Kent Wang slim fit shirts

post #1 of 58
Thread Starter 
Kent Wang is proud to introduce our new line of RTW slim fit business shirts. The line is currently still in development but I would like to preview a few prototypes. Features include: French cuff, mitred corner. Also depicted here is a Kent Wang glass cuff link, not yet for sale but will be soon. Pattern matching on the shoulders. Luxurious mother of pearl buttons. You will find that these are as thick as the finest buttons on the market (3.5 mm) but much greater diameter at 11 mm. Fabrics are all 2-ply, 100's, 120's and above from an Italian mill. The shirts are designed here in Austin and produced in Asia. The shirts are currently available in only one size, Small, which is based on my own measurements: Neck: 16 Shoulder: 18 Front Chest: 15.5 Chest: 11 x 19.5 Tummy: 9.75 x 17.5 Hip: 10.625 x 18.5 Length: Front 26.5 , Back 28 Sleeve: 23.5 x 9 x 2.5 Armhole: 17.75 Elbow: Down 9.5 , wide 13.25 This is genuinely slim. Not Polo slim or European slim but more like H&M or Zara slim. Just measure against your shirt and see. Larger sizes will be made in the future. However, all cuts will be slim. Pricing has not been finalized but it will be around $90-110. Yes, there are some MTM options that can be had for around that figure but not everyone can be in Hong Kong, New York, etc. For RTW, I do not know of any other maker that approaches this level of quality at this price, especially not in a slim cut. I look forward to your comments. I will also be bringing a few of these shirts to New York, so those interested may see them in person.

Is there anything you don't do?

Awesome!

I will definitely be interested in larger sizes in the future.

Any possibility of barrel cuffs?

Might you do some button down collars?

Your neck is 16"? I would've guessed no bigger than 14.5.

I've never seen such a complex set of measurements for a shirt

Not in the near future. French cuffs encourage the sale of cuff links.

Not in the near future. I do not plan to offer many variations, as I simply do not have the volume to do so.

Yeah, I wouldn't have though so either. My neck is fairly long, so perhaps that hides it.

If you do make some barrel cuff w/ button down collar.. i'd be interested.. In the mean time, do you have any pictures of the shirts being worn? The buttons look a little too large to me, but they might not look so big when being worn.

Er, you might want to photoshop those measurements onto a picture of a shirt. I'm not sure where you're measuring everything there.

Interested in seeing larger sizes.

Since your OWN neck is "fairly long" would you make collars on shirts higher than usual?
Are those collars lined?

No, the collar height is fairly standard, as are all the measurements, really. Yes, the collars have an interlining that is a bit softer compared to the interlinings I have from Jantzen and WW Chan.

Just ignore the measurements you're not used to seeing. The basic ones should be sufficient for determining size.
