Not a single polo you have shown, to us has worked for you.
Try something else!

I don't think this is the right attitude. You don't like Kanye West, so face it: You don't like rap!

Why not send a PM to Kent Wang and mention the problem. Ask him for the measurements of the smaller size, including the armholes. That should help you make a decision. Even if you have to eat some of the cost of shipping, it is better then wearing a shirt that does fit you as well as it could.

Thanks, you're right! smile.gif I guess I could go through his bespoke line; I just don't want, to pay through the nose for a polo shirt! tongue.gif

Anyway, this should be in the advice thread, really, but I remember someone recommending Wang here (excuse the pun).

It's not about being open-minded in terms of your personal taste. Polos just don't look good on you (mind you, I think they look pretty bad on most people and I would never wear them myself).

Well his fits may not work well for you. That does not mean he doesn't produce quality clothing. Everyone's shape is a little different.

(Is this vein, of thought really happening?) It's not, that I don't suit any polo, it's that I can't seem, to find one which fits me well. I mean, T-shirts are, in principle, the same thing. And I'll laugh, if anyone said I wouldn't suit them, either! So, general consensus: Kent Wang doesn't fit me. Boy, working through the crap was hard! tongue.gif

Agreed, JMRouse: The quality of material, etc, is nice! I do think, the arms would be a little big for the average guy but hay ho!

It's a polo shirt man. You can take it to a seamstress and have the side seams and sleeve seems reduced for ten quid.

I would recommend you not color match the watchband and the shorts. Looks studied somehow ... But other than that, this is a great look.

I thought this was a nice touch, and I also commend the use of canvas sneaks which look a million times better than the SF approved bare chicken ankles and loafers.

^ this

 

If it´s not hugging your sholders (and biceps and triceps), then it probably won´t look good.

Thanks, but I like the effect, especialy in red, white and blue combinations.

Was that when you asked why Epaulet Rivets are so popular? I let it go because I only own one pair and didn't feel qualified to respond. I'll probably buy another pair the next time I need casual pants, though, because I really like the way they fit (slim but not skinny) and because they come in richer colors than what's generally available.

Hey, guys, I just picked up a new Kent Wang navy polo. A couple of questions: Why are the armholes so ridiculously big?! And, the chest/stomach isn't as slim, as I expected, but is this normal? The neck fits me well, and I like the thickness of the collar--although, I expected it to be firmer (although, that's a little OTT, maybe). So, yeah, not trying to blame you, guys, but maybe Kent Wang isn't the polo, to be suggesting to slim guys; my other polos have slimmer arms! (I am glad about the neck, though! smile.gif) Maybe, the answer is: Go to the fucking gym! tongue.gif
Sorry for the shitty pics. (I don't know why I look so orange! tongue.gif)



I'm perplexed, Alex. Before I decided to go MTM, I tried on several of Kent's RTW polos and found them very snug in the torso and very wide at the neck. Granted, you and I have different builds, but I'm wondering if Kent may have tweaked the measurements on his RTWs. As I recall, a LOT of SFers asked him to do so. Here's his sizing chart, but I don't remember what the numbers were back when I was shopping for polos.

The one you're wearing looks like it fits really well across the shoulders and around your neck. You just don't have the biceps -- yet -- to look really good in it. I recommend a gym membership (which I recommend to everyone, so don't take it personally) and a trip to an alterations tailor to have the sleeves and torso slimmed. Since postage to the States is prohibitive, you're probably better off fixing this shirt than trying on other sizes. If you're desperate to wear polos -- and you seem to be -- then consider Kent's MTM program. You can use the polo you own to make good decisions about what measurements to request on your MTMs.

By the way, have you washed that shirt yet? Kent's polos shrink a little, and like most garments, they don't shrink proportionally. Wash it a few times before you make any decisions.

Hey Alex! Ask this guy where he gets his polos!
