    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Nice, I think I might try my first suit from Kent with that fabric. Plan on ordering the trial tomorrow.

    Easy question but I can't remember the answer from prior dealings....if I just want the swatch books, do I have to pay to have them shipped to me?

    I don't think I had to pay shipping for swatch books last time I ordered, but I had to pay to ship them back. Actually, I didn't ship them to Kent, but to the next guy on the list who was waiting for the books.

    Any indication if the black, benchgrade captoes will be available anytime soon?

    Also, is this the "Medium Brown" option or is it a lighter shade that's not available?

    That is the med brown.

    Edit: Also, unless I am missing something, KW doesn't make black benchgrade captoes...

    ^ Yep, Kent has said before that he has no plans to offer black captoes. His site says a plaintoe balmoral is "the only black shoe you'll ever need", but I disagree. Oh well, certainly no shortage of black captoes on the market. :)

    Honestly, I don't really get the plaintoe. Personally, I think a black wholecut would sell a lot better. Even better if it had a fiddleback waist. Nice to know people think the benchgrade is the best deal though. Better than Meermin and comparable to C&J / Carmina.

    I also have one in the works with the 7124. Kent suggested it when I asked for a navy fabric that would go great with a pair of khakis or a pair of jeans.

    Are those 2 pairs of the dark brown, or is that a different shoe in the background?
