    Thanks, Kent. Glad to see some are already available. Which of these colors is purple? 52? And how would you characterize 184? Is it a melony orange?

    The most purple to me, is the burgundy (142), which we already have. The 52 is more of a maroon. I don't think there's a mid-purple.

    184 I would call coral. It looks nice and may get added at some point.

    If you ever get mid blue #99 I'd be in for that too!

    Have you officially made the switch to 57" ties? I approve of this. 57x3.25 is optimal for me...I might have to pick a few up, now.

    Yes, almost all are 57", which is the industry standard. All the tie product pages should list the length.

    OK, I'll have it in about six weeks.
    Kent is your stuff all online or do you have a bricks and mortar store in Austin too?
    Sorry, I missed this earlier. No, we do not maintain a storefront.

    Thanks, Kent. I'm in for a #99 in the narrow width.

    Great news about the #99, please continue to bump this thread with news on that or any other new items you are stocking. Cosigning the comments about great service and quality, and wishing you continued success.

    [​IMG] GuillochÃ[​IMG] enamel blue double-sided cuff links I have been working on a guillochÃ[​IMG] enamel design for over two years, ever since I saw the FabergÃ[​IMG] collection at the New Orleans Museum of Art. The collection features a few eggs, but I was most inspired by the numerous cigarette cases that were done in guillochÃ[​IMG] enamel. After working with several jewelers and many samples and iterations, I am proud to finally offer these cuff links.

    Has anyone tried Kent's MTM program? I was just looking at the details on the website and it looks like it might be a pretty solid deal. Anybody have any results that they care to share? I was thinking about giving it a try.

    I emailed Kent about it but he wanted me to order a shirt first. Problem is, I already know the collar won't fit since the largest he has is 16.5. So I left it at that. I would be willing to try it if they offered a 17 collar.

    Yeah, it looks like you have to order a shirt first, then you can keep it if it fits you or provide alterations for MTM if there are measurements you wish to change. Might be a good deal, but I just signed up for the April No Purchase Club after splurging a bit this weekend...maybe next month.

    Sure, we can make any size collar after you try on a shirt. The only cost you have to pay for is to ship the shirt back, which is about $3 first class. I'll then make the new shirt with all the modifications you want, at no extra charge. This ends up with a perfect fitting shirt the very first time, versus paying full price at another MTM tailor for a shirt that doesn't fit so well the first, and maybe even second time. Or, if you're certain that the only modification you want is to make the collar bigger, then we can make that for you, but we don't accept returns on custom orders, as is the case with any other MTM tailor.

    Wait - Kent - so if I understand this right, we would send you a shirt, say change this, change that, you send back our shirt with a "custom" shirt in a fabric of choice?

    No, you buy a shirt a shirt from me, not send me one of your own shirts. See the MTM section on my site.
