@barims wearing new prototype sunglasses, and my View of Edo wall print. Of all the art I have hanging on my walls, this is by far my favorite. There is so much detail in it, I can stare at it for hours.

 

If you want to buy a print of this or Shinagawa, Shah Jahan shamsa, or Le Neptune Francois, email sales@kentwang.com

 

 

I don't know how you do it, but you have an uncanny gift in selecting square designs. E-mail incoming regarding those prints....

Great post, this is much appreciated. Any polos in the NYC showroom?

Yes, there's a full range of polos to try on to determine your size.

Any experiences in here with KW suits? I'm quite awkward to fit & think I'd really benefit from trying out MTM and as I'm in the UK there really doesn't seem to be anything that can match KW's price point for this, particularly as I can go & visit them down in London.

Yes - This whole thread has experiences, many of them quite positive.

SamF, I was shown the suits and fabrics when I visited KW in NYC, and they had canvased/structured suits and unstructured, both of which looked quite good. There are definitely a lot of fabric choices.

Awesome - was just wondering if there was anyone about who might light to speak about them. 300 odd pages is a lot to go through.

Yeah the fabric choice looks impressive. Reckon my best bet is probably just to make an appointment to visit them in London & have a chat. Failing anything else I can always pick up a tie or some pocket squares. On the tie note: how are KW knits? Are they the dry, crunchy or the softer, smoother type?

post #5063 of 5900

SamF, I have bought exclusively knit ties from KW and just went in my closet to fondle them for you. :smarmy:

 

They are what I would call slightly crunchy, not dry (I have a P Johnson burnt orange knit that is really crispy) but with "good hand". They are comparable to the Viola Milano knit that I have, which was 50% more costly. They're not smooth and flimsy like the couple of Tie Bar knits I had purchased in the past.

I wouldn't mind seeing more reviews/articles regarding the suiting/tailored wear...it seems to be notably lacking compared to some other KW wares.

 

Note: lacking in the quantity of reviews sense, not quality.

Kent Wang suits are fantastic. I have 3. Good stuff. Need to order another couple.

Great stuff - what sort of cut are they most comfortable with? I know they have options for both soft & structured canvassing (as well as completely uncanvassed/unpadded). What sort of options have you gone with on that front? Is there a particular style they're good at?

Aren't quite a few of @Claghorn's non-SuSu jackets and suits KW? Perhaps he could weigh in. I really enjoy his fits, and I'm also thinking about giving Kent's MTM a shot.
post #5068 of 5900
Most of mine are either B&Tailor or my old mtm tailor in Seoul (3 SuSu, 3 Yount, and then a few random makers). I have a KW suit and a KW jacket. And some pants, ties, and maybe a dozen squares from him.

I'll write something on it sometime this week if y'all would like.

Yes please. My next jacket or suit will come from KW.

I've got two KW suits and need to order my third.  Both are soft shoulder.  Navy is standard lapel; grey is wide lapel.  Probably going to try the 3 roll 2 option with the wide lapel on the next go around.  Here's pictures:
