    Pattern matching is perfect on my POW suit, at least.

    I have 7089 and I love it. If you already have a standard dark navy suit and you wanted something a but lighter, this may or may not work for you. I'm on my phone now so I can't repost the pics here, but if you scroll back a few weeks you should see them. The fabric looks like a pretty standard navy indoors (not too dark), but outside in the sunlight the color really pops. I think Kent described it a while ago as not being quite appropriate for an outdoor funeral, due to the brightness of the color.

    I'm considering another suit and I might opt for the wide lapels this time, the thing is that I wear a small size on my suit (appr. 38 US) and I don't want the lapels to stand out too much. Would appreciate any advice and/or thought.

    Kind regards,

    Personally I don't think wide lapels would look too big on a 38 - my suit with wide lapels is close to the size 40 trial suit, and it works perfectly for me.

    My 38L with Wide Lapels. I'm growing to like it but I want a standard lapel navy with white horn buttons pretty soon here.

    eta: I actually may get the wide lapels on my future brown houndstooth sports coat.. I just dropped $1200 or so on shoes this month so unfortunately it will have to wait. But I'm so excited to order it.

    I tossed out my old PRL polos a while ago and am looking to pick up some new ones for the summer. The KW ones look superb. Anyone a 38R in sportcoats care to comment on polo sizing and fit? The size chart suggests a L in polos.

    Thanks. It's good to hear that the basic fabrics are nice as well. In your photo, it looks bluer than the swatch in the look book.

    Yeah I had the swatch book as well with that fabric, and I thought it looked pretty dark too. In my limited experience, it seems most swatches look a bit darker compared to how they eventually look when made up into a full suit.

    I wear a 38R and prefer the Mediums. There is a pic of me in one several pages back, I've reattached. They are pretty much the only Polos I like to wear anymore (someone liked my white one so much they stole it at a resort pool) I have quite a few now, need to try out the rugby ones. I am 6'0 and 170'ish. A large may be a more relaxed look for you.

    Thanks Moloch38, that looks like a great fit on you, I think it should work well for me too.

    Does anyone have pics of a KW suit with hacking pockets, or peak lapels?

    I'm thinking of getting an FU SC with hacking pockets, maybe a brown or tan guncheck.
