    Here's a pic of me in it right out of the box. It's what I am wearing in my wedding in June. I would call it medium to dark grey.

    Disregard the under-clothing. I got the suit and couldn't wait to get a fit pic.

    Nicely done!

    Definitely, going to need to request a swatch book when I rotate back stateside, it's hard to get a good feel from a monitor.

    I will post a pic of the finished product when my groomsmen and I are back from the tailor.

    Very, very happy with my Kent Wang balmorals that I won in the charity auction. Will post a pic eventually.

    It's the soft shoulder option. I may get a summer navy sport coat, and I think i'll go with the unconstructed shoulder option.

    Just so I'm clear: this is the end result of the MTM process and you are just going to your tailor's for a few final nips and tucks?

    Correct. If it even needs anything. the waist may need to come in ever so slightly.

    The pants need to be finished as well as being taken in at the waist slightly.

    Thanks for the pic! I'm a fan of that shade. I think it looks quite a bit lighter than the swatch pic. I'll need to check with Kent to see if he plans to bring his entire swatch book to the trunk show or if I should pick out those I'm interested in for him to bring along. Now I need to look into the pinstripe options...

    Last night I used the UD code and a gift code I got for xmas. I ordered the maroon pindot tie, the pearl cufflinks (my fiance liked those, they will be worn at my wedding) and a shirt for the MTM process. I placed the order around 8:30PM and got a shipping notice about 20 minutes later.

    Excellent service.

    Does the 2 day shipping apply to the RTW charcoal suit or does that typically take longer? And what is the typical turnaround from initial purchase to receiving the RTW to receiving the finished product?

    for the charcoal RTW suit, it depends if he has it in stock or not. A lot of times, customers will ship the trial suit to and from each other as new requests come in. Send Kent an email to check if he has your size in hand. The full MTM suit can probably be completed in less than a month if you know what you want (fabrics, measurement adjustments, features, etc.).

    Can anyone who's had experience with the sneakers recommend sizing up or down for half sizes?

    I recommend sizing up: I approximate most closely to a US9 in dress shoes (though sz 10 in sneaks is fairly common for me). I tried Kent's sneaks in 9 and found them a bit too tight, and am now awaiting an exchange for 10s when they come along. Nice sneakers: I love the simple and clean look.

    Hi Kent,

    I'm digging the polos. From which mill(s) is the fabric sourced? Thanks!

    Thank you all for a great year. In 2012, I added suits, original design pocket squares, a watch, umbrellas, and many more items. The watch, pocket squares, and umbrellas were in particular big gambles that I pursued simply because I wanted them for myself—gambles that have paid off, much to my surprise. 2013 will involve more gambles, obscure things you didn't even know you needed—and, of course, basics too.

    Thomas Mason.

    Just kidding. I don't know. No one ever talks about the source of cotton knits. It's a pretty commidified market. We source from a variety of mills, and some colors we dye to my specifications.

    Maybe six weeks, maybe just a few days.

    Yes, you can order in stock and backordered items at the same time and we can ship the in stock items first, or hold them and ship together. Up to you.

    The size is written on the product page. These are intended to be more subtle, like buttons.

    Maybe next autumn.

    Just ordered the trial suit in 36R and will have a custom navy suit made off of the measurements. I will update and post pictures.
