A little late, but, as promised, here is a picture of the green gloves.  The color of the picture is accurate on my Iphone, but not so much on my computer screen at work.  They are much more olive in color than bright green.

Appreciate it. They definitely look like an almost blue-green on my computer as well.

I picked up a KW 16" white linen square as a companion to my KW 12' white linen square, and, to my surprise, there is a marked difference in color and texture. I would almost call the 16" inch square "natural" Anyone else have experience with both of these squares? Is this normal?

What color would you guys consider this to be? TRV04 from the VBC Four Season catalog, https://farm1.staticflickr.com/483/18768833835_54a13b3f76_k.jpg

I am looking for a solid standard weave fabric that has this specific color, exactly like this, http://www.harrisonsofedinburgh.com/assets/images/H-Lesser-suit.jpg

The ariston books are sold out otherwise AR0011, AR0006 would have worked. Can someone help please.

I don't see a TRV084 in the VBC 4-season collection, unless you meant TRV048? To me that's a birdseye pattern in a mid-navy.

On the topic KW MTM suits, I recently had a very positive experience with Aaron at the NYC location. His measurements were spot on and fixed several issues I've had in other MTM suits. I ordered a 3pc with a blue Arston fabric, the suit arrived in 6 weeks and the fit was great. I've visited the NYC store since then and made some very minor adjustments with Aaron for the next order. My first suit needed no adjustments at all, except for the expected hemming of the trousers.

I'm getting ready to order few other suits from Kent and would appreciate some advise on fabric choice. I'm looking for 4-season fabrics in the 130s/140s range for 1-2x weekly normal wear, the VBC 4-season seems to fit the bill. So far I want to fill in the charcoal, navy, and light grey choices and am looking at: TRV04 for Navy, TRV01 or TRV06 for charcoal, and TRV03 for a mid grey.

What do you all think?

My trial suit showed up today, and it already fits well enough that I would strongly conside buying it if I simply stumbled across it at a store. I'm very, very excited to email some pictures to Aaron and finalize my MTM order. That dude is amazingly patient, I've sent him at least a dozen emails so far, and he's answered every question I've had thoroughly.

I apologize, I meant TRV04. So you think TRV04 is a navy and not a dark blue?

I do believe TRV04 is a navy, please see attached photo I took at the NYC store last month (lovely fingers not mine). It's from an iPhone with direct sunlight. The fabric one down, TRV09, is a midnight navy if you are looking for something darker.

Thanks thats very helpful, but Im actually looking more for this particular color, semi dark blue, http://www.harrisonsofedinburgh.com/assets/images/H-Lesser-suit.jpg

The ariston catalogs had the fabric I wanted, but its sold out. If you could recommend something closely to this... I would be appreciated. I just need to choose my fabric to finalize my order with Aaron.

What do you think about TRV08? That looks like a dark blue to me, though probably a few shades lighter than what you are looking for. I only had a chance to look at the VBC book but Aaron got some new Huddersfield fabric in and there might be a dark blue in there. Hope that helps!

Forgot to post this a month or so back. Re-doing my trial suit - Found out I have a dropped left shoulder.

Lighting aside, it looks to be a pretty solid jumping off point.

@Kent Wang  Any plans to get access to Drapers/Caccippoli/Delfino etc? (any of the other italian mills)

post #5325 of 5566

Received my Kent Wang umbrella from Massdrop yesterday, and took it for a spin today. It has a beautiful feel and I love the weight. The canopy also feels sturdier than any umbrella I've ever had, and the spines are built much more solidly. I'm thrilled to have a beautiful umbrella that will last instead of spending the same amount on 6 or 7 that break after a year.
