    Fantastic Kent! I will follow-up through your store site to hopefully order a set of swatches as soon as they're in.

    Kent, are you planning on having any silk suit lining options?

    Has the sizing changed at all on restock for the benchgrade plaintoe balmorals? Should I order my true size (8D)?

    I have this question as well. I generally take a 10D, but for Allen Edmonds "5" last, I take a 9.5E. Do you plan on getting any more 10D in stock?

    You should order your true size now.

    I don't have any in 10 right now, but I think either 9.5 or 10.5 could work. The lasts are developed on EU sizes. But if you'll look at this conversion chart, 43=9 and 44=10.5, so that leaves the tricky question of what does 9.5 and 10 equal. I've made 43.5=9.5 so there's no 10 at the moment.

    I'm going to make a 43.75 in about six weeks to be 10, but 9.5 would only be slightly smaller and will probably work for most people looking for 10. Yeah, shoe size conversion is crazy.
    No, silk doesn't breathe well. We only use Bemberg linings at the moment, which breathe the best. I might add some fancy patterns later.

    I might try a 9.5 then. Is the sole leather? If so, do you recommend getting Vibram sole guards put on?

    FYI your picture on Tumblr with LabelKing is an SF collision of epic proportions. Asploded my mind.

    Love the suit! Sleeves may be a bit long on the shirt, but sleeve length is personal pref. to me...

    Nice going on the national TV coverage, Kent. That was quite a score.

    Received my mother of pearl smoke cuff links today. They are gorgeous.

    When I told my fiancee that he signed the note, she walked across the living room to check for herself.

    Thanks. For those that missed it: The Today Show. You can skip to the 2/3rds point if you don't want to watch Vanilla Ice—though I rather liked his segment.
