While I can't comment on Kent's shoe horns specifically*, I splurged a while back for a long shoe horn and it's one of those little things that makes life a bit better. Note that I got a 10" and, in retrospect, wish I got a 12" or even longer.

(*although I didn't get mine from KW, I'm sure his are up to his usual excellent standards)

How is the 12" one better than the 6" one (that I currently have)?

No of course not, it is a shoe horn after all, any cheap plastic one will work. But that is not why we are here on StyleForum.

Don't get me wrong. I participated in the KW umbrella MassDrop even though I have a cheap umbrella that works. So I'm not saying to buy cheap all the time. We each place different value on different things. I've no doubt that KW's shoe horn will be nicer than the cheap plastic one you currently have. And if you buy a shoe horn that's longer than what you have, well that could be a benefit. Is it enough a benefit to justify the cost? Only you can answer that.

Thanks, appreciate it!

Unlikely at the moment, but you can always look at the Huddersfield website or the Merino Bros (Hong Kong agents for Huddersfield and others) website. I know Merino Bros is happy to ship swatches, but not sure about Huddersfield. Let me know how it turns out if you contact Huddersfield.

 

It's our new OCBD2 style. We're transitioning all our RTW OCBD shirts to this collar, which has longer collar points and more of a roll. If you're ordering MTM, just mention OCBD2 when ordering.

@Kent Wang Are you able to get other fabrics that aren't currently on the website? Specifically for a MTM jacket?

Stick with me here on the "it's the little things" because this is, truly, a little thing. But with a longer horn, it's easier to use when you are sitting;a shorter one makes me contort to get it down to shoe level to use. Note that I'm 6'3, so a bit on the taller side.

I never thought about it or that it mattered a whit, but now I can see where a longer one would work even better. It's one of those things I would have thought ridiculous until I tried it. Granted, it still a pretty penny for something of such limited use, but - like I said - sometimes, it's the little things.

I had a 40cm one in Korea. It was fantastic.

Ertu you should buy the shoe horn from Kent Wang. I bought mine from the Hanger Project and though it's great I had to pay a lot for shipping to Canada and also got hit with duty.

Kent Wang charges very little for shipping a small item and you won't get hit.

Yes, now we can order practically anything from any English mill. Italian mills we're still looking into, but if you have something in mind we can try to order it. We should make this more clear on the website but it is quite new and we're working out how to show this.

Purchased my first pair of Kent Wang dress shoes and they look amazing. However, I'm not sure if this is normal. It seems like the heel is slightly taller than the outsole when you put pressure on the heel. Not really sure how to explain it, but I've attached some pictures. The 1st and 2nd pictures are of the KW shoes with pressure being put on the heel. The 3rd picture is of an Allen Edmonds Park Avenue with pressure also being put on the heel (and how the outsole is still touching the ground). I don't own many dress shoes, and this is the first pair that I've paid more than $300 for so I'm not sure if this is standard in dress shoes.

 

When I put pressure on heel the outsole rises above the ground:

AE Park Aves for comparison. Outsole doesn't go above the ground:

For those of you who ordered using the WBill linen, what price tier was it?
