    ^ I ordered a navy hopsack blazer with the first fabric you mentioned, it's being made right now and I should get it in the next 2 weeks or so. I'll post a review here once I get it. I felt the swatch and it was really nice - had some texture to it, not super rough but definitely not as smooth as a super 120s or super 130s suit.

    I don't have a picture of me in mine, but I feel like a badass every time I wear it (which is often, given that it rains so frequently in Portland). Highly recommended. I believe Kent's also planning a khaki version for... not too long from now?

    I wore a blazer made of the Gladson 11 oz linen to an outdoor wedding in NH last weekend. I think I'd be uncomfortable in it in weather over 80 degrees, but I tend to be warm---so it might or might not work for you. I think it looks great, and eventually there should be some photos of me from the wedding that I can post here...

    Well, damn. I just assumed not since I've been emailing him for a week with no response.

    Kent - Please fulfill my last email request.

    Just got my (first!) white linen pocket square from Kent Wang - thanks!

    Especially liked the signed note that came with it - small touches like tend to convert me to a die hard fan who won't shut up about how awesome the retailer is!

    Hey All:

    Just received my trial suit and hope you guys can provide some feedback on fit and suggested measurements aside from what Kent has already provided (i'm a novice with suits). Also, the right sleeve seems shorter, but actually may not be because I feel my dress shirt's sleeve length is too large--a shorter sleeve dress shirt seemed fine when I purchased a suitsupply suit (i've also attached a photo with the shorter sleeve shirt in my suitsupply suit). Hopefully you can help my reconcile my odd situation? Maybe extra sleeve fabric is pushing the cuff down further?

    Here is my photo in my suitsupply suit with a shorter sleeve dress shirt:

    How often are shoes re-stocked?

    I'd personally consider adding some length to the jacket, maybe a slight nip at the waist. In the top picture your left shoulder looks a smidge lower than your right, which could be causing the longer sleeve look. What I see in the right is how I like to show shirt cuff. Perhaps measure the length of the SS sleeves and compare. And put on a "regular" sleeved shirt, not an outlier. Another way to look at it is to just determine where you want the end of the sleeve to hit. I like mine to hit at the wrist bone and my shirts to hit at the base of my thumb. So it doesn't matter what shirt I wear in a fitting, I measure to the same point.

    This stock suit fits pretty well, save for the pants length. I think you'll like the outcome.

    Hard to give tips when you've got your feet spread so far apart. Stand like you would normally to avoid incorrect input.

    Ever see any Texas trunk shows or are they pretty much limited to NYC?

    Just ordered a Rugby - I think this might be the shirt I've been looking for. Excited to try them out.

    Has anyone here purchased or tried the handgrade boot? Was looking at the green grenadine tie and somehow ended up in shoes and saw this

    Hey Kent, I might be dropping by your trunk show in NYC. Had a few questions about suiting:

    1. Can you do a double breasted vest?

    2. Can the trousers be customized with ‘Daks tops’?

    Thanks!

    No, we can't do either. Only the options listed on the options form are possible.

    Hey KW, placed my first order through you last night. Sky Blue Polo, Navy Polo, and a White Linen PS with Red Edge. Very keen to get them, but you guys REALLY need to do a cherry/vibrant red Polo!

    Is the pleat option forward or reverse pleats?

    We can only do reverse pleats (pleats open towards the pockets)
