I had blissfully forgot who was the advocate of the exercises for fixing dropped or rotated shoulders since it last came up. Now I am reminded...

Lol.  It's like monkeyface has been reborn.

I wrote an extensive article about unstructured jackets. Anyone interested in linen should have a read.

Very cool - I'm definitely going to get an unconstructed seersucker jacket if not suit in the near future.

What fabric is the suit in the picture where you are holding the shoe? It looks quite nice and crisp even without canvas.

@Kent Wang

Just thought you might like to know:

On your website, in the info about the Navy nailhead jacket in the "suits" section, you mention that the fabric is no longer available for MTM. You suggest a similar fabric, TRG053, and link to a flickr image of a swatch book that presumably is supposed to show this particular fabric. Well, that pic instead shows what looks like all fall/winter fabrics, heavy tweeds, herringbones, etc., and TRG053 is nowhere to be found. https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5758/22165381885_c200590377_o.jpg

I think you meant to link this image instead, which is the collection of swatches containing the fabric in question: https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5814/20392741414_940062af4b_k.jpg

So this arrived today: 

 

 

 

 

 

I'm very pleased with the fit.  Just took the jacket out of the USPS box so it still has some wrinkles from shipping, but does anyone see any areas for tailoring on this guy or adjustments on my next order?

Looks very nice. Shoulders might be a bit extended for my taste but I would be pleased with it if I were you. Buttoning point might be a bit high for some and a little bowing above the shoulder (which might settle in), but I don't mind it. Sleeves could stand to be shortened just a bit. This is very encouraging because I'm planning on contacting KW soon for my first inquiries.

Agree with Caustic but overall great!

Details on fabric?

Thanks, Caustic.  I think I'll take the sleeves up .5cm next time.  Buttoning point feels about right but I wouldn't mind if it were 1-2 cm lower.  I'm curious to see about how the shoulders settle in--they're comfortable and feel snug without being tight.

Thanks!  It's a Merino Tweed from Abraham Moon.  Swatch 26 in the NS360-360 gram column here: https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5747/21542085684_147dc0d4fb_o.jpg.

The shoulders look a bit wonky, but otherwise, very nice fitting jacket!
post #5428 of 5900
Basic thoughts:

1. Pretty damn good from a wrinkling perspective. I'd assume those will hang right out.
2. Agreed regarding the shoulders. They don't look beefy, but I guess a bit beefier than I would have thought from what I've seen of KW (that could well be the angle/initial for/etc).
3. I'd also advocate a slightly lower button stance, though that it personal taste.
4. Would like to see the pockets be closer to the bottom of the jacket. Does anybody know if this is something KW can accommodate?

Do you mean lower pockets or longer? These start where they should IMHO.

I'm on my phone right now, so apologies if it's obvious, but it appears that there may be a rumple below the collar. Could be related to the shoulder, could just be because it's fresh from the mailbox. Hopefully he'll post some pictures after it's spent some time hanging.

I'm a bit confused about the comment regarding pocket placement, too. They look fine to me and don't need to be any closer to the bottom of the jacket. And I'm 99% sure that this is something that can't be changed. Kent has stated that the only MTM adjustments possible are what's listed on the options form on his website. And there's nothing regarding patch hip pocket placement.
