    I had a great blue/white stripe French cuff shirt from them several years back that I had to (sadly) get rid of when I lost weight. Non iron cotton, but it almost felt silky. Really miss it.

    Had you considered getting the shirt altered? I’m thinking about it but I can’t decide if I give enough of a F.

    For those of you waiting to see the @Kent Wang navy seersucker in full suit glory, here you are. For those of you considering having KW make one for you, the cloth is from Gladson.

    This is great. Is the jacket undarted?

    The issue was the neck- I went from a 16.5” to a 15” when I lost weight. I’ve gotten a lot (a LOT) of shirts slimmed up, but with how good Brooks Milano fit fits me OTR, I haven’t strayed all that much.

    That suit is badass.

    That’s pretty much a perfect setup IMO. Undarted, 3/2 roll, patch pockets, swelled edges. All you need is a hook vent and it’s a wrap.

    Yeah, it's too bad there isn't an easier way to alter the collar size on a shirt. I have a few that have the same problem that I'll probably end up getting rid of. Thanks, btw.

    Thanks. Yeah I wanted most of the classic Ivy details. The vents are a funny issue though. I was just talking with someone a couple days ago about how I always get side vents when I have the option. Even when everything else is old-school Ivy.

    YMMV, but I think that this would be more flattering if it were undarted.

    hehe, jk

    In all honesty, I really dig the suit.

    Really. So this jacket has double vents? There’s always double hook vents. Is that a thing?

    Double hook vents? Seems kinda pointless lol. Wasn’t the hook vents supposed to be a solution to the off-center openings of regular single vent jackets?

    I've been hiding from the oppressive heat for the past couple of weeks, but the last couple of days have brought some welcome relief.
