Kent Wang x Thick as Thieves OCBD slim fit shirts

post #1 of 162
Thread Starter 
We have collaborated with Thick as Thieves on the design of an oxford cloth button-down collar shirt (OCBD). The design recalls New England prep/trad sensibilities with very minimal features: no pockets, no back pleats, one button cuff. The materials are high quality, slightly above Band of Outsiders and Brooks Brothers Black Fleece. The fabric is a royal oxford which has a softer texture than regular oxford, 2-ply 80's (royal oxford typically maxes out at 80's, other weaves such as broadcloth of course go higher into 100's, 120's) 100% cotton. The buttons are large MOP, better than nearly all RTW brands except for perhaps some lines of Borrelli. Pattern-matching at the sleevehead and throughout. The fit is very slim, similar to Band of Outsiders, slightly slimmer than H&M, much slimmer than Polo Custom Fit and nearly all other RTW slim fits. Jason (of Thick as Thieves) modeling a shirt. This is actually a custom fit, slightly larger (+.25 chest and waist) than the standard size 15. All shirts sold. Size 15 This corresponds to a 15-33.5 in conventional retail sizing. Neck: 15 Shoulder: 18 Sleeve: 24.5 Chest: 21 Waist: 17.5 Length: 28.5 2 sold. Available: 0. Size 15.75 This corresponds to a 15.75-35.25 in conventional retail sizing. Neck: 15.75 Shoulder: 19.5 Sleeve: 25.5 Chest: 22 Waist: 19 Length: 29 1 sold. Available: 0. Size 16.5 This corresponds to a 16.5-35.75 in conventional retail sizing. Neck: 16.5 Shoulder: 19.5 Sleeve: 26 Chest: 22.5 Waist: 20 Length: 30 1 Sold. Available: 0. All shirts sold. Ordering Shirts in all sizes are $105. Free shipping in the US. International $10 shipped standard air mail. Please place your order on my website form. For research purposes please mention if you are a previous Thick as Thieves or Kent Wang customer. Any questions email sales@kentwang.com; please do not PM. Pre-order All shirts sold. I was only able to secure a small amount of the above blue stripe fabric, enough for about seven shirts. But in a few weeks I will have plenty more shirts in plain white and the below purple stripe. It's identical to the blue stripe, just a different color. Pre-orders are now being accepted for both the white and purple stripe. You will be placed on a waitlist and will not have to pay until the shirt is in my hands and ready to ship. The first batch should arrive around 12 June. White will be unlimited but we only have enough fabric for 11 in the purple stripe. To place your pre-order, please fill out my website form. For research purposes please mention if you are a previous Thick as Thieves or Kent Wang customer. Any questions email sales@kentwang.com; please do not PM. Other shirts I still have some of other slim fit shirts and boxers for sale -- not collaborations with Thick as Thieves. Reviews of my other shirts have all been positive: VMan says:

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).

I believe the actual construction on the shirt is equivalent to RLPL. One specific area that appears to be superior to most every shirt I have seen are the buttons.

...ordered the 15.75. I hope it's not too big. An H&M medium is about perfect on me. Thanks Kent and Jason for making this happen!

Interesting! I'm not sure the 15 will be an exact fit, but it looks close enough that I think I'll give it a go. I've been wanting a good white slim-fit OCBD for ages and this may be a solution. I look forward to seeing these new shirts for sale.

Kent Wang x Thick as Thieves? I don't know if the forum can handle that level of cool!
post #11 of 162

You should definitely do more of these, but not necessarily button-downs. It's the slimness I love, I have serious trouble finding shirts that fit my physique, and these look perfect. I'm just not a fan of button downs. But still, Kent Wang x TaT = super cool

I will be making many more shirts, non-collaborations. The collection will be mainly French cuff shirts and for the summer, linen/cotton button cuff with hidden button down.

Those of you with 14.5, how big is your chest and waist? The 15 is sized for a 36-37 chest, 30-31 waist. You're actually smaller than this?

I've edited the post to indicate that Jason's size is slightly larger (+.25 chest and waist) than the standard size 15. If you are close to his size then you should buy the size 15.
