    Kent, when will you get in more of the white cotton pocket square with the light blue edge?

    I have the black KW balmorals and a pair of dark brown Carmina brogues on a rain last and I would say they are really close. One thing I would note is that I went 8uk in Carmina and 8.5us for KW and both fit perfectly.

    Thanks for the feedback! Interesting that you only went down 1/2 size from US to UK to fit into the Rain last. I wear a 12 in the KW brown captoes, and I was hoping that an 11UK in Rain would work for me (I have fairly narrow feet and actually wear felt tongue pads in my KW's to help them fit more snug, they'd be a tad too wide without them). Do you have much Alden experience? What do you wear in some of their shoes (Barrie, Leydon for example)?

    Speaking of shoes, does anyone know if the captoe balmorals will ever be available in black? In the market for some black captoes (not feeling the KW plaintoe for whatever reason) and I like the look of KW's captoes a lot more than the other options at this price (e.g. AE Park Avenues).

    I'd actually like to see a black punched captoe with a medallion on the same last as the brown captoe. I like the look of the handgrade balmoral from DC Lewis that Kent sells, but it doesn't look like they stock those in black.

    Lol... seems like every day, someone asks in this thread when polos will be restocked. Why don't you just email KW?

    I have noticed an unatural amount of wear in the crotch region of both pair of suitpants I have. They do not feel tight but maybe they are, is this anything you guys have experienced and do you now of any way this can be mitigated? As of now I would wear out a pair in a couple of months wich does not feel ok.

    How often are you wearing them?

    I'm debating ordering a second pair of trousers with my suit. On one hand, it should extended the life of the suit. On the other hand, this is my first mtm suit with kw. I don't expect it to be perfect, and 235 is a lot for one pair of trousers.

    This will be my 8th suit, so it's not like I'll be wearing it every day.

    Can anyone else weigh in on trouser wear, and whether a second pair is a prudent investment?

    Edit: found this thread. Probably ditching the second trousers and moving up a notch or two in fabric.

    mafooman made the best argument: "Anyway I like to assume that I'll be fabulously rich by the time my current trousers wear out."

    Whether or not I'm rich, I won't be as poor as I am now. Delay the expense. [​IMG]

    Lose weight so your thighs don't rub?

    Did you order a higher S-count fabric? Some of the more luxurious stuff is thinner and could wear out quicker.

    Maybe a weight loss would be suitable for me. However, I think that I'm pretty average when it comes to weigt and body shape (usually wear medium and waist mesurements is 32,5 inches). One pair I have is the A-range which I think is s 110, and one pair i think is s 130, to me I dont notice any differance between the two, its probably the rubbing part. I actually dont think that I can loose that much weigth maybe a coupe of pounds but i dont know if that would make any differance to the rubbbing problem. If any one knows about a tailoring solution to this issue I would appreciate it.

    Is Kent Wang's sizing up recommendation accurate for the polos (I really want to wear these polos untucked, so I don't want them long)? I am typically a medium in most brands I wear.

    Here are my measurements though:

    Shoulders: 19.5
    Chest: 42.5,
    pit to pit: 21
    Midsection: 33
    Waist: 32
    Bicep: 16.5
    I'm 5'10'' 174lbs

    A medium will be way too tight on you.

    Regardless, if the shirt is too long, making it shorter is an easy alteration.
