It's not a flaw by any means, just a matter of preference. Not a deal breaker by any means. For whatever reason, I prefer seeing them set lower on a jacket.

Could you provide pics of what you think is ideal? I'm looking at some examples from other respected makers, including Formosa and Ring Jacket, and their placement of patch pockets looks virtually the same as KW's, proportionally speaking.

I will see what I can find. Super frustrating because I know exactly what I'm picturing, and I can just about swear I know an exact pic of what I'm talking about...will report back

You mean where they start? or where they end up? (or width)

That looks really nice @heldentenor  The only tweak I would make is lowering the buttoning point by a smidge.

Thanks for the write-up. How do you feel about the drape of unstructured jackets in some of the more common blends combining WO/SE/LI/CO?

Have wanted to buy the blue-brown bi-color knit tie forever, and finally pulled the trigger recently when a buddy was buying a tie for his wedding, so I had him throw it in the cart.

Super great.

That is all.

Anyone with a recommendation for a pinstripe fabric in navy?

Just been to see Kent to place an order for a navy jacket. Looking forward to seeing it in a couple of months!

Hi i just received my Kent Wang jacket and worn it straight out of the box, so apologize for any wrinkles you see. Can anyone let me know what I need to fix? I know the back needs to be clean up a little around the waist. What about the front waist/hip. Also is there anything wrong with the shoulder or is it okay? Thank you for your time. don't mind the pants. I was in a hurry

Good start. Maybe add to hip, waist, and length

What really? I was thinking about nipping the waist just a very tiny amount from the sides and nip the hips a little

Wigglr is spot-on.  The pulling at the button and especially at the back can be relieved by adding to the waist dimensions, and may also clean up the way the quarters splay a bit over your hips.  I'd also add a good inch to the length, but it's hard to give numbers from a glance at your photos.  Shoulders look slightly too wide.  Sleeve length is right on but you might rotate the pitch of your right sleeve just a bit to relieve some of the rippling.

These photos make it tough to judge the overall length, but I would agree that the waist is a bit tight, which is causing the pulling at the buttoning point. Some ease there may let the lower back fall more cleanly too.

 

I haven't had to alter any of my MTM jackets, apart from lowering the collar on my first order. For those of you that have had to make alterations, was there much allowance inside to let out?

I needed to let out the waist almost 2" and it was no problem.
