    Thanks. Yes, this is Minnis Fresco II 0500. It is their lightest weight fresco. Since this is a summer suit, I also went quarter-lined. Kent convinced me to keep the lining in the pants, as the fresco is an open weave, and I didn't want the pants to be see-through. Kent assured me it is easy to have the lining removed.

    Kent's suggestion.

    Here is the 42 jacket, same trousers (but they're better for hanging a few days)

    The closeup of the chest just shows the tiny bit of puckering that's difficult to see from further out.

    Did you provide your own fabric? If so, where did you get the fabric?

    Hmm, I've also been thinking of getting polos from KW.

    I'm about the same height and weight as you (about 186 and 82 kg), and was thinking of getting an L, as the text said it was much slimmer than PRL polos.

    As body types can vary a lot, even with the approx. same height/weight, please post some pictures. :)

    I know it's inconvenient, but you should order two or more sizes and return what doesn't work.

    No surgeon's cuffs because I wanted easier tailoring if I needed to lengthen the sleeves (though there is faux button stitching). The trial suit sleeves were too short, and KW recommended a certain amount of lengthening, but I wasn't sure if it was enough without trying it on.

    Yes, tell me how well it worked.

    Have you been able to improve yours?

    I've been mulling the same question: are we confident enough on nailing the sleeve length to stick with the surgeon's cuffs.

    Taking some trousers to the tailor after breakfast. More fit pics inbound too. Kent's products are stellar.

    Unless you guys are very short, most of you should be lowering the button stance for your orders... including this one pictured.

    Here you go. I was thinking of altering the sleeves but I'm not sure how much. Threw it on the casual wear for quick outdoor pics. I wore the first blazer today. Looks good. Lengthened the sleeves a bit on the first, 1/3".

    I think that could use a touch more waist suppression but the shoulders and fit in the chest look great. Nice jacket.

    mrjester,

    Great look. Might have to steal the fabric selection for a future jacket...Looks to be a very versatile piece. Did you ever consider making this unstructured or was the linen casual enough without it?

    In other news, I've got some incoming KW goodies including the poplin blue dress shirt, navy polo, light blue oxford, and the following jacket:

    Fabric 7121 (shade lighter than navy)
    Patch pockets at the waist, welted breast pocket
    Soft shoulders
    Half-lined
    Smoked MOP buttons
