    Seems reasonable, but I would consider leaving the cuff width as is if you ever wear double cuffs. That's also a lot off the back length for me, but I'm guessing you want to play with the balance a bit, right? The only suggestion I'd make is to lessen the trouser taper from the knee down so that you can go a little longer without introducing more break.

    There's a navy that a few people have gotten here and really liked. It's a little lighter, and if I remember correctly, really brightens up in the sun. Anyone remember the fabric number? Thanks

    Thanks, Beatle. I emailed Kent about it. The fabric doesn't show on the website, but hopefully it's still around.

    It is. It's one of the base level A fabrics. Just saw it as an option in May.

    I know prob best to just contact Kent but has the brown herringbone ever been restocked in size 38? Looks like a good odd jacket to have.

    Kent, ever thought about making your ties in a shorter length? At 5'7.5", my navy grenadine is just too long (although I like it a lot). Maybe a 53" version to add to the 57" / and 62" options?

    Regretfully, my mom purchased the wrong size polo for me as a gift. I wear a Medium, but she ordered a small. I didn't even think to check the tag before laundering it. (A silly mistake.) When I tried it on I noticed the error. So...it is now listed on B&S for any interested.

    Anyone have any info on sizing for Kent Wang's shoes? It says industry standard, but I was wondering if anyone could compare it to say, a standard with AE Park Ave / Fifth Ave / Strand? If I wear a 10.5D in those, should I get a 10.5 in Kent's shoes? In particular I'm wondering about the Single Monkstrap.

    I have the single monkstrap, the double monkstrap, and the brogue in size 7 and I'm size 7D in AE strand. The instep is a bit higher so you won't see as wide of a V shape in the laces as you do with the AE. The toe of the KW are more elongated but I feel comfortable in both. Great return policy so I'd say give it a shot.

    I'm a 11 in KW plain toe balmoral, and a 10.5 in AE McTavish. Obviously, KW's last is sleeker, but I feel confortable in both.

    I am a 10D Brannock and in the Strand, wear a 10D for both the brown captoes and the med brown loafers. Captoes have more room in toe box than loafers do, so I find is slightly better fitting of the two.

    @yywwyy , I'm struggling with the patch pockets on a suit that is very city. I just got the same suit by the way and am not sure yet what I think of the wide lapels. I wish they were about 0.5 cm more narrow.

    Looks good.

    Part of me wants to try the bigger lapels on a sportcoat, but I'm afraid as a 38R/39R it will make me feel like I am swimming in fabric.
