    Yes they do. The Fox offerings in particular are hard to resist as autumn draws closer.

    I'd also encourage people to take a look at the W.Bill Donegals. It's not a cheap fabric (G in Kent's pricing structure I think), but the value proposition still makes a lot of sense for a great cloth.

    Yep, was pumped to see it. Fox is no biggie, as you can order direct, but the all in one convenience is nice.

    Some of Caccioppoli's wool/silk suiting blends look awesome as well.

    I am actually just waiting for Aaron to send me the invoice for a MTM jacket in this one. I had the swatch earlier this year, it's got some rich depth.

    Question, picked up a pair of KW hand grade white sneakers from eBay for a great price. Are there any major differences between the bench grade and hand grade, besides the leather and stitched sole? Thanks!

    The materials and construction are completely upgraded. These are literally the 2 most major factors that come into play when assessing the quality of anything.

    Can anyone provide an opinion on the fit of the 50mm keyhole sunglasses on a bigger head, which I do have? I typically wear a 54mm Ray-Ban.

    I understand that but I was just wondering aside from that if there was anything apart between the two. I'm not complaining, considering I paid under $60 for my pair.

    Suspenders are the best way to hold up your trousers, as they always hold the trousers at the same height and prevent them from sliding down. They also take the pressure off the waist and lower back.

    Around September 1.

    No, the inventory cost of carrying different lengths is too great. I suggest you use our made-to-measure service. You could order a 38R, see how it fits, send us photos, and we'll figure out exactly how much length to reduce.

    Wanted to post a quick photo of my CMT suit with an extra pair of trousers I received a few weeks ago. This is my third Kent Wang suit.

    Fabric - Minnis Rangoon Light Navy (bought on a special run from a forum member)
    Construction - light canvass, natural shoulder, higher gorge, standard lapel 3r2, half lined
    Trousers - each pair unlined with side tabs and deep single pleats
    One pair is a button fly with tab closure and the other with a button closure and zip (it was supposed to be buttons with buttons and closure with zip.. seemed to be a minor mixup at the factory).
    Buttons - grey mother of pearl

    Overall, very happy with the suit. The trousers came with the length finished (had requested unfinished) which took some fine tuning. Suit has been great for the less humid New York days. Light canvass was a great option and will most likely be my preference on future orders.

    Was also very happy with the new lining options. I went with a green paisley dot:

    Hope to get some shots of me wearing it as well as some shots of my other two up soon (though my first had to take a trip to the reweaver due to a fall in Philly a few weeks back...)

    Very happy with everything to date from Kent Wang.

    I viewed them in person with Aaron. Not sure if they are on website yet.
