    If you wash it enough the crease will disappear no? I think by design KW's polo is not supposed to hug your biceps.

    Second time wearing my KW MTM suit and very happy with the finished result. I will shorten the sleeves on the next one and likely shorten the length in the back to address a balance issue, but otherwise very pleased with the fit and quality. Here are a few pictures:

    [​IMG]Here is the best I could come up with. Next time, I would probably lengthen the jacket 2cm.

    Some good looking suits, gents. Mine is back from the tailor and I am extremely pleased with the final result. I will try to post some pictures in full attire this weekend.

    New Shoes, what fabric is that?

    I don't remember the fabric number, but it's the basic navy fabric that Kent recommends to everyone. I'm really happy I went with his recommendation.

    Those sleeves, though. Gotta get those into the tailor soon.

    Good looking suits! Its definitely reassuring to see some nice finished work.

    We're on round two with a smaller jacket on the tester.

    Just received my blazer. The fit pics aren't great due to the angle. The sleeves here look good but in reality they need -.5cm.

    Wide lapels, patch pockets/welt pocket. I was unable to avoid the "anti-gravity" pose whilst overthinking the pictures. Unflattering angle and pose.. better ones tomorrow. And I'm working on getting a new camera.

    Lapel comparison. I haven't measured them yet. Left is standard. Right is wide. Again, shit camera. (ETA, measurements are spot on if you follow the lapel/collar seam)

    May I ask what button stance that is -- 3 button or 3r2 -- and what your chest size is, in terms of the lapel proportions. The wide looks great.

    Sorry, 3r2. 38. I'll probably go with 2 button and maybe wide lapel on patterned fabric.. or not at all. Its great but the standard is what I like more.

    Very cool. I'm always curious to see how the wider lapels look on smaller chest sizes -- as a size 36, it helps. The wide lapel is an acquired taste, though.

    Really? I recall the fit pics of the trial jacket you posted a week or so ago--it didn't look too bad at all. I certainly didn't see the need to size down two full sizes. Curious if that was Kent's recommendation, or your own idea?

    Agreed. Not for me. At least not on this particular one.

    And the 3r2 is more like a 3r2.5.

    Lapels measure along the seam correctly. 3.5 for my linen and 4.5 for the new one.

    Got the maroon longsleeve polo, really like the it, but the fit isnt really that slim.

    I am 6'2, 185 lbs (188cm, 84kg) and chose L and I got some excess fabric, it doesnt fit terribly, but could fit better.
    I am wondering for future purchases, should I size down (probably difficult to assess without pictures, going to try to take some asap)?
