    I'm very impressed with my suit. The construction is much better than I expected, and the fabrics are (obviously) excellent. The standard cut was a bit aggressive for my taste, with a fairly short rise and jacket length. I requested minor adjustments for my MTM version, and it came out very well. There are a few things I will probably tweak for the next iteration, but it's already one of my favorite suits.

    One of the things I really like about these suits is that, at this price point, I'm not afraid to experiment in a way that I would never have the guts to with a 2k MTM suit.

    Kent,

    Two questions:

    Will you be getting new woolens for the fall?
    Have you considered getting a midnight navy mohair blend for tuxes? It's such a classic, and so hard to find, that I think people here would jump at it.

    Fall fabrics are here. It will take me a few weeks to photograph them but we can send the whole set of swatches to you. I'll need a $250 deposit, which will be refunded when the swatches are returned.
    The minimums for ordering fabric are quite high, and I'm not sure demand is truly high enough to meet that.

    FWIW Kent, I'd pick up a suit in a midnight blue wool/mohair blend in a heartbeat.

    I got my Kent Wang MTM suit the other day. Fit perfect out of the box, didn't need any alterations. Never had that happen ever in my life. Kent has a good eye for alterations. we got all the measurements done from taking a few pics from the try-on suit.

    construction and fabric are excellent for the price paid.

    Also love that Kent Wang squares are a little smaller. I find other pocket squares can be too bulky.

    I ordered a few button-down oxfords from them a few months back and really liked it. Great quality for the price.

    would definitely like to see more pics of completed suits...I'm in need of a standard navy and mid grey, and this MTM program seems like it's the best option out there. It's still kinda hard to commit tho because I've only seen pics that Spoo posted a while ago (looks great BTW) and the one pic on KW's website. I've never owned a full canvas suit and this should be a great place to start!

    I'm away on business, but when I get back I'll try to get some photos of myself in my KW.

    I'll Spoo it up as much as I can.

    I'd like to see more pics of the suits in action, too.

    And the new umbrellas look very nice! Almost makes me wish I hadn't bought that Davek recently...
