    Just had a chat with a friend / clothing adviser of mine and Kent and Curwen are opening a flagship store which he is going to manage. Showed me the test website I think it looks great.
    What are your thoughts?

    Who makes their suits? And how's the quality?

    That is a great jacket. Is the pic from their site? P.s. thanks for the recommendations re:linen shirts (over at AAAC - I grabbed two, they are pretty good for the price)

    Cool, a throwback to the Peacock Revolution.
    Dig the shirt and white brogues.

    Yes, I took a screenshot and cropped out the rest of the page.

    Quite welcome. They're certainly as nice as the offerings at J. Crew and Banana Republic, at a fraction of the price. Did you happen to get one in blue? My store doesn't stock the color, and I wonder if it looks as nice in real life as it does on the Web site.

    Check out the light blue on the ON site. Looks very nice.

    I kind of regret not ordering one when they were marked down to $16. The shipping put me off, and I'd hoped to get one locally. But then there weren't any at the store.

    Think my mate said the suits for Kent & Curwen are made by Durban in Italy. Don't know much about them - Anyone?

    You must really like them, to keep including their web address in your posts. [​IMG]

    actually it's d'urban. if it is d'urban, it's a japanese company that i believe has their manufacturing concern in italy. the brand is quite popular among gentlemen in hongkong, taiwan and japan.
