    Ahh, if only you were a little taller! The suit looks really great. Is 9.75" the standard rise for the 29 (or 30?) waist suit trousers?

    No. It's been increased by 3cm. It's probably around ~10in by most ways of measuring. I measured from crotch seam to waist.

    Quick question for Kent: how's the pattern matching on the glen plaids, windowpanes, etc?

    ^ Looking good. Did you order the charcoal trial suit first?

    I'm really liking the navy windowpane fabric on offer but can't justify paying an extra $120 at least for getting the suit shipped to me, shipping it back just so I can get measurements and then paying shipping on the MTM suit.

    suit looks really good, what fabric is that? I just confirmed all my measurements and options, and I'm waiting on a set of fabric swatches to get here. Once I get the swatches (hopefully by the end of this week), I'll finalize my order for my first suit with Kent.

    Seems to be a bit more cuff showing on one side than the other, but otherwise looks excellent. Very impressive for a cross-border MTM product.

    yywwyy, is that a 3-2 roll? It's hard to tell from the photo, but I suspect it is.

    Wasn't someone going to put up some fit pics around now? I'm getting increasingly curious as to what others are working out with Kent Wang MtM!

    I've made around 50 suits so far. Everyone has been satisfied. Most are staple charcoal and navy suits, not too exciting to see.

    Canadian and Australian customers: I have suits with 36 jacket and 30 trouser in both countries. Now would be a good time to order as you'll be able to avoid the vicissitudes of international shipping and potential customs and tax.
