    All shirts in all sizes are now back in stock, including this popular linen/cotton stripe:

    Kent: Why no 16s in the linen cotton blends? Also: any pale blue linen/cotton blends coming down the pipe?

    Kent, I very much enjoy my shirts from you (best fit of any RTW shirt I can find anywhere), but the collar on the 16.5 is still a bit small for me as a bigger guy; any chance of a size 17 being added to the line anytime in the foreseeable (or possible) future?
    Sorry, I'm not doing any other sizes or custom sizes for the time being. But I am working on making a MTM service. Hopefully it'll be ready in six months.

    I don't make a 16, but do have 16.5 and 15.75. The linen/cotton are available in those sizes. I might do a solid pale blue for this upcoming spring/summer.

    Has anyone tried Kent's grenadine ties? Thinking of picking some up but I'd like to read a review first to assess quality, how well they tie a knot, etc.

    They are very nice, thick and plush. I wish I had more of them.

    I have one too. I love it, but I have to be extremely careful with it...I unfortunately got mine caught in the velcro of my book bag and it kinda jacked up the threads. I was, however, able to restore it with some gentle massaging of that portion of the tie.

    A lot of people have purchased them. Here's some pictures of me wearing the navy.

    Thanks, glad to hear it. You can expect an order from me soon, Kent.

    It is true. Unfortunately, there are no iGent-approved bags (that I'm aware of) which can adequately carry two large casebooks, a binder, several smaller books, and assorted other personal effects, I'm all ears.

    I'd like to make ginghams in other colors as well. Suggestions?

    I'd love a red gingham if possible.

    I just made my first purchase from Kent, and it should be no surprise that I'm very pleased. Not only were the PS and links very nice, but Kent's customer service is top-notch.

    Thanks, Kent!

    yes very nice grenadine ties...I now have one in navy and one burgundy. Just be aware (as mentioned above) that they make thicker FIH knots.

    This reminded me to check if the MOP cufflinks were in stock. They were, so I placed an order for a couple.
    I'm looking forward to when they arrive. If they turn out good, I plan to search for more items to buy through the Web site.

    Any idea when we can expect a Bohemian glass cuff link restock?

    Yeah, was asking about the other three (specifically the red style).
