    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.

    It seems that way. But you all think KW is better then Sunspel, yes?

    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.

    I just got some Alden 994's (Barrie Last). Now I am poor and still need to buy shoe trees. Do I have to spend another $50 to get Alden branded ones, or are there any other brands that would fit in the shoe and do the job for a cheaper price? Does Anyone know who makes the trees that Alden put their logo on?

    All good trees are around that price if you don't go ebay wise with used ones. So just go to your local shoemaker with the shoes and buy some :)

    $50? That's high. You can get them from The Alden Shop in San Francisco for $35. http://www.aldenshop.com/Store/DrawProducts.aspx?CategoryID=80&ParentID=2&PageID=&Action= I'm pretty sure they are Alden branded Woodlore, and you can get them from Woodlore for $25 http://woodlore.com/mm5/merchant.mv...de=M-Combo-Shoe-Tree&Category_Code=Shoe-Trees You can also pickup decent trees at a Nordstorms, if there is one near you, or at Allen Edmonds. And yes, buy the trees. You just bought some nice shoes, take care of them.

    I don't believe there is a shoemaker anywhere around town, and the only place that sells Alden shoes carries nothing in stock.
