    Would you care to elaborate? I've been thinking of buying the polos for some time, but I need a quite tapered fit.

    I am 5' 10" and about 155 lbs. I wear a 38 jacket and have a 32/33 waist. I ordered the medium but found it a bit too tight across the waist and in the lower arms. I considered keeping it, but then decided KW has too many ties and other things that I want. So I return it.

    Thanks. I wear a 40R jacket but only 31 waist, so maybe the medium would fit me. How was the chest on yours?

    Kent, your Chrysler Building tieclip is smart and rarefied. Accessories like these remind me of why I like KW.

    Hi guys, what is the average shipping time to Canada (Ontario)? Just curious what you're times have been like.

    After all the research and rationalization (basically telling myself that it's ok to drop some $$ to buy some nice ties) I've finally decided to get 3 ties from KW, navy and green grenadine ties, a bi-colour knit tie (brown and navy), and a lapel flower. Didn't come cheap, but I'm looking forward to receive them in the next few days. An early Christmas present for myself. :D

    Edit: For knit tie I actually prefer a pointed end, that's just me.

    I've had my eye on KW grenadines since they're half the cost of the Drake's ones on Mr. Porter and I want to buy 3 or 4 ties, which I won't do at $150 apiece. The linen burgundy also looks great.

    How do I go about doing this - ordering through the website?

    Let me know what you think of the Navy Grenadine, about time I bit the bullet and got it.
    Been looking at it for a whole year...

    Mr. Porter's price for ties is insane...its less expensive to order directly from Drake's website.

    I just got my first KW tie, the navy grenadine, a little over 2 months ago. It is stunning in person. I saw that a couple people had mentioned due to the thickness they had difficulty getting a good knot out of it, but for me a single FIH produced a perfect knot/tie length. Highly recommend.
