    I think this is the trial he has on.

    Which is why I commented that it looked so damn good out of the box.

    Pretty sure it's his MTM suit; if it was the trial suit, the trousers would be unhemmed.

    Thanks for the opinions, keep them coming! Yes, this is the final MTM suit, not the trial.

    I'd also do a mid-grey for the next suit.
    If you buy again from Kent, you might also ask for a little more taper to the ankle in addition to the extra length. I like the jacket.

    Oh OK. I was impressed with the idea that it was the trial.

    The suits pretty great. Consult Kent with any other changes. He's the man for it all, has an eye for it. The fact the pants were that short is weird though. Not sure how that happened.. did you specify an incorrect pant length?

    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?
