I have a feeling that SS gets discount proprietary fabrics from brand name mills so they can use them for marketing purposes (and it works).

My next jacket will probably be from KW. I just wish he did more OTR stuff in staple fabrics. I don't know anyone on this site who would choose SS over his products.
Email.

Can you expand on this? Not proof, or anything, but your thinking behind it.

 

Also, keep in mind there are some fabrics offered through Kent (non-CMT) in which the price range for top level SS will get you a 3 piece suit...in addition to all the things you mentioned.

I have never tried on a KW SC, so I am not sure how it will fit. Price point is the same for SC

Suede shoes are best shoes.

Like the tie.
Coat is too small. Sleeves don't fit at all.
Pocket square is cool.
Shirt cloth is nice.

What do you have in suede? I know you have some beautiful reddish suede oxfords right?

Thank you. FWIW I think it's actually one of my better fitting coats. Just weird contortion to get a decent selfie. Here's a full pic :

 

 

 

Perhaps a little tight in the waist :embar:

Sleeves are too short for my liking with your arms at natural rest, but the jacket length seems fine and no collar gap etc. etc.

While I disagree, Rick Ross agrees with you, so I don't really have a leg to stand on (or, dare I say, a shoe to stand in) in this debate lol.

Dazedstate,
That looks better.
Doing contortionist moves can be hard on a garment.

Then you sit down and bend your arm and show off half of it ... no thanks

@TM79 how much would your preference allow for? Say half inch longer?

I think so. I was exaggerating in my last post, obviously. Without having some exact measurement in mind I like to show a little more than a sliver of shirt cuff while standing. Does that mean probably showing like .5" of cuff? Probably in that neighborhood.

I keep my jacket on if I am sitting at work or at dinner or wherever, but I know a lot of others take their jackets off.

Anyways, big pet peeve of mine is when the sleeve rides up too high when you're sitting down and such.

Yeah, he's been traveling quite a bit and probably just checks email while on the road. Also, with email, you also can contact Aaron (who isn't on SF as far as I know)
