    Waist in 1cm, right sleeve length -0.5cm, left sleeve length -1cm, rotate right arm back a couple degrees. It might be a little tight across the back.

    The answer to this question is probably obvious, but I haven't seen it addressed. The MTM process with e-mails back and forth between Kent and the customer can address everything except inseam, right? I assume that the finished suit will come with unfinished trouser hems that the customer takes to a local tailor for hemming.

    I'm seriously thinking of making the trip to NYC this weekend to get all my measurements done in one fell swoop.

    I got the trousers on my suit made with a finished inseam and a 2" cuff

    I also ordered mine finished, I just went with the inseam of a pair of trousers that fit me quite well. But it is possible to order them unfinished.

    Kent, do you ever plan on making more outerwear in the future? Like an overcoat or maybe the trench in different colors (tan or charcoal or a dark grey would be great)

    Kent, I have a similar agenda sftiger--check out wares in person and ask some questions. I would like to stop by on Friday and wondered when would be the least buy time of the day from 11 to 7? I see that on RSVP page that Friday & Saturday are busiest.

    Making a khaki trenchcoat in the summer.
    Right now, all times are about equally busy.

    I'm not bringing very much stock to sell, just some pocket squares, ties, cuff links, plaintoe shoes, watches, some leather goods that aren't on the website. If you do want to buy those, then it would be better if you came on Monday afternoon, so other people can still see those goods throughout the weekend.

    Does anyone have any pictures of Kents knit ties in "action"?
    I have one knit from Howard Yount which is very light and see through, which, I prefer. How would Kents knits be in comparison to Howards? It´s quite difficult to determine from the pictures on Kents website if the knits are see through or not.

    I have a blue knit tie from KW and a black one from HY. Kent's are not see through like HY's. I did find Kent's a bit on the short side for length. You can't really go wrong with either.

    I have a navy one (pointed tip) and they are not see through at all. Great for summer and seersucker!

    I have a Kent Wang bi-color tie that I LOVE. Would you mind taking a side-by-side comparison? Maybe with some light from the back end?...

    I'd be very grateful!
