    I have the set above. I did a test run with the tool on the right and it seems to be able to pull the thread up. The tool I have is alright right? (this whole thing is kind of frivolous but I wanna be sure haha)

    Are pockets on dress shirts a matter of preference or are there rules (i.e. should dress shirts have pockets?)

    I just started building my wardrobe and really like Charles Tyrwhitt shirts.

    Here's some that aren't solids that you may want to consider:

    Purely preference, though some maintain dress shirts should not have a pocket. That is a holdover from a time when most men wore vests. More formal shirts certainly should not have a pocket. Personally, I tend to get shirts with barrel cuffs with a breast pocket, and shirts with french cuffs without.

    You would be better off with a skinny necktie 2.25" to 2.75" inches. And a little semi-spread as well. :)

    On a pair of cotton twill slacks like this the stitching holes really will not be visible after a washing or two. I am with you on taking the label off, BTW.

    Different than Sunspel. KW polos are all pique instead of the jersey knit Sunspels are made of. In terms of construction and details I would say they're at least on par if not better.

    They should remake the entire thing for you then. I agree that you should not contest the charge on your credit card right away - give them a chance to make it right. However, keep in mind that a lot of credit cards have a 60 day limit on contesting charges. Please keep us posted.

    KW is on this site so you can probably ask him questions: http://www.styleforum.net/t/151480/kent-wang-affiliate-thread/

    From what I've heard, his polos are amazing based off of their price to quality ratio.

    Yep, took it off today. Looks so much better now.

    This is me in late 2009 when I was 367 lbs. The other picture is me from last month at 332 lbs. What do you about my weight loss?

    My neck size is still 18" and 34" sleeve (as of July 1, 2012). Now my chest is 52" (it was 54"), and my waist is 56" (it was 58"). When I was 367 lbs. in late 2009, my neck size was 19.5" with 35" sleeve, plus 60" chest and 60" waist. I'm glad I lost weight. Thank you God.

    msulinski,
    Yeah they replied and said they would remake at no costs to me. However they do want to look at it and make sure they can't fix it. I'm fine with that, I've had Tailors look at it and other friends and no-one thinks it fits or even fixable. I'm also a little unsure of the quality of the worksmanship at this point. I will reserve any comments about the maker while in the process.

    What I hope to say about the maker in a post on this board is... NAME the Company and then say, yeah bad start but they worked hard to resolve, made me another suit at NO Costs and it fits perfectly and I LOVE IT!!

    The true test is how a company or in regular life... how people respond to a mistake. We all make mistakes or try and things just sometimes don't workout, but IF we do everything in our power to make it right, that's what separates the good one's from the bad. I have faith in people until they burn me. So I'm fine with given them the chance to resolve. The only bummer is, I was so looking forward to that suit and now that it's NO GOOD, I have to wait another few weeks to get it. Oh the anticipation sucks, haha.

    So my fingers are crossed.
