Kent Wang slim fit shirts. NEW: cotton poplin, French and button cuff - Page 4

post #46 of 71
Just received the shirts I ordered and I must say that I am very impressed with the construction. The fit is slim. I am a very slim guy and the size 15 is borderline too slim, but I will stick with it. I would love to see the 100% cotton barrel and french cuff shirts in blue and pink as well. Overall: very impressed with the communication, service and, most importantly, the product!

A second for wanting to see the button cuff shirts in blue and pink. I understand the pink, at least, may be coming shortly. Looking forward to it.

Received my Cotton/Linen shirt today. The pics do not show the fabric's texture at all. Kent, I wish you could capture it--it is very nice.

Thank you.

I can't edit the first post anymore because it has gone over the 3 month or so time limit. Here are some new products: Cotton poplin Blue 120's. Button cuff. $105. Blue 120's. French cuff. $105. 100% cotton poplin is the most basic fabric suitable for all occasions. Both shirts are the same color; the second photo is a more accurate representation of the color. Premium linen/cotton Pink. Button cuff. $125. 15.75 sold out. Only 15 and 16.5 remaining. This is a limited run of less than 10 shirts. Premium Italian fabric with a very smooth hand and a beautiful, subtly slubby appearance. Click on the photo to zoom in to see this.

I'm sold out of the premium pink linen/cotton in 16.5. As we only have a limited amount of this fabric we won't be able to produce any more than what we have. There are only two shirts left in 15 and 15.75.

Looks like we have just a little bit of extra fabric in the premium pink linen/cotton so we have one last one in 16.5, and 2 each in 15 and 15.75.

Kent - your shirts are beautiful. I desperately want to order one but know that I am sadly in-between sizes. Have you any plans to make a 15.5?

If I am L in BoO do I get 16 here?

Same question. Why only 15.75? Isn't 15.5 more common?

Kent - have you started offering 14.5" yet?

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.



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.

See: thread on linen/cotton shirts

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:

Just curious, Kent. How would you classify the collars on these? Point? Medium spread?
post #59 of 71
Any way to custom roll a 16.5 with an extra inch of sleeve length? Not to put you in the custom business or anything. Perhaps an extra charge to get the longer sleeve? Thanks.

15.75 fits nicely right between 15 and 16.5.

Good progress is being made on this size! Maybe in six weeks.

Sorry, I can't accommodate this at this time. I plan to offer a full MTM service but it is a ways off. Maybe by the end of the year.
