The way my shoulders and chest are built (I am wider as you look at me from the front compared to my depth as you look at my profile, if that makes sense) I always have a slight bowing issue with every single jacket I have ever worn. When I really stand upright, my shoulders separate the material. I probably should have the chest made slightly larger to combat this. But I like jackets a little trimmer. The lapels also appear to be cut with just a slight curve. And finally, these lapels have a nice roll to them. The more I stare at the picture, the more I think that plays into how it looks in a 2D picture. Some combination thereof. Some day I will go to a tailor and have him dissect the issue.

I placed my order April 27, paid the invoice on April 28, Kent emailed to say it was done and in transit to their warehouse on May 28, it was shipped to me on June 3 and arrived at my house June 6.

Cousin D:  if you add to the chest, but also narrow the collar, you may be able to preserve the fit while addressing the lapel bowing issue.  I defer to KW on this issue, but worth a discussion with him.

Cousin D: What shoulder option is that? It looks great.

Sorry I missed this part of the question.....this is a Cottonwork shirt. The collar is what they call a cutaway.

I don't quite know how I feel yet about the unstructured jacket. I think I've gotten used to the other fully canvassed KW jackets, so this one feels a little flimsy by comparison. But, I think that's the point, and I just haven't gotten used to wearing an unstructured jacket yet.

Beat, any pics of the unstructured jacket you mind sharing?

The suit is with my tailor right now, I'm not getting the jacket altered at all, he's just opening the pockets & vents and removing the thread through the shoulders (not sure what the technical name is for that). The pants needed hemming and I'm getting the legs tapered just a tad, so I'll be able to pick everything up at the end of this week. I'll post some pics then.

I hope he isn't charging you for this...

+1. Lol. The thread through the shoulders is called basting, and it's very easy to remove it yourself.

He's doing this free of charge, I just figured it was easier to leave everything in one place and have him do it. Since he has the trousers, it made no sense to hold on to the jacket since I can't wear it without the pants anyway.

International shipping rates increased quite a lot? I paid $11 shipping to germany for a polo some years ago, now its $43 :(

Yup, noticed the same thing for Canada. Fortunately, I live close to the US border so I can have it shipped State-side and drive down there myself to retrieve my package. However, I still have (honesty is the key) to declare them to Customs and get raped with taxes of all sorts. I still save on brokering fees and shipping.

Due to an excessive amount of lost packages, we've recently disabled first class shipping to Germany and Singapore, along with Ukraine, Russia, Kazakhstan, South Africa, Malaysia.

 

All shipping rates increase every year, in line with USPS rates. We don't make a profit on shipping—in fact, we take a loss.

Are you f****ing kidding me? I can't figure out for the life of me why in the hell anyone would do that.
