at tuxedo options.  Can you post pics of your stuff? (and what happens re: your ticket pocket/3R2)

I already have one white polo (with navy stripes) from Polo Ralph Lauren (Kind of like this one:http://www.davidhollier.co.uk/image/cache/data/Men%20Ralph%20Lauren%20Stripe%20Polo/Ralph%20Lauren%20Single%20Stripe%20Polo%20in%20White%20navy1-450x450.jpg)

Looking to purchase two more from Kent Wang. I'm thinking a solid navy one (http://www.kentwang.com/polos/polo-navy.html). What other colour should I get if I only own three polos?

Regarding fit, I presume I'll be a medium in Kent Wang given I'm a small in PRL custom fit.

If it helps, I'm asian with black hair and eyes. Will be wearing these with navy shorts/raw denim/khaki and mustard chinos.

Will there be restocks on the shoes or do you plan on rolling out different ones for 2014?

I received an order yesterday for a 2pc suit in Ariston navy AR0011. Some highlights and unfortunately more disappointments. I flew into NYC to get a fitting at the pop up store. 

 

First impressions were that the suit is beautiful. Well made, good quality, and I loved the fabric. But the jacket will need some minor tailoring and there were a few things wrong:

 

1) I bought a tie and 2 pocket squares that they were holding to ship with the suit and they didn't arrive. Hopefully they are right behind...

2) I asked for stacked buttons on the jacket sleeves. They came non-stacked.

3) Button stance was supposed to be lowered but feels the same as the trial suit. I wonder if they have a way to verify if their shop made the correct adjustment. 

4) Fit on the pants are very off. Unwearable. I tried on a larger size first, and it was too big. I tried on the smaller size and it was good, just needed the waist let out slightly and a few other minor adjustments. The pants are so big that I think they made the adjustments based on the larger size. Totally different pair of pants than what I tried on.

 

I emailed them last night about everything. We'll see where it goes. Having flown into NYC for the fitting, I was really hoping to get a near perfect fit that wouldn't require any additional tailoring. I hope the pants can be replaced.

Interesting, this is the second post in the last few weeks with the same type of problems.
post #3539 of 4435

The mistakes are definitely unfortunate. Especially if a mistake was made that cant be fixed. But mistakes will happen... whats most important is how it's resolved.

I am intrigued by Kent's expansion into dinnerware:

It resembles karatsu-yaki although I haven't seen a shade of blue like this before.  I wonder where it's made.
