Yes, it was his light navy run. Highly recommend the fabric.

I also know he's doing a run in light grey glen check now.

Hoping for another solid down the road, and would definitely commission again.

I'm 6 foot, but like to say 6'1" on a good day. Lapels are 4 inches wide.

Go for it! You're not a slim dude from what I can tell, and you look to have a pretty athletic physique. I think you'd be 100% fine with the wide lapels.

 

Edit: backhanded though that may have read, I swear that was a sincere compliment lol.

I'm cynical by nature, so no harm here.

 

Sadly my analysis paralysis has been preventing me from taking the 4" lapel plunge.

I'm 6 foot, 175, my 'wide' lapels look fine. They aren't any wider than Formosa and aren't as wide as eidos, if that helps

Is there a fabric book online for overcoats for 2016? Currently I only see 2013 and 2014 on the info page

Anyone own the charcoal overcoat that could offer some reviews/pics? (http://www.kentwang.com/outerwear/overcoat-charcoal.html#)

I have the made to measure version of the overcoat in the fabric. The wool is very soft, almost has more of a cashmere feel to it. Wore it hard last winter and it still looks new. Will get a pic or two of it up when it stops being 80 degrees in New York...

Warm is a relative term. I borrowed those swatches earlier this year and the RTW model is made up of a roughly 18oz cloth IIRC. Generally speaking, that's somewhat on the light side, but it's about an ideal weight combined with a suit (for me personally, in Canadian winter - YMMV).

So here's how this turned out when all was said and done:

Perfect length on the jacket and sleeves. :slayer:

Have the plaintoe balmoral's always been available in only black? I could have sworn there were brown variants at one point but it's been a while so I can't be sure.

I agree. It is on the lighter side, but still warm enough to serve its purpose over a suit. Works well for a New York winter (though I'm finicky at times when it comes to temperature). Any colder and I'm throwing on my down coat and hoping for the best.
