Kent Wang Shirt Review (w/ 8 pics)

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I just received my Kent Wang sample shirt that I purchased from the man himself. This is the size M shirt. First thought - I am very impressed with the fit. I am a 38-40R and this shirt fits perfectly. When I try on typical shirts with S, M, L-type sizing, I find that the body on a Medium is too baggy, and the sleeves of a Small are too short - this KW shirt does not suffer from either problem. For the record, I am 5'11 and 175 lbs. The fabric is really nice. I think this is quite a versatile stripe that looks good with dark ties that have a subtle woven pattern. The buttons are thick MOP and feel substantial. I really like the collar and cuff shape as well. I look forward to seeing what other fabrics Kent will offer, because I will certainly purchase from him again. Construction, fabric, and detailing are superior to similarly-priced shirts. I would say this is on par with shirts in the $200-$250 range (Robert Talbott, Zegna). At $105 this shirt represents an excellent value, and I am satisfied with my purchase. Here is Kent's original thread with the specifics of the shirts.

Are those felt seams on the sides of the shirt? Very nice fit.

Looks awfully short - fits you well though in the shoulders and arm.

The shirt can be worn untucked and look fine, and when I tuck it in (which I will be doing 99% of the time) it doesn't feel like the tails will pull out. Also, the jeans that I am wearing are worn low.

I'm actually quite impressed by the fit, looks great. Although I'm not a fan of wearing a dress shirt untucked with any type of pants (including jeans), it does look fine untucked as well. I'm curious to see how it fits tucked, without the jacket on.

Looks incredible. We have similar proportions. I might buy one soon.

I don't typically wear dress shirts untucked (especially with French cuffs) but did so in the photo to show the length.

looks great! so the M is $10 more than the S?

Thanks, VMan for the review and working with me to get the measurements right.

Correct. The S is $95 and M will be $105.

This is great, because I don't like absorbing the cost of fabric for the guy who buys the 50XL suit when I buy the 38R. Fabric is very expensive, and a big part of the end retail price.

I think the length is good (maybe a touch short) for wearing untucked. I've just come to prefer tucked in dress shirts a little longer.

Maybe it's my imagination but I think they lay better around the waist because of it.
