The sleeve problem might be solved by rotating the sleeves forward a bit. That's a common thing with my jackets and is easily solved in my case by adjusting the sleeve pitch.

We rotated the sleeves to get rid of the wrinkles in the front.  I'm a little hesitant to rotate them back.

Interesting.

Is that soft shoulders?

Has anyone ordered the green linen yet?

post #5481 of 5900

Not yet.  Have a pretty good idea of what I want to do with it, though, and will get my order in pretty soon so that I get it before the weather warms up.

Can anyone comment on the quality of the KW tux and the turnaround time?

I take that back.  I just looked at a picture of my first suit and there was no wrinkling in the front, only the back in the same way it currently is there.

So did KW rotate the sleeves at all?

Yes, though apparently not enough.

post #5486 of 5900

Gotcha. Yeah, definitely looks like it needs to be rotated. To be fair though, that's tough to get right without the tailor being there in person.

Agreed.  That's also one of the problems I've seen with Luxire as well - the tweaks are generally very conservative and incremental, so that it takes several versions to get things dialed down.  I do not think there is any way around it for online MTM.

post #5488 of 5900

True. I would rather adjustments be too conservative rather than too extreme for online MTM.

@New Shoes1 That suit looks great!  I'm trying to build a business wardrobe and have heard a bunch of great things about Kent Wang and am going to try and stop by his pop up location in NYC in a couple of weeks to see if his cuts will work with my heavier frame.  What fabric did you select for that new KW suit?

It's from the VBC four seasons book.  I cannot remember the specific swatch number.
