    Anyone have any lining and button suggestions for a navy suit?

    I do navy lining with Navy. I think it looks best that way. Do horn black or horn dark brown buttons.

    It's personal preference. I went dark brown horn with brown lining.

    Umbrellas are back in stock, with two new whangee umbrellas.

    If anyone is interested in how the measurement consultation works, these were my recommendations, with accompanying explanations:

    • Your shoulders are square (as opposed to sloping) so we'll raise the angle of the shoulders +2 cm
    • You could also consider switching to the soft shoulder padding so they don't look as prominent
    • The shoulders also look a hair too wide, so -0.5 cm
    • Back chest (across the armpits) is loose, so -1.5 cm
    • Waist looks ok in the back. Does it feel loose?
    • Assuming the side photos are the natural way you hang your arms, then we'll adjust the sleeve pitch backward 1 cm
    • Sleeve length -2 cm
    • Button stance -1.5 cm lower, should be at the narrowest part of your waist

    I'm thinking about getting a couple of rugby shirts. I'm a 38R. Is the recommendation still to go with an L?

    I just received one of his belts in medium brown. I'd say that medium is probably a better match to the AE walnut color. BTW, it's a very nice belt. Good quality leather.

    If they are the same pattern as the polos you probably want medium.

    Received the grenadine purple tie, couple pocket squares, and a rugby over the weekend. Had to return the rugby (fit wasn't right for me) but LOVE the tie and pocket squares.

    Also, FWIW, the customer service has been great: fast shipping, immediate repsonses to my questions, etc.... Will be ordering again soon.

    Just saw Kent's watch featured on the watch blog Hodinkee. It's a fairly complimentary profile and a rare one for Hodinkee (to my knowledge, this is the first watch they've talked about that is under $1,000 . . . at least in the year or so I've been reading).

    Congrats, Kent!

    What kind of styles of waistcoats are available Kent? Would it be possible have one made in a double-breast configuration? Or perhaps just lower buttoning point to reveal more of the chest and tie?

    Canadian customers: I have a suit with a 36 jacket and 32 trousers en route. 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.
    We don't do discounts or sales as I think it's better to have one low price at all times, without silly games.
    The suit options form lists three options: 5 button; 6 button; Notch lapel, 4 button. So no double-breasted. The 5 button is lower than the 6 button.

    I was really impressed with the consult above. As my posts indicate, I was somewhat unsure of the process going in. After I received the jacket and consulted with Kent, I was immediately impressed with his service. I plan to pick up a few additional items from Kent in the future. I'll report back after receiving the RTW trousers in a week or so.

    Just ordered my second KW MTM suit. This one I will be wearing in my wedding! I just got engaged last Friday and my first plan of action was to order a KW suit. Next plan of action is a Hober wedding tie.

    I will, of course, post pictures when the final suit arrives.
