Kent Wang slim fit shirts. NEW: cotton poplin, French and button cuff

post #1 of 71
Thread Starter 
Following our collaboration with Thick as Thieves on an OCBD shirt, we are now offering shirts entirely of our own design.

Cotton poplin


White 100's. Button cuff. $105.


White 120's. French cuff. $115.

100% cotton poplin is the most basic fabric suitable for all occasions.

Linen/cotton


White. Button cuff. $105.

Linen/cotton is the ideal fabric for warm weather. It is actually cooler than pure linen.

I like it for certain things, but linen-cotton is better as a dress fabric, and better on the brutally hot days.

Linen/cotton also lacks the slubs and wrinkle-prone nature of linen and is appropriate for wear with a suit, as it looks just like pure cotton. It is equally suited to casual wear: take the collar stays out and roll the sleeves up and wear untucked.

It is also suitable for year-round wear as you can just wear an undershirt or more layers for warmth.

Features


Collar shape, when worn with a Kent Wang six-fold grenadine tie.

All shirts feature the same premium MOP buttons as on our OCBD shirts.

Reviews of my other shirts have all been positive:

Construction, fabric, and detailing are superior to similarly-priced shirts. I would say this is on par with shirts in the $200-$250 range (Robert Talbott, Zegna).

I believe the actual construction on the shirt is equivalent to RLPL. One specific area that appears to be superior to most every shirt I have seen are the buttons.

I have one of the prototype linen-cotton shirts and I love the fabric. It has the interesting texture of oxford cloth or linen, but it's crisp enough to be a proper dress shirt and also very lightweight. Plus, Kent's shirts are very well made - I have 4 of his shirts now and they're among my favorites.

Really hope I can put together the $ over the next week and grab one before they sell out in my size. I have bought every colour Kent has made so far and intend to continue doing so as long as he keeps making them. I suggest others do likewise. The product is spectacular.

do you have a return policy? I believe I am a 15 but I'm not sure if the waist will be too tight.
post #5 of 71
Perhaps I'm thick, but it's unclear to me whether the white shirt is available right now, or not. When I go to the website no shirts at all are on there. I could email or call Kent, but thought maybe I'm not the only one who is uncertain about this?

^Just use the order form and clearly set out what you want and what size.
post #7 of 71
Kent, looks like exactly what i've been looking for. Though, I would like to see a picture of the shirt with a tie if you can.
post #8 of 71
anyone have a fit pic?
post #9 of 71
There's quite a few in that other thread and the measurements are the same. That said, I do want to see what the collar looks like on a person.
post #10 of 71
+1 on request for pics of collar, worn.
post #11 of 71

This is me wearing the size 15, which is a little small on me (I'm in between sizes and make my own shirts MTM). But it should be a fairly accurate representation of the collar. Featuring a Kent Wang six-fold grenadine tie.

We can offer returns for sizing issues, if unworn (for more than a few minutes) and unwashed. But please look at the measurements carefully and measure against your best fitting shirt.

They're not on the website, but just mention what shirt you want, what color on the order form.

We're planning on overhauling the website and that will have all of our products, including shirts and ties, all in one place.

Any chance you'll be making these in a smaller size in the future?

Check out my fit pics on the other thread. I am a 15: chest 37, waist 31, 5'7" 140ish lbs, and enjoy walks on the beach.

if i size up to the 15.75 to fit my neck, the rest won't fit as it will be too big, such is life :\\
