    When you purchase a garment from KW that doesn't fit well, KW mentions you can send it back and have the garment made to your specified measurements. I'm assuming this would incur an added MTM fee correct?

    He means a RTW. You can't send back a MTM.

    Yes I understand that, thanks. But his RTW jackets state: "but if it doesn't fit you perfectly, return it and we'll make you a new custom jacket."

    So if a RTW jacket cost $495 and it doesn't fit "perfectly" can one return for a custom jacket for the same price or would a MTM upcharge be incurred? That's my question.

    As I understand, the $495 gets applied to the MTM price.

    If the RTW doesn't fit you, they will use it as the basis for your MTM order. This works extremely well in my experience if the RTW is close to a good fit, but you want to tweak some aspects of it. From what I've seen, I think the worst you could do will still be acceptable, in contrast to what I've seen from MTM outfits that work solely on measurements.

    Clear acetate keyhole sunglasses $55, also available in black and tortoiseshell
    The keyhole design is a classic shape, named after the keyhole-shaped gap between the bridge and nosepads.
    While most eyewear frames are made of plastic and have a seam all around the edges from the injection mold, our sunglasses are made from blocks of cellulose acetate that are carved into their final shape. This process gives the frames greater flexibility, durability, and clarity.


    Yes, you would pay the MTM price, which is a little higher.

    I really like the VBC flannels. The textured look is great, and being a worsted, it wears no warmer than any of the other

    I just got a pair of the tortoise sunglasses yesterday and they are an absolute steal. Stylish and very, very high quality.

    Do you have these prices listed anywhere based on fabric category? I'm considering a trial suit, but I'm a 42S and I know I'll need to have some adjustments made for the length, even if everything else is perfect. Not knowing the price of the garment I'll eventually have to pay for is a bit concerning.

    On that note, can pocket position be adjusted for individuals like me who are going to need a couple of inches shortened?

    Ah, thank you. I had read through that page a few times but always stopped at the fabric links, thinking there was nothing else of interest.

    Trigger pulled on the green Gladson Alazar wool/silk/linen. Can't wait to have this for the hot days of summer. Anyone else from Team Green ordered theirs yet?

    Howdy sir. Did you already take delivery of these? I'm curious to see more images of the wide lapel in the wild.
