    Looks pretty clean to me. Maybe a tiny bit more room in the waist, otherwise, I can't find anything that looks off. Do you find the fit uncomfortable?

    In my limited experience with suits, this seems to be a pretty good fit. The chest pieces lay fairly flat, the buttons don't pull, the shoulder does not show any odd divots, and button stance seem to be pretty good. The length of sleeve and jacket is fairly good, the neck does seem a little high and the collar can be dropped to fix this. Is it the style that you don't like or there is some discomfort with wearing it? I've found with full canvass suits, it helps to wear it and dry clean it a few times, and the fit will conform to your body a little better.

    You mentioned English Mills, I assume it's Huddersfield you referring to? What do you think of their 120s 4 season fabrics compared to the VBC 130s 4 season fabrics? I don't have a lot of experience with fabrics in general and certainly none with English Mills, so any insight would be appreciated it!

    lightnnj that jacket looks good, aside from the above mentioned buttoning pout (which can be altered) and left sleeve pitch (which is hard to say given your arm placement). I don't exactly know what you mean by "high neck" but the shirt that you're wearing in the photo appears to have a very limp collar which clearly doesn't pair with the suit. If that's a look you're going for then KW may. It be right for you, but I'd agree with Aaron based off of the pics provided.

    Are there any plans to do another trunk show on the west coast?

    Around April 30. Email sales@kentwang.com and we'll let you know when they're in.

    Around March 19. Email sales@kentwang.com and we'll let you know when they're in.

    I'm afraid not. Now that I live in London, it's hard to do trunk shows in the US.

    I lowered the buttoning point on my most recent order by 1.5 cm and converted to the 3 roll 2 option. It made a world of difference in making the wide lapels look more proportional. I'll try and get some pictures up in the next week or so.

    @venividivicibj

    Very nice sir. My local tailor uses the same factory as Kent Wang but I have not been able to really find any real world examples of the "wide" lapel option. You can imagine it's not exactly a very popular choice here in conservative Chicago. Do you mind telling me how tall you are? Thanks

    Thank you sir. I'm also 6 foot but with a 38L/39L jacket. I'm happy there's a visual now.

    39-->42 isnt that much of a visual width difference, only 1" total, so wide wouldnt look ridiculous by any means
