My opinion:
I've never worn the jacket. Was a waste, as it was is a pretty poor to terrible fit in all respects. Too tight, too short, poor chest fit, high neck. etc.
Never thought I'd come full circle back to KW but now that they offer English mills here I am. I have an awesome pant maker I've found locally, but still no one to make a decent jacket. I would like to combine the two to come up with a good MTM suit option (Kent's pants also never worked for me).

Looks pretty clean to me. Maybe a tiny bit more room in the waist, otherwise, I can't find anything that looks off. Do you find the fit uncomfortable?

In my limited experience with suits, this seems to be a pretty good fit. The chest pieces lay fairly flat, the buttons don't pull, the shoulder does not show any odd divots, and button stance seem to be pretty good. The length of sleeve and jacket is fairly good, the neck does seem a little high and the collar can be dropped to fix this. Is it the style that you don't like or there is some discomfort with wearing it? I've found with full canvass suits, it helps to wear it and dry clean it a few times, and the fit will conform to your body a little better.

You mentioned English Mills, I assume it's Huddersfield you referring to? What do you think of their 120s 4 season fabrics compared to the VBC 130s 4 season fabrics? I don't have a lot of experience with fabrics in general and certainly none with English Mills, so any insight would be appreciated it!

lightnnj that jacket looks good, aside from the above mentioned buttoning pout (which can be altered) and left sleeve pitch (which is hard to say given your arm placement). I don't exactly know what you mean by "high neck" but the shirt that you're wearing in the photo appears to have a very limp collar which clearly doesn't pair with the suit. If that's a look you're going for then KW may. It be right for you, but I'd agree with Aaron based off of the pics provided.

I'm afraid not. Now that I live in London, it's hard to do trunk shows in the US.
