    I'm a tiny it smaller in the chest at 38", 5'9", 165lbs, and I'm happy with the large, it fits slim but not tight.

    I personally only wear point end, which is why I make them. They certainly cost more to produce than square end, though I don't pass the costs on to the customer. I'm subsidizing point end wearers all over the world. We are a movement.

    I think it's too long. Maybe you can try 0.25" shorter next time.

    Try sitting down first.

    Pointed > flat any day all day.

    Can anybody speak to the density of KW's knits vs HY?

    Looks great! Agree on the waist length recs, but still a great looking suit.

    I broke my Wang today. I was pulling KW cufflinks on and one of the pair just snapped, the link came right off the base. These were just a few months old, with little wear. Let's see if the firm's lifetime guarantee holds up.

    Go for it. You might want to try both, I am the same measurements, but am 6'0 and usually wear a M thought a L might give you a more relaxed look.

    And what size is that you are wearing? Nice accesories (notice the plural) on your left.

    Al-Did you get that collar curl by increasing the collar point length? It might be a bit too much for me, but I like it. It could also be the low camera angle that gives the looking up someones nose perspective. I would bring in the waist a bit more and think about bringing in the chest after a wash to reduce the folds.

    My next shirt will most likely be a spread collar, so perhaps I'll shorten .25".

    Did this shirt pass the sitdown test? It's much trimmer than my MTM.

    I think if I brought the chest, waist and hips in .5" it would be about there for what I prefer. I don't like the extremely slim look, and that photo from your site is a little too tight for my taste.

    Yeah, longer collar usually gives curl. I have had MTM shirts done before and each tailor has always recommended a higher collar band and longer collar points because I'm tall and have a long neck.

    Does anybody happen to know where KW's tie bars are made in? Thanks.

    Bangladesh. No, Wyoming. Or is it Peru? Perhaps the Amalfi Coast. No, no, it's Tibet. They are holy.

    I think they were the actual reason for the final crusade.

    Sounds like a solid order. I really liked the navy polo. The fabric has been slightly different between the white, grey, and navy but I am liking them all the navy and white may be my favorites so far. Looking forward to getting some rugby shirts like in maroon. Really like the looks of the white leaf PS, wear in good health.

    Are there any pictures of a 3-roll-2 with narrow lapels from Kent floating around? I'm a shorter guy and I'm considering a 3-2 or 3-2.5 as a way to kind of cheat and lower the button stance to make myself look taller. Plus I like that softer roll of the lapel. Not an option you see often on RTW suits so I've never tried one on.

    For those that have the brown cap-toe, are they being used strictly as office shoes? I already own the pair and wear it in the office, trying to figure out if I can ever wear them casually with jeans or if they are too sleek.
