    Kent, I just received my navy polo in M, and the fabric feels very different compared to the grey polo I ordered a few weeks ago. Is it a different type of material?

    Different how? I'm going to order a polo soon, and am actually deciding between those two colors.

    The navy doesn't feel quite as soft as the grey does. The fabric seems stiffer too. Perhaps because the gray is heathered? I'm not sure...

    Heathered fabrics often have a different hand than solid fabrics.

    The tie on the far left is Kent's Blue/Brown bi-color knit tie, its very 3-D and I can't wait to wear it.

    Yes, Burgundy Grenadine Grossa. My wife bought the Grenadine and Drake's Cashmere Check next to it on Mr. Porter a couple weeks ago when they were having their 50% off sale.

    The fabrics are from different mills. The navy is a bit thicker, grey is thinner but softer.
    I can't really tell from the photo, but I haven't noticed this on my rugbys and I wear my burnt orange one all the time. Maybe you just need to wash it once and it'll soften up a bit.

    Indeed, it is no longer available as the mill is no longer making that color. I'm working on finding an alternative.

    Just got in a satin bow tie for my wedding and 5 pairs of MOP cuff links that I got for my groomsman. Everything looks great. The bow tie has a great feel to it and knots well. Also, the shipping time was exceptional.

    Ordered 3 grenadine ties on Boxing Day and they just arrived today. Pretty fast shipping!

    The ties are great, by the way!

    I only hang dry, and in my experience shrinkage has been unnoticeable. I think some customers that have machine dried have reported about half an inch in all dimensions, maybe one inch in the length.

    Kent Wang silk pocket square
    Kent Wang burgundy grenadine tie
    Kent Wang silver tie clip
    Dunhill corduroy trousers

    The hat is just a beanie or tulque type, which is quite common; it's just made of rabbit fur.
