    Got my new suit today.

    Ho
    Lee
    Shit

    This fabric is amazing, and the fit is very good too. Still need to make a few small tweaks, but overall it is definitely better than my first suit out of the box. One strange thing I noticed is that the shoulders feel a little more unconstructed on this jacket compared to my first suit, even though I picked th same options. I'm fine with it as I like the shoulders on this one better. No pics yet as I have no good natural light left today, but I will try and snap some tomorrow.

    I actually just threw on the jacket after work, and hadn't even tried on the pants till just now. They are 100% perfect, zero alterations needed. The only thing I'm getting done on the jacket is a tad more waist suppression and maybe slimming the sleeves just a bit. Everything else is good as is. I'm actually going to try and drop everything off with the tailor during my lunch break tomorrow.

    I didn't see it, but does Kent/has he ever offered tweed jackets?

    Quote:Kent does CMT, so you can buy your own fabric and ship it to the factory to have the suit made. You should check with him if there are any limitations on the weight of the cloth.

    I think I've seen some tweed options in some of the F/W swatch books - check the links on his site for pics of all the books.

    There will be some tweeds in the fall/winter fabrics, which will be available in August.

    Pretty excited for this.

    Is tweed generally cheaper or same price as normal wool jackets?

    beatlegeuse, would really be interested in seeing pics. post them whenever you get a chance. your KW navy suit was fantastic and was the nudge i needed to get a KW suit.

    If anyone leans severely to the left in real life, this is what you could look like in a KW suit.

    Holy crap that suit looks great. I think I may have to take the plunge on KW.
