Lapel flower $10. New color: purpleA flower worn in the lapel, also known as a boutonnière, was common—even de rigueuer—until the 1960s. If you don’t have a live flower on hand, wear one of these hand-folded paper flowers instead.

Where are the cashmere scarves made?

 

The cashmere scarves are made in China, where most of the world's cashmere goats live.

 

Decades ago Europe may have had a technological advantage in spinning cashmere fiber, but that is no longer the case as the German spinning machines are sold globally.

 

It is wasteful to ship the fiber to Europe, both in terms of cost to the consumer and the environment, when the entire production process can take place in China. Of course there are low quality goods made in China, but we have always selected the highest quality producers.

 

I hope you'll find that our history of making high quality wares to be more informative than a simple country of origin statement.

Thanks,

Yes, but only if size 36 is your size.

Kent, great insight. I have purchased your items before and know they are high quality. I will definitely consider one of your scarves.

Any recommendations for a mid blue unstructured casual 3 season suit or odd jacket?

For those of you who have not been following the charity auction thread, we are auctioning two (2) Kent Wang watches for the Ronald McDonald House.

Has anyone commissioned Kent for a hopsack "blazersuit"?? I was considering getting a navy blazersuit in a few months and would love to see pictures of any existing ones. Probably unstructured, half-lined, 3-roll 2, no padding on the shoulder, patch pockets, that sort of thing. Very inspired by @brillopad 's Loro Piana hopsack that he had made (plus pants).

Remmeber, if you dont feel the trial jacket fits, you can order one in a different size to be sure.

That's the new KW jacket? How do you like the standard lapels?
post #5126 of 5903

I'd love a middle ground between standard and wide.

post #5127 of 5903
I know what you mean. I think I'd do wide notch, or standard peak (peak tends to look wider for some reason).

I completely agree.  I go with the wide lapels, but would love it if they were slightly more narrow. 

post #5130 of 5903
The wide lapels are 4 inches, yes?
