If it were me, even though they will wrinkle when I start to wear them, I would exchange them for a new pair.

How do Kent Wang shoes compare to say, Carmina, in terms of quality?

post #3724 of 4528
Can't speak for the benchgrades but the DC Lewis handgrades are better. The calf is more supple and takes a shine well. The soles are actually more durable, my leather souled Carminas are even a little younger than my KWs but are far more worn. Kent's are also manufactured and finished to a higher quality. I really dig what Carmina has to offer, but it's no contest in terms of raw quality. You're just more limited in the styles available with the Kent Wang shoes so it's a toss up depending on the shoe you want.

Kent said earlier in the thread that the hand grades should be on par with Lobb and EG

Do you generally just match it with your button down shirt, or do you base it upon the color of your suit?

You already got some decent answers here but I will throw in a bit more. The best place to start is with basics. So just as you're starting w/ a navy and charcoal suit you should start with similarly basic pocket squares as they are often the most versatile. As you may already know, white linen is the best place to start. It looks good almost all the time, especially with classic charcoal and navy suits. Kent is an advocate of the subtle paisley print white square, and while I have never seen it in real life, Kent is no slouch when it comes to dressing so that might be a good substitute if you find plain white linen too boring. Next, I would say white linen with a navy / dark blue edge. Beyond that, people have given decent advice and there are also entire threads dedicated to this. My one word of advice would be to avoid red pockets squares. I just don't think they ever look good.

EDIT: I meant leaf as indicated below. Not paisley. Sorry for any confusion.

I wear my KW white leaf PS 10x more than any other that I own.  It's perfectly conservative but on closer inspection has some flair.

Is there anyone who owns Kent's belt willing to post some pictures. I'm interested but I'm having a hard time picturing what it looks like from the website photos. It almost seems like a cross between a dress belt and a casual belt.

Anyone have pictures of the grey sneaker in the wild? Checked the pictures in this thread but only saw one pic of the whites.

edit: Should I forget about it if I've got a wide-ish foot and a high instep?

From Kent's NY Trunk Show. Apologies for the crappy cell phone photo. I'm not a sneaker guy but they look nice.

I'm a 7 in Kent's bench grade, but had to size up to the 8 in the sneakers. The 7 was too tight all around.

I have one of his belts. It can go dress or casual, though I generally prefer my casual belts slightly less thick. Nevertheless, IMHO it's a very nice quality belt that will last a long time.

Thanks for the info. That's kind of what I suspected. I'm looking for strictly a dress belt and don't really want anything too thick so I think I'll pass. Have no doubt it's great quality though. Everything I've bought from Kent has been really nice.
