    We have very few KW roped shoulder pics. Good to have one.

    Did someone mention that they were looking at green summer jacket options? If so, i'd love to see what Aaron came up with. Thanks

    I'm intrigued as well. Aaron informed me that my jacket should be en route, and assuming it fits well, I think my next pieces are a mid-grey VBC suit and a linen or linen blend green summer jacket.

    It was me, and Kent is helping me. He sent me actual image files that I cannot paste in this post. PM me an email address, and I will forward to you what he sent me.

    Yes sir [​IMG], on my mind.

    Thoughts:
    • 70% wool, 15% silk, 15% linen fabric from Drapers, 9 oz weight

    Drapers linen

    Advantages to a blend, but i might like the color of the linen IRL better. Hard to know for sure

    I emailed that very same NMWA picture to Kent. No luck thus far in finding anything similar, but I have a feeling that if enough of us ask, we will inspire KW to source something similar for Spring 2017.

    Do we know why he can't? Or the Italian mills known for being more difficult to obtain cloth from than their English counterparts?

    Edit: not a critique, but rather curiosity.

    I can't recall the name, but Kent has worked with a merchant with whom you can contact directly and can get a bunch of fabrics.

    Is it Merino Brothers? Kent told me he can get fabric from Harrisons and Huddleston.

    Merino brothers is a distributor, not a merchant. Cacipppoli would be a merchant. Merchants purchase from the original manufacturers, often branding under their own name, rather than the mills (who's names are not as well known - gladson, ariston, etc)

    I used Ariston for 2 of my 3 from my recent order. I signed up on their website and was able to view fabrics.

    The stroller suit is an ideal option for daytime weddings. More formal than a business suit, while still suitable for the day, unlike the tuxedo. The charcoal jacket and mid grey trousers can be worn as part of other outfits, so you’ll get a lot of wear for not a lot of money.

    Kent Wang charcoal jacket, TRG001 fabric, standard shoulder, standard lapel width
    Kent Wang double-breasted ivory vest, TR7147 fabric
    Kent Wang mid grey flannel trousers, TRV37 fabric
    Kent Wang white poplin shirt
    Kent Wang glen plaid tie
    Kent Wang white silk pocket square
    Kent Wang black pearl cuff links
    Kent Wang benchgrade plaintoe balmoral
    We should be able to source Drapers, just haven't done it before. Send us an email at mtm@kentwang.com and we'll figure it out.

    If it helps to have economy of sale, if you can source the Drapers wool/silk/linen shown above in green, I'll make it my next commission from you. Excited to receive my first jacket soon.

    Paging @WillingToLearn , please report to the KW thread. WTL and I have been corresponding about some amazing Drapers solid green fabrics for a Summer jacket. Having Kent source them would be significantly easier.

    Same here. Love that fabric.

    Kent, I'm your Chicago customer that you have been helping this week find a solid green jacket.

    Spring/Summer 2016 suit fabrics
    Gladson Spring/Summer 2016 - there's a lot of wool/silk/linen in here, but no solid dark green
    Drago Hopsack
    Italian Spring/Summer 2016 1
    Italian Spring/Summer 2016 2


    I'm in the process of contacting the Drapers distributor. I'm kind of getting hyped up about this dark green linen. I might even get one for myself. I already have 3 linen suits but I can't resist getting another.

    Merino Bros have Caccioppoli, and we can order through Merino Bros. Several wool/silk/linen, but none in dark green.

    I will be in London in late May, and would love to stop buy for tea, sencha, as well as to see you wonderful small items. How does a visit to your showroom work? I know it is by appointment only but are there any other considerations?

    There's some beautiful fabrics in Drapets Royal Cashmere I'd love to try. If you are able to source, any chance of getting bunches?

    Would get some Caccioppoli solaro as well.

    Great news.
