    My new custom ordered Ring Jacket corduroy suit arrived yesterday at Khakis Carmel. Jim helped me select a mossy green Italian cotton from the Zegna book. I had it made up with a 3-2 roll, patch pockets, 3/4 lining. The fabric is very nice and soft. I especially like it's earthy, mossy color rather than the typical brighter, cleaner bottle greens you usually see. The corduroy also has 3% Elastan which gives it a softer feel and just a bit of stretch for easy comfort. It actually feels like a cotton/cashmere mix.This will be ideal for Fall/Winter as a suit or separates.

    Visited Khakis this week to get my corduroy Ring Jacket suit tailored and to beat the heat of triple digits here in the East Bay. (Carmel was a oh-so-comfortable 68 degrees. Much better than 104 in my town).

    While there I picked up my custom W Kleinberg Hornback Alligator belt. Kleinberg makes the best and Khakis has tons of leather samples including exotic skins from which you can order your dream belt. Here is mine in what they call Chocolate with a matt finish.

    I need a custom Ring sport coat. @Murlsquirl and @justinkapur great choices as usual. You guys are serious enablers.

    @GusW

    Love the cord suit!

    Ring Jacket corduroy suit arrived after being altered for cuffs. Having fun playing around with some of my ties, pocket squares, shoes. Will post a fit pic once the temp gets cool here in the East Bay.


    The ties are both Seaward & Stearn, shoes by EG. All from Khakis.

    Could you provide sleeve length measurements also?

    Jacket looks great. Was your size "true to size" for this brand?

    Is Khaki's of Carmel's F/W 2015 Ring Jacket collection online? Most of the Ring that shows up looks like it's from previous seasons.

    I sized up from a Euro 52 to a 54 their largest size. Unless you are very thin you probably need to size up.

    I was down there 3 weeks ago and didn't see any of the new Fall/Winter 2015 suits or jackets. But Jim said they will have a trunk show in San Francisco on September 28 with exclusive fabrics and new F/W so it must be rolling in now or anytime. Give them a call. Mr Sasamoto, from Ring Jacket, will be at the trunk show as well.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I have never owned a Ring Jacket before, but am looking at one Carmel's Ring jacket suits on sale online. Since Carmel doesn't accept returns for Sale items, I'm nervous to pull the trigger. If at all possible, I'd appreciate if you could let me know what the measurements of the 54R were and what is typical for you. My measurements:

    I'm 6'0", 185 lbs.
    Best fitting sport coats have the following measurements:

    Chest 43" (21'5" from pit-to-pit across front)
    Shoulder 18.25" (across back, seam to seam)
    Length 29.5" (from bottom of collar)
    Jacket Waist 40"

    Rather than give you measurements of a jacket I own (all of which have been tailored) , I suggest that you call them and ask one of their SA's to measure the exact jacket that you are interested in. Jacket fit can vary with any company to some degree due to the fabric. Khakis SA's are very helpful on the phone.
