    What a bold check. You're braver than me.

    Interesting, didn't know that was an option. It certainly gives the jacket some character

    Hi guys, just wanted to check in as I will be helping out Kent with some things. You can catch me here or on our social media channels. Feel free to shoot me any questions if you like. :cheers:


    I'll share one of my favorite pics, by our very own @Caustic Man, showing off the Le Neptune Francois pocket square.

    @[email protected] thanks. That's one of my favorite pocket squares!

    It's not on the options form, you have to ask for it. 6mm pick stitching is one of my favorite options not on the form, as well. Gives the jacket a swelled edge look. Talk to Aaron (or Jesse, I imagine) about the unlisted options if you're up for it.

    The 6mm pick stitching looks awesome, certainly a fantastic choice. I'm still learning about the MTM program myself and Aaron will still be the best point of contact. He's actually working with another new hire named Zach, so those guys will take care of any specifics. I'll be happy to find out answers to any inquiries though since it will help me out as well.

    Just thought I would chime in with the results of my visit to the NYC location. I had a great time, Aaron was very helpful, informative, and polite. Unfortunately I didn't fit the trail suit / template very well, but the fabric selection was wonderful. I guess I'll have to put off a Kent Wang suit for a year or two. I picked up a lovely silk/linen tie, one of the ancient madder pocket squares, and a set of mother of peal cuff links which all were wonderful to see in person. I would definitely recommend anyone who favors the Kent Wang haberdashery to give it a try at least once.

    Edit: I heard word that they may be expanding the sizes offered for suits. I think they can fit a waist up to 40" currently.

    Can anyone comment on the sizing for the Handgrade White Sneakers? (http://www.kentwang.com/shoes/sneakers/sneaker-white.html) I notice they only come in whole sizes and I usually wear a 9.5 in most Allen Edmonds models, for instance. Any advice on what size to get? If this has been discussed before I'm happy to be directed to previous comments.

    Would you say your feet are TTS 9.5? I know most AE shoes fit that way but some require sizing down (ie the 5 last for some people).

    I would say TTS, since almost all of my Allen Edmonds are 9.5 D.

    Ok, I think if you plan on wearing thin socks and feel you may have slightly narrow feet you may be able to get away with a 9. If you think you'll reach for more casual socks go with 10.

    For those interested, here's my new overcoat. Made it up in Abraham Moon cavalry twill overcoating.

    Overcoat would be insanely impractical for me, but that looks mighty fine :cheers:
